American Crafts: Throwing It Back to Christmas

I’m throwing it back to the Christmas season today with one more page created with the American Crafts Sweater Weather collection.  I had lots of fun with punched snowflakes on this one!

I love creating title with multiple sets of letter stickers. On this one I used the gold Joyous Thickers, blue Maggie Thickers, and some old red tile letter stickers by Adornit. I added some fussy cut flowers from the January Blossoms paper and a die cut pair of mittens, that look as thought it is hanging off of the title!

I put my snowflake punches to work on this page, creating a cascade of them down the center of the page. I placed a black gem in the center of each one for some sparkle and shine.

I also mixed in a bit of Dollar Tree gold holographic tape on this page for a fun border. I wanted a bit more of it at the bottom of the page, so I placed a length of tape on a scrap of white cardstock and punched it with a scalloped border punch to underscore the cluster of winter wear die cuts.

This was a really fun page to create! Have you given your punches a work out lately?

Scrapbook Pages: Enjoy and First Snow

Happy Tuesday, Scrappy Friends!

I mentioned last week that I’ve been working with the winter collections in my stash lately and have a couple more pages to share with you today!

For this first page I used the Carta Bella Paper Cabin Fever collection and a March 2018 PageMap sketch by Becky Fleck.

ENJOY

How cute is that sweater-inspired patterned paper (Silly Snowmen Paper) in the background?! I couldn’t resist using that one!

I loved the wood pattern included on some of the elements and decided to continue that on the page with a wood veneer title pulled from my stash. I used one of the frame pieces (Frames & Tags Ephemera) backed with 6×6 patterned paper to anchor the wood word on. Below it I placed the chipboard “All Bundled Up” banner piece.

A kraft colored envelope from my stash is a fun, textural home for my printed journal strips!

In the bottom left corner, you find a friendly snowman from the Cabin Fever Chipboard stickers waving a happy hello!

This second page features the Echo Park Paper A Perfect Winter collection. I loved working with this collection!

FIRST SNOW

I love this red and blue plaid shirt that my son is wearing in the photo … because it coordinates perfectly with the plaid paper (Snowflake Flurry Paper) from this collection! Awesome, right?! *wink*

I dipped into my stash to create the title for this page using some older Marquise Thickers and my stamps (SHOCKER!!!!).

I wanted navy tile letter stickers for the word “First,” but couldn’t find any in my stash, so I decided to create my own! I used some letter stamps (I believe these ones are by Studio Calico) and white embossing powder on navy cardstock. It worked like a charm!

(Whenever I do something like this … I always think to myself, “Why don’t I do this more often?!” It was easy and gave me exactly what I wanted. Plus, it took no time at all!)

The gray cardstock border across the top of this page gets special treatment with a bit of debossing using a Snowflake Border embossing folder by Darice. I also added a glittery, silver pinked border below the red paper strip.

I’ve been using these snowflake die cuts from my stash on a lot of pages this week … and I still love them! Sometimes I get sick of using something after a few times and pass it along to a friend, but I am digging the size and shape of these. I will definitely hang on to them for more winter pages. 🙂

If you’d like to recreate the look of those large snowflakes, but don’t have any in your stash, you could also use a manual or electronic die cutting machine to create some!

Finally, to anchor this design, I created a little winter scene at the bottom using the Element Sticker sheet. Such a cute little penguin fellow! (I always gravitate towards the critters … have you noticed?! *wink*)

Scrapbook Page: Snow Joy

I’ve been making a focused effort on getting a few winter pages finished lately and wanted to share them with you over the next week.

For today’s page, I used one of the March 2018 PageMaps sketches by Becky Fleck, along with the Echo Park Paper A Perfect Winter collection.

SNOW JOY

My husband always sends me random snapshots when he is with my son snowboarding at the ski resort. While these are the prettiest of shots … I hope that by scrapbooking them they will serve as memory joggers of the fun times my husband and son had together when they look at these pages in the future. 🙂

I love new supplies and I love older items in my stash … and I love when I can mix the two together! I have these large, glittery snowflake die cuts (an oldie from the Pebbles Winter Wonderland collection from a few years ago) that I was able to incorporate into the winter pages I created. If you don’t have these, or can’t find them for sale, you could always create your own using a large snowflake die or an electronic cutting machine.

I love how they look here peeking out from behind the main photo!

While I was looking through my “Winter & Christmas” themed items in my stash, I came across this acrylic “JOY” word by Freckled Fawn. I thought it would be fun to place on top of the photo where there was a lot of empty blue sky.

Next, I handcut the polar bear from the 4×6 Journaling Cards paper to add to the bottom of the page. He is anchored by a phrase die cut (from the Frames & Tags Ephemera Pack) and a friendly, little bird sticker (Element Stickers).

It seems like most of my winter memories focus on the holidays, so it feels good to play with a winter theme for a change. Do you have some winter photos hanging out just waiting to be scrapbooked?

Carta Bella Paper: I Love Winter

Today I’m playing with the Carta Bella Paper Cabin Fever collection and a January 2018 sketch at PageMaps.com. I LOVE working with sketches! And Becky’s sketches are some of my very favorites! I love the way she combines layers and shapes … it always inspires me!

I used the “I Heart Winter” banner sticker for my title and then nestled a little cabin scene on top with the chipboard and sticker pieces. A sprinkling of enamel dots are a little bit like snow here.

This cute bear is ready to go sledding with his friends! He looks quite dapper in his winter scarf!

This collection makes me want to find a cozy, winter cabin that I can snuggle up in for the weekend drinking hot cocoa while reading a book by a crackling fireplace!

Have a great weekend!
