Peace on Earth

peace on earth side

The countdown to Christmas is on! With less than 3 months to go I'm sure most of you have started thinking what kind of adorable projects to start making for friends, family and co-workers.  Well I have a solution for you.  I've decided to embark on a Christmas project tutorial blitz.

For the next 12 weeks I will be releasing a new FREE tutorial every week commencing 2 October and finishing 18 December!

Some will be super easy and some will be more involved. While you may find some projects are old favorites, a number of them will be brand new.

This weeks project is a card featuring Stampin' Up! Snowflake Soiree Stamp set carried over from last year.
