Designer Grace Tolman
utilized the adorable
Simple Stories "Freezin Season" Page Kit
included in the
combined with this month's sketch to create the super fun winter layout below
"Hello Winter"
"This page is my take on this month’s sketch. I didn’t have a 4x6 photo so I just placed my 3x4 on the top along with a 4x4 cut out from one of the papers. This block worked as my title block. I added some glitter on the word “winter” using some glimmer pen from my stash. I just love how this little touch added some shine to an otherwise flat element.
The 12x12 sticker sheet that came with the mini kit was chock full of fun embellishments and I used a lot of them in this page. I added some of them with foam adhesive to give my page layers and dimension.
I used a pink cardstock from my stash so that the photos can stand out against the busy background. I chose that specific color because it was in one of the pattern papers. Pulling out colors from the pattern papers will ensure that your cardstock choices match well with the rest of the papers."
Personal stash items used:
Date stamp (Studio Calico); Ink (Black, My Favorite Things); Border punch (Fiskars); Pink Cardstock (DCWV); Glitter pen (Tonic Studios)
