Good Wednesday morning to you!! What a gorgeous sunny day out there!! Only FOUR days left in the 50% off almost everything pre-inventory clearance sale (excludes Big Shot Bundles, Cutterpillars, any special orders that are being held behind the counter, Southern Ridge Trading Company product & already marked clearance items)... I'm expecting it to be another crazy day in here. :D Better to get here early - there are some very popular items that are already sold out, so shop early in order to avoid being disappointed! We are open today from 10am until 4pm. See you soon - cheers! :)
By this time in December, I really want snow. But only for Christmas! LOL! I am a fair weather girl, but nothing beats waking up to a winter wonderland on Christmas morning...
My second submission for this months Christmas words challenge is SNOW.... as in Let it Snow! ;) So what else could I use but snowflakes & lots of them?
Karen's large Snowflake Wreath was the perfect starting point for this project. I also used pieces from Snowflakes 712, Snowflakes 713, and Snowflakes 714. And since I LOVE her wooden Small Marked Reindeer, I used another one of them from my DT package.
All of the wooden and chipboard pieces were then sprayed with a good layer of Heidi Swapp's Gold Colour Shine. Once they were dry, I started assembling the wreath, adding some greenery from Tim Holtz's Holiday Greens dies, some berries that were punched out of red paper and some bling to spruce up the middle of the snowflakes. I used a Memory Box die & cut out the Let It Snow title from the centre of the die.
I put everything on a black mat, then matted it all on a super glittery gold paper. I think it just pops and will be a centre piece on my Christmas mantle this year.
Thanks for looking! We appreciate the support we've had at SRTC over the past year! Merry Christmas and a very safe & prosperous New Year to you all! Cheers -- Melissa :)

It's officially the start of Christmas! Are you short on Christmas card supplies? We have everything you need to make some on short notice. The Memory Box wall has a large selection of dies for quick cards. Plus, you need to come in and check out the Blue Fern Vintage Christmas line! The paper is stunning! You will not be disappointed!
We are here from 10:00 - 4:00. Stop in to say Hi :-)
So many words to describe Christmas! And it's hard to narrow it down and pick one to do my first December challenge with... but I chose the word BELIEVE and imagine that, Karen has an amazing wooden piece with just that word!
Because the wood pieces have a beautiful glow to them from the wood burning process that Karen uses, I didn't have to do very much to make this piece any better! I sprayed the piece plus another of the Small Marked Reindeer with the Marshmallow Tattered Angels spray. It just gives a glittery effect over the wood pieces without changing the colour of the wood pieces. I added a couple of rhinestones to accent the deer as well.
I added some bling & Memory Box die cuts over the Bo Bunny patterned paper to complete my 6x6 card.
Quick - easy - beautiful! My mantra!!
I look forward to seeing your Christmas Word creations -- Cheers! Melissa
