Dream Big - SOUS Die Cut Snowflake Challenge

SOUS Die Cut Friday.  Hoping you all are still in the holiday spirit, and now that the presents have all been opened and some much needed down time availale I hope you can find the time to escape and create.  My suggestion is to tell the family there are left overs in the fridge and to knock before they enter you crafty space. :)      For this weeks challenge we were asked to create anything with a snowflake.  Opportunity to finish up some hunting trip photos of my favorite fellas from one of their many trips to Illinois.   The Snow is always beautiful and the bundled up guys are precious to me.
Be sure to visit the official SOUS BLOG for all the teams creative inspiring ideas.    I just love this group of gals and if you have not visited in a while please do as there are several new amazing ladies that have joined us and their work is oh so inspiring!
Also, be sure to link up!  we love love to see everyones creations.    

For this layout I used some of the newest Cricut Cartridges,  Edge to Edge for the Snowflake background and for the main snowflake Anna Griffin Winter Wonderland.  If you do not have these might I recommend you finding them before they are no longer available!

SOUS Ornament challenge

Welcome December, Welcome Christmas!  My favorite time of year.  It is the most wonderful time of the year by far!    Today is SOUS Friday and this weeks die cut challenge, create an ornament.  I could not wait to get my hands into the new Cricut cartridge by Anna Griffin, Winter Wonderland.  The shadow box below is what I came up with.   LOVE LOVE this !!   I added  depth with foam pop dots.
satin trim and glitter.   I used red ric rak along the inside of the glass on the upper portion and think this really gives it the vintage look I was going for.  The outer fame of the box was covered in gold glitter paper and aged with Tim Holtz inkers.     I see lots of new projects on the horizon with this cartridge.  Thank you for stopping by and thanks to you Anna Griffin for a great and Wonderful partnership with Provo Craft.

The Cuts !!
