Snow Blog Hop!

Welcome to the I Love Snow Blog Hop!


This hop is being organized by Lisa from http://honeybearzdesigns2011.blogspot.com/
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 
HUGE SNOW STORM!!!  
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!

  9. Shawn: Nice wall art project. I've been wanting to do some for our house but haven't yet; I will definitely try Square 1 when I do based on your comments. =)
