Winter



Frosty Fun Birthday Card

Hello Craft Room friends, Melinda here with you today. My task was to share something with a winter theme. So I decided to use two of the new files in the Craft Room to create this wintery fun birthday card. Often I create birthday cards that aren't necessarily specific to the season in which they happen, but this card is going to my niece who was born in the first week of January. Plus she lives in Michigan, so I thought a cute little snowman card would fit the bill.


Folded Dimensional Paper Snowflake

Folded Dimensional Paper Snowflakes

My daughter came home from an activity a few weeks ago with a super cool folded dimensional snowflake. It was unlike anything I'd seen before. She created it by folding and cutting several pieces of paper and then gluing them together in cool patterns. I knew immediately these would be a hit with grownup kids too, so I created a few for you to cut out.



Christmas Memories Project Pattern

Christmas is a time when precious memories are made. Most of us snap photos as a way to preserve the feeling of that special time. If you are like me you take hundreds of digital photos! But, do you ever get them off of the memory disk, print them and put them on a scrapbook page? I have to admit that it seems like I rarely get around to making the pages that I envision when I pose my family for a photo. This year, I plan to break that pattern of procrastination and get those photos printed and down on a page. In anticipation of that resolution, I have designed four different scrapbook pages for this month's Project pattern

Winter Swag made entirely of paper

12 Gifts of Christmas-Day #5: ...

Join in on the fun and creative Gifts and Recipes in a Jar.  These are such quick and easy ways to put together a gift for a neighbor, friend or co-worker. There are three different concept types here for your creativity.


Pop Out Box

When Samantha shared this concept of a project to me, I was immediately excited to turn it into a project that would be a great gift. This is what Samantha said for her inspiration, "Christmas has always been my favorite time of the year! From sledding down giant hills to sitting around the Christmas tree and drinking hot cocoa, there is nothing really that isn't magical about this glorious time of the year.  By creating a miniature living room with letters to Santa and even a fireplace, I feel like this would be a fun and unique way to create a gift." Well, she was right, with a place for money and a gift card all in a self contained box that turns into it's own special scene, you can create that magical feeling with this very special gift.


Paper Snow Globe Christmas Project

12 Gifts of Christmas-Day #1: ...

As the Christmas season rolls around each year, my family looks forward to our tradition of watching as many Christmas movies as we can. My favorites are the classic stop motion movies that were on television when I was a kid, like Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. I loved to think that every scene was created in miniature and filmed one step at a time. These little snow globes remind me of those miniature scenes and I hope you will enjoy them. The file features several different options so you can mix and match your snow globe to your liking. You can cut them all from white for a monochromatic look or cut each layer in color. I used glass bowls I found at Dollar Tree store. They have a 3.5" opening and 3.5" flat bottom. If you can't find the exact bowl, substitute with a bigger size and adjust the files.

Tri-Fold Holiday Cards Project Pattern

You don't have to look very far to see the obvious signals that we are well into the holiday season. Halloween is almost here and before you know it, we will be roasting our turkeys and putting up the Christmas tree. 'Tis the season for crafting and if you are like me, you are already thinking about whether you will make your cards or buy them this year. Allow me to help you get the card making process started. This months project pattern is a fun tri-fold card that can be used for the upcoming holidays and on into the new year.



Got Snow Layout Cutting Files

Got Snow Layout

An adorable 8 1/2" x 11" two page layout for those snowy days. Room for 5 photos! Easily adapt to 12"x12" format as well.


Cut and Paste Sketches: Snowy ...

Yesterday was the first day back to school after the holiday break for my kids. Saturday night the weatherman was predicting a big storm headed our way with snow Sunday through Monday. While I groaned aloud, they started celebrating the possibility of a snow day and thus another day of freedom. I made a snow day layout with the weather forecast in mind. But guess what? It didn't happen. It rained instead, and they were back to the grind yesterday.


Upcycled Winter Home Decor Sign

One of my friends was going to throw out an old home décor sign and asked if I wanted it. I originally said no. The sign was funny but nothing I would use. Then I got to thinking about it and told her I had changed my mind and I would love to have it. The whole time I was thinking about how I was going to repurpose it. I decided to make a winter sign instead of a holiday sign, so I could use it throughout the season. I was going to sand the sign down and repaint it but then I decided to just flip the sign over and use the back, as the base coat was the exact color I needed.



Snow Globe Cards Cutting Collection

Snow Globe Cards Cutting Collection: ...

If the weather outside is frightful, stay inside and capture a winter scene with a snow globe card. This collection features eight different winter scenes in a cute tri-fold shaped card plus sentiments you can mix and match for the perfect card.


Frozen Wand

Winter Ice Princess Wand

From what I can tell it is going to be a very Frozen Halloween. Every little girl that I know between the ages of three and six is dressing up as one of the characters from the movie Frozen. I figured maybe the situation is the same in your neck of the woods and a few of you might be in need of an Ice Princess Wand to go along with a costume. Of course these ice princess wands would also be a hit at a winter or Frozen themed party. To make this wand I used the Rosette Snowflakes Cutting Collection and mixed and matched the different snowflakes in layers. After the layers were assembled I added some chunky glitter and Dew Drops gems to add a little bling. I attached the snowflake to a painted dowel and tied various ribbon scraps around the top of the wand.




Ice Princess Party Favors

Snowflake Winter Party Favors

“Let it Go, Let It Go……” is sung in our household, and my car repeatedly! This movie is so loved in our household, that my almost 5 year old son has chosen it as his theme for his upcoming birthday party at the end of August. The Pazzles Party CD 51 holds many amazing files that can be tweaked as required for your chosen theme. I adore making party décor and favours, and these files give you an excellent base to work from. Most of the pieces of my party are taken from other themed parties on the Party CD and remade with my winter party theme. Circus Pinwheels to Ice Pinwheels These make the quickest little additions to a sweet table or to give as party favours. I plan to make more of these in coordinating colours, and adding a touch of glitter to the corners adds more festivity! They don’t have to spin either, fastening them to a paddle pop stick and used as a static display is quite okay.


Make A Wish Birthday Card

Winter reminds me of snowflakes and mittens. With this in mind I got an idea to create a winter birthday card. I started with a 5" x 7" base card,  and then went ahead and created a scalloped border using the making scallops video. The video makes it so easy to create any size scalloped borders. I used the Mittens cutting file found in the Craft Room Library and created an outline for the mittens. I also created two basic circles and printed the Make A Wish sentiment.


Coffee Cup Circle Card

I wanted to create a special birthday card for a friend who loves coffee. I decided to create her card using the coffee theme. I used the Scallop Sunshine cutting file, Coffee Cup and the Let It Snow file, all of which can be found in the Craft Room Library. I enlarged the sunshine cutting file to 6 inches and mirrored and welded it to create a shaped card.
