It is another Snow Day here in Georgia – yep another one – this has been the winter for snow all over the US – I think everyone has had more than normal. The schools closed early – Tyler and Ryan are already home. Kyle is on his way – I hope he gets here safely with no road troubles. The streets in our neighborhood were already getting slushy a couple of hours ago. And the snow hasn’t stopped since about 8 this morning – it was mixed with rain in the beginning but not right now.
So in honor of another Snow Day I’ll share my SNOW DAY scrapbook layout with you!
We made this layout at my Scrapbook class last week. The snow flake is from the Season of Friendship stamp set and stamped in Very Vanilla Craft ink randomly on the background. The background is Chocolate Chip.
I used Bashful Blue Patterns Designer Series paper for the wide strip and for the scalloped strip on each page.
The Jumbo Snowflake punched was used to punch snowflakes for each page – 1 in Chocolate Chip, 1 in Very Vanilla, and one in Close to Cocoa. The title is cut on the Big Shot with the Simple Letters Alphabet Dies – these are Chocolate Chip and are also stamped with the snowflakes. The are attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop them up off the page. I added a piece of Bashful Blue and Very Vanilla Grosgrain ribbon on the ‘O’ and the ‘D’.
The fun part was the snowmen – I cut a piece of Close to Cocoa card stock with the Top Note Die and the Big Shot. On each I stamped the Snowmen from Holiday Lineup in Chocolate Chip Craft Ink and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder.
Then to make the snowmen “white” I used an aquapainter filled with Bleach! The bleach removes the color from the card stock and turns it into a vanilla color so they look like snow men. It was fun – you may need to go over them more than once to get the color that you want and make sure to use fresh bleach.
I plan to add pictures of the dogs – Aspen and Magnolia – playing in the snow when we had our last Snow Day – it was the light fluffy dry kind of snow. What we have today is wet snow. I hope you like the page – I really liked how it turned out.
Have a fun SNOW DAY!
