Hello my name is Renata and I'm addicted to snowmen. Acceptance is the first step right? Who am I kidding, I love my snowmen and always well. These little guys are completely adorable. This is my go to Christmas set. So glad I decided to buy it before Stampin Up discontinued it.
Instead of regular cardstock, I used a thick Watercolour paper. I found it gave the card a bit more something to it. Then I lightly sprayed the surface of it with Smooch pearl spray. I love the smooch but I think I prefer the Tattered Angels pearl mist instead. Then I coloured them in and sponged the colour around them.
In the end, I really liked how it turned out.
My second card was a clean and simple design. The little ornaments are so versatile and pretty much go with anything.
For both cards I used Stickles and much like Snowmen, I'm addicted to Stickles. I admit I love pretty sparkly things!
So I guess the last time I posted was at the beginning of the year. It hasn't been a very good year. Hopefully good things are on it's way now. I'll be posting a bit more now, I'm on bedrest for the next three weeks and I plan on catching up.
So I started my Christmas cards last week. I was so excited to recieve my Stampin Up order and I broke out my goodies right away.
I love the little snowmen from this set! So versatile and just darn cute. I'm loving the blues for this season. I think I might try to do some jewel tones for my next batch.
Well with Christmas come and gone, I thought I would share some cards I did this Christmas. I didn't have time to mass produce as the clinic took up alot of my free time. But I did manage to make some goodies for myself this year.
So remember way way way back in October? That invitation line I was working on. Well obvioulsy I finished them and the wedding came and went. It was such a lovely wedding. Such an amazing couple and amazing day.
So here is there entire wedding line I created just for them!
To start the mood off right- The Save the Dates.
The Main Course- The Invitations
And to finish off- Tags and Menu
Gorgeous colour combinations! Kudos to the bride and groom for a wonderful wedding!!
It's been such a ridiculously long time since I've updated. Has it really been since last August. Wow!!
Well so many things have been in the works since then. I stopped blogging for a while so we could get focused at the Fertility Clinic. And now we are taking a break with it for a while, at least until the spring when we do IVF. But that is a whole other chapter. So in the meantime, lets just all keep our fingers crossed and keep wishing on those stars. Where's that little cricket when you need him.
So I promise this year.. and yes I do promise I will try to blog at least 1-2 times a week. I know not everyone might be reading this but it really does help. And when life is full of complications, a little help goes a long long way.
