Gifts from the Heart Blog Hop Day 1

Thank you so much for joining us for the Gifts from the Heart Blog Hop! If you've just started, be sure to click here and start at the beginning at SVG Attic's blog. If you have arrived from SVG Attic's Blog, then you are on the right track! 

For my 'Gift from the Heart' I decided to create a "snow globe" for my Mom. My mom is the kinda person that purchases all of the animated stuffed animals that sing and dance. Yes, yes, I know... she will push all the buttons in the store and have a grand ole time. I remember one year she just about purchased every animated character on the shelf. Anyway, she loves to decorate for Christmas and whenever I have created a new set, it goes to her. She will not allow me to recycle it. I am far from being a pack rat so I throw out anything I can, just ask my kids...

So onto my project....

Isn't it so cute?

I used the Paper Ornament Collection and only used 15 of the sections.

Created a base using basic shapes in SCAL.

Cut out the Church, Snowman, and Pine Tree from the Candy Cane Lane Collection.

I hope you like my project.. to give you an idea of the size, the church was cut out at 3.5" width, it's set to cut out at 11"... teenie tiny!
