Hello, bloggers! Today is the big reveal day over at Stuck on U Sketches with our newest design team members. Let me tell you .. there is plenty of inspiration there!
This fun Snow Day layout features my dgds Malerie and Maddison last winter. The photos of them are so cute I can't believe I haven't scrapped them sooner! I wanted to go with the colors light powder blue and deep red. I had some CM paper from a couple of years ago that were perfect. I trimmed them about a half inch so that I could add dark red cardstock behind it giving it a darker edge. For the background panel, I used one of my MS deep punches and inked the edges a bit. Then I cut a variety of snowflakes from several Cricut cartridges, A Child's Yeat, Joys of the Season and Chirstmas Noel. Those were popped with foam squares that were cut really small. I mean really, really small! Then I added Icicle Stickles and Diamond Dust to them.
I planned on doing a "scene" with some trees to place on the outer edges but after cutting them, changed my mind. I like the look of the pages better without them for some reason .. My title was cut with Winter Woodlands and matted. My little snowbird was from Home Decor.
Just a close up showing the green satin ribbon I used, some Prima flowers and bling to finish things off. I have to share that I don't really get an opportunity to do many snow layouts with us living in North Central Texas. When we get a snow, it's gone before you know it usually. However, these photos were taken in Oklahoma while the girls were away at school. I'm pleased with how my pages turned out even if I don't get much practice! LOL
Last page. Get a look at those snow filled trees!
I have to cut my post kind of short today. I had a late day at the office and a very long phone call after dinner. That's life .. but I love it!
I hope you get a chance to welcome our newest DT memebers at SOUS!
