New Winter Printables!


I've NEVER decorated a Winter mantle before and had tons of fun shopping and creating a full set of coordinating printables to pull it all together.  I kept my color scheme with blues, browns and white... inspiration I got from simply looking outside my window.  Blue skies, bare trees and snow.

{Well... I dreamed up the snow in my head... we don't have any yet!} 

Aside from my 16x20 subway print (which I love) - I added some easy and inexpensive accents that really helped me pull this together without spending too much.  One of my favorites is the coordinating banner.  I love snowmen - they just make me happy.


As I wondered the aisles at Michael's... I discovered that Styrofoam balls would make a great "snowball" vase filler!  To coordinate them with my print and banner, I used my "accent" papers.  I just cut them into strips and ModPodged them onto a couple of the balls.  I used a skewer to hold the ball while I made a gooey mess.  Love it!


For the word "SNOW" shown on my mantle, I just bought plain wood letters from Michael's, traced them onto one of the accent papers and ModPodged to attach.  So easy and it matches perfectly! This would work with pre-made cardboard letters as well. 


Here's a few more printable goodies now available in my shop... bookmarks, lipbalm labels & snowman soup tags.  What more could you possibly need?! :)

It's just a regular Winter Wonderland around here!

I absolutely love typesetting signs! I'd put them all over my house If I could! This one is especially great, in turquoise.
