I'm back home after traveling this past weekend to attend my 20 year high school reunion. It was great seeing my classmates after all of these years. I even got to go see my high school marching band perform. That brought back so many good memories. Of course while I was there I also got to see my mom, my sister, my nieces, and nephew. It was a great trip and I had a wonderful time.
I don't have the tutorial finished that I mentioned in the last post because I've been busy traveling. I do, however, promise to have that done and posted in the next day or two. I just have a couple more photos to take and some editing to do.
In the meantime, I thought I'd share with you a great project that Kathleen brought to my downline shoebox swap.
It's difficult to see in the photo, but the light blue layer was run through the Big Shot using the Snow Burst embossing folder. Normally the snowflakes would be sticking out of the paper, but I turned the paper over so that the snowflakes were indented and dipped down into the paper. I hope that makes sense. It gave it a slightly different look that seemed to go better with the die cut snowflakes.
The Top Note die was cut a little differently so that when you open the Top Note piece...
it reveals a gift card inside. Isn't that such a fun idea? Kathleen made a great tutorial and she gave me permission to share it with you. You can download Kathleen's picture tutorial by clicking here. At the bottom of her tutorial you will also find a link to a video tutorial that she used to make this project.
I hope you enjoy making one of these for yourself. Thank you Kathleen for sharing this project and your tutorial with all of us!
