Update On Snowflakes



     Hello fellow crafters! Today Erica has asked the Design Team to use the theme Cold Hands Warm Heart so I decided to jump in here an give you an update on my Snowflakes project that I did a few weeks back.                   Do you remember these?
                                                               Well, how about these?
                                                  What about that empty terrarium? 
     Well I thought this might fit with the theme today since I have the snowflakes to make your hands cold but, my collection of Snowbabies from Dept. 56 just might warm your heart!
     I love how my snowflakes just added to the fun these figures are having. Since the snowflakes all hang at different levels, it really does give the illusion of snow falling!!!!

This is the night time view. So peaceful don't you think?

     Since we have little fingers that love to get into Mema's things, I started to display my ornaments where the grand children could be really appreciate my collection. They love to pull up a chair and just look at all the different snow babies and what they are doing. I run a strip of  blue and gold lights in the bottom of the case and then cover the wires with fluff. I finish it off by sprinkling some "snow" on top. When things get crazy around the Holidays I am  amazed to see how each person takes a moment to just gaze at these little 
guys.
     All the snowflakes were cut using the Cricut cartridge "When It's Cold Outside!" to make some 3D snowflakes. I cut them @ 1 1/4" and 1 1/2". I love how this came out and the snowflakes added the perfect touch.
     I hope you have enjoyed my update. Now be sure to head back over to My Cricut Craft Room and see what the rest of the team has to share with you.

Very sweet. The lights make the snowbabies look alive and magical. I have a collection of snowbabies myself. I was thinking of selling them because I no longer have the space.
Have a very blessed and Merry Christmas!
