More Christmas in July

Hello, – thanks for joining me today.

I want to show you a Christmas project I just made. Yes…..I want in on that Christmas in July too 😉

I’ve been meaning to make this one for a looooong time, but as you know, Jodi keeps putting awesome stuff out there so I got distracted, but now I finally succeeded.

The 3D Church Card Holder from the JGW Colonial Christmas kit:

I made the Church in AC Cardstock in Vanilla and decorated with Graphic 45 papers from the Christmas Carol Collection.

I inked all the edges with Chalk Ink from Ingvild Bolme and added a poinsettia from Prima to the front of the Church.

Now it’s ready come Christmas time for all the Christmas cards coming in from near or far……

….or simply as a Christmas decoration with lights in it.

My First Wreath

Hello and thanks for joining me once again on the blog this week 🙂

I have always been intimidated by wreaths. The idea of having to decorate it yourself like a flower arrangement, is just a no-go for me. I’m terrible at arranging flowers and the like.

But then I discovered the Folded Star Sprigs 3D Wreath from the JGW Colonial Christmas kit and I jumped to the challenge.

I used AC Cardstock in Spinach for the ring and the outside sprigs and Spinach, Leaf and Moss for the filler sprigs. I made more than shown in the tutorial to make the wreath look a bit fuller.

I didn’t make the stars like Jodi did, because they are very similar to some folded stars that are traditional here in Denmark and that I have tons of since my mom and Mother-in-Law folded or actually braided lots for me (I just can’t seem to get the hang of it ) The only difference between my stars and Jodis is that mine are double sided as to Jodis being one-sided (and proberbly a lot easier to glue down) I used hot glue to glue down the stars and the small silver baubles.

All in all this wreath was very easy to assemble. The only difficulty I had, was gluing the ring together but it doesn’t have to be perfect since it’s going to be covered with sprigs anyways.

Thanks for joining me today – stay tuned for more Christmas projects soon.
