Christmas Crafting Part 2

Hey Scrap Shotz Fans!

I'm back with part 2 of my Christmas Crafting projects which feature a home decor project and ATCs using Kaisercraft's "Christmas Edition" paper collection.

For my home decor project, I decided to transform an already vintage looking picture frame into a fabulous altered home decor piece. 

To add some extra interest to the vintage picture frame, I used a Black Soot Distress Crayon  and highlights of White Gold Art Alchemy Metallique Wax along the edges of the frame.

In the top half portion of the frame, I applied some Silver Gem Nuvo Paste through the Fancy Stars Template from Kaisercraft. Lift the stencil off and your left with pretty silver stars. Once the stars have dried, adhere a snowflake and a sentiment in the top left hand corner. 

In the bottom right hand corner, use foam squares and adhesive to adhere the deer beside the tree fussy cut image. After the deer and tree have been adhered, use a palette knife and add highlights of Silver Gem paste to the tree. To finish off the bottom portion of the frame, add a couple more snowflakes. 

For my last project, I created a set of two ATCs. 

For my first ATC, to add some extra interest on the piece of patterned paper, I laid the Fancy Stars stencil over the entire surface of the patterned paper piece and placed the Silver Gem Paste through the stencil. Once the stencil is lifted off, allow the fancy stars to dry. After the fancy stars have dried, use foam squares and adhesive to adhere fussy cut images and images from the Collectables package. The Merry Christmas Sentiment came from one of the tear off strips from the bottom of the patterned paper. Make sure to ink all the edges of the fussy cut images to make them pop against the stenciled background.

With the Fancy Star stencil still out, place the stencil on the right hand side of the patterned paper and apply Silver Gem Glitter Paste through parts of it. Pull off stencil. After the Fancy Stars have dried, layer on the corners from the Collectables pack. Die cut three trees using the Tall Trees Die from Penny Black. Adhere trees as desired. The Christmas Wishes sentiment came from the sticker sheet in the Christmas Edition patterned paper pack. To finish off the ATC, I added a few sequins around the sentiment.

All of the products that I've used today on my projects are available in the Scrap Shotz's store. 

Thanks for joining me today! Make sure to tune in tomorrow as another design team member will be sharing their projects.
