Scraps of thoughts, photos and art


of a layout is what you’ll see today! The challenge was to use no patterned paper and ric rac. Hmmmm, yes, that IS a challenge, no patterned paper???

I rose to the occasion and used some cool Prism textured paper from my stash that I really LOVE. Seriously it’s too bad Prism closed their doors. Anyway, it was the perfect backdrop for the snowy pictures I had for this page. I can’t show you the whole thing, but the part I will show you is a fun part of the page.

I die cut the letters from foam using my Big Shot Express – yes, it’s the electric one – that I totally love. I covered them with Ranger Stickles Icicles which is basically the chunky glitter glue ones. The snowflakes in the background are from using a Heidi Swapp mask and DTP white ink – another neat look for snow. And a new border punch that could double as flowers or snowflakes.

Trust me in that the ric rac is at the bottom of the page – 3 strands of it actually – attached with staples. 🙂
