    One last Painted Season idea, okay maybe two.

    One last Painted Season I found One last Painted Season idea. Okay, really there are two. Shhh, Dad do not tell mom. I made this with here in mind,. It is smaller, but thought maybe she would put it up by the sink. This small shadow box is 5 3/4 x 5 3/4 inches. It really does go off the sides and top though. Using Mossy Meadow and Basic White for the greenery of the Christmas Pinecones dies. Six of the pinecones and then the berries too. I really look forward to having this set to use for the Christmas in July for 2022. Well as an option anyway. Okay,…

    It Started With Facebook Live, first Wednesday.

    It Started With Facebook Live I would love for you to join me Wednesday nights for It Started With Facebook Live. We start at 6:30 central time and it is always a fun time. For the first Wednesday in August we made the above. The Painted Christmas Suite ( bundle 1, bundle 2 and DSP) does not disappoint. I will say that the die cuts really are amazing. These two layers and add a few pine cones and boom. No need for DSP on this one. However, the Sale-a-Bration Be Dazzling specialty paper is awesome. Especially once you figure out that you need to cut it from the top. Yes,…
