Winter Days

What a beautiful snowy weekend.  Max couldn't wait to get outside to go sledding.  His friend came over and they played for quite some time!  I didn't make it outside to take any pictures, but I was inspired for my scrapbook page.  The kids have a few more days off school, so I'm sure I'll have plenty of time to get some pictures of the kids having fun in the snow.  

Supplies Needed:
Avonlea My Reflections paper packet
Exclusive Inks:  Slate and White Daisy
Juniper Exclusive Ink - Discontinued
Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge
Opposites Attract Cricut Cartridge
Card Stock: WhisperSlateSmokey Plum, and White Daisy
Embellishments:  Filigree Charms and "swirly pewter brad"
Glitz Glitter Gel

I also used my new Fiskar Interchangable Punch System for the "snowflake ribbon" that goes thru the middle of the page.  I chose random snow flakes to cover with White Daisy ink to bring focus to the snow flakes.

I chose one of the beautiful papers from the Avonlea paper packet to cut out the letters for my title and edged them with Slate ink.

When making my own background and Texture (B & T) paper on the bottom half of the layout, I used snowflakes.  Follow the rule of 3 when doing your random stamping.  I also chose to use Juniper ink on a few of the snowflakes to make them stand out.  

I also edged my paper in random spots and the corners with Slate ink.  

For my embellishments, I chose Filigree Charms and a "swirly pewter brad". 


I finished the layout off with 3 snowflakes from our Art Philosphy Cricut Collection. I added some Glitz Glitter Gel to make it BLING:)

I can't wait to get some fun pictures on this layout.  I've made 7 kits for our January club.  I hope they enjoy making it as much as I did!

Stay safe and warm in the cold weather.  I told my husband today..."Only 4 more months and we'll be mowing the lawn".  Yes, he looked at me like I was crazy, but hey, I have to have something to look forward to.  Think Spring!!!

Speaking of Spring....our new Spring Catalog will be coming soon.  The catalog will be available starting February 1st.  If there's anything left on your wishlist from our Fall 2012 catalog, get it now...only 32 days left to purchase.

Thanks for stopping by...happy scrapping!
