Winter themed Sampler Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

This time last year we were on the threshold of a vicious winter storm in which North Texas was below freezing for 139 hours, today it is a little on the chilly side but the sun is shining and we have brilliant blue skies!

Today I am sharing the 3rd in a series of 4 seasonal samplers that I have created for my lovely ladies who come to my classes – although it has a winter theme, I resisted the temptation to add any Christmas-specific elements. As always with samplers there is quite a few materials and tools used but the result is so worth it 🙂

Flip over calendar ~ December Christmas Decoration

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Well here we are – December 1st and the final page of the flip over calendar for 2021. If you are a regular follower of my blog you will know that in the early part of last December I had a class to create a flip over calendar, everyone loved it and made me promise we will do another for 2022 – well that class is scheduled for this coming Saturday and Tuesday – all the design is done and supplies are cut!.

I have loved sharing each page at the start of each month and am seriously thinking of doing the same for the 2022 calendar. So today I share, December with Christmas lights and a tree ornament – very festive!

Fall Sampler Home Decor Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

This is the second in the series of seasonal samplers I was asked to design for a class. Home decor is a particular favorite of mine, I just love to pull together the different elements, experimenting with different textures and colors until I trip over the ‘right’ combination.

I resisted the temptation to use the ‘traditional’ autumn/fall colors of cajun craze and pumpkin pie, although I did not use any of the papers, the color combination was inspired by the Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper so you will see Blackberry Bliss, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and the different shade of gold in the Brushed Metallic Card.

Summer Sampler Home Decor Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Home decor is a particular favorite of mine to create. Once I have my theme, I usually start with some Designer Series Paper, then pull out ribbon, embellishments and card that will go with the papers, then I go to work.

I had a request from my ladies for seasonal 8 x 8 samplers they could display, so we started with summer and will continue with the Fall themed one in August. The starting point for me is the beautiful Hydrangea Hill DSP – which is still available for a few more days, so please get your order in now to avoid disappointment 🙂
