I hope that you had a wonderful Holiday season! I enjoyed a break from work, stamping, and recharged by spending time with my husband and son. We were so very blessed to have Josh home with us for two weeks. We hadn’t seen him since he cut his spring-break visit short in March to zip back to Connecticut as things were shutting down due to the pandemic. He had to bring his work setup with him because he had to work over the two weeks, but thanks to the wonders of the internet and work-from-home technologies he was able to do his job in VT just as well as in CT. Even though he had to work, it was so great to be able to talk when he wasn’t working and enjoy some relaxed time together. I hope that your Holiday season was uplifting for you, too.

The one stamping thing that I did work on (very slowly) was this Winter themed sampler. The Snowman Season stamp set is clearly geared toward Christmas, but with some strategic inking and focusing on snow, it is perfect to create a seasonal sampler focused on Winter. I’m excited to offer this to you as a Class-to-Go which you can create at your own pace in the comfort of your home. You may recognize this stamp set because I offered a Christmas in July class featuring this stamp set. Because many of you have the stamp set already, I’m offering two options for this class with (Option B) and without the stamp set (Option A). Given our continued need to physically distance ourselves from each other, this class format seems like the best approach to provide you all a creative outlet while staying safe. I hope that you’ll give it a try!

Everything that you will need to create the sampler will be included in the kits except the 9″ x 9″ shadowbox frame, adhesive, mini glue dots, coloring tools (I used Stampin’ Blends), Dimensionals and ink. I used Night of Navy ink for the stamped elements of the sampler. Of course, you are totally free to use what you have and create a sampler of your own design. Please consider using Host Code 36BBBKYJ when purchasing any supplies before January 20th. When you use a host code it helps offset some of my business costs for supplies used in classes and creating samples that I share on my blog.
