March Reveal - ScrapMuch?, Fancy Pants

Hi there!

Can you believe it is March the first?  Are you like me and counting down the days until Spring? Well, I for one cannot wait, and it is only 19 sleeps away!  Now I know that in Ontario, where I live,   Mother Nature has a mind of her own and can still bring us Winter like weather, but just the sound of Spring makes me happier!

Anyway, on to the reveal.  This month I played with Blissful Blizzard by Fancy Pants. 
I really liked the warm earth tones of this collection, and found it not only perfect for winter themed layouts, but also great for boys in general.  Here is a look at some wintery layouts that I created.....

I adore wood grain papers, corrugated cardboard, and glitter papers - so this kit was like Christmas!   I mimicked a snow hill with both the corrugated paper and the glitter paper.
 This page came together pretty easily,  utilizing the triangular banners from the kit.....
..... and some fun die cuts.

 I started this page with this great burnt red background paper, and simply added a few strips of pattern to anchor my photos.  Very simple really. Then inked around the outside of the layout with some white ink to make it look blustery.
 Then I had some fun creating some embellies, making glittery snowflakes with button centres.
 A die cut shovel full of snow with Stickles for an accent.
A little banner that features some fun wintery word stickers, from the kit.
A a title that incorporates alpha stickers from the kit and a die cut, that I created.  (I think my Silhouette needs spell check - I see now that I spelled shoveling wrong. oops!)

The strips across the top of this page came in the kit, on the sticker page.  I love the designs, though I do not love that they are not a full 12 inches..  Although, this  ended up not being too much of an issue as I was able to embellish one corner of my page to disguise this... and anytime I can add some banners it's a good thing!  These banners also came in the kit.
 Some more die cut fun.

 For give the crooked snowflake, I fixed it after I saw this photo.  Some buttons and hemp, and few little dew drops to add a bit of snow-like sparkle.
I couldn't resist adding a little heart for my two sweeties.

I also created this fun little altered gift item.....
What do you think?  Wouldn't it make a great favour for a sledding party, or a girls night in party?  I die cut a couple of mug shapes and stitched them together.
 Then I printed a sentiment out and added it to the bottom of the mug.
Then the fun part, going to town adding some bling, twine and die cuts!

I will have one more layout to share with you later in the month that showcases this kit in a more generic way.  And I still have enough product to create a few cards or another layout!  I love the value in these kits, so many projects for your buck!

Thanks for visiting!
