That is absolutely so cute! Thanks so much for the inspiration!

Karen Corbett

So sweet! I love the way you layered so many different materials to create such an adorable ornament. Thanks for sharing!

Kelly Schirmer

So awesome! I love the peeling cardboard tip, hee! I always wonder how you get your sweet little rustic embellishments, glad to hear it's that easy! Your ornament is 100% charming and would make a great gift!

Carol Ann

I'm off to look for white 4" embroidery hoops. This ornament is adorable and looks so fun to make.


Oh wow, not only do we get beautiful eye candy, but the directions on how to put it all together to make our own "Lilybean Ornament". Thank you so much for including the steps in achieving this little beauty!


Forgot to say, I am amazed at how you make such terrific use of your dies and stamps. You KNOW what you have and go time and time again to them as you create. That is such an inspiration to me. Lesson learned: Know what you have and put it to use-often! Thanks!

Cindy Otto

This is simply precious! I love that little house. It has been one of my favorite go-to dies. I have me wheels spinning for a craft activity with embroidery hoops for the grandchildren. It won't be a fancy as yours, but they will have a ball! Thank you for your darling ideas. Happy Holidays to you and your sweet family!
