Peaceful Woodlands


It's That Time of Year

We awoke to snow on the ground on Saturday morning in Green Bay, and I must say, I'm not really ready for it. On Friday it was in the 60's, on Saturday - only in the 30's!

To create this woodlands scene, apply Versamark ink to the Stampin' Up! Woodland embossing folder before running it through the Big Shot. Then apply gold embossing powder and heat it with the heat tool until the powder melts. Decorate as desired with glimmer paper, sequins or other embellishments.

Use the Christmas Greetings thinlits dies and fine tip glue pen to add a sentiment.

Thankful

Thankful for You

With the Thanksgiving holiday this week, there's no better time than now to think about the people in your life that you're grateful for, and let them know what they mean to you. This easy card we created in class this month can be sent for Thanksgiving, or really any time of year!
