  1. I think the ornament is beautiful. I make ornaments for people every year and give them as gifts!! I would love to see the snowflake ornament video. Thank you so
    much….Have a great day….

  2. Thank you for the video. You made it so clear and made it look easy. Very encouraging for all.

  3. Oh, thank you! It is beautiful! I so appreciate your “bowing to pressure” and taking the time to make the vid!!

  4. I was in love with this ornament since the Holiday catalog first arrived and could not find instructions anywhere as to how to make it. Catherine, thanks so much for making it possible and for making it come alive! Can’t wait to see the StampNation post too!

  5. Wow Catherine – what excellent directions – thanks so much for taking the time needed to show how to make this ornament – think I’ll start now. Thanks again – I love it.

  6. Catherine,

    Lovely, can’t wait until I can try this! Yes, a lot of work, but as you say “worth it”. I am retiring soon form my 45 years of working, so I look forward to having time to create!
    Thanks for sharing ~

  10. LOVE IT! Wonderful job Catherine. I took notes & actually think I can make one – Wahoo! I have a Christmas Club member who wants us to make one at an upcoming workshop. Hope I can. Likely one of the more simple ones. Your demo was fantastic!

  11. Thanks so much for the great video, I am in the process of making one of these ornaments, but learned several things from your video!

  14. Catherine , I had looked at that cover and told myself I had to make it! a million thanks for doing all the thinking for me. I am from Australia I I don’t think I can use you as my demonstrator – but you are certainly my teacher.

  15. Joy Haywood says:

  17. Catherine, this ornament is so gorgeously beautiful. I really want to get this set of stamps and dies now, I can’t wait.Love it!

  18. Thank you so much Catherine for this. I hold a cardmaking class each Wednesday and since the “Girls” have seen the mini they have wanted me to do it. I have been sat figuring out how it was done and now you have done it for me. Once again thanks a lot. The only problem now is that we have to wait till 1st September here in the UK to get the stamps. Am I wishing my life away? LOL

  19. This ornament is so pretty. Thanks so much for the video tutorial and the extra little video for SN members! You make it look so easy. As much as I loved this ornament on the cover of the catalog, I had no intention of trying one because of the time involved. You have changed my mind. :) LOVE!

    Great instructional for a gorgeous ornament

  30. You are an AMAZING teacher! Your instructions were so clear and simple. I think your approachable style really works. Thank you for posting this video. It is great!

    I noticed in the catalog picture that it seems like the ornament is double sided. Would that just be 2 of these ornaments glued together? Any tips on doing that? Can we eliminate any of the pieces to make the backside 3-dimensional as well?

  31. Marge Disbrow says:

    Love it Catherine, have to make time to get some of these done. Thanks

  32. Susan Silne says:
