Hi friends! Dana here today sharing a winter themed scrapbook layout. I used the Simple Stories Feelin' Frosty Sampler Kit to take the opportunity to document this photo of my nephews snowboarding. They definitely love being on the snowy mountains of Colorado.
I stuck with a green, blue, and white color palette. The selection of die-cuts in the kit is absolutely fantastic and I was able to create some layers under and on top of my photo quickly. The frosty tree die-cuts were the perfect way to embellish the edge of my photo which sported a landscape of snow-covered pines.
I used this super cute moose die-cut as a simple title spot. The package of enamel dots was a great way to add a bit of dimension to the area. The small pink dot highlights a pink cheek perfectly.
As soon as I saw the package of Avalanche Sparkletz from Buttons Galore in the kit I knew I wanted to add a shaker embellishment to the page. This chipboard snowflake shaker is from my stash, but a similar shaker can be created with a digital cut file, some acetate, and adhesive foam. I used two shades of acrylic paint and some Snow-Tex medium to color this interactive element. The iridescent gems and sequins are to perfect amount of sparkle for this masculine layout.
I embellished the top edge of the page with more die-cuts for a pop of color. There are so many to choose from!

Hey y'all! I hope January is treating you well! I'm just gonna be honest, I don't do well with the cold so I've been hunkered down under a heating blanket with ice cold hands in my spare time but...I did manage to pull myself out of the warm blanket to get some creative time in and boy am I glad I had such a beautiful kit to work with to do it!
For this project I worked with the Limited Edition Artist Series Gustav Klimt Kit.
The artist series is a new series featuring mixed media supplies in a kit inspired by an iconic artist. This kit features Gustav Klimt, Austrian art nouveau symbolist painter famous for romantic portraits of women with lots of gold. It was packed with so many wonderful supplies, this was the second project I've made with it and I have plenty more to continue creating with!
I started out making these simple but elegant cards. Using pallet knife, I swiped a bit of the TCW copper stencil butter on to the cards and allowed it to dry fully. Next I cut some of the beautiful pattered paper in the kit. It was super easy since the paper was very graphic and this particular one had a tile/square pattern, I just cut two squares per card, inked the edges with a black ink pad and placed them in the middle of each card. I then selected a quote from the Dina Wakley Collage words (included in the Art Journaling Starter Kit) and stitched them with my sewing machine on to the cards. You can add extra adhesive if you wish but that's all I used. See, super easy!
Tie a few of them together with a silk ribbon and one of the die cut tags from the kit and it makes the perfect gift set! But I couldn't stop there! I wanted a sweet little journal to add to this gift so I dug back into my kit.
Using some old corrugated cardboard as my cover, I added to it by adhering one of the acetate frames and then a cut out of one of the ladies from the pattered paper. You could just one of the die cuts here but I couldn't find one the right scale for what I was looking for. Then I selected the quote from the Dina Wakley Collage words (included in the Art Journaling Starter Kit) and this time I used Mod Podge to adhere it on to the cover. I used various pieces of the pattered papers for my inside pages, as well as scraps of other vintage papers, acetate and other bits and pieces as my pages. I bound it all with some binder rings. I wanted a fun embellishment to give it some pop so I painted and assembled the star shaker box tag by Krea and filled it with the fun Doha sequin shaker mix. Finally I finished it off by tying it together with the matching silk ribbon & twine I used to bind the card set together.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you were inspired to create something beautiful today!
