This is the winter layout that I was referring to in my earlier post. I had so much fun putting this together. Usually I have a tendency to scrapbook fairly symetrically, so this was a bit of a stretch for me, but I’m happy with how it turned out 🙂 ! The base of the page is Whisper White cardstock. The inside mat is Bashful Blue. I punched out some photo corners from my Wild Wasabi textured cardstock, using Stampin’ Up!’s photo corner punch (definately a must have!). If you click on the picture to get a larger view, you’ll see that each page has a scalloped strip of patterned paper – this, along with the striped paper I used for the circles, comes from the Winter Bright Simply Scrappin’ Kit (these kits are such a phenomenal deal – you can make at least 4 double page 12″ x 12″ layouts with ONE kit!). The snowflakes come from the Snowfall stamp set. I stamp 2 each in Bashful Blue (which I stamped off once to lighten the color), and Pretty in Pink. The centers are Stampin’ Up!’s gorgeous circle rhinestone brads from the Fire and Ice collections. The “w” comes from the On Board Simon Lower collection of chipboard. I inked it up in white craft ink then heat embossed it with iridescent ice EP. The remaining letters are the Quick Kutz Emily alphabet. You’ll notice a little strip of acetate. I used my Snow Wheel from the Holiday Mini Catalogue and inked it up in White Staz On, then wheeled it across a sheet of acetate. This is meant to be an overlay for a picture. In fact, the top right hand portion of the left-hand page is intended to hold a 5″ x 7″ picture, with the actetate overlaying the bottom 1/4 of the picture. The “film strip” was done using Stampin’ Up!’s spiral punch, and is intented to hold 4 pictures that are about 2 3/4″ x 2 3/4″. In that blank space on the top of the right-hand page, I would put a larger picture and tuck it under the “film strip”. I used 4 different kinds of ribbon on this page: Wild Wasabi double-stitched ribbon, narrow white organdy, pink tafetta, and blue gingham.
