December is here and the holiday preparations are in full swing. Oddly enough, it is 55 degrees in New England. I am enjoying beautiful days, but I think I am ready for some snow.
We have had only one snowfall so far and my kiddos couldn't put their boots and snowpants on quick enough.
They love it and I love to scrap snow pictures. Especially when there is a great collection that allows you to tell the story.
Christmas Cottage became that collection for me. Yes, a Christmas collection that is also perfect for winter photos.
I grabbed all the snowflake papers, references or motifs I could find and got to work. I created the cluster along the top to ground my title and add some detail. I layered die-cuts and chipboard, finishing it off with some stickers.
I placed my photos on the rich green to make them pop. They contain a lot of white due to the snow in the background. Putting them against the green makes them stand out. I made a little banner to the right.
See my snowflakes? They are from a sheet of paper...I simply cut around the edges to make different sized flakes. I added centers such as the buttons and faceted rhinestone pearls. I love the dimension they give the layout.
Snow or not, this collection is awesome for creating festive winter layouts!
