Beautiful & Bright Winter | Kelly Janes

Hey there friends! Kelly back with you again today to share a new winter themed layout using the Snow Day Background Cut File.

I started in Cricut Design Space by "slicing" one of the snowflakes from the cut file set. I then resized the snowflake multiple times and cut the snowflake images on white cardstock and vellum.

I then positioned those snowflakes on my layout using the patterned paper as a guide. Before adhering the snowflakes to the background, I added a little mixed media to the background. I wanted the snowflakes to have a lot of dimension so I only added a dot of adhesive in the center of the snowflakes to allow the edges of the snowflakes to curl naturally. I then added stitching around the circle using metallic silver thread. I tucked my photo into the snowflakes and added multiple winter themed embellishments around the page.

Now you can take a look at my YouTube process video.

Thank you all so much for spending part of your day with me and remember to head to The Cut Shoppe Etsy Store to check out all of the cut files! I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year!
