12 Days of Christmas: Day 3


It may be December, but the snow is few and far between, if you ask me. However, my love for snow is conditional. I like my snow all done by January 1 at which point, it can then go away.

We’ve had a little bit here and there, but nothing to write home about.


So when I saw snowflakes in Maggie’s photos yesterday, it made me happy. I’ll see ‘snow’ one way or the other. You can’t go wrong with a snowflake…unless maybe you live some place that never gets snow. ;) It’s really a pretty little snowflake and she made it look so good with her pillow boxes.

But just like real snowflakes, no two diecut snowflakes are ever really alike. They can be used in so many different ways!

Today’s ‘snow’ comes all the way from Germany and Miss Paige Evans, who is visiting us for the holidays. If you know Paige, you know full well the style you’re about to see from her. I think if you look up ‘paper piecing’ in the dictionary, you’ll see Paige’s name right there as a synonym.

Okay. Let’s all say it together…



Isn’t it just beautiful?

This girl has a way with paper and her cutter!

Here are instructions from Paige on how to create the page:

  1. Draw the snowflake with a pen onto patterned paper using a Silhouette Cameo.
  2. Using a paper piercer, poke a hole every 1/4″ all the way around the snowflake.
  3. Backstitch through the snowflake using white thread.
  4. Hand cut patterned papers to fit inside the snowflake pieces.
  5. Layer a photo and embellishments in the center.
  6. Stamp the light strand on smooth white cardstock, cut out, and tuck under the photo.
  7. Stamp the “Merry & Bright” title onto smooth white cardstock, cut out, and adhere to the photo for the title.
  8. Embellish with wood veneer and die cuts then journal on a tag tucked under the photo.

So amazing. And what a great way to use your scraps!
Thanks so much for joining us for the holidays Miss Paige!

If you follow me on social media, you heard me say that as a result of making yesterday’s holly image, I had Have a Holly Jolly Christmas in my head all day.


I make no excuses for today’s print. ;)
And I may have tweaked the phrase…I kind of liked the saying in the moment.


This is no longer available as a freebie, but you can find it in the store.

This not only includes a PNG for printing, but it also includes cut files so you can change colors, as needed.



Today’s Posts of Christmas Past moment comes to you from Miss Maggie. Last year she made this page and I fell in love with all the layers. She had me at white-on-white….and all those fa-la-la’s! Check out the whole thing HERE.

    Fabulous snowflake I like all the different patterns she added…I love to see snow on Christmas Day but this year it doesn’t look like we will be getting any. The weather here in CT has been a bit warmer then usual. Thank you so much for the wonderful freebie phrase :)
