In this mess a lot of creating is going on....

     Yes, I confess it takes my studio desk getting this messy for me to finally stop, clean and start messing it up all over again.  It really isn't my fault....in the middle of finishing up some orders I got the bug to play with some vinyl that has been in the closet for a year.  One thing led to another and this is the mess that was left at the end of the day.  It will be cleaned up tomorrow after art class so I can finish the last of my ornament order - I can only work in that kind of mess for a while.   Besides I can't continue with the vinyl until my order arrives....I just had to have some gold and silver, black was fine, but I need some color.
     Below is an Exploding Box card I worked on before the mess ensued  ...I have confessed on this one to getting carried away with the bling and glitter, but I love it.  There are a few more sheets of this delish striped foil paper left in my stash and I think I am going to have to make another of these lovelies.  

     Most of this was created on my Silhouette Cameo - Joy is a die cut and the snowflakes are some embellishments in my large stash of Christmas stuff.  The foil paper looked great on the outside but I felt that it needed some protection so I embossed some acetate with my snowflake EF and layered in over the striped paper - I was very pleased with the effect.  The red glittery paper is light and beautiful and I am kicking myself for not buying a second pad of it when it was on sale and available last season, oh well......It is lovely.
