Hello, crafty people! Up on the blog today are January design team projects for The Scrapbooking Studio in Bloomington. I had fun working with BoBunny Powder Mountain (click the link to see all the products).
I had this really great photo of Jim and the girls from a 2007 ski trip. That was my first AND LAST time on snow skis, so there were no pics of me on the skis, I couldn't even navigate the bunny hill! Seriously! And I consider myself pretty coordinated and athletic...HA!
This is what was done to create the layout, a modified version of Amarylis Doria's "ScrapThat!" January sketch.Maya Road Kraft Snowflakes were layered with patterned paper cut with the Tim Holtz Snowflake Rosette die. A little tip if you are using the snowflake die with this paper: cover the back of the paper with tissue tape before cutting! It will hold the die-cut together much better!
The base mats were layered, inked and distressed with a distressing tool, then rolled a little to get the effect I wanted.
The title block was cut with a Mini 8 Vine punch. I love how the title really looks stitched!
A close-up of the snowflakes and layering below the photo mat. A long, chipboard sticker element topped off the anchoring layers
The complimentary layout used the cut-apart negatives of the first layout to frame the top, along with a border strip from one of the papers. That ski lodge paper was fabulous - had to use it, even though there was not a picture! :)
Some of the Chipboard snowflakes and a flourish...
The "directional" pole from Noteworthy was popped up with foam tape. The journaling block was part of the base layer. A tag from Noteworthy with a snowflake button added a little pizzazz!
The skiing snowman birthday card...great for a winter birthday!
The sentiment was stamped with black ink, then embossed with clear embossing powder. The snowman and snow flakes are chipboard stickers. The skis are from Noteworthy. The 'snow' was hand cut and embossed with a dots embossing folder.
My altered project this month is a winter home decor piece. The 'hanger' is two pieces of glitter ribbon taped together. A Tim Holtz chain tassel holds a "blinged up''snowflake button. The topper was cut from patterned paper with the Sizzix Fancy Square Frame die. The piece is one side of the frame.The altered frame was dry brushed with white acrylic paint, then tapped with a Gathered Twigs Distress Ink pad. Patterned paper lined the back of each window.
Bling was added to all the snowflakes. "Snow" was added to the window sills, title and topper to make it really feel like winter!
The little snowmen were Maya Road trinket pins altered for this project. Some of the snow is visible in this photo.
