Guest Designer for the Winter Collection!

I'm so excited to share with you that I am once again joining Create with Connie and Mary as a guest designer for the Create with Connie and Mary Winter Collection! I'm so honored to be a designer among such a talented group!

The Winter Collection is a collection of exclusive downloadable tutorials, from card collections to last minute gift projects. The Early bird special of $24.95 (regular price is $29.95), which is an awesome price for all the exclusive projects you get; less than $1 per project! Hop over to Create with Connie and Mary to check out the full details and see the design team!

My exclusive 3D project (yikes, I can't tell you!) uses the whimsical stamp set Snow Day. I made a card sample for you, to show off just how cute this set is!

I finally got a chance to use the envelope punch board! Isn't my matching envelope cute?! I love how easy it is to use; there is no math involved (which I normally enjoy, but that doesn't make envelope making very quick).
