Snow Days Blog Hop - Day 2

Welcome to the Snow Days Blog Hop!
We're so happy you could join us for this super-fun hop showcasing cards, layouts and projects that featuring everything about Snow Days! You'll find an array of ideas throughout the hop - we hope you enjoy each and every project along the way! 

If you'd like to join our Snow Days fun, then you're in the right place. Keep alert for blog candy along the way, as some hop stops will be offering some goodies. 

For the second day of the hop, I created a snowflake banner. This was actually the first project I made using my Cricut, so I'm super excited to share it with you! I used the Winter Lace cartridge to make all of the layers of snowflakes.

Sorry about the gold background, we actually don't have any white walls in my house, so I had to go with hanging the banner against a sandy beige color paint, even though it looks much more gold in the picture. The colors of the snowflakes are pretty exact, though. 

Here's a close-up of each letter. None of these snowflakes are the same! :) The bigger snowflakes were cut at 6 inches and I believe the smaller snowflakes were cut at 3 inches. The letters are from the Pooh Font cart and were cut at 2 1/2 inches, I believe. They look black in the picture but are really dark blue.

And now for the fun part of the hop... blog candy! I'm giving away the following winter goodies:
- 1 spool of light blue ribbon
- 1 package of snowflake stickers
- 1 package of blue flowers by Studio G
- 1 bottle of silver glitter glue by Studio G
- 1 package of blue rhinestones

Entering to win is easy! Here's what you have to do:
1.) Become a follower (if you aren't already)
2.) Leave a comment with your contact information on either day of the hop (you'll be entered twice if you comment both days! :)
3.) Like the 'Made Especially For You' Facebook page

The winner will be randomly chosen and announced on Monday January 9th.
