Scrappy Post: Snow Flakes!

Ok, I have to admit. I love snow pages!  Snowflakes are just as much fun on scrapbook pages as they are in real life.  Maybe it’s because I grew up in Louisiana and lived there exclusively until 4 years ago when we were transferred to the midwest. Obviously, I have been snowflake deprived for most of my life. 😉

Here is the color inspiration for my challenge at GCD Studios this month.  Yummy looking right?

Here is the page I created with snowflakes and that lovely color inspiration!

A few fun things to note:

I created the journaling tag from the back of one of the Great Outdoors packaging.  I just couldn’t resist using that mountain scene.

I painted one of the chipboard boarders from GCD Studios and wrapped it in red and white baker’s twine to bring in the red from the isnpiration.

I created the snowflakes to mimic the felt letters in the title.

I used the Slice to cut out the snowflakes and then applied glue with a glue pad and sprinkled it with Soft Flock fibers.  Once it was dry I set it with Super Seal.  I love that stuff. It’s a great way to make sure glitter and the like stay where you put it and not all over your scrapbook page.

A few close ups.

I’ve been meaning to share this little tip from my whole layout design process.  I confess, I am a consummate paper pusher, moving all the pieces around on a page until I get every piece exactly where I want it before I glue any piece down.  I found that occasionally, I forgot exacly where a little piece was before I took it apart and found that very frustrating. I now keep my phone handy to snap a quick photo of the layout before I take it apart to glue it and in this case, I decided to mist the cardstock in background.

Here’s another look.
