I am in love with the colors of this collection! They are perfect for scrapbooking my son’s love of snowboarding. His jacket just happens to be a lime green … one of the amazing accent colors that makes working with these papers so much fun!
My main photo had a lot of white space around my son. I took advantage of that space by overlapping the left side of the picture with another embellishment scene using the adorable A-frame cabin and pine tree die cuts.
The “Up to Snow Good” arrow phrase
is so “punny” … I just couldn’t resist using it here! Ha ha! (Especially, since my son usually ditches school to go snowboarding … shhh!)
This snowboarding polar bear
looks like he has quite a fun personality! He is cool as can be and somebody I know I’d love to hang out with on the slopes! *wink*
Thanks for stopping by!
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!

Today’s page features photos I have of my kids and their cousins from the year 2009. They are grainy and not great at all in quality, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t still fun to see. (Wow! I can’t believe how little all my kids are!)
I think we sometimes hesitate to scrapbook photos like this (I know I do) … but that is when I am grateful for cute scrapbook products, like the American Crafts Sweater Weather collection I’ve used here. Instead of focusing on the fact that the picture quality is poor, the cute products “lift them up” a level making them cute again, reminding us that the MEMORY is what is most important in the long run.
At the top of the page I’ve used the snowflake patterned Twinkle paper. I then fussy-cut the flowers and labels from two other patterned papers (January Blossoms paper and Cozy paper). The black border is the branding strip from the Snuggles and Cocoa paper.
I added a couple of gold phrase stickers (American Crafts DIY Shop) to fill the labels. I like the way these repeat the other gold foil elements on the page.
In the right corner of the photo block I’ve used three circular snowflake die cuts. I fussy-cut more leaves from the January Blossoms paper to peek out from behind the gold foiled snowflake. That sweet little bird is from the Cardstock Stickers.
I placed black/white brads and buttons in the centers of each snowflake to repeat the black/white patterns going on around the page.
I didn’t want to take up a lot of room for a title on this page, so I used the “Today” die cut from the Ephemera pack. Below that is my journaling and fussy-cut pine trees from the Winter Wonderland paper.
See those adorable gold hearts to the left of the title? Those came on the Sweater Weather Joyous Thickers sheet! There are stars, too! I love when a letter sticker pack comes with extras that I can incorporate into the page design!
I hope you are having a great week! See you again soon!
