Baby, It's Cold Outside


Coincidentally, while we were enjoying the gorgeous Christmas Day snowfall yesterday, I was digging into my stash for this layout about our unusually cold December.  After my parents had gone home and the dishes were done (finally!), I got in some scrapping time.  Two unexpected treats for the holiday!


Project Notes:

  • The layout is based on Artfuldelight's monthly challenge
    ( December Sketch Challenge at Artfuldelight.blogspot.com ).  For the shaped background, I did two Cricut cuts.  The second one in the lighter teal accidentally came out the same size as the first so I decreased the size and moved the cutting blade in and down just a tad - maybe a quarter of an inch - and cut again.  I got a perfect frame!  Just lucky on that one.
  • Rhinestones in the center of snowflakes add a special zing.
  • Also, vellum seems to really go with snow/cold themes, too.

Now that I have dozens of wonderful Christmas snow photos, I'll have to do another snowy layout for my very first white Christmas!

Thanks for visiting today.  Enjoy your holiday week.

Ingredients:  DSP:  background DCWV; teal papers from My Mind's Eye
Ribbon:  Enchanted Cottage in Winston-Salem, NC
Rhinestones:  Hobby Lobby
Chipboard:  American Crafts; "L" from Holly Jolly by Cosmo Cricket
Fonts:  Andy, Times Roman, Lucida Handwriting
