WORD ART ~ Heart of Ice




Tonight I decided to get out my word art muse and whipped up something new.  This word art comes in two versions - "she" and "he", so you can use this art with either your favorite ladies or gentlemen.  Also included are two snowflakes that you can use with the word art.  Each are on their own layer to allow you flexibility in placement.

You can download this word art here.

CT TAGS ~ Rebel Ice Skater


Lil Mz's Brainstorms' kit "Rebel Ice Skater" is a great kit for showing off some attitude with a winter theme.  Made to match an awesome tube called "Rebel Skater" by Arthur Crowe, this kit contains 14 beautiful scenic and textured papers and over 40 elements that can make great winter tags or winter tags with a hint of Christmas.  You can purchase both tube and kit  separately or as a two-pack at Arthur's official store.

Below are tag examples showing the use of the tube and kit.








CT TAGS ~ Purplicious Christmas




You hear the word "Christmas" and usually think of red and green, but Christmas can be beautiful in many other colors too.  "Purplicious Christmas" by Chili Designz is the perfect scrap kit in an unconventional color.  Chili takes the color purple and turns it into a thing of holiday beauty.  It contains 18 papers and over 70 elements in a palette of dark purple, lavender and ice white with accents of gold, cream, blood orange and spruce and goes perfectly with both Christmas and wintry tubes.  You can purchase this kit at S&CO.

Below are some tag examples showing the use of the kit.
