If you’re here and don’t know about the HOP today, PLEASE start at the CAARDVARKS BLOG. All the details are posted there!

Today you’re going to see LOADS of great ideas for ornaments, table center pieces and holiday decor.

Here’s an ornament I made (the stamps are from JUST RITE) using the SCALLOP CHIPBOARD FRAME. I covered the frame with patterned paper, sanded the edges, machine stitched it (slowly and carefully!), attached the paper pieced image to the back and attached the ribbon hanger.

Time to go discover what MEL has in store for you today!!

  12. WOw that’s gorgeous – what an awesome ornament!

  13. Beautiful stitching! I love the way it gives extra depth to the ornament!

  14. wow, this turned out beautiful! I’m guessing you are not using the Janome sewing machine for this 🙂

    How do you find is the easiest way for you to apply the paper to your chipboard? Do you trace the pattern, cut, adhere and then sand? I have so much chipboard to use and am so intimidated using it because it looks so hard to make sure I get the paper lined up well.

    Thanks for any tips!

  15. This is really lovely. That scalloped ornament is the perfect frame for it. TFS!

  16. the ornament turned out just great! love it.

    (& HOW didja know i was gonna ASK about the stitching?! i’d loooooooove to try that, i’m even getting the hang of curves (hand-cranking was indeed the breakthrough, ta!) but sheesh…i dunno how kenneth kenmore would react to CHIPBOARD… 🙂 i may just have to admire yours from afar!!!)
