PLS Pinterest Inspired: Snow Place Like Home

Tuesday, January 9, 2018

Morning, y'all!  I'm up on the Pretty Little Studio blog today, sharing a page inspired by the Pinterest photo below.  It made me think of warming up with a cup of hot cocoa after some good, ol' playtime in the snow.
I started this layout by adding puddles of blue and purple watercolor to the 12" x 12" watercolor paper, base page.  I then splattered it with those same, as well as bright pink, watercolors and Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints.
The "snow place LIKE home" title was created from a Snow & Hot Cocoa Die Cut, popped up with foam tape, and Cameo-cut, from Basic Black cardstock, words and letters over a shaker pocket, made from stitching a Home 3x4 Vellum Pocket Card over a piece of December Snow patterned print, cut to the same size, with silver-threaded, straight, machine stitches.  Before sealing off the stitching, I stuffed the pocket with Snow & Hot Cocoa Die-Cut hearts and a happy mix of Crystal, Seaspray, Primrose, and Falling Leaves Sequins from the shop.
It's bottom right corner was then dressed up with With Glee and Snow & Hot Cocoa Die Cuts, popped up with foam tape, and a hand-written, February 13, 2012, date.
Moving clockwise, I layered my daughter's photo, which was matted with white cardstock, over snippets of Trim the Tree, Snowy Night, and Starry Sky pattered prints, all secured with silver-threaded, straight, machine stitching, as well as a torn and folded sheet of Wishes Vellum.  It's left edge was embellished with a "hot cocoa" Snow & Hot Cocoa Die Cut, popped up with foam tape.
Another Home 3x4 Pocket Card fills the top left corner of the grid.  A For You Shipping Tag, laced with white string, tied in a bow, was tucked behind it...
and a couple of Snow & Hot Cocoa Die Cuts, popped up with foam tape, as well as a Cozy Home Flair Button, backed with a tangle of silver thread, and a Silver Metallic Label top it.  The label was used to house a simple sentence that tells the whole story.  It reads, All tuckered out from playing in the magical snow.
Winter Joy's Jolly print was used to create the Cameo-cut roof and window; and an "i love today" A Great Day Flag Sticker, backed with white cardstock, hand-cut out, and popped up with foam tape, top my oldest's photo, which was matted with more white cardstock and backed with snippets of Fir Trees and Birthday Cake patterned prints, anchored with the last of my silver-threaded, machine stitching.  A scattering of Believe Clear Acetate Sticker snowflakes completes the look.
Further inspiration for this page came from Scrap Our Stash's January Golden Globe Stash Challenge.
Thanks so much for humbling me with a visit!  Have a terrific Tuesday, friends!
