First Snow

Wow...that month went quickly ;) I am such a rubbish blogger! So here is my design for this month's challenge over at The Cupboard Trilogy It is definitely worth entering this month, the prize is Bazzill cardstock!
I have used more of the Stampin Up papers that the lovely Cal sent me, take a moment to pop over to her blog HERE...she has just uploaded a couple of videos showing the new SU, it looks fab! I don't know how well you can see it on the photos but check out the glittery snowflakes. They were cut on the Big Shot and then sprayed with some Shimmer Paint mixed in a spritzer with some rubbing alcohol. They are so sparkly they almost look embossed. All available from Stampin Up :) Yet again my little sewing machine came into use, how fabby is the stitching round the edge of the layout? I love the pattern of the stitch. It's all been a bit stressful here with my eldest son going to various interviews for University. He has had 2 offers so far and has been asked to go to Oxford to interview next week...for four days!! Scary stuff! Why oh why aren't my paragraphs showing when I publish my blog :( Does anyone know?


  1. Can't help with the paragraphs - but that layout is amazing ! I wish I could get my snowflakes to sparkle like that !

  2. That's a rather gorgeous stitched border! Really brings the colours of the whole page together. Fab layout Sal, it's so good to see you creating again! x

  3. I think my last comment was just gobbled by the internet!

    That's some rather fab stitching Sal, really ties the whole layout together having the colour in the border. I love the whole thing and the snowflakes are so pretty! It's so good to have you back creating again x

  4. Lovely layout Sally. Love the sparkle and the mixed fonts. That stitch is very effective too! :)Good luck to Toni! :)
