Let it Snow – dt layout for Creative Embellishments

Well, it’s a brand new month, so that means there’s a new challenge up at Creative Embellishments! 😀 This month, if you’d like to play along, you’ll be combining an inspiration image with a sketch. Use the image any way you’re inspired, whether it’s the colors, the snow, part of the imagery, etc. Here’s what I came up with for my example:

Let it Snow

Materials:

Creative Embellishments Snowflake Frame
CE Icicle Border
CE Let it Snow title piece
American Crafts white cardstock

Tattered Angels glimmer mist

Gotta Let Go – layout for sketchabilities sketch #102

Sketchabilities sketch #102 is now live! Karan’s new sketches have been fantastic to work with and so much fun! They’re wonderfully inspiring no matter what your scrapping style happens to be. They work beautifully for anything from CAS to mixed media and everything in between. 😀

When I looked at the circle elements on the sketch, I immediately thought of the wonderful chipboard circle panel that Nicolle recently sent me from Creative Embellishments and a FABULOUS steampunk hot air balloon stamp (I got to test out the prototype, so keep your eyes out for rubber stamps to be a new product added to their store!). Since I recently created a layout that featured smaller photos clipped to twine using mini clothespins, I decided to replace that feature on the sketch with a washi banner and add my title to it.

The photo on this layout features my son, Matthew. One of his favorite songs at the moment is TNT by Taio Cruz (some people know the song as Dynamite), so I used some of the lyrics from the song for the title and “journaling”. Here’s what I came up with:

Gotta Let Go

Here’s a close up of the hot air balloon. I heat embossed the stamped image using Lindy’s Stamp Gang embossing powder:

This close up shows the circle panel that I snipped bits off of and used in a few spots on my page. I heat embossed the panel pieces to match the hot air balloon stamp:
