I unpackaged the Snowflake Splendour suite today. It's full of beautiful things: stamps, delicate snowflake dies, iridescent ribbon, gorgeous DSP that's Christmas on one side and watercolour wash on the other, an embossing folder, shiny blue baubles... wonderful! In the Southern Hemisphere, it's always the dilemma - Christmas is mid-summer and not a snowflake in sight, so - what to do?
So what I do is think about the people in the Northern Hemisphere to whom cards are sent for one. Secondly, I think about how many people, even in New Zealand, still associate Christmas with snowy scenes - the archetypal memories live long. Thirdly, I think about how much pleasure I'm going to get from making projects with such beautiful things and embrace it.
In the spirit of embracing it, I looked to the sketch at Paper Craft Crew Challenge for inspiration, just to give the items a preliminary work out!
