Fabrications layout "Snow Fun" by Stacey Michaud

I realize it is spring.  The weather has shifted and we have busted out our sundresses and tshirts.  But, I still have a slew of winter photos to scrap.  Shall I save them for another day?

Nope, I will scrap them regardless of the season.  I will go even further out of the box by using a non-traditional winter line for a snow themed project.

Fabrications with it's vibrant jewel tones meets white snow?  It works, especially when the subject of your layout is wearing a hat sporting the exact same hues.

To create this layout, I grabbed a sheet of white grid paper from the Sports Edition II collection.  It makes a great base.  I wanted to mimic the stripes of my daughter's hat so I began layering different patterns of Fabrications "Canvas" papers.  Don't worry about the strips all being the same width or length.  I added in the chipboard phrase to create some dimension.  Brads filled in the space and gave it some detailing.

To ground this middle cluster, I added the bright purple border on the side and the scalloped edge along the top.  It is a die-cut from the collection.  I added different sized circles to add some curve to the layout.  Then the fun part...the snow!  I used the new bling that accompanies each of the new collections.  The pearls come in three sizes!  I just randomly placed them along the top, creating snow!

The idea wasn't in my original plan, but evolved as I started working and dreaming.

Fabrications works for so many different themes, seasons and projects!
