January Paper Trail Blog Hop is Wonderland

Welcome to the January Paper Trail Blog hop. This month we are featuring our beautiful wintery Wonderland paper pack, full of beautiful blues and browns with a touch of purple.  Lovely snowflakes adorn three sides of these papers and polka-dots, plaid & stripes adorn the other three sides.  I love these colors & patterns!

Terri's My Frame of Mind may have brought you to my blog.  As usual, Terri has some fantastic art to share.  If you arrived here by other means, not to worry, the blog hop is circular and you'll come back to her blog.

I designed a luminary with Wonderland using the 6x6 Kraft Die Cut Cards as a base.  Using the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge I cut snowflakes from the paper and created 3 panels to wrap around the base.  A jewel hangs in the center of the snowflake and six little diamonds are at the inner points. 

I used battery style tea lights to light the luminaries.  Here are three with lights and different papers for the main body.

With out the lights.  The color of the papers are more true in this photo.

My other offering today is a set of tags I made for an exchange.  Again cutting snowflakes from the paper, glittering and adhering to a tag.  I stamped snowflakes under the glitter snowflake cutout.  On the back, the "to" and "from" and a snow border from Winter Joy. 

I hope you've enjoyed what you've seen here.  Now hop on over to Lynne's blog, Field's Finery for some more wintery delights, and some Studio J magic.
