It's December! Which means, Christmas crafting! I pulled out an older photo of my son, Elliott, today to get in the winter-y mood. (It's still about 70 degrees here in San Antonio so I am grasping at that winter feeling I will clearly not experience in Texas.)
Anyway, I used the Snow Day cut file from The Cut Shoppe today to create this winter wonderland of a layout.
I deleted all but one of the snowflakes on this cut file, and then enlarged it to 11.5". I cut the large snowflake on textured white cardstock and then spent a grueling 2.5 hours stitching around it with white embroidery thread.
I knew I wanted a white background and loved the white snowflake against the white...but it needed more color. So I used the same single snowflake and cut out three snowflakes measuring between 5"-5.75". I cut them out from a few papers from the Falala 6x6 paper pad.
The red snowflake I cut apart so I could use it it three places around the page. I also cut the gold glitter snowflake included in the Falala ephemera pack in half so I could use it in two places on the page too.
I thought it would be cute to "hang" my photo from the large snowflake. So I found a couple more banners from the Falala collection and hung them from other snowflakes around the page. I accomplished this by taping some bakers twine right on the back.
I finished off the page with some additional embellishments and some gold Heidi Swapp color shine.
Thanks for stopping by!
