Snow Blog Hop!

Welcome to the I Love Snow Blog Hop!

This hop is being organized by Lisa from
If you just happened to show up at my blog, 
make sure to go to Lisa's site to start the hop from the beginning.

The funny thing about the fact that I am in this hop is that I am normally the person that says that I hate snow!  I hate driving in it, and all of the hassles that come with it.  I do love the look of the snow in the trees after a fresh snowfall.  Since I live in Minnesota, snow is something I have to deal with a lot.  

When I was getting ready to make my project for this blog hop, there actually was not any snow on the ground here in Minnesota!  Then, the weekend that I made and hung up this project we got a 
So my  husband says that I brought it on with my project.

I used adhesive backed material for this project.  I like working with adhesive backed fabric better than a traditional vinyl.  I used some of the new Holiday Colors for this project.

I cut the Let It Snow phrase from my Celebrate with Flourish Cricut cartridge and layered the colors on top of each other.  Then I used some Viva Decor Pearl Pens to make little dots in a variety of colors along the flourish lines.  Below you can see a close up of one of the flourishes.

The best part is that when winter is done I can take this down and place it on a sheet of waxed paper and pack it away with my other holiday decorations and save it again for next year!  Since I used adhesive backed fabric, it is removable and will not damage the wall!


  1. Fabulous!!! I've never tried square 1, but I need to go find some because I always end up throwing my wall art away because it rips when I take it down!!! TFS!!!!!

  2. Let it snow, but only when i don't need to go someplace and i can stay where it's warm and cozy. Love your wall art. Thanks for sharing. that Square 1 sounds great.
