Snow Fun

Good morning!
Due to some family things I was unable to even look at let alone work with the last two kits!  But when I did open them man was I excited! A couple times a winter my family goes sledding at our local damn with friends - I have so many photos to scrap and seeing the Carta Bella papers and embellishments!

It is not very often I create double page layouts.....but I had so many photos from this sledding day that I decided to make a two page!

I used the kraft coloured cardstock as a base for the otehr wonderful colours to bounce off from

I created lots of layers using the cardstock, papers and stickers.  To add dimension I used foam dots.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I will be back to show a another layout is a few days!

Scrap Shotz Monthly Kit| December

Hello Scrap Shotz Friends!

Happy Holidays to you all, hope you have been having a wonderful holiday season! It has been quite mild for us here in Alberta but we're enjoying it while it lasts!

Rosie back to share another layout using the December Scrap Shotz kit, it's a great value at $35.95 packed full of product! I'll have a video later this week taking a closer look at the kit. 

In the meantime, I have created a layout based on this fabulous Creative Scrapbooker Magazine sketch:

We went to Lake Louise on a day trip last January, it was COLD and snowy, this kit was perfect for these photos. 

I don't often find myself in the photos so I took the opportunity to use one on this layout. I really like the circular aspect of the sketch and created the circle with a die cut and emphasized it with gold and silver cord. I followed the edge of a pot lid with liquid adhesive and then placed the cord on top of the glue.

I then added punched squares and circles, kit ephemera and punched snowflakes around the layout following the circle die cut and cord. All of these elements are adhered to one of the kit dotted patterned papers. The snowflake centres are embellished with Studio Katia clear drops and kit enamel dots.

Kit ephemera and chipboard also embellish the layout.

The kit alphas comprise the title and I've brushed a Wink of Stella clear glitter pen over the top to add sparkle.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look!

All Bundled Up| Scrap Shotz December Kit


Happy Boxing Day!

Rosie here to share my first project using the latest Scrap Shotz scrapbook kit. The kit features the lovely winter themed Carta Bella Let It Snow line.

I began this layout by inking the white card stock with MFT Snow Flurry stencil with Distress oxide inks in Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire. Various sizes of hexagons were die cut from  patterned papers, along with a couple of photos.

I also die cut one of the journal cards from the cut apart sheet. After arranging and adhering the die cuts pieces and photos, I cut the sticker border from the 12x12 sticker sheet and placed on the layout.

Then I added various stickers and chipboard, adhering some with foam adhesive to add dimension.

A few of the berry add-ons are tucked in behind the stickers and photo. For the final touch I glued the TH snowflake charms and embellished them with an enamel dot.

I will be back later this week with a closer look at the kit and more projects.

Thanks for stopping by!
