Ink and Share Scrapbook Blog Hop Snowman Season

Welcome to the Ink and Share Scrapbook Blog Hop. We are Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators showcasing our fabulous products on scrapbook pages. Christmas is our theme this month. Sue asked us to make our layouts sparkle! Anything in the current annual or holiday catalogs can be used to create our layouts. If you are on the hop trail, you may have arrived from Cindy’s blog. She had a great layout!

The Feels Like Frost designer series paper is silvery on one side. It is a great choice for snow themed photo mats. I like to use lots of patterned papers on my scrapbook layouts for quick assembly and to enjoy the papers long after the stash is used on cards.

Use the Snowman Builder punch to punch out the Let It Snow sentiment. A few days after I took the photo, I added Highland Heather snowflakes at the top of the layout and around the edges of the photo mats.

Here are the patterns in the Feels Like Frost 6×6 inch paper pack. Pretty silver on one side and real snow scenes on the other.

ICS Blog Hop Gather Together

Thank you for hopping around with us as we share fall themed projects using our fabulous Stampin’ Up! products from the holiday catalog which goes lives today! You may have arrived from Janey Backer’s blog and her fabulous project. My project is below.

I settled on inking up my Gather Together stamp set with cajun craze ink for the maple leaf, sentiment and subtle background stamping. The Gathered Leaves dies perfectly cut the maple leaf. It’s popped up on a dimensional with linen thread behind. I quickly created this card at a family retreat for my sister so she could participate in our card swap. She did not have time to make a set of cards prior to the retreat. I still wanted her to go home with a set since she enjoys paper crafting just as much as me:)

The Gather Together stamp set has the roundish circle stamp for a subtle background effect.
