I just love the Snow Fairy by Alisa Ramirez. So pretty for this time of year and versatile to use on cards, pennants, ornaments and much more. I' ve used her for both of these projects.A two sided oranament was made from several layers of Spellbinder Scalloped circles, a fan fold circle edged with a MS punch. The pretty little Snow Fairy is water colored, cut out and added to the fan fold. A few jingle bells and jewels finish this ornament off.
This one was made with 12 Spellbinder ornaments cut and attached to form the honeycomb ornament. A top from an old ornament, bow made with ribbon dyed to match the paper and the same water colored Snow Fairy. A few beads to finish it off
The last project is a pennant using the The Christ Child by Tricia Moore. The image was water colored and cut out for the center pennant. Several layers cut and one using the Spellbinder pennant. Snowflakes, buttons, ribbon, jingle bells and glitter for some embellies.
Thanks for dropping by and joining our Pixie Cottage Blog Hop.

Wednesday means a new challenge over at The Pixie Cottage. Our theme is Last Minute Gifts & Cards and as always you can chose to use the sketch.
Also wanted to say a big thanks to all of your for your thoughts and prayers! Excited to say mom finally got to come home last night. She has a long road to recovery but at least she is home.
This gift set is for my nephew. I started with a recycled cracker can which I covered in red paper. The Three Gingerbread Men image by Tina Akonom is found at Michelle's Scrapbooking & More. I stamped the image twice, water colored and added the white "frosting" trim then cut one of the image into two pieces.
Part of the image was attached to the label cut from the Spellbinder label #20 folded over the bag of candy.
The other whole gingerbread man was added to the tag and attached to the jar full of cocoa mix and marshmallows. After stitching a couple dps together I added the other image to the layers and attached to the can. The top was covered with couple layers cut with the Spellbinder scalloped circle. Then sentiment was cut out with the Spellbinder scalloped oval. Some red ribbons to add a little festive note and viola.

Now this is to show that snowflakes come in more that just white LOL. A simple little card with a little wreath made by punching lots of snowflakes in several colors of green. Some of them are glittered. After I assembled the wreath a little red bow was added and all was added to the layer of gold paper then again onto the white. A little Merry Christmas sentiment stamped and cut out with a Spellbinder flower die. This is a fun way to quickly decorate a card.

I made a Christmas wreath with a bazillion fan medallions, well at least it felt as if I made a bazillion of them! I also made a few of the little folded tube ornaments. While taking care of my mother this holiday week I took lots of strips of paper and made medallions in my spare time. I didn't give much thought to assembly, should have made them smaller. You know the good old hindsight deal lol!Using several different papers by Bo Bunny, Stampin Up and Authentique. Lots of Stickles and a few buttons. My sweet little water colored image is one of the new Pixie Cottage stamps, Not even a mouse found at Michelle's Scrapbooking & More. This will be a little gift to cheer my sweet mom up. The team has some great inspiration for you so stop by.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend. Heart Song has a great challenge for you this week! It is a banner and/or buttons. I love banners don't you?
My banner is rather simple today as I have had very little crafting time this week. My mom is home from the hospital and I have been staying with her taking care of her since Wed eve. Sorry I have been MIA but she doesnt have a computer so I have not been able to get around to visit all of you and comment on your creations. Hope to be back on track this week.
I cut out the purple using a Spellbinder banner then stitched on the dotted dp. A few fan fold medallions using a dp with edges frosted with diamond dust Stickles and MS snowflake punch centers. I used the Heart Song Nativity image found Here, and cut out baby Jesus for the center banner.The large stars are cut with a Spellbinder layered with one covered in stickles and then the Cherry Lynn Butterflies added. Stars and snowflakes with lots of silver Stickles along with some buttons for few embellies. There is lots of Stickles making lots of sparkle but just couldnt seem to capture it. The banners are all put together with the old antique crocheted lace. For the sentiment I used part of the Scripture from Luke 2. Come on over and join us!!
