Christmas Ornament Shadow Box

Do you make your own Christmas Decorations??

I want to share with you an easy project I created for my Christmas decor this year!  A Christmas Ornament ShadowBox, two actually :)

I used an 8x8 shadowbox frame I found at Michaels, and small ornaments that I found at Target.  I added a piece of patterned paper to the back of the frame, placed the ornaments inside, then added "Merry & Bright" cut from Artiste in white vinyl on the top of the glass.  



Super easy and fun project.  

What have YOU created for your Christmas Decor???

Seasonal Expressions Blog Hop



Welcome to our Seasonal Expressions Blog Hop!  Today we are featuring artwork created with products from Close To My Heart's new Seasonal Expressions Book.   We have over 30 Consultants participating in this circular hop so when you get back to me, you will know you have visited all of the blogs!  If you came from Kelly's blog you are on the right track!  If you get lost along the way you can find the entire participating hoppers HERE.

Today I want to share with you my SHE-art!  I created this at the CTMH Team Builders event last month and I absolutely love it!  When Jill from CTMH set out all our supplies and showed us examples, I was excited to give this a try :)  I love the way it turned out, for my first try!




I started with a 6x6 Canvas, added Heartstrings Paper to the background, along with some Paper Fundamentals in Juniper.  I used more of the Heartstrings paper to create my girl, both her face and her dress.  I cut the sun from Brushed papers.  I then stamped some of the Assorted Edges in Black and Distressed Backgrounds in Lagoon.  I cut out a heart in Cotton Candy Paper Fundamentals, and a baseball out of Chalk It Up papers.  I added red and black shimmer trim, Silver Sequins, Bitty Bling and a Crown charm to embellish.  Lastly, I hand doodled with a black journaling pen.  


My SHE-art says "She dreams big"


Now hop on over to Nikka's blog and see what she has created!

Studio J- Celebrating CTMH

What better way to scrapbook the photos from  my CTMH team's Celebration with corporate CFO that with Studio J!


Back in April, we found out that my team had earned our very own PaRtY with a visit from a corporate executive in September.  We were soooooo excited!  Though many could not make the trip to Fresno to be with us, those of us there had a blast!  

Take a look at my Studio J layout of the memories!  



I love that I can coordinate the colors in Studio J with the colors from the All Star Party.  

Be sure to get your Studio J layouts completed by November 30th for the Lucky 5 Promotion and $5 layouts :)

Studio J- Holiday Photo Cards

Yes, you heard that right... you can create your own amazing Photo Cards in CTMH's Digital Online Program- STUDIO J!!!!!

Last year, fellow Director, Brae, shared hers with me.  She has a tutorial on her blog of how she created these.  I instantly fell in love!  The Sparkle & Shine collection is beautiful and looks perfect as photo cards!  Don't you think??

(These are my cards from last year)

Think about this.... if you are going to buy custom made photo cards--- I'm talking GOOD QUALITY PRINTED PHOTO CARDS--- what would you pay???  $1.50-$2.00 per card??? 

Here I have 8 photo cards that are 4x8.  They will fit into a standard letter envelope, with regular postage. THIS MONTH Price:  $5 ((After tax & shipping, cost is LESS THAN $1 per card))

Ready to create your own???  Head on over to Studio J and get started today!  
Want some help???  I'm happy to create for you :)  email me at roxybonds@gmail.com to place your order! 


There are so many different things you can do with these cards!  Brae used black and white photos.  She is also printing two 4x4 photos in the top right corner of the layouts.  Awesome way to maximize that space :)  



Here, fellow Director Michele created 5x7 cards using the Jingle collection.  Again- 8 cards for $5!
