A fun alternate for these would be for each piece to … [Read more...] about Nativity and New Year Luminaries – Easy way to add celebration DIY handmade ambiance to your holidays!
These have been one of those projects I tucked inside my head the second I saw the incredibly wonderful and versatile House dies last summer.

In case you never make … [Read more...] about Christmas and Seasonal Handmade Luminaries – Countdown to Christmas Projects

I also used a glue gun - at camp we used Green Glue - for the video I needed it to dry quickly so you could see it. These would be fun to make using whatever dies, papers, … [Read more...] about Simple Christmas Decor' – using Big Shot and Stampin' Up! Embellishments
