Snowflakes galore

I made these holiday tags few days ago when we still had this unseasonably warm weather. 60s on Thanksgiving in Wisconsin?? Who would thought that? But yesterday and today the temperatures we back into lower 30s and the snowflakes on my tags suddenly look very appropriate. 

Bo Bunny November card challenge is to make a tag. I still had some Midnight Frost scraps from 2 years ago. I took them out and went to work.

Supplies: patterned paper (Bo Bunny), ribbon (Bo bunny), stamp(Whipper Snapper Designs), glitter Galze (Li'l Davis), ink (Clearsnap), jewel (Doodlebug), twine (unknown)

I stamped the ice skates image on white cardstock, cut it out and covered with a layer of Glitter Glaze. The Bo Bunny pleated ribbon was perfect for making a rosette. The big snowflake is cut with Silhouette using the design from the Silhouette store. It took me few tries till I was happy with the size.

I created the Happy Holidays sentiment in the Silhouette Studio software by typing each letter separately and welding them together. It cuts as one piece! If you didn't notice before I am pretty excited about my Silhouette and what I can do with it! Silhouette 101 class with Amanda Jones that just ended, was really helpful in motivating me to start using it right away. I can't wait to learn more! 

I finished with some twine and tiny jewel as a dot on i.
The tags will be perfect for Lila's ice skating coaches.

After making the tags I was left with few cut snowflakes that were too small for the tags. They were too cute to be thrown away and I decided to make a layout. This layout is based on the PageMaps sketch. The tag is another shape from the Silhouette store that I modified for my needs.

Supplies: cardstock (American Crafts), patterned paper (Bo Bunny and Basic Grey), ribbon (Bo Bunny), jewels (Bo Bunny), thickers (American Crafts), letter stickers (Bo Bunny), border sticker (Bo Bunny), washi tape (Love My Tapes), snowflake stickers (EK Success), stickles (Ranger), heart punch (Fiskars), corner punch (Fiskars), Silhouette Cameo, colored pencils

To make the hearts I covered a piece of white cardstock with washi tape and punched out the hearts with Fiskars squeeze punch.

I added blue and silver stickles to the snowflakes for extra sparkle.

I have less than one sheet of paper and some ribbon and stickers left from this collection. Should I let them go or should I make something else? Hmmm
