Baby, It’s Cold Outside – Let’s Capture These Sketches/The Paper Variety

The Paper Variety’s challenge this week is to create a paper based project inspired by a Christmas song title or lyrics. So I kept that in mind as I created this layout of my youngest son last winter in his first bunting. He hated that thing, but he was sooo cute in it! LOL I remember he kept looking at us accusingly, like he was thinking, “How COULD you”? The song, Baby It’s Cold Outside, kept popping in my head, so I’m hoping it counts though it’s not really a Christmas song. It’s a winter song that’s often played around Christmas?

This is my dt project for this week’s sketch by Charlotte at Let’s Capture These Sketches:

Wonder – dt work for Let’s Capture These Sketches

This is the layout I created for my dt work for Let’s Capture These Sketches. We got to work with a gorgeous sketch by Ness and I’m still LOVING the All About Me collection by Webster’s Pages, so I figured they’d be a perfect fit for what I had in mind. I replaced the frame from the sketch with two strips of bling (I took the All About Me dazzle me gems strip apart) and my journaling. Here’s what I came up with:


Webster’s Pages All About Me papers
WP All About Me trim
WP All About Me Dazzle Me gems
WP All About Me Storyteller Alphas
Prima Reflections Antique Mirrors
ZVA Creative flower


Helmar 450 Quick Dry
Helmar Quick Fix Adhesive Runner
Helmar Acid Free Glue
Helmar Clear Zap Dots
Helmar Gemstone Glue


Martha Stewart 3 in 1 butterfly punch
