Live & Love Crafts - PION PAPERS

First of all, notice my new header?  ISN'T IT CUTE?  I mean me?  LOL!  Thanks goes to the uber talented "Design by Stampin Mindy"!"  She's awesome with this kind of stuff so if you're in the market for a new blog face, check her out. 

 So this week, at Live and Love Crafts, we are bringing you inspiration for the new Pion Papers called "Wintertime in Swedish Lapland".  One of my absolute favorite things about this set is the incredible vintage images created for this collection.  I'm starting to wonder if I should make bigger cards so I can show more paper.  LOL!  Ok maybe not. hee hee

  What Christmas card can't do without a few poinsettia's?  I've distressed them with cocoa Momento ink and then added a few Wild Orchid Crafts flowers around them.  The gold spiral stamens are something new from Wild Orchid and boy are they elegant!

 This mini book was so easy and fun.  I know some time over the past few months I quickly skimmed over a mini book tutorial on Pinterest but remembered nothing.  LOL!  So I just kind of made it up as I went along but they are pretty simple and I'll definitely be making more.  As I was working on my card I took a break to hop around and noticed another teammie, Alyce, using a book too.  Hey maybe we'll start something?!  Or  maybe it's already started and I just noticed.  LOL!

Last but not least, the sweetest little shabby Angels were the perfect finishing embellie's.  Given that the Christmas card season is just around the corner (GASP!!!), I may need to restock these cuties!

So there you have it!!  Have you seen the other creations this week at Live and Love Crafts with the new Pion Papers?  Nice huh?

I'd like to enter my card into a new challenge I've never seen before:
