Hey everyone!

How were your Holidays? We hope everyone had a nice safe and calm Holiday season. This year was definitely different that any other year, and we hope you made the best of it!

Our incredibly talented design team decided to get together and craft unique, one of a kind Ornaments for each other. Check them out!

Chris’s Ornament

I was so excited to get a chance to play and spread a little Christmas cheer to my new friends at Fotobella! I really fell in love with the Ciao Bella Northern Lights papers, and decided to create my card and ornament using these papers. The papers made for a perfect background for my Snowglobe. I am so happy with how this turned out! You need to buy these products!

Kristine’s Ornament

I used the new steampunk-themed Christmas Time collection by Graphic 45 to make a matching card and ornament for Diane. Using the 8x8 paper pad, the Santa and postage stamp images from one of the cut-apart pages and a border strip were perfect for this. The black and white checkerboard pattern makes the Santa image stand out!

For the ornament, I also used the Christmas Time collection. I created a mini book with plain cardstock and curled the edges to give it dimension. Next, adding more images from the cut-apart sheet to decorate the pages and sealed the entire book with Mod Podge before adding sequins and a few poinsettias and holly leaves.

Diane’s Ornament

Hello! Today I am sharing the Christmas Card and Ornament I made for the FotoBella design team secret exchange. It was created using the Graphic 45 Christmas Time Collection. I used the 12 x 12 papers, sticker sheet and chipboard pieces along with a few items from my personal stash. I started by creating a large rosette, and took a left over wooden star from the Graphic 45 Christmas Time monthly card making kit (available at Fotobella.com) and covered it with the black & white check paper. Then, I cut some doilies, added some stickers and poinsettia flowers. This was so fun to make and gift, I hope you are inspired by this project and will give it a try for yourself.

ReNae’s Ornament

My ornament for Kristine looks just like a Christmas cookie! I painted an old resin frame with Stamperia Allegro paint in pastel pink and embellished it with glitter, gems and other ephemera from the Sugar Cookie collection by Prima. I placed an image from the paper collection inside the frame, then fashioned a sash from card stock and adhered it to the front of the ornament for a festive look! This was embellished with gemstones, flowers and a little metal starburst charm, also from the collection. The coordinating card was created in much the same way, except a glitter diecut was used to frame the image. The green glass glitter is a sparkling way to highlight the Victorian image of both card and ornament!

Thank you for joining us today and enjoying our talented team!

Stay safe, and continue to create!
