Winter Wonderland

Sleigh bells riiiing, are ya listening? In the laaaane, snow is glistening-can you see the snow I made on this layout?

A beautiful siiiiight, we're happy toniiiiiight.... walking in the winter wonderland!!! I was a snowflake in this play when I was in 2nd grade : ) I have a soft spot for this song!

I started out making this 2 page layout for me but in the middle of the process I decided I'm going to surprise a friend of mine and give it to her!! So shhh!~ : )
Almost of all the cuts seen are from "A Child's year" Cricut cartridge.

The small snowflakes with the rhinestones and mini trees are MS punched. Fine glitter is MS too. The mom and child are embossed with houndstooth folder by Cuttlebug. The ice skate blades have Stickles on them to look slick and wet. The snow details on the page edges are brushed on with acrylic white paint. On the bottom edges I added Aleen's True Snow. If you have not used this yet-get some -it is the coolest stuff! I added it to their hoods as fluffy trim too!

The snowmen border came from Michael's as a 12 inch adhesive strip. Queen & Co-Felt Fusion.
I made the tree directly on the paper with white acrylic paint then added ultra fine glitter so it glistened a bit. The gold star is cut from The Joys of the Season cart.
The ribbon is sooo light and icy blue I had to embellish with it somewhere! Why not add another snowflake to it?
I wish you could feel the photo corners I made here. It is suede-ish ribbon. Soo smooth and cool feeling.
I love the trim on the title box. I had this trim for so long and it seemed perfect for this layout. Can you see the clear crystals dangling right over the word WALKING? Icy touch that won't melt!
Snowlady has glitter details that are barely visible-sorry for such poor lighting here-it's dusk already so I had to edit all levels and it does not do this justice but hope you can see. The little boy is holding a red heart up she has Lace Stickles on her apron! I tried to use real fabric but it covered up the pleat detail in the die cut so I opted for this instead.

I sure hope she likes the 2 page layout and maybe she can find some time to take outdoor snowy pics when it snows later on this year.

Let It Snow!

This snowman die cut is from the "Christmas Village" cartridge. He is ready for the big snow!
I am not!
