Joy is in the air...

I know it has been awhile since I have had a kits2remember project to share and I am sorry about that. Life has just gotten in the way. But I am here now with a little project.

I wanted a hanging decoration for the doorknob on the front door for Christmas. So I decided to use three 4inch acrylic circles from k2r. I covered them all with some Daisy Bucket papers. The "ribbon" I made by cutting strips of the pattern papers and wetting them so that I could crinkle them up. After they were dry I stretched them out a little bit and adhered to the back of the circles. It gives the look of ruffled ribbon but with the sturdiness of paper. I painted some Deja View alphas white and adhered to the centers, then added some bling snowflakes to each circle. I punched my holes with the crop-a-dile and added ribbon. I used a stickles bottle to insure my loops were the same size, except for the top one I made sure it would fit over a doorknob. Voila it is done!
Normally I don't use pinks at Christmas but I really like how this one turned out. You could easily replace the snowflakes with some other embellie and it would work for a new baby. You could add another circle and change the word. So many possibilities.

supplies: kits2remember acrylic, Daisy Bucket pp, Deja View alphas, MAMBI and Paper Studio bling, Making Memories paint, ribbon

While I was making Christmas decorations I made a little new puppy ornament for a friend of mine. Their little one is getting a new puppy for Christmas this year and she wanted something to give him ahead of time to give a few hints. So here is one thing.
I used an atc size acrylic panel from k2r, pattern paper from the upcoming Christmas Pets ekit from Making Handmade Cards and paint.
I painted the edges of the acrylic with red paint and let it dry. Then I added a piece of pp to the back of the acrylic and a small piece to the front to add some depth. The little puppy is from the ekit and he is layered. I added some stickles and the year and I was done!
I will have other samples from the Christmas Pets ekit from Making Handmade Cards posted on Wed! So be sure to come back to see more of this ekit!
