Deck the Halls! Stampin’ Creative November Blog Hop

Deck the Halls with a colourful Christmas Luminary.

Welcome to November’s Stampin’ Creative Global Blog Hop. 

Our Design Team is made up of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from throughout the world and we love blogging together each month to share new Creative projects with you all. You’re currently with Jackie Noble – aka CreativeJax – in Porirua, New Zealand.

This month’s theme is Deck the Halls

And this week that is just what I’ve been doing here at Home!

Each year I create some new Christmas Decorations from current Stampin’ Up! products, that I then keep and add to my collection to bring out next year.

I’ve already made several new Home Decor items and today I’m sharing a cute wee Christmas Luminary

Deck the Halls Project

Mini Curvy Keepsakes Christmas Luminary

I must admit it looks a little underwhelming during the day without its battery-operated tealight candle going.

But when I turn that on – I just love how it shines!

Project Details

(Note: see the Product List below for images & links to more information about the items)

Paper/card: Mercury Glass Designer Acetate

Stamp sets: None!

Ink: None!

Tools: Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies

Non-Stampin’ Up! product: Battery-operated tea light candle – this one was multi-coloured but the luminary looks fabulous with any Tea-light candle. It MUST be a BATTERY one though – DON’T put a real candle inside!

This Luminary is made from just one 6×6″ square of the Mercury Glass Designer Acetate. The Mini Curvy Keepsake dies cuts one piece to create this gorgeous wee “gift box”.  You can see how it works in the Stampin’ Up! video below.

More Project Images – in fact videos!

Here’s a little video of the luminary as the colours of the tea light inside change. ( There is no sound! )



Now it’s time to hop on over to the UK to see what Elmear has created!

And then keep on hopping to see what projects the other members of the Design Team have shared today!

Until next time

Jackie aka CreativeJax
