Day 3 and some kit loving

Welcome to the Greatest Gift of the Season blog hop! 

Welcome back!  This is day 3 of our inspiration week at Scrapping Everyday Miracles; make sure that you stop there first to get all the details on our hop and the prizes you can win.  Every day this week I am showcasing different ornaments I made (some good and some that you don't want to try) and I will be showing you how to recreate them, here is just a snapshot of a few.

Click here for my giveaway and the secret word!

Next up is an ornament that I probably wouldn't bother with again...  Alcohol ink!  It goes in so nicely and one turned out great, the second took a little effort but the end result was good, and the last one just didn't work!  I have seen this accomplished before so good luck if you decide to try! 

This was the good one!  :)

I just pulled out the handy dandy glue gun and made then into something much better!

I also received my November kit from Burlap & Buttercups (one of our sponsors for the hop) and have been creating whenever I got tired of being so messy from my ornaments.  I would have to say these turned out much better than my alcohol ink balls!

This was made for their sketch challenge - using 2 border punches as required.

Materials used:  Nov Burlap & Buttercups kit - American Crafts thickers, MME, Cosmo Cricket, EK Success punch, Fiskar punch, Basic Grey, 7 Gypsies, Perfect Pearls, October AFternoon, Tattered Angels, sketch provided

This was made for the scraplift challenge - I scraplifted a DT member from the Nook - I love how she creates simple layouts, yet stunning!  Lilith's Scrapbooking Venture
Materials used:  Nov Burap & Buttercups kit - MMe, Prima, Basic Grey, American Crafts, Tattered Angels, Tuskineo
