Hey crafty friends! Thank you for joining me today as I share my snowman themed scrapbook layout that I just finished creating. While I always could use more scrapbook time so far I’m getting more than last year so wooohoo!!
I’m still working on using up the old My Mind’s Eye Winter Wonderland collection. It’s actually all finished, well as much as I’m gonna make it, but I still have a layout or two left from it to share with you. I had some paper left, but there were no more usable embellishments so the rest went in my daughters play bin.
I started this layout with the above sketch from Paper Issues and the current challenge over at Scrap Our Stash. I think you can see the sketch in my layout easily as I stuck really close to it. For the Scrap Our Stash challenge you had to use three or more types of alphas. When I first set out to use do this challenge I had it in the back of my mind that I’d never be able to do it. I always feel like I can’t mix my alphabets well, but this time it just came together easily. On this layout I even managed to use four kinds of alphas and the dots are from a completely different set.
I have always loved the look of stitching on layouts, but it’s something I have never been able to master that skill. Instead I bought a stitching stamp set, and pulled it out for the first time on this layout. I love the way it looks. I just need to get a longer block so I don’t have to repeat stamp and have it look wonky.
Honestly, I think that’s it for now guys. I hate to ramble anymore. I’m in the middle of another layout so I hope to be back with something new to share soon. Until next time…stay crafty!
