Hey, it’s Anna here. Just popping in to share my second layout this month using Photoplay Papers’ Frostival collection. I love this collection, it has all of your winter needs covered! I really like the colour scheme, which allows it to be used for other kinds of pages, compared to the traditional winter collections.
My last layout focused on the ‘snowy’ elements to the collection. You can see it here.
For this layout, I’ve gone with more of a Christmas/Winter Wonderland feel…
I used the outer heart shaped piece of navy cardstock that was leftover from my last layout. I trimmed it down by approximately 2cm to allow for a boarder. I then chose the ‘hot cocoa’ paper (as seen below) and trimmed each of the strips. I distressed the edges and inked them slightly. I then mounted them onto a sheet of white cardstock, (Coordinating cardstock shades can be found in the matchmaker pack) leaving a very small gap in between each strip. I adhered the navy heart cardstock on top and then hand stitched around the edge of the heart using white thread.
I mounted my photograph onto red cardstock from the matchmaker pack and the b side of ‘Warm & Cozy’. I then pulled out the ‘element stickers’ and chose a few pieces to use. I mounted the tag onto some Kraft cardstock and added some thread. I continued to add some stickers, forming a cluster around the photo.
I selected a title sticker from the Crate Paper Busy Sidewalks- Hustle & Bustle Phrase Stickers. I went for the phrase ‘winter wonderland’ and also added a few of the snowflakes.
To finish, I added some sequins and jems. To create a more natural look for these - I find it’s best to gently drop them onto the layout and adhere them roughly where they land.
Thanks so much for looking!
See you again soon with the absolutely gorgeous new Pebbles collection - Kid at Heart
