All that to say, I have a lot of snow pictures. And I finally got around to scrapping some of them. I used the CTMH Wonderland paper pack (now retired) for this fun layout. These pictures are probably my all-time favorite of Oslo. They totally capture his personality when he's in the snow :)
I used the Trinity Alphabet stamp set with White Daisy pigment ink for the title to mimic snow. I love the look of using pigment ink, especially for this, but I hate using it. It's so darn messy! But what won't we do to achieve the look in our head?! I had to stamp it a couple of times so it was thick enough. Thank goodness for CTMH's clear MyAcrylix stamps!
The half-doily strip of paper is the zip strip from one of the papers. All of CTMH's patterned paper has a 1/2" zip strip on it that makes a great border on your cards or scrapbook pages. Once you cut it off you are still left with a 12"x12" piece of paper.
These fun clear snowflakes are from the Top Coats Icing Overlays, which are—you guessed it—retired. They actually sold out quickly...they were a hot item! The blue snowflake is a dimensional element and I topped it with a shimmer brad and some silver glitz glitter gel.
The layout I used is called Performance from the Magic how-to book. Using this book made the layout come together SO quickly. I love how it includes cutting diagrams so you know what sizes to cut your paper. If you're looking for a way to create your scrapbook layouts quickly, I highly recommend this book. And you'd better act fast, because it's actually retiring! *sob* You can check out all the scrapbooking and cardmaking how-to books here.
