Wintertime Through the Window....

For many of us when we look out our's clear that it is Wintertime! However for some of you lucky fans...Wintertime is just a word...not something  you experience where you live. One of our fans yesterday posted from Maui...and we're pretty certain snow is not a normal part of her weather.

Regardless of where you live you can always bring a little wintertime into your home and decor! Today Designer Carole Janson has a sweet way to create your own winter window and Lesley Langdon shares a beautiful layout that we know you'll be recreating!

Step 1- I used a 11 x 9 inch Landscaped White Frame, then I took the frame apart, and put some 3D Combo Foam on the back of the Matt and then stuck it over Blue Cardstock and cut around and attached the matt back onto the frame.
Step 2- I then trimed 6 pieces of Echo Park pattern paper 2.5 x 2.5 inches, and stuck to the blue background paper with Glue arts perma Tac and added the snowflake border stickers.
Step 3- Stick the Snowflake Border from the Echo Park stickers on to Red Cardstock and cut around, then cut the stickers in half and stick to the top and bottom of the frame as shown in photo.
Step 4- Stick other pieces from the Echo Park stickers onto cardstock cut around and adhere to the square pieces using the Glue Arts 3D Combo foam, you can also add gems, twinery etc.
Step 5- Create a cute banner using Red Cardstock Echo Park pattern paper and some twinery, and stick to the frame using the Glue Arts Glue Gun and Sticks.
Step 6 - Add pom poms to the hat for added detail.
Closer look at embellishments and detail.
