Paper Lace Ornaments

Hello everyone!
I have some pretty paper lace ornaments to share tonight. We made these in a class I taught at the store tonight. If you're interested in another class, please email or call the store - 507-859-2929.
The basis of each ornament is a lace strip cut with Spellbinders Lace Border die.
We used the center die from the Contemporary Hearts Pendants die set for the center on the ornament above. A little Stickles glitter glue really sets it off! ( My photo doesn't show all the Stardust glitter glue added to the stars in the lace border.)
The 2nd ornament has a stamped image from JustRite's "A Merry Little Christmas" set.
Once the ornament is assembled, there are endless possibilities for the center.
Spellbinders Lace Border, Contemporary Hearts, Circles and Scallop Circles
White 12x12 cardstock
Glue, my favorite "The Ultimate"

Just in....Serendipity Christmas Stamps

It's not only the weather that has us thinking of Winter, here at Fond Memories the girls are busy creating for Christmas. Doreen made this darling little bird on a branch card from the Serendipity Titmouse set. The paper is Graphic 45, she used Copic Markers to color and Spellbinders Circles and Lables Eight. We have several new Serendipity sets in as well as fun stamps from Penny Black. It's perfect weather for stamping....a good time to get a jump start on all those Holiday projects!
