Snow Day Fun by Buffy Cooper

Snow Day Fun! – Buffy Cooper

It’s 10 a.m. on a snow day. The snow is piling up outside and doesn’t look like it’s going to stop, and then you hear those three dreaded words – “Mom, I’m bored.” Keep your children entertained with this Snow Day Fun set. Use the Stampin’ Up! Snow Place bundle to create mix and match elements that will cling to the scenic background board. It’s simple enough for older children to create for younger siblings or neighbors, and smaller children will enjoy mixing the pieces to create cute snow scenes. Best of all, it’s durable enough to stand up to hours of use by tiny fingers. If you don’t have children, you can create this project for a friend who does and make a young child’s day. Instructions for a storage/gift box and a coordinating card are included. This would make a fun class for moms so they’ll be ready for that first snow day!  Head to Craft Project Central and subscribe to the month of December for full step-by-step instructions!

Sleigh Ride Edgelits Christmas Pocket Card

Intricate die cuts can add a very special level of detail to your cards.  Here, the Sleigh Ride Edgelit is highlighted by creating a pocket card with the die cut insert.  I used the ribbon to hold the pocket together so that the card is easy to put in and pull out.  The sentiment is from the Antique Tags stamp set by Stampin' Up!
Wishing those of you celebrating Christmas a love-filled Christmas Eve!

Noel Gift Tags

Add some sparkle to gift tags with a bit of Gold Foil Paper!  I used an old snowflake die that I had to brighten up these tags.  The sentiment was stamped using the Antique Tags stamp set by Stampin' Up!

Christmas Tags With A Vintage Feel


I'm drawn to things that have an aged or vintage feel and that is true with paper tags too!  These two tag designs were created with that vintage feel in mind.  For the top tag I used the Antique Tags stamp set by Stampin' Up!  The second tag was made with the Six Sayings stamp set and whole lot of sponging of the edges :)  The second tag makes me think of warm wooly sweaters and drinking a cup of hot cocoa by a warm fire...and we can't forget some snowflakes falling outside the window :)
