Winter Wonderland using Spellbinders
I have news to share - I did not make the cut on round two of tryouts for the Spellbinders team. I was disappointed, but I know that their team is highly competitive. The good news is that I may now show my projects with you!
My entry for round one was this 12 x 12 inch layout. I used two colored sheets of cardstock topped with snowflake printed paper. The snowflake print made a lovely, low-key background on which to build the layout elements. The first element I added was a Stampin' Up stamp which reads "Winter Wonderland" stamped on my snowflake print.
I used my Grand Calibur with grand label one to cut the two layer matting and the main photo. I used nesties label one to cut the mats and the smaller photo. I also used snowflakes number one and cut red and blue embellishment snowflakes. The snowflakes were topped with red buttons tied with white embroidery floss.
My page border was created using a Spellbinders lacey border cut four times. I mitered the corners and topped the corners with snowflakes or tags. The WINTER tag at the bottom left was created using label 14 and a stamp. I penned in the date at the bottom of the label.
I will admit that I was a disappointed at not making the cut, but really it was fun to try out. And I was able to get this great photo scrapped!!
Remember that I have blog candy up for grabs in the previous post. A winner will be drawn a Thursday.
