Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop - Best of....




Welcome to the Best of.... Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop!

As always, the blog hop goes in circular motion, so you'll be going around in a circle from wherever you start you'll end up.   If you are following from the beginning then you should be arriving from Gail's blog and going to Stefanie's blog from here.  

This time we are doing something a little different. First we are choosing the best of another Watercooler member's blog hop projects and CASE-ing it. Then we are doing best of current product and best of retired product.

Today I have for you the best of Jeanne's watercooler blog hop projects. Click HERE to see the original version. Here's my version:



As you can see, I changed the color, the words and the background but otherwise I did the same idea. I also added dazzling details to the word "Joy".  Such a fun and simple card to make that will WOW people.

Secondly, I did a project for Best of current products.  I chose to feature the Bundles as my current project. All the bundles in the catalogue are fabulous!  And not to mention you get a 15% discount for bundling up.  For my project I used the bundle with the Bright and Beautiful stamp set and the Stars framelits :








I made a simple star shaped ornament by stamping several stars in the silver metallic ink and embossing them with silver embossing powder. And of course cutting them out so simply with the star framelits. I folded each star and glued them all together.  I used one of my favorite retired product, the Crop-a-dile to punch a hole and then I strung the silver ribbon through to complete the ornament.

Hope you've enjoyed this hop!! Please leave a comment to let me know you were here...

Ter- your two projects are great!

Marie Green said...

Oh my, what fun projects. Great pick for the CASE! Wow is right!

Love the folding on the tree! I'm always afraid to try those folds - they look so tricky. I'm awed by those who can master them.
Your star ornament is a great idea. Would be easy to make a lot of them in all different sizes.

I love your folded tree, Ter - I'm going to have to learn that one! The Star bundle is one of my favourites, too - and I'm with you on the Crop-o-dile; I still use mine regularly!
Thanks for sharing :)

Thank you for being part of this wonderful blog hop. I think it's our best so far, don't you?

What a great project of Jeannie's you've chosen as your inspiration! I loved her wonderful tree and yours does it justice and stands on its own with your choice of colours and sentiment. You've chosen the Stars for your current "best of" just like I did! The bundle really is a great buy. The silver embossing and the way you've joined the stars makes this a great ornament. Thanks for sharing.

So I tried that folded tree idea and flopped badly--you got it exactly right! Love it! And great idea to create star ornaments--how pretty to have some in various sizes on the tree! Better get busy...

This may be a repeat comment, sorry.

I have tried the folded tree and flopped badly--you nailed it! And how pretty it would be to have a Christmas tree full of star ornaments in various sizes; I'm going to have to get busy!

I love your cased teabag-folding tree!! You did a great job! I fell in love with it several years ago, and there are tons of different folds you can try out if you'd like to. Your ornament is so pretty too!! I didn't get to make any ornaments this year (sad face) but I'll just have to make up for it next year, right? Have a Merry Christmas!!!

Christine said...

Love both of your projects. That little tree is so cute. Like Gail I am always a little intimidated by the folding, but guess I need to try this.
Love the stars.

Marsha J Reed said...

Lovely projects, Terri. Love that tree!
