Kim threw me for a loop by choosing this week's challenge at Just Add Ink ..... Just Add Snowflakes.  I had nothing in my (rather extensive) stash that fit the bill, so, *sigh*, had to place a Stampin' Up! order - gee, the lengths I go to, to meet my Design Team commitments!

I ordered the "snowflake-y" new Winter Frost Designer Series Paper, and some delightful embellishments (called Frosted Finishes), that will be available to purchase from 29th August.  As a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I get to buy goodies before they're officially released, which is a bit exciting.  Check out the die-cut "Merry" - that's courtesy of another gorgeous new product coming out in the Holiday Catalogue.  LOVE it!

Stamps: Evergreen
Card: Pool Party, Smoky Slate, Whisper White
Ink: Pool Party and Smoky Slate stampin' pads
DSP: Winter Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper (available 29th August)
Other: Labels Collection framelits, Festive Paper-Piercing Pack, Paper-Piercing tool and Stampin' Pierce Mat,  Pool Party seam binding, sponge dauber, Expressions thinlits dies (available 29th August), two-way glue pen, glue dots

Be sure to check out the rest of the Just Add Ink Design Team's samples.  We hope you join in this week's challenge to add snowflakes to your papercraft project!
