Its Cold Outside Blog Hop Day 1

Welcome to the Its Cold Outside Blog Hop Day 1!!  


If you're here for There's Snow Business Like Snow Business, please scroll here


I'm a busy gal this weekend, if you're here for Snow Days Blog Hop, please scroll here

We're so happy you could join us for this super-fun hop showcasing cards, layouts and projects that feature everything about Its Cold Outside!! You'll find an array of ideas throughout the hop -- We hope you'll enjoy each and every project along the way!!

If you'd like to join our Its Cold Outside Blog Hop, then you are in the right place. Keep alert for blog candy along the way as some hop stops will be offering some goodies...if you have come from Yvette, then you're in the right place.



Blog candy is being offered by Chris of Visual Designs by Chris.

For the hop today, I've created a snowglobe using my Cricut Doodlecharms cartridge for the snowglobe cut at 6-inches using my Cricut Design Studio to fuse the openings together that I can put some snowman confetti inside with the adorable little snowman also from Cricut Doodlecharms cut at 3.5 inches. All is cut from my little scraps bins!!!



To create the snowglobe, you need to cut the globe part three (3) times, once with background and twice with the transparent. The snowman gets glued on the background with a layer of the transparent covering him. Using the puff dots or tape, you need to raise the level to put your confetti. Depending on the size of confetti depends on how close together the tape and/or puff dots belong. Attach at least 3/4 of the second transparent layer, put your confetti or glitter on the inside and attach the balance. I then cut an additional layer for the top to hide the tape attaching the two (2) transparent layers together!!!








Hope you enjoyed my snowglobe, keeping the snow all inside the globe staying warm and that my little snowman doesn't melt!!!! Much nicer shaking the globe and watching the snow in my nice warm home!!!



Stay warm and bundled up with that hot cocoa with extra marshmallows of course and reminisce of the snow angels in the snow!
Thank you again for checking out my project... Now hop on over to Shannon to see what Cold Outside project she has conjured up for us!!!
  

Thanks for stopping by, please come back tomorrow for another great project.


Hugs, Love, and Pixie Dust!
