Let it Snow Scrapbook Layout

Hi there, Connie Nichol here today with a scrapbook layout featuring two of the stamps from the Let it Snow Snowman stamp set from Quietfire Design.

I stamped the largest snowflake in the set repeatedly on a strip of cardsotck and coloured them in with markers to create a customized colour coordinated border.  I added a bit of Stickles glitter glue at the end to give the snowflakes a little sparkle.

I created the page title by stamping 'let it snow' on a circular piece of watercolour paper, colouring in the letters with a blue Tombow watercolour marker and then brushing a wet paintbrush over the letters to spread the colour a bit.  After the paper dried, I coloured the letters in again to make them a bit darker and touched up the snowflakes with some Stickles.  Easy and done!  Add a bit of machine stitching and it really looks fancy.

Here's what the Let it Snow Snowman set looks like  - it is a very versatile set of five stamps for all sorts of winter themed projects.  Although this layout wasn't about snowmen at all, the title and the snowflakes were perfect accents for a skiiing layout.  I love how you can customize the look with different inks and colouring agents.  Perfect for a frugal scrapbooker.

Supplies used for layout:  Quietfire Design stamps, Elizabeth Crafts watercolour paper, Tombow markers, Simple Stories patterned paper and stickers, Brother sewing machine, May Arts ribbon.
