Aspen & All Decked Out

Hope everyone had a very merry Christmas and a wonderful new year! Welcome to 2009!

First, I have to say the inspiration for this layout came from Nancy Brown and Diane Fischer. Great layout, I just love it!!

This layout uses the Aspen Paper Packet with the Feathery Flakes stamp set, the All Decked Out stamp set and the Friendship Alphabet stamps. Colors are Twilight, Bamboo and Colonial White.

All the snowflakes are from the Feathery Flakes set and were heat embossed in our White Daisy Embossing Powder. The ribbon is from the Creme Brulee Designer Ribbon Rounds Collection. And the scallop edges were simply cut with a Fiskers scissor.

Oh and Stickles were used on the snowman's scarf and along the bottom of the snowman on the right page. There is also our Sparkles on there too and on some of the snowflakes. Always need a little bling!

The word "snow" has Liquid Applique across the tops of the letters to (hopefully!) look like snow. The Liquid Applique was heated with a craft heater and it puffs up like that. Works great for winter pages!

There are our Twilight Corduroy Brads from our Winter Cozy Mini Medely Accents on the snowman's earmuffs to keep him warm!

I also wanted to mention there was some paper piecing on this layout with the snowman's hat and scarf. On his hat on the left page, it was cut from our Aspen papers, but the band that goes across the hat, above the rim, was stamped on one of our different Aspen papers. That piece alone was just cut out and adhered on top of his hat. The same was done with the snowman's scarf on the right page. It was first stamped in the Twilight Aspen paper. Then the scarf was stamped again on Bamboo and all of those pieces were cut out separately and adhered to his scarf. That creates a very unique look!
