Hi there! It’s Katelyn from A Creative Journey guest designing today. I’m thrilled to be creating projects using the amazing Elizabeth Craft Designs products! When I design I love to combine layers, inks, and die cuts to make my projects come to life.

Repeat for all snowflakes. (Note: White Silk Microfine Glitter is opaque. For more sparkle, substitute Warm or Cool Diamond.)
