Russian Holiday Collection

I am pleased to introduce Russian Holiday, my newest custom die cut collection. This collection features several different custom dies including the Ice Palace, Sleigh & Reindeer, Nutcracker and Ballerina cuts.

I was not planning to design a custom die cut collection for the holidays. This is because I very much focus designing custom die cuts that are different and unique. And when it comes to the holidays, there are many options readily available from santa, to snowmen, to snowflakes to Christmas trees. But a secret sister encouraged me to do a die which got me to thinking about onions and the magical beauty of the onion dome, an element used in Russian architectural designs. I also LOVE The Nutcracker. The magnificent music and the beautiful ballet deserved a tribute page in my album. As a Russian minor, I enjoy the movie Dr. Zhivago, which inspired my Reindeer and Sleigh and Storefront pages in my mini album.

A video is loading to my YouTube channel now, and I can't link to it yet. I'll come back and make the link later

In the meantime, here are some photos to check out:
