Mixing papers & a holiday ornament

Do you have any crafty friends who are
great at mixing/matching different paper lines?
Check out Adora's project below (Copper Kettle/Very Merry).
Then see Rhonda's adorable tree ornament.  

ADORA - Snowy Night layout
Hello! Hope you all had a great Christmas! Few more days and 2011 will be behind us, yes, all behind us but not forgotten.  Some of the good memories and the not so good memories will linger and hopefully we’ll use it to better ourselves in the coming year.  We are moving on to 2012, wishing you all the blessings and a happy new year to come.

Closing off this year with a layout of my grandson!  The photo was taken 2 years ago. Waited for the snow and when it finally came, it was a little late at night. It was as fun as the day snow.

Supplies used:
Clear Scraps Acrylic
I thought the Copper Kettle Paper is a perfect background for this layout. The glow print on the paper, transported a regular snowy night into a magical snowy night.

RHONDA - tree ornament
Thursday greetings to you!  I’m excited to bring to you a fun little project today that I created with my December Quick Quotes Club Q kit.

I thought it would be fun to mix up my projects a bit and create an ornament for the tree!  Every year I create a few ornaments that are special to me for our tree.  This is my Quick Quotes ornament for 2011 featuring my two sweet little guys.  : ) 

To create this ornament I used the Tim Holtz Accordion Flower die by Sizzix.  I created two and sandwiched them together.  The cute little gingerbread men represent my kids.  I colored them with my Copics. 

I added a layer on either side of a punched snowflake.  Using my Epiphany Crafts Round 25 Button and Charms were a perfect accent and provided a wonderful way to hang the ornament!

I punched holes through the center of the snowflakes so my hanger ribbon could be threaded.

Here is the flip side.  I just love that sweet gingerbread man! A little Stickles on top of my snowflake and voila~!

Adora the layout of your grandson is gorgeous. The dark paper is perfect since the snow was at night. Also really makes the embellishments pop.
Rhonda very cute ornament. I love making those rosettes and your idea is very cute. Love that you used the Epoxy button rounds. Good reminder to get those out and use them. Thanks ladies.
