The beginning of 2023 was a bit rocky for me and for the first time in a long time, I felt myself sinking into the January BLAHS! Yuck! As I wondered to myself why this was happening, I realized that it had been several weeks since I had been in my craft room … I needed to get back to CREATING!
Playing with paper is my therapy! Instead of allowing the winter blues to take me over, I decided I would fight back. I printed some snowy photos, grabbed an older snow-themed collection from my stash, and got to work! I felt happier almost immediately! Yay!
SNOW FUN Layout
I used the 2016 Carta Bella Snow Fun collection for this layout of my son having lunch at a ski resort. My son and my husband often go snowboarding together in the wintertime. It’s their time to bond and I love that they have these special one-on-one memories together.
SUPPLIES USED: Cardstock (Carta Bella Paper) Patterned Paper, Stickers, Brads (‘Snow Fun’ collection by Carta Bella Paper), Letter Stickers (‘Buckaroo’ Thickers by American Crafts)
So, if you’ve been battling the winter blues … do yourself a favor and do something that brings you joy. Even if it’s a couple of hours of interrupted creative time in your craft room. I promise you will feel better afterwards.
This class combines all of my favorite things; scrapbooking, papercrafting, gift ideas, parties, holidays, and seasons! I poured my heart and soul into this project with the hope that it will inspire YOU to get creative, too!
