Simple Stories - Freezin' Season - All Bundled Up

Hello, Karen here again with another layout using  Freezin' Season from Simple Stories.

For my layout I choose three 3x4 photos of my daughter and matted them with Bazzill Flamingo Cardstock. I then trimmed a sheet of Bazzill Avalanche cardstock to approx 11"x11" and matted this onto a piece of the Shiverin' paper giving it a narrow border before sticking it to the middle of a 12x12 sheet of the Sweater Weather paper. Horizontal strips of the Shiverin' paper and Snuggle Up paper were glued to the lower half of the page.

My three photos were added to the centre of the layout on 3D foam, to add some dimension, and punched strips of white glitter cardstock were used to add a border to the central photo.

I machine stitched around the edge of the papers and also stitched vertical lines from the top of the layout onto the white cardstock. Snowflakes punched from glitter cardstock, sequins, pink Dew Drops and enamel stars from Shimelle's Glitter Girl collection were added. 

At the bottom of the layout I added my title using black puffy alphabet stickers.

I picked out one of penguins in the paper at the bottom of the layout and coloured his hat and scarf in the same colours as those worn by my daughter. A star puffy sticker was added to the top of his hat.

In my stash I found a penguin stamp which was remarkably similar to the penguins on the paper so I stamped him onto some white cardstock, fussy cut and coloured him and added him beside the title.  I could have instead fussy cut a penguin from one of the cut-apart sheets if I hadn't already used the paper for another layout!

The layout was finished with the addition of the date in the bottom corner using little letter stickers.

I'm really enjoying using this paper collection and you can find it and lots more in the Papermaze shop

Take Care,
