Let it SNOW!

Okay I don't want the real stuff, but this kind is fine. The pictures didn't turn out that well because I was trying to take them through the front door window, where this display hangs for the winter season.

I made these using some beautiful papers from TPC Studios and a combination of Spellbinders Nestabilities and my Slice Machine!  The pictures don't really do it justice, but hanging in the main doorway these are quite attractive.


Deck the Halls

I can't believe with everything going on, I managed to finish a layout for Canadian Scrapbookers December Sketchy Challenge.  Just under the wire mind you, but it's done.

A very glittery layout showing off a few of my crystal and glass ornaments.


Ho Ho Ho

It's December 1st, decorating day - so the Christmas decoration boxes emerged and the transformation began. I had an idea for some Christmas decor items this year that I wanted to try my hand at, and here is the result:

Here is a closer look at how the panels stand up and spell out "Ho Ho Ho". I really love how this turned out, and it looks great on my hall accent table.

And finally, a super close up. I really put my Slice Machine to work on this project. The large square panels that are the back most piece is a label cut from the Slice. First I cut a piece of Kraft Cardstock and then mounted a piece of patterned paper, cut in the exact same shape on top. It made the back more stable.

I then cut another size of the same label shape and glittered it's edge.  Then, cutting a single strip of patterned paper, scored at every 1/4 inch, I made the florettes. And again, I returned to my Slice Machine for the letters, which I then ran through an embossing folder and sanded slightly for a bit of a vintage Christmas look.

Click on any of these images for a close up view!  This project was a ton of fun, and you could modify it so much, by using different Christmas terms (like Noel, Snow, Joy, etc.) and of course with different patterned papers! 

Love this idea - and there are definitely more variations of this on the way as the decorating continues.
