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 ~ January Snowflakes

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Welcome to 2022 – wishing you all a very Peaceful and Healthy New Year ~ I look forward to spending some time with you over the coming months, sharing the papercrafting projects I have been working on.

This year Stampin’ UP! introduced the Days to Remember Stamp Set which makes the whole process of stamping them ‘oh so very easy’ . Today I share a video on how I use this stamp set to create a calendar card and give you a sneak peak of my flip over calendar for 2022.
