Ornaments, Ornaments, Ornaments!

 The glitter ornaments were made using the Future floor wax and some Martha Stewart glitter.  I've seen these done on several blogs.  They are so cool and easy to do, as well as extremely economical!  I gave these to my parents and even my mother was impressed!  I can't say I'm as happy with the vinyl since it was very difficult to get it to lay flat.  I put 2010 on the back and I guess I cut it too big so there were some wrinkles in it.  They still look pretty elegant and I'll be making more for my tree!   
This is an image from Lettering Delights Trim The Tree set. I used the awesome Make The Cut software to cut this out using metallic paper and holographic vinyl.  The picture just doesn't do it justice!  I wish I had other colors of the glittery vinyl......hint hint, Santa are you listening?  I got the idea to use vinyl from Joy at Joyslife.com.  It makes the more delicate cuts come out much cleaner than using paper! And if you're wondering how to use Make The Cut with Lettering Delights be sure to check out Under A Cherry Tree, she rocks over there and has plenty of tuts on how to do it!  I also added a little bling with the irock gems.

Here's the Santa tag transformed into an ornament.  Plenty of stickles were used here!  I would love to get some more stickles, I mean I just love that stuff!
The snowflake was cut with American Crafts metallic paper and DCWV glitter paper.  It's pretty hard to see any glitter in this picture, you certainly don't see all the stickles I used!  I must say I prefer the paper snowflakes to the real ones!   Well, that's all the pictures I have loaded for now.  I have made more, but haven't got pictures of them.  Just thought I'd chime in and show I haven't really been slacking, I LOVE to craft!  It is terribly cold in my craft room right now making it difficult not to freeze my fingers off.  I'm hoping for this awful weather to let up.  Can anybody say SPRING???  Until next time............
