Keeping With The Snowflakes

After the cards in my last post I decided that I wanted to make a 12" border of snowflakes for a scrapbooking lay out. I continued to play with my Gypsy. I have fallen in love with this thing because I can take it anywhere, save my project, and pick it up at a later time or day and then to make things even better when I am ready to cut the design that I have created I no longer have to pull 12 or more cartridges off the shelf and then change them in and out of my Cricut machine. The Gypsy does that for me. I love it.

I do not remember how many cartridges are used for this border but I know it was a lot of them because I wanted each snowflake to be different. The finished snowflake border is 11 3/4 inches long and 3 inches wide.

It is my plan to use this on a page and then take a few more individual snowflakes (either made with the Cricut or with some of my punches) and scatter them on the pages to accent. I also plan on using some Stickles on them so that my snowflakes all sparkle the way a newly fallen snow does when the sun hits it.

I guess today my challenge for you is to play, experiment, and enjoy creating something that is truly just "you."

Happy Scrappin' ! ! !
