Christmas Light-DCWV

Welcome DCWV fans! It’s Jenifer from the DCWV Social Media Design Team!  Today I would like to share this beautiful Christmas light that I made in a jar and decorated with some beautiful flowers from the Oh What fun and the Foiled Vellum stacks.
Have you see these awesome Fairy Lanterns over at the Pixie Hill?  She has a tutorial and these are amazing and I have already made several.  

The red flowers are from the Oh What fun Stack and the gold foiled flowers are from the Foiled Vellum stack.  I just love the reds and golds together it makes the lid so beautiful.  All of the Ribbons are from May Arts and the beads are from Blue Moon Beads.


I didn't make my silhouette a fairy but went with Santa Checking his list.  These jars are just so much fun to make and the possibilities are just endless.  

Supplies used:
Oh What Fun stack-DCWV
Foiled Vellum-DCWV
Ribbons-May Arts

Winter Ornament-WOW

Happy Holidays Wow fans :)  this is Jenifer here with you today to share a fun ornament that I spruced up with a little bit of sparkle to add to your tree.

Earlier this year I found these tiny pine cones on the ground and collected a handful and they have been waiting for just the right project.  As you can see I added a little bit of texture paste on them and sprinkled a bit of the glacier mint and primary frozen embossing powder on them and it looks like there is a nice layer of ice and snow on them.  I love how it turned out.

I added some little white paper flowers and pearls and bells to help finish my ornament off.  Have you ever thought about sprucing up some of your ornaments?  Now I hope I have inspired you to give it a try :)

Embossing powders-

Joy Pillow-TOW

Welcome ThermOWeb fans, Jenifer here with you today to share a fun quick Holiday Decor project.  I know this time of year gets crazy busy but I always like to whip up some quick fun pieces.

ThermOWeb supplies used:
StitchNSew Extra High Loft Fleece
Other:
Denim


Iron on the Letters using the Icraft Hot Melt Adhesive, the key for success is waiting until it is completely cooled to remove the paper backing.  Once cooled peel off the paper.


Adhere the foil with an Iron and again wait until completely cooled before removing the foil.  I am foiling on Denim and so because of the texture of the fabric I get an inconsistent covering of the foil.  I am ok with this it makes it look antiqued :)  but you may want to test on your surface before you work on your final project.


Here is my finished pillow.  I love it like it is nice and simple but you could take it a step further and make a fun poinsettia flower pin to put on it as well.

For the flower I took 3 6 1/2" squares of Extra High Loft Fleece and cut free hand a 4 petaled flower and layered them on top of each other.  I then put a foil circle in the center of the flower and attached it to the pillow.  

This project took about 45 minutes start to finish.

Christmas Wreath-DCWV

Welcome DCWV fans! It’s Jenifer from the DCWV Social Media Design Team!  I was so excited to receive the Christmas Village stack, as soon as I got it I went to work cutting out all the pieces and putting them together.  This little house looks a little bit like our house and so I thought it would be a perfect addition to our front door.




I layered several ribbons around a grapevine wreath then as a last step I anchored down some tulle with some beautiful dark red ribbon go give my landscape a soft snowy feel.  I did glue down a base to the bottom of my house so that I had a surface to glue to the tulle.

This beautiful green charm is from Blue Moon beads and it is the perfect addition to my wreath.

Supplies Used:
Christmas Village Stack-DCWV
Ribbons-May Arts
Blue Moon Beads
Bottle Brush trees

Thank you so much for stopping by today, I would love to see what you do with the Christmas Village Stack, leave me a link in the comments and I will stop by and check it out.

Kindle sleeve-TOW

Hi this is Jenifer here with you today to share a quick and easy holiday gift for anyone on your list that has a tablet.
I let the beautiful fabrics from Blend be a showcase for my design.

I used some HeatNBond and a die to cut a doily as a base for my flower in coordinating Blend fabric.

  I love using the transfer adhesive to help accentuate some of the design elements of the fabric.  It is easy to highlight some elements of your fabric with some Deco Foil.  Here I used Pumpkin, Pink Melon and Teal.

Even the back is cute :)

Album in a box-May Arts


Hi there May Arts fans this is Jenifer here with you today to share a project that I made.  To be honest I am absolutely in love with this and I can't wait to get my hands on some more cigar boxes to make some more.

I made a little album to go into the beautiful box.  I love it so much I might have to keep this one for myself.

The first step was to cover the box in beautiful paper.  Then decorate as desired.  I went with the blues and silvers in the papers and used beautiful ribbons that coordinated with the papers.


Here are some pictures of the album.




There are little pockets and journaling spaces to store pictures and memories and when it is all filled out then you have yourself a beautiful memento to pull out and put on display every holiday season.

Other Supplies Used:
Cigar Box

Sparkle wreath- WOW

Welcome WoW fans :)  This is Jenifer here with you today to share a fun sparkly wreath I made.  It is so cool my daughter stole it from me before the powders were even dry..  LOL
I cut a circle ring out of a piece of cardboard and then stamped and embossed an entire sheet of leaves.  I layered them on the cardboard and added a fun ribbon tassel and a fantastic glitter velvet bow.  The glitter reindeer is an old Christmas ornament that went perfect with the beautiful sparkle of the powders.

Here is a close up of some of the sparkle.  I hope you have enjoyed my project today.

Patriotic Pillow-TOW

Hi there Therm O Web fans :)  Jenifer here today to share a fun patriotic pillow.  Pillows are such a great way to try out fun new techniques.  I have been wanting to try this quilt as you go technique from Maureen Cracknell, this pillow was the perfect opportunity to give it a try.

Here is the finished pillow.
After following Maureen's instructions you are left with a beautiful piece of work that only took a few scraps of fabric and a little bit of time.  I wanted to decorate my patriotic pillow with some silver star foiled stars.  Cut out some star shapes out of the Hot Melt Adhesive and randomly place them on the pillow.  After allowing the Hot Melt Adhesive to cool completely peel off the paper and iron on the foil.  Allow the foil to cool completely before peeling off.

Trim is a nice way to add a little bit of extra something to pillows and projects.  One thing I like to do is use a little bit of fabric fuse to help hold my trim down and keep in place before I sew.

A close up of the lovely shiny stars and the fun ric rac trim giving it a little bit of a fun scallop.

Therm O Web supplies used:

If you are hesitant in trying a new technique or using new products do something small to start out with.  I had so much fun with the quilt as you go technique I can't wait to try it again.

Christmas Countdown with DCWV and May Arts

Hi there DCWV and May Arts fans, Jenifer here with you today to share a fun Christmas countdown display that I made using the new Christmas stack and some beautiful May Arts ribbons.

I found this tutorial on how to fold an origami shadow box and so I used it as my frame.  Then just decorated as I desired.

Here is a close up of the flower cluster with some of the lovely May Arts ribbons and leaves.

I hope you liked my project today and make sure you stop by the rest of the week for the other projects we have planned.
