still winter... still walkin'...

just a reminder that "winter wonderland", the current challenge at shopping our stash, will run for another week, so you've got plenty of time to link up wintery-- but non-holiday-- cards and projects!

plain white gift bag, wired ribbon and liquitex white modeling paste: michaels; cerulean, indigo and ultramarine color burst pigment powders: ken oliver crafts; silver glitter embossing paste: viva decor;silver gel pen: sakura; clear stickles and snowflake stencil: ranger; sticky back pearls and large pearl brad: eyelet outlet

i had a blast making this, you might even say i had SNOW MUCH FUN. on second thought, probably you wouldn't say that, and i shouldn't either, lol! anyway, i used cerulean blue colorburst to tint plain white embossing paste, which i applied through one of my favorite stencils. then i outlined around the flakes with a silver gel pen, added some sparkly glitter glue and embellished a big ribbon bow with a few diecut snowflakes cut from various blue color burst panels leftover from other projects. for the record, this is my FAVORITE place to see snow... sooooooo much more convenient than, say, on the roads outside my house!

hope you had an awesome holiday and that you're jumping back in to some crafty fun as things start to calm down again. hop over to SOS if you have a minute, we'd love for you to join us! ♥


  1. How gorgeous is this bag, I wouldn't give it away it would be a Christmas decoration for years to come. The shades of blue are beautiful as are the snowflakes. You are so talented.

  2. This is soooo beautiful Lauren. Just love how you embellished the ribbon and yum those snowflakes just love them but only as a decoration not the real ones lol 😂❤️
