Hi Friends! The NEW Hugs & Kisses collection is out from SVG Cuts AND I have a new SVG Cuts layout to share with you. First, here is a look at the new collection. It is Valentine-themed and OH SO CUTE! This week, if you spend $9.98 or more in the SVG Cuts store you will receive this set as a FREE GIFT. CLICK HERE for more details.
My layout today features the ultra-adorable, and buff, Abominable Snowman from the Christmas Cuties collection. I just love this little guy and couldn’t wait to use him on a winter page. I pulled out these photos of my husband plowing our driveway last year, and got to work. Here is a look at the completed page.
OUR FAVORITE SNOW MAN
SVG Cuts Collections Used:
- Winter Bliss SVG Collection (winter forest background)
- Robin’s Return SVG Collection (notebook page)
- Christmas Cuties SVG Collection (abominable snowman)
- Hippity Hoppity SVG Collection (bunny)
- Christmas in the Village SVG Collection (snowflakes)
For complete instructions and cut sizes for this layout, be sure to visit THIS BLOG POST on the SVG Cuts blog. Let me show you how this page came together!
First, I began with the background. The soft red layer is cut at 11.5″ square and the teal paper is cut to 11.25″ square. Ink the edges and layer together.
For the winter scene in the background, I used the 12 x 12 “Trees” frame from the Winter Bliss SVG Collection. I used both the outside frame and inside “negative piece” of the cut. Here is a look at the complete cut before I trimmed it apart to create the scene.
I only used the bottom portion of the outer frame, cutting it as shown below.
Next, I cut the inner portion approximately 4″ from the bottom of the shape like this.
Here they are layered together and added to the page. Along the bottom edge of the page is a length of teal washi tape. This fills the gap at the bottom of the page, so that I could lift the scene a little higher on teh page and gives the figures something to stand on.
Next, I added the notebook page (from the Robin’s Return collection) and my main photo. I spelled out the title using letter stickers. The small kraft letter stickers are by BasicGrey, and the larger blue letters are an older letter sticker sheet by Bella Blvd.
Then I added the two smaller photos. I also added a tab sticker (Jenni Bowlin) and a word sticker (Tim Holtz), to the top left corner of the vertical photo.
It’s time to start adding our critters! The abominable snowman is from the Christmas Cuties collection, and the bunny is from the Hippity Hoppity collection. I used chalks to give them some dimension and then added black pearl stickers for their eyes. The bunny also gets an enamel dot nose and a twine bow.
Next, I added snowflakes cut from the Christmas in the Village set. I accented each snowflake with wood embellishments. These ones came from the September 2013 Citrus Twist Kit.
The final step was to add the journaling block and decorative brads. Here is one more look at the completed page with everything in place.
Thanks for stopping in today, and don’t forget to do a little shopping and pick up the cute NEW Hugs & Kisses SVG Collection as a free gift this week with your purchase of $9.98 or more.
