FIrst Snow

We had our first snow a few weeks back. Unfortunately it has all melted away and we haven't gotten any more snow since then. My son was so excited and couldn't wait to get outside and play in it.

The large black scallop circle, snowflakes, and the tacky tape scallop circle frame can be purchased at Creative Cuts & More. I used My Minds Eye cardstock and bits and pieces of solid cardstock from my stash as well as American Crafts Thickers.

This was my first time playing with CC&M's tacky tape die cuts. Boy are these fun. I took a few pictures as I played with them so you could have a better idea of what they are.

Here, I am peeling the top layer off.

This is what it looks like without the top layer and its ready to stick beads, flock, glitter, etc. to it.

Here I am sprinkling Doodlebug bubblegum glitter over it. The Doodlebug bottles are kinda deceiving. There is A LOT of glitter packed into those little bottles!

Here is the end result. I then peeled off the back layer and placed it down on my layout where I wanted it.

I had so much fun playing with this tacky tape die cut and can't wait to try some more shapes! I bet you would too!

Update: I created this post early, in case I wasn't able to do it this morning. We have snow, plenty to play in. Plenty of ice underneath it to cause the roads to be horrible! But, there is nothing quite like the 'first' snow of the season! Especially for the little ones!

That is super cute! I am openly addicted to MME and not seeking help at this time! :-) I love that glitter! Those little bottles are packed full!
