I am stretching my fall design because it’s still fall here where I live. No snow has stuck on the ground yet, just wet leaves. I worked a good portion of those into the garden on Tuesday. My vegetables will grow high and pest free next year!

Assembly line stamping…I use a desk calendar blotter and past month calendar pages for a larger stamping area when assembly line stamping.

I snail mailed a stack of these cards for the Sugar Cookie Social invitations because I really liked the color combination. It was fun to take the time to custom create my own designer series paper too. Even if you did not get an invitation, you are still welcome to attend. Sugar Cookie Social event details are in this post. Hope you can make it!

Ink and Share Scrapbook Blog Hop Snowman Season

Welcome to the Ink and Share Scrapbook Blog Hop. We are Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators showcasing our fabulous products on scrapbook pages. Christmas is our theme this month. Sue asked us to make our layouts sparkle! Anything in the current annual or holiday catalogs can be used to create our layouts. If you are on the hop trail, you may have arrived from Cindy’s blog. She had a great layout!

The Feels Like Frost designer series paper is silvery on one side. It is a great choice for snow themed photo mats. I like to use lots of patterned papers on my scrapbook layouts for quick assembly and to enjoy the papers long after the stash is used on cards.

Use the Snowman Builder punch to punch out the Let It Snow sentiment. A few days after I took the photo, I added Highland Heather snowflakes at the top of the layout and around the edges of the photo mats.

Here are the patterns in the Feels Like Frost 6×6 inch paper pack. Pretty silver on one side and real snow scenes on the other.

Snowpeeps throwing snow designed by me, Shirley Merker. The snowflakes were die cut using the Seasonal Layers dies. The Epoxy Droplets looks like snow without getting the card wet;)

So, these photos were taken from Mom’s set of swaps. Not sure what was suppose to be where the remnants of the 2 dimensionals are. It’s a pretty card, non the less. I think either Norma Artman or Christine Davis designed this one.10 19 40-001
