Today I am using Spellbinders S4-288 Classic Diamonds die template and i altered this candle for a nice Fall centerpiece

Photobucket

Photobucket

i also used Spellbinders S4-125 Classic Scalloped Circles Small die template &

Xyron adhesive.

Next i used the lovely Xyron Creatopia Fabric adhesive & the Classic Diamonds i cut felt shapes & then ran them through the fabric adhesive sandwiched a bit of batting between them & the adhesive worked perfectly to hold the diamonds together while i stiched these ornaments..sorry no tree up yet to display them on ;0). The centers were made with the S4-192 Blossom dies. Add a little bling to the center & a christmas tree hook & these are ready to go.

I then decided to try my hand at using the negatives & play with some mist, so i made a few Christmas cards
