Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow...

Instead of rain I think I would rather have snow...  Even thought I live in the Pacific Northwest it doesn't snow all that much where we are located, but there are times that we have gotten dumped on also so I guess it's hit or miss with the snow for us... The kids already have there sleds ready for that day if it ever arrives. lol

So with snow on my mind I had to create a "Let it Snow" card.  The boys just loved it...  I also used the Sketchy Wednesday sketch for KinderStampO for this card.

Products used:
Kraft Cardstock
Core'dinations Glittered Cardstock
KinderStampO Vintage and Traditional Holiday Stamp Set
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
Vintage Lace
McGill Medium Highland Snowflake Punch
McGill Alpine Snowflake Punch
Queen and Company Silver Pearls
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Walnut Stain

Here is the KinderStampO Sketchy Wednesday 11-30-11 Sketch


I love creating sketches so I am so thankful that Jessica from KinderStampO enjoys them enough to use them each week.  If you haven't checked out KinderStampO Stamps yet you need to... They are amazing sentiment stamp sets filled with great sentiments in different fonts.

A Pocket full of Memories blog hop...


Thanks for visiting and hopping along the pocket full of memories blog hop... Be sure to start at the beginning and leave a comment on each blog for a chance to win an amazing prize by several different sponsors.

I have been working on a mini album for a couple weeks.  It has been a long time since I created one and I have to say I really missed it.. I use to teach a mini album very close to this using envelopes and cards several years ago and a friend of mine directed me to Kathy Orta's YouTube channel saying her album reminded her of mine years ago... Pretty close but I love her Library pocket page better.  I also loved how she bound the album as years ago all we really had was rings, ribbon and eyelets... but who would of thought of duck tape...  I chose to do mine with tyvek and ink it as I wanted an older look to my binding.  I love the whole idea of tyvek and glad that Kathy Orta pointed me in it's direction...  If you like this album Kathy Orta has really broke the steps down and shared this mini album in a series of 4 videos. Awesome videos...

Here is my album titled Dream... I still need to fill it with photos, journaling and more tags...
