Christmas and Winter Theme

So this week Stamping Royalty brings us a Christmas and Winter theme.  I decided to make my own designer series paper by cutting strips of paper.    Stay tuned tomorrow for the color challenge that inspired do it yourself patterned paper.   Since I had made the paper for one challenge I ended up using it for two.    I saw this great snowman cut out on Pinterest and knew I had to make my own.   So easy to do, just take circle tape them down and use them as a pattern for the snowman outline.   I think I first used one of the containers from SU, then I used 1 3/4" Circle and 1 3/8" Circle.   For the banner, I die cut an Itty Bitty Banner and then used it as pattern to make a larger one for myself since the sentiment from the Best Wishes & More set just barely fit in the original die cut.

The challenge will be open until 3:00pm (PST) Monday, November 19th. Hope you can join us!
