Let it Snow! Scrapbook Layout

Surprise!  Surprise!  I am still on track as far as my new scrapbooking plan goes.  I finished my second layout for our 2011 pictures this afternoon, so other than my Disney pictures - I am completely caught up!  Woohoo!  This is a beyond simple layout using the Winter Frolic cartridge along with the Imagine's pattern cartridge Mr. Frosty.  I think I am going to throw in some more simple layouts here and there to stay caught - I don't want to get burned out.

I designed this layout in my Gypsy, but then ended up using my Imagine to apply colors and patterns.  I'm not sure if this is the most efficient way to scrapbook, but I will say that it was a lot faster to just plug in the sizes into the Imagine.  I was able to avoid going back and forth between the mat preview screen and the sizing screens.  This entire layout used 4 1/2 sheets of white paper plus 2 sheets of kraft cardstock for the bases - that's pretty great! 

Materials Used:
  • (2) 12 x 12 pieces of kraft cardstock
  • 12 x 12 piece of patterned paper trimmed to 11 x 12, then 11 x 6
  • Photo Mats
    • (3) 4 3/4 x 3 3/4, 4 1/2 x 3 1/2 and 4 1/4 x 3 1/4 to fit a 4 x 3
    • (3) 3 3/4 x 3 3/4, 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 and 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 to fit a 3 x 3
  • (3) scalloped borders sized at 1" from Accent Essentials
  • (2) flourishes sized at 3.1"and 5" from Accent Essentials
  • Skating Girl sized at 4" from Winter Frolic
  • "Let it Snow" sized at 4" from Winter Frolic
  • Tag sized at 5" from Winter Frolic (journaling space trimmed to 2 1/2 x 3 - printed out from computer)
  • All Patterns from Imagine Mr. Frosty
  • Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Walnut Stain
  • Sakura Gelly Roll Pen - White
  • MS Crafts Permanent Pen - Chesnut
  • 3/8" Saddle Stitch Ribbon - Michael's

Happy Friday!  Hope you all have a great weekend and I will see you back here on Monday for another EAD blog hop!
