November Die of the Month Blog Hop

Christmas is on the horizon and of course, as makers, made Christmas Cards are our hallmark during the holidays.  This month's APG Die of the Month is Winters Solstice Snowflake.  It is a delicate doily looking snowflake done in a regal way to usher in the Holiday Season.

The Snowflake was designed by Becca but if you know her well, as a budget crafter, she intends for you to use the design year-round.  Her holiday offerings always can be dressed up for Holidays and dressed down for any other occasion and the same is true with Winters Solstice Snowflake.  

Our new die for the month of November is truly exceptional and as you can see above and will be able to see as you hop through all of our blogs.  There are so many gorgeous pieces that you can use in a lot of different ways.  Always think about separating them for other crafty endeavors or mixing them with your other APG dies too.  

My Project Today is a Winter Snowflake Calendar for your desk:

If you work in an office of any kind --a wonderful gift to get or give would be a pretty calendar to brighten up your desk for the season.  You will need a small calendar and 2 pieces of the largest piece of the die for the top and bottom for this project.  I did the top piece really fancy and kept the bottom simple since i have to add the calendar to it.  Be sure and add a piece of chipboard or thicker layer of cardstock to reinforce your piece to last.  And for the back create an easel with chipboard to help it stand up.  These would be really fun to make for each of the holidays too and just change the paper and theme.

My Second Project is a Vintage Thank you card:

And like i mentioned above-- just use one piece of the set to create an accent for a card or a box.  I only used the center piece for my card and created a little border to go across the center and then i wrapped it with peach silk ribbon to match and a few flowers and a sentiment.  The beautiful papers are from Graphic 45 and the simple cottage prints make the border look so pretty and vintage looking.

Supply List:
Paper: Graphic 45,
Ink: Tsukineko Vintage Sepia
Accessories: Silk Ribbon, small 2020 calendar, adhesives by Scrapbook.com, rhinestones
