Happy New Year, crafty friends! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and were able to celebrate in some special way. It may have been a quiet holiday for many of you, as it was for me… but regardless, it sure was nice to close the book on 2020, wasn’t it? Now here we are in January, in a brand new year with new possibilities, a fresh start, and a clean slate! Cheers to that!
For all you fans of sketch layouts, January also brings a new set of sketches on the PageMaps site. And once again, I was so very happy to be able to create a few projects using the new January CardMaps designs. Here is the first of the sketches that I used, and my take on it using stamps from LDRS Creative.
This is the adorable LDRS Snowball Fight stamp and die set that I received for a Therm O Web collaboration back in December. Ever since I got my sweet pup Finley, who very much reminds me of an arctic fox, I simply cannot resist cute fox images like these. I stamped these cuties in Tuxedo Black ink onto PhotoPlay Paper cardstock and colored them with Copic markers. They were then die cut with the coordinating dies.
The sketch used an assortment of shapes and frames behind the focal image, so I tried to recreate that look with a variety of dies. The circles and the fold-over tag are new-to-me dies from Reverse Confetti. I added a snowbank border die cut using Heffy Doodle’s stitched Slopey-Joes border dies, too.
Hope your January is off to a great start! I’ve never really been one for making New Year’s resolutions, but my head is filled with dreams and goals for the upcoming year. Mostly revolving around crafting and fun. 😀
How about you, friends? Any new resolutions out there?
