Do You Want to Build a Snowman?

It's cold enough outside to build a snowman, but there's only one problem...there's no snow! None yet this year and while it's still too early to tell, I'm thinking this year may be void of snow. Here it the Raleigh, North Carolina area some years are like that. It reminds me when we first moved here from California we bought a sled right away anticipating our first snowfall that didn't happen for a couple years!

Anyway, it is cold enough to bundle up and share a Scraptastic Club January 2015 Sweater Weather kit card with you! 

I noticed that with some of my previous Sweater Weather cards I was gravitating towards the same papers and accents so I thought I'd mix it up a bit this time and use different ones. Funny how it makes this card seem like it's from an entirely different kit! That's one of the things I love about the Scraptastic Club kits...so many patterned papers and accents to choose from and enough in each kit to make more projects than I have time for!!! My niece loves that because I have enough supplies to share with her too!

Anna Griffin on HSN

This weekend I hadn't planned on being away from my blog for three days, but that's how things turned out. I spent time with my boys and just had too much fun to step foot in the office! Today I'm back, refreshed and ready to share and create more projects for you like this card from Anna Griffin's new Juliet collection debuting last week on HSN. 

Oh How I love the patterned papers, dimensional embellishments and gold foil accents from this line! 

Along with the new Juliet collection, Anna shared an amazing new embossing tool called Mix & Match Embossing Folders and Dies that allow you to create beautifully embossed backgrounds while adding matching sentiments at the same time.

Here's another card I created with the Juliet collection and Anna's new Paisley Patterns Embossing Folders & Dies. These are embossing patterns are so detailed and gorgeous, don't you think? 

Anna is currently working on her next set of collections and HSN show. And I'm look forward to showing you just how easy it is to use them and create lots of fun projects!

This morning I was in the mood to create so as soon as I got to my office I gathered my die cutter, a few new Confetti Cuts from Reverse Confetti and my scrap paper bin and got to work making this polka dotted, paper hearts Valentine. You should see the mess I made! Oh, but I had fun!

I combined the Pretty Panels Love, Puppy Love, Heart to Heart and Documented Confetti Cuts for this card for lots of layers, accenting and adding texture with ribbon, jute and wood embellishments.

Even though it's the middle of winter, yesterday we had an amazing warm and sunny day here in North Carolina. It was 65+ degrees and I couldn't resist spending some time outside with the sun on my face! 

Since it's still very much wintertime, I have a Scraptastic Club January 2015 Sweater Weather kit project to share with you today. 

The background of my card was created with two Scraptastic Club patterned papers and a sticker...those beautiful pine trees. The next layer, the shipping tag, one of my kit faves is topped with some Carta Bella Warm & Cozy stickers and accented with a bit of jute and a very cool metal snowflake paperclip from Maya Road. 

We'll be returning to normal winter temps soon and maybe we'll even get a little snowfall? Christopher would enjoy that! :)
