I live in Utah and as you may or may not know, it is the home of the “greatest snow on earth” which means we have a lot of ski resorts nearby. My scrapbook page today features a photo of the first time my son learned how to snowboard.
I love the versatility of all of the icons in this collection and was tickled pink to discover the snowboarding bear and the ski lifts! I die cut a few snow-capped mountains using my Silhouette Cameo 3 machine
for the background and then used black string to make the ski lifts appear as though they are taking you to the top for your next run!
The snowboarding bear is taking a break for some lunch and hot cocoa at the ski lodge at the bottom of the page.
Whether you have fun winter memories of skiing, snowboarding, sledding, playing in the snow, or just sipping a cup of hot cocoa the Sub Zero collection will make your project shine!

Thanks for coming by!
I love when a paper collection comes out that celebrates all things crafty! The new I’d Rather Be Crafting collection by Echo Park Paper
is so much fun! I’ve been wanting to add something fresh to my scrapbook room decor and decided to use this collection to create today’s project.
I used the Enamel Dots
to add dimension to each flower center and then also sprinkled among a couple of the embellishment clusters.
These turned out so cute! I have a small window sill in my office that these are going to look great on!
3D Letters Cut Files by Lori Whitlock
Several years ago, my mom decided that she wanted to create a family Christmas tradition for the grandchildren that would impress on them the meaning of the season. She spent hours sewing nativity costumes and writing a program so that each Christmas all of the children in our family could take part in our own family nativity play.
I’m so grateful for the memories we have made as we have had our family nativity each year! I was delighted to be able to use the Echo Park Paper Wise Men Still Seek Him collection
to document this important tradition of our yearly family Christmas party.
The photos of the Nativity play with everyone participating are stacked together on a block tied with some rustic jute twine.
I created my own journal block on the computer telling why this year was especially memorable for our family. I accented it with the floral branch sticker
along the bottom and a few punched stars.
The kids are growing up and starting to head off to college … in a few years, who is able to come to our family Christmas party is going to look a lot different. I’m grateful I captured this memory when I had the chance.
Wishing You a Very Merry Christmas!
Christmas is a time for traditions and today’s page features one of those for my kids … creating a candy train at school! I pulled out the “A Perfect Christmas” collection
to document this fun day for my daughter.
One of my favorite papers in this collection is the Merry Mistletoe paper
. I love florals that I can cut out and use as accents on my layouts. I used several on this page and then added die cut pine branches behind them for more texture and depth.
This fun embellishment cluster features my kids’ favorite part of Christmas … the presents! I added enamel dots
to the center of each bow for a bit of shine.
What school traditions have been carried through each child in your family? Do they deserve a spot in your memory book?
