Freestyle Fridays - Santa's Coming

I was looking at some of my supplies yesterday and came across some galvanized pots that I had purchased some time back.  With no particular design in mind I spray painted one in red.  Once that was dry I took out a container full of glitter paper in all sorts of colors.  Cut a strip in black and circled the pot with it.  Made a belt buckle with some gold using a square Nestabilities.  Die cut some black circles.  Took out the Tasteful Trim die and ran it through the Big Shot with some white glitter.   Can you picture where this is going?

In my glitter stash I also had a some red leafing so I stuck that into some floral foam.  Let's call this Santa's Tree.  Seriously, this was done in no time at all.  Best of all, the glitter paper has a sticky back so it came together very easily.  The only time consuming part was the spray paint drying time.

This is going to be my last Freestyle Fridays post for this year.  Regina will bring you her mission next week and we will resume January 6, 2012.

********REGINA'S MISSION********

Ho Ho Ho Regina!  Your mission this week will be to take something in your supplies, no special purchase necessary, and turn it into Santa's Coat.  So yeah, you gotta use Red. And some black. And some white.  The only other criteria is that you must play Christmas music while creating this coat.  You know you love it!

See Ya Next Week!

Freestyle Fridays

It's the beginning of the first weekend of the busiest month of the year. How are you holding up?  Got your list made and are you checking it twice?
Hopefully Regina’s Mission from last week got you inspired like it did her.  Her mission was to:  come up with a little gift that would be great to give to teachers, neighbors or better yet, your best customers. You can incorporate it with candy, Kleenex, hair conditioner sample, bath oils, etc etc. The only exception to the rule, its NOT a card.
And here is a sneak of the result: 

Regina has all the details here and an inspirational tidbit on a very creative friend. This was shared at her last class. Once you read her post it`s going to make you want to attend her next one. So be sure to leave her a comment and find out how you can attend!

See Ya Next Week!
