Snowflake Tag & a Freebie

Hi all!

If  you are looking for the Fred She Said Christmas Challenge go HERE.

Here are the details of my Snowflake tag project :)

For the tag, I drew a snowflake to use in my cutting machine.

I have a Digital Snowflake Freebie for you to download. It is on my (UPDATED JUN 2017 link working)


  I have included an SVG cutting file, a black png for auto-tracing into your cutting software if you can't open SVG.  Also a bunch of PNGs and coloured jpgs you can print and cut or design with.

I cut the snowflake out of cereal box board and painted with gesso, inked with a glue pad and applied glamour dust.  I cut the backer out of card stock and sponged on some Iced Spruce distress ink.  The image is Hat Tipping Snowman.  I embellished with Stickles and a Viva Pearl Pen and MS Branch punch.

I'd like to thank DEBBIE and CAROL H for being on the Fred She Said DT.  Sadly they are leaving and we will miss them and their wonderful contributions.   I wish you both all the best - BIG HUGS!

:)*  Fred

New in the Store: Christmas Poinsettia Lantern

Hi all!  Just a note that I added a new product to the store.  This was a request from Nancy  :)

John 8:12

Both Pre-coloured and Digi images are included along with extra images, sentiments and script backgrounds.  This will be a favourite of mine for my family Christmas card making for sure :)

Have a great day!
