Weekly Warm-Up: Bring on the Snow!

There’s that chill in the air, a coldness seeping through the valley here at Creating Keepsakes, reminding me of hot chocolate, pumpkin mochas, and cozy nights by the fireplace. This is my favorite time of year. I love watching the leaves turn to golden, auburn colors and hearing their crunch as I march through them throughout my day. It won’t be long now until we get some good snow! And with it will come all the amazing benefits snow brings: snowboarding, sledding, making snowmen, snowball fights, and teaching the youngsters to make snow angels. Oh yes, I love the snow!

But don’t worry; even if you aren’t a big snow fan, we’ve got ways to enjoy it without risking frostbite. Check out this scrapbook layout below by Cindy Tobey. She’s come up with a fun way to recreate the look of snow, as seen on page 60 of the November/December 2010 issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine.

More Snow Please by Cindy Tobey. Supplies: Cardstock:  Bazzill Paper; Patterned paper: Anna Griffin, Cosmo Cricket, Li’l Davis Designs, Making Memories, and Pink Paislee; Glitter paper: Die Cuts with a View; Stickers: Cloud 9 Design; Die cut: Little Yellow Bicycle; Journaling strip: Martha Stewart Crafts; Chipboard: BasicGrey; Ribbon: Pebbles; Rhinestones: Advantus, BasicGrey, Kaisercraft, and Little Yellow Bicycle; Punch: EK Success; Paint: Making Memories; Font: Cambria; Adhesive: Glue Dots International, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, and Tombow. 

She’s captured the feeling with the added help of a bright sparkly snowflake. Make this dazzling snowflake for your own scrapbook layouts! Here’s how:

Twist leaf stems together at opposing ends.

Stitch to layout. Add hand-cut or punched paper leaves.

Embellish using rhinestones.

What a fun way to get in the mood for cooler weather. Stay warm, and have fun playing with snowflakes!

Have a great week everyone!
