It’s about time to start packing up all of my holiday decorations. It always makes me a little sad. All of those cute decor projects I have made over the years put back safely in their boxes. Today for Monday Craft Madness I decided to make a winter project so I can still have a homemade happy project on my mantle. I used Doodlebug Desgins Winter Wonderland Kit to make this project and it definitely made me smile….. So today’s theme is:

Smile

Show us something that makes you smile. A project you created, a layout with a super smiley photo, or a card you received that made you smile whatever strikes your fancy. Here’s what I created:

I got some wooden letters on clearance from a craft store. I covered them with the papers in this kit and added some embellishments. Super easy project that can sit on my mantle until it stops snowing. In Utah, that could be until June! I love having happy projects on display.

I love how this collection has papers that are flocked and glittered. Adding dimension without even trying is one of the best parts of scrapbooking!
