Embrace the snow!

Hi Everyone!

Sharon here today to share some winter pages that I just made this past month. 

If you live in North America anywhere near the north-east, you have probably been getting a snow, ice, and freezing rain -  filled winter like we have here in Pennsylvania.   Even the southern states were not spared this winter.  In trying to keep a positive attitude throughout all of this, I attempted to embrace the snow instead of disliking it.  I did it by doing two things that I love to do:  taking lots of photos and scrapping them!

Here are 3 pages that I created using snow filled photos:

To make these pages, I decided to use only things from my stash.  I had beautiful Anne Griffin papers:

and the Prima "Lyric" papers:

I love these collections and both are perfect for my snow photos.  

Next I found some old punches:

and even dusted off my Cricut Expression:

I used one of the cartridges that came with it:

to make the large snowflakes:

Then I added some stamping, inking, and white paint.

and some Stickles for added sparkle:

My Karen Foster star-bursts were calling out to be used:

and some beautiful ScrapFx chipboard pieces:

I ended with a little machine stitching and distressing to finish off the look:

I really had fun using some old stuff from my stash that I had not gotten out in a long time!  

That's it for today . . . my way of embracing this snowy season. 

Thanks so  much for stopping by!

  1. Absolutely beautiful! We have our annual snow trip coming up in March and I can't wait! (That must seem weird to those who live with snow!)

  2. Such amazingly beautiful pages! They do make me like the snow. But just on your pages! Had enough of the stuff outside! LOL

  3. I totally agree with Scrappycath - enough already!! We haven't had too much snow (compared to other years) but I've really had it with the cold which I've always detested.... when it freezes it over it does make beautiful pictures - Enjoy your posts and positive attitude in trying to find the good side of winter ! If lucky, the ice and snow will be melted by July!!! LOL!!

  4. What beautiful layouts. I love the colour palette used and how pretty the layouts are. It's amazing to see the amount of snow you have as we only see it on the mountain normally or if it's really bold we might get it on the hilltops but not around our house. I can't begin to imagine how difficult it must be when you have it in your drive and on all the roads.
