Paper Sweeties October Release Party

Tuesday, October 14, 2014

It's day three of Paper Sweeties' October Release, friends, and I'm so happy you popped in for a visit!  I promised to share another page today, and this one boasts both our new Snow Friends and Joy dies amidst a heap of other oldies but goodies.  Enjoy!
I started this page by stamping the snowflake, base page, in Pool Party ink, with the subtle snowflake images; layering a number of color-coordinating, patterned papers, including a bit of polka dot vellum, near center; anchoring a number of those papers with white-threaded, straight, machine stitches; and topping everything with my photos, which were matted with Whisper White cardstock.  My "WINTER MEMORIES" title was created from white alphas and aqua, glitter letters and embellished with a simple, die-cut, from Riding Hood Red cardstock, "Joy" sentiment.
In moving clockwise, a tag, laced with Baker's Twine, tied in a bow, was tucked under the photos' right side.
A number of word stickers, one of which was dressed up with a hint of shimmer and shine and including a couple of labels, along with the base page itself, stamped, in Jet Black ink, with Sweeties' phrases, round out the bottom left corner.
I then stamped the snowman and his winter gear, snowballs, and sled, in Jet Black ink, on White cardstock.  The snowman and his ensemble were die-cut; paper-pieced with a turquoise, polka dot, patterned paper; and glittered; and both the sled, which was colored with pencils, and stack of snowballs were hand cut out.
Finally, I tucked a "you are loved" journaling circle just behind the previous cluster and topped it with a "DATE:" 02/08/14 label to complete the look.
Further inspiration for this page came from Creative Scrappers' Sketch #279.
Thanks, as always, for stopping by my little corner of the web!  Before you're off to all that's keeping you running today, please be sure to stop by the Design Team's blogs to check out all the inspirational projects they've worked so hard to create.  Then, we'd love to have you join us tomorrow for one final day of the Paper Sweeties October Release.  Be blessed!
