So excited to be a part of this month's Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop. If you haven't checked out the Scrapbooking Global Facebook page it is a must. It is an awesome facebook page dedicated to super inspirational scrapbook pages featuring 100% Stampin' Up! products. One of the best things about scrapbooking is you use your products. I know in the beginning when we started our crafty collection, we were hesitant to use our products, hoarding them away. Well it is safe to say after over 16 years of buying and creating, USE YOUR PRODUCTS. You will buy more, new trends appear and you will never use the products that are now collecting dusts on your shelves.
I don't think I can ever use up all the things I own, so every month I look forward to the blog hop because it gives me a reason to use paper, embellishments and my stamps to make scrapbook pages. Cards come and go, but my scrapbook pages I get to hold on to and pass on to my nieces and nephews.
So this month's Scrapbooking Global blog hop theme is Winter Textures. I had fun coming up with different textures to add to the page. Different mediums, different embellishments and textures.
So first I will start with the paper, I used the Festive Farmhouse and the retired Project Life Seasonal Snapshot cards. I also used the Project Life Seasonal Snapshot Accessory Pack which came with stickers which I spelled out Winter Wonderland and washi tape.
I made the white felt snowflake by die cut the felt with the retired Festive Flurry thinlits and putting a button in the center and some Linen thread. I stamped the Oh what fun with the Christmas Messages stamp set and the die cut it with the Stitched Shaped thinlits.
The ice skates come from the retired Winter Wishes stamp set and were attached with black baker's twine and tied with a bow and put on snowflake die cut from the Seasonal Layers thinlits.
The finishing touches were Sleigh Bells Ribbon, Santa's Workshop elements (little Christmas trees), and Festive Farmhouse elements (word Merry). For an added texture, I cut a strip of coffee cup holder for some corrugated cardboard look.
