    New Ornaments, FREE Shipping & FLASH Sale!

    Filed under Black Friday Sale 2016, Collage Sheets, Giveaways, Layered Ornaments Kit, Newsletters, Teri Calia

    Hooray! It’s day 3 of this holiday weekend sale! FREE shipping on orders over $50 (for orders shipping to USA) now through Monday, November 28th.

    FLASH SALE! I was inspired by the cute ornaments below by Teri Calia, and how you could tie charms onto the ribbons so the ENTIRE Christmas & Winter Charms Section is On Sale at 25% to 50% off!

    That Silver Snowflake Charm Set at right is also included in today’s Giveaway! The sale ends Monday night, November 28th at midnight PST!

    Round Layered Ornaments Kit

    Yay! More Christmas ornaments! There are eight new designs of Round Chipboard Ornament Layers Sets — and 2 of my favorites are in this kit:
    - Flying Sleigh Ornament Layers
    - Hanging Stockings Ornament Layers (how cute it that? A cat is putting up his/her Christmas stocking!)

    Each of the ornament sets includes 2 laser-cut chipboard shapes (and clear plastic low-profile domes) to make an ornament that you can put glitter, sequins, micro beads (slices of polymer canes?) inside!

    The set comes with 2 heavy chipboard outer rings, 2 clear plastic domes, and a die-cut (lighter weight chipboard) silhouetted insert to sandwich in the middle of your ornament.

    Or you can put paper behind that silhouette (which allows you to use 2 silhouettes (one on each side of the ornament) or a different collage sheet image on the flipside).

    Super easy to glue together (just be patient and let the glue dry overnight or your glitter may get stuck around the edges of the dome). Instructions included (short and sweet!)

    And here’s what Teri said after making those cute samples: “I love making them, it’s easy and fun!”

    PLUS this kit includes TWO new collage sheets! Both have 2-1/2″ diameter circles that fit the Chipboard Ornament Layer Sets.

    Snowy Winter Day Ornaments Collage Sheet
    Aw… look at all those cuties! I chose images of kids (or Santa) outside in the snow. So you can add glitter as faux snow to shake around in your ornaments. Plus some phrases to layer overtop from vintage postcards (and that holly bow fits perfectly over the top edge of any of the circles, with a few bits of leaves overlapping onto the image).

    Gnome & Mushroom Ornaments Collage Sheet
    A slightly different take on Christmas (and very cute)! Tons of images of gnomes getting ready for Christmas. I particularly like the ones with a tiny gnome pushing or rolling a mushroom almost as big as he is.

    (And remember: all the collage sheets are on sale for 15% off (and the digital downloads are on sale for 40% off!), so those new collage sheets are on sale, too!)

    More info, photos and artwork are on the Round Layered Ornaments Kit page.

    Learn more in Teri’s post and don’t forget to come back as tons of items from Teri’s Supply List are included in today’s Giveaway!

      My favorite has to be the ice skaters. Brings back fond memories of ice skating as a child. 😀

    17. Denise Bryant Says:

      All of the ornaments are gorgeous, but the most appropriate for this for me is the Deer in Woods design! We have had 3 fawns and 2 does in our area since the spring, often hanging out in our yard. It has been such a joy watching the babies grow, and now I have to look twice to figure out if I’m looking at one of the babies or one of the full grown deer.

    18. Jennie Ingram Says:

      Sana sleigh!

    19. Winnie Says:

      I love the child on the staircase. So cute!

    20. barb macaskill Says:

      These ornaments are fantastic! I especially love the Deer in Woods and Fairy Candle ornaments! Although, I also really love Stairs Christmas Morning too! We have had 3 Does and 3 Fawns that literally come within 2 feet of our back door since March. Earlier this week I caught motion out of the corner of my eye and looked out to see an 8 point Buck mount one of the Does! That was quite a surprise!
      Thankfully, hunting season ends tonight at sunset and I hope they all make it through! Just a few more hours to go!
      Fingers crossed and thanks for the chance to make these sweet ornaments!

      I really like the Deer in the woods one, although they are all really nice. I would personalize them for my friends.

    35. Marilyn Ray Says:

      I love Santa and sleigh. It’s the best. A close second though is the deers in the trees.

      Those are absolutely magical. It is hard to pick a favorite… Either the fairy candles or the deer… So much fun.

    50. Carol Slowik Says:

      Hard to choose between the deer and the ice skater’s! Love them both!

    51. Janet T Says:

      I love Santa’s sleigh and the reindeer.

    52. Ramona Says:

      I think the deer are the sweetest!

    53. Karen Says:

      Well they are all just wonderful but I think the Santa’s sleigh and reindeer is my favorite with a very very close second the fairies and child. A nice collection and they would be fun to make up some ornaments to tie on gifts.

    54. Nancy Olsen Says:
