Trendy Tuesday – Weather Themes
by Katherine Elliot

While extreme and stormy weather makes news headlines, our thoughts and prayers go out to those affected by the severe forces of nature.  These are times we feel humbled by the dramatic force of nature rather than awestruck by its beauty.  At least the healing benefits of creative inspiration are not far away, and it”s no surprise that many of the latest paper crafts incorporate weather themes.  Today”s paper craft forecast is partly cloudy, but there are plenty of rays of sunshine in these talented artists” projects to inspire you.  Enjoy new stamp sets, products and embellishments to suit your fancy, too.

Sun and cloud shapes can be paired with many favorite sentiments, like the cheerful card Dawn Easton created below using a new stamp set from a brand new company, Reverse Confetti.

 Scrapping an every day moment is a fun way to celebrate life, even something as simple as the rainy day puddle play shown in Deb Duty”s scrapbook page. Trendy weather themed wood chip embellishments from Freckled Fawn are featured on this fun loving page.

Clouds in particular crop up in many projects as a signature weather theme shape.  Unique texture and patterns of cloud shapes make them particularly attractive in these projects featuring stamps and images from Unity Stamp Company and Stampin” Up!

Love this cloud paper from Simple Stories… Are these clouds cumulus, nimbus or what?  I don”t know which kind they are, but the colors and patterns on this paper could look splendid on many projects.

Last but not least, Lisa Johnson shares a wonderful uplifting card using many pretty weather shapes.  The sentiment she used comes from a stamp set she designed for My Favorite Things.  The sentiments coordinate beautifully with any type of project you have in mind to bring cheer to someone who may need a lift of spirits of simply feel under the weather.

I LOVE how you include lots of samples of various products, and also projects made using them. I’m sure it’s very time-consuming to gather all that information each week. Thank you sooooo much for sharing!!
