Be-Stitched newsletter, and finally a small snowflake that I made just playing around with stitch counts. While making the Ten Point Snowflake I discovered this YouTube video demonstrating Marie's way of making a split chain. It is the easiest way that I have tried so far. I now have a new favorite way to tat a split chain. Yeah!! Thanks for all who are willing to share their knowledge to keep our craft growing.
I made some items to share with co-workers and will be taking them to work tomorrow.
Each of the techs will receive their initial. These were cut from a cartridge I borrowed from a friend. The letters are chip board from Hobby Lobby's Chip Decor Line. I painted the sides and cut pattern paper for the front and a magnet for the back. I also made some Tic Tac Covers using Make The Cut and my electronic cutter. I used Stampin Up's All Dressed Up die to cut the dresses. I used ribbon, flat back pearls and rhinestones to add some bling. Each contains a Chap Stick. Every girl needs a LiL Black Dress, don't you know!
The last thing of this post is a recycling project. Using soda cans I made these ornaments. I saw this demonstrated at a scrapbooking expo this summer. The demonstrator used the technique to make items to attach to cards, but when I saw these dies I knew how I wanted to use the technique.
Hope you have a Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!
Thanks for stopping by, happy crafting,
