Winter Storm

Waking up Monday morning to this beautiful winter wonderland, couldn't help but inspire me to create a pretty "winter-y"  layout, which was just right for this week's Heart 2 Heart Challenge.  
 The Avonlea Workshop on the Go was perfect to create this page showcasing our two children and our new snow friend.  
If you signed up for my Scrappy Creations Class, you will enjoy creating this layout tonight along with 3 very pretty cards.

Simply Irresistible!

January's Scrappy Creation Class will be creating 3 beautiful cards using a simple but eye catching technique called embossed resist stamping.  Did you know an embossed image will resist ink? To create this pretty lace looking image I embossed the image in clear and then sponged 3 different colors (olive, chocolate and slate) on the image to create this pretty effect.  I love how the image popped.  The resist technique really showcases the details of this pretty stamp set.        
 The design was inspired by this weeks Mojo Monday sketch.
Check out more creations on the Mojo Monday Blog.

This card was created using Close to my Heart's Avonlea Workshop on the Go.
