Snow Day

I have one more project to share that I created using the December Blue Hills Meadow kit. The Kaisercraft Photo Display was our product spotlight and I used that plus the kit to make a fun home decor piece.

I used the same stand that I altered for CTS a few months ago (you can see that project HERE). I painted the display white and picked the aqua/red/white papers from the kit. I really love that color combo! I decided to use some snow photos from our snow trip a few years ago to make a Snow Day themed display.

All the big chipboard pieces are from the kit. What a fun embellishment! I also used some baker's twine to string along the top and bottom of the display. I just added dots of glue along the way and the twine adhered just fine.

And my favorite snowflake cut from the Accents Essentials Cricut cartridge. I strung them on some baker's twine for a fun snowflake banner.

We rarely see snow. It doesn't snow in Southern California and's SO cold. Ha ha! These photos are from a trip 3 years ago and we haven't seen snow since. I think another snow trip could be in the works for this winter. How do you think i'd do in the snow on crutches?

Citrus Tree Studio is having a New Year's Crop this Saturday!! Please come check out all the challenges and games. They will be posted Saturday morning and you will have all weekend to complete them. It's going to be fun!

Hope you are having a fabulous week so far. Thanks for stopping by!!
