Layers of Color's Ornament Blog Hop and Tutorial

Welcome to the Layers of Color's Ornament Blog Hop. The LOC team, along with some dear friends, has put together this hop to get your creative juices going to make hand crafted holiday ornaments.
I love making hand made ornaments and I almost always put family photos on them. Here is one side view. I used one of the sentiments from the Glad Tidings clear art stamp set. I also used the Spellbinders Labels 16, Picot Edge Circles and Fancy Tags 2 dies on it. The papers are Pink Paislee.
The tutorial for this ornament is below.
As with any hop, there are freebies and giveaways:
FREE Ornament Templates,
FREE Vintage Roses Ornament Tutorial, and
6 drawings for a $20 Layers of Color Gift Certificate, hidden somewhere among these designers' blogs, so make sure you leave a comment as you hop along!


Make sure you stop by the Layers of Color blog for more info. And while there, make sure you check out LOC's Christmas Collection and the Ornament Gallery.
