30 Ornaments in 30 Days . . . Day 12!  AND, a new release BLOG HOP!

I’m so excited to show you what we’ve been up to this week!  I’ve released a new template, and this time it is a REAL ornament.  I’m calling it the Drop Ornament.  I’m so terrible at names.  BUT, it kinda reminded me of a lemon drop, so there ya go.
The Drop Ornament Template Set contains 2 templates in all of the formats you are used to:  layered psd (for digi gals who use Photoshop), png (for people who use photo editing programs that can’t open Photoshop), and pdf format (for …

30 Ornaments in 30 Days . .  . Day 4!

For today’s ornament, I decided to go the “If I shove it in the tree, I can call it an ornament” route.
Mmmmm . . . lovely!
I used my Tall Box Template Set and some digital papers by Kelley Mickus, from the Grab Bag she will be releasing on Thursday.  (Good thing these gals don’t stalk my blog, or they would know that I’m giving you sneak peeks!!)
I have SO many ideas for using this template.  What I wanted to do was poke a hole through the top and bottom, then …

30 Ornaments in 30 Days . . . Day 3!

30 Ornaments in 30 Days . . . Day 2!

I’m still here!  Made it to Day 2!!  LOL!  (Going strong, right?)
For today’s ornament, I used my Door Hanger Template Set to create a little box that can be hung on the tree to hold a gift card, cash, a coupon book for back-rubs, etc.  I also thought it would be a great starting point for a Christmas morning scavenger hunt.  Have you ever needed to hide a particularly big present elsewhere in the house?  If so, send the kids on a scavenger hunt, and leave the first clue in …

30 Ornaments in 30 days!  New Blog Series!

I must be INSANE.  I’m actually going to attempt to show you 30 papercraft ornaments made from my templates in 30 days!  You MUST understand that I am a teeny-tiny bit lazy, so to commit to something like this is big.  Huge.  But, I have the first 2 days worth of ornaments done, so I guess I should start, eh?  {giggle!}  I’m hoping that my amazing Creative Team members help me out, because they are SO much more creative and artsy than me!
If you want some fun inspiration for creating …
