Christmas Hugs - Scrap Attack Scrapbooking
I got to play with the "Snow Day" collection by Crate Paper in my DT kit this month from Scrap Attack Scrapbooking. This is a collection that I passed by at my LSS. I really liked it, but I guess something else caught my attention, and I forgot about it. (If the ladies at the LSS show me something shiny I get distracted - I'm a bit of a magpie.) At any rate, once I started working with it, I realized just how versatile it is. I easily created 6 layouts (both 'boy' and 'girl', Christmas and just winter), and I'm sure I could find more pictures that work with it. The back sides of this collection are more generic patterns, making your left overs perfect for non-themed pages. Ha - have I gushed enough today? I really did love this collection.
There are a lot of fun word/phrase stickers on the sticker sheet, and I found it very easy to choose ones appropriate for my pages. The tree in this picture was fussy cut from one of the papers. The 'star' at the top is a Prima flower centre.
The cardstock is Bo Bunny double dot, which takes mists beautifully. I used Glimmer Mist (in Pashmina and Starfish) with Glimmer Screens to create the background.
I used a corner punch on scraps, creating a bunch of small motifs that were easy to tuck under the edge of the other papers. I added Distress Stickles (in "Picket Fence") to a lot of the paper edges. It's a great colour for seasonal pages, as the white stickles look like snow without being too glittery.
The sticker sheet included not only words and phrases, but also several journal spots, giving lots of options for recording memories.
