Frosty Fun Kit Releases

I have a fun, wintry kit to share with you today!

Time spent playing outside in the snow on a chilly winter’s day can be so much fun, especially if you bundle up in  your warmest clothes.  My girls love making snow angels, snowmen, sledding, or just enjoying the crisp winter air as they play outside.  If you have photos to scrap of your special winter’s day memories, this kit will help you capture the fun with beautiful pastel colors and tons of great winter themed papers and elements.

This kit includes 13 patterned papers, 6 solids, and 42 elements and it is 40% off through Dec 15th!

Merry and Bright Kit releases + Freebie

I have a beautiful new kit in the store at Scraps N Pieces today that I am so excited to share with you, and best of all it’s 40% off the introductory week!  I had so much fun making this kit and I absolutely love the layouts my CT made with this kit.  I began it as a Christmas kit but it morphed into more of a general winter kit, although there are a few Christmasy papers and elements in there still that you can use to scrap any photos from the holiday that you still have!

This kit is full of fun and bright elements and papers that will give your layout a really fun and festive appearance and bring some beautiful colors to this time of year.  This kit includes 18 papers, 6 glitter sheets, 6 solids, and 69 elements.  Also be sure to grab the alpha freebie at the bottom of this post 🙂

Winter Chirp SNP blog train freebie

I loved the colors for this month’s blog train at Scraps N Pieces, they were just perfect for chilly winter days, although this past weekend here in Ohio was nearly 60!  That’s really uncommon for this part of the world where we are right in the snow belt.  But it was a nice to have some springy weather for a few days. 🙂

Anyhow, here’s my portion of the blog train, there are some great kits this month so be sure to stop by the rest of the blogs too 🙂

Miss Meghan’s Craft Corner ~ Beaded Snowflake Craft

For the November/December edition of our library magazine Miss Lucy and I planned fun snowflake crafts and snacks.  For the snowflake snack, Miss Lucy shared a super simple and yummy idea.  Take a large marshmallow for the center of the snowflake.  Place 6 small pretzel sticks radiating out from the center and place a mini marshmallow on the ends of each of the pretzels.  Cute snowflake snack!  You can see a sample on this blog here.

Beaded Snowflake craft

Materials needed:
2 glittery silver pipe cleaners
Assorted beads

1. Cut each pipe cleaner in half. You will only need three halves.
2. Twist the three pipe cleaners together in the centers so that they form a 6 pointed shape.

3. Add beautiful beads to the pipe cleaners. You can layer them all edge to edge or keep some space so the pipe cleaner shows through.

4. Fold over the ends of the pipe cleaner so the beads don’t slide off.
5. Make a loop at the end of one of the pipe cleaners and tie your ribbon to it.
6. Hang your beautiful snowflake somewhere special!
