Wow, it’s been quite awhile since I sat down to write a post. Every time I’d start something, I’d get distracted, (or do more shoveling…) and I just didn’t feel like it.
Finally had an afternoon to myself so play I did. Loving these clear frames from Deflecto. Because the back is clear, you can play around with the different layers sandwiching things in the middle, attached to the back or adding dimension right on the front.
What better theme than a snow day! There are so many great paper punches to use and a tried using several different papers, glossy, vellum and even a few covered in translucent glitter.
Sure hope the cold doesn’t last much longer. Who’s ready for Spring??
All the best,
Had enough of winter yet?
It seems with a winter of back to back storms ice and cold, it can begin to wear on anyone. Maybe it’s the Turning Lemons into Lemonade motto or what but when the snow is falling, it looks spectacular. When the light hits the snow a certain way, it actually does look like falling glitter. You would have thought with all the days that I was actually snowed in, I would have gotten so many projects done. Truth be told, it takes a LOT of time to remove all that snow!
I did manage to make this winter scene card for a friend, somewhat different from the grey snowy card I’d done last season. It’s amazing how these stamps let you create nature’s beauty in every season. Here’s a video tutorial on using Stampscapes stamps Their website is also a source of great information.
As 2014 is chugging along, I continue to hold onto focus, keeping my One Word in the forefront of my mind. Pursuing order, although at times I’ve fallen short, has made a tremendous impact on my life.
I guess we just have to keep remembering that in another month we’ll be turning the clocks ahead. Spring can’t be far off. right?
All the best,
