Hello everyone! I am sooo happy to be able to share my first Bitten by the Bug 2 challenge project of 2013. The design team has been on a two week holiday and I must say - the break seemed far too long to me!!! I missed our weekly challenges and I missed my design team sisters
For my project I chose to use colorful snowflakes on a white palette - a bit of a reversal on my normal snowflake ideas. I used three Cricut cartridges to create this fun two page layout: Art Philosophy, Winter Woodlands, and Everyday Paper Dolls.
I cut the large red snowflake and all of the smaller colored flakes (red, pink, green, and aqua snowflakes) with the Art Philosophy cartridge. The silver snowflakes were cut with the Winter Woodlands cartridge.
Using card stock that matched the colored snowflakes, I used this wonderful title cut from Winter Woodlands - "the magic of WINTER". I thought this title expressed the joy I feel when playing in the snow. I miss the days of snow skiing and sledding, ice skating on a frozen lake, or simply enjoying a cheery snowball fight! As cold and harsh as winter can be, it also affords us opportunities of joy we can experience in no other season.
I embellished my colorful Art Philosophy snowflakes with coordinting buttons. I also added a set of skis and ski poles to the layout using Everyday Paper Dolls. A few well placed gems and a scattering of silver snowflakes completed my layout!
Please do go by the Bitten by the Bug 2 blog - if you have not already done so - and check out the assortment of frosty snowflake projects the design team put together for you. We would love to have you join us in this first challenge of 2013. Simply create your project and add it under the snowflake post on BBTB2 using Mr. Linky. The rules for submission are on our sidebar so please do take a peek at those as well.
Thank you for stopping by today and letting me share my Magic of Winter layout with you!
