You'll have to drop by here tomorrow (Saturday) to see Day 5 winners and the winner of the BIG GIVEAWAY!

First up today are some very fun retro images from Graphic Market.  You will love browsing through all the goodies!

Don't you just love the colors and look of these images?  All I did was add a snowflake (the paper is also from Graphic Market) and make a couple of tags with twine. Love them!

Giveaway #1
Graphic Market is giving one set of your choice!  Just comment on this post and let me know you would like to win!

I've used gorgeous images from Janet's store Digital Paper to create some mason jar lid ornaments.  

 I made several mason ring pumpkins and I had all the lids left over.  So I was looking at some of Janet's goodies and saw these circles and it just clicked!  I had these ornaments available at my last show and people just loved them!  I've had to make quite a few more.  They are a nice weight and are just lovely and shiny!

Janet has several circle sets that would work perfectly for these ornaments.  Size the circles to match the lid.

Here you need to make a decision.  You could make shaker ornaments - just follow the directions for the shadowbox card from Visions of Sugarplums Day One.  Or you can do glittery, shiny ones.  

Discard the image from the second image.  Stack the rings and glue.  Glue the frame on top. Glue the whole stack on top of the image.  Now you have a nice, thick base to create the ornament.

You want the sides to look nice, so don't skip this part!  Plus it's a great way to add the hanger at the same time!

Now you're ready to make it shiny.  Fill the space you've created with the rings with Diamond Glaze and sprinkle with glitter.  Let dry.  Now decorate!  Oh, so pretty!

  23. The jar lid ornaments are such a good idea. I have 50 or more AOL CD's I've kept for years I knew I could use them for something!

  24. I would think you could also use canned lids from vegetable cans that are opened up with a can opener that leaves no sharp edge. Then punch a whole in the bottom and add a tassel. Make to decorate both sides.

  25. These would be so cute for my annual Christmas cookie exchange. I always do a craft. 🎅🏻🤶🏻 🍪🎄
