Hi everyone! I'm here today with a snow adventure layout and process video for you today!

I’m sharing a quick and easy layout featuring snowflakes to recreate a winter wonderland. We don’t get much snow in the south so we really live it up when we go snow skiing each year. From snow ball fights to snow men, and even snow boarding, we love playing in the snow!

This layout features white misting and layers of snowflakes to give it a powdery fresh feel.

I just love the snow globes—they come in large and regular sized, which also includes snow flake wood veneer circles!

The embellishments from the November kit and add-ons bring it all together with the perfect pops of colors and the This Season Phrase Stickers are the perfect addition to tell the story around the page.
See how it all came together in my process video, where I’ll walk you through the creative process step by step, and I even share a pretty cool tip for working with mists:

Thanks so much for watching!

Christmas Treats for Your “Sweets”

Hi everyone.  I'm here today sharing a Christmas surprise idea with you.  I made some Christmas treats for my “sweets”. My sweet girls that is and it was so fun to make these and to watch the delight my girls had wondering and discovering what was inside.
I’ll step you through how I made these but I’ll be back next week with the process video I created so you can see it come together in action!Christmas Treats by @HeatherLeopard using the @PebblesInc #cozyandbright collection #madewithpebbles #Christmas #gifts #Christmastreats
It might be a little hard to tell but these treat bags are bursting at the seams with Christmas chocolates!  These can be used as party favors, advent or just fun little treats for your friends, family and even co-workers. The great thing is that they are really easy to make if you have a pair of scissors or die cutting machine, glue and a few embellishments.

Let’s take a look at how I assembled the Christmas tree. I used my Silhouette CAMEO but you could easily hand cut these.  Either way, you need two identical cut trees. Easy, right?

Next, add brads from the embellished brads set. Alternatively, you can use die cuts, glitter, enamel dots but these brads are just so awesome.  I love the color variations and the gold rim around them.

Next, Starting at the widest part of the tree, which is the bottom, glue the bottom and the edges together until you have a large pocket.  Once dry, fill it with candies. Repeat until you are at the top and your tree is completely filled.

Here’s an example of a treat bag embellished with die cuts.  Simply adhere the die cut with strong liquid adhesive and set aside to dry.

Set them out as a surprise treat for the special people in your life.  They have no idea what’s inside and it’s so fun to watch them open their surprise.

Beware, they will want to open them all!  You could also add in different candies or other small items you think your friends and family will enjoy!
Check back next week for the process video I filmed while creating these Christmas treats for my sweets!
