Frosty Friend | Simple Stories

Hi there, today I am sharing my second layout for the month for Simple Stories I am documenting this photo so my grandson and his little snowy friend friend, that was send to me by my son.  Normally I scrapbook about a year behind, but I couldn't resist adding this photo to a page immediately!



I loved this notebook lined and snowflake scattered patterned paper and definitely felt it needed to be a background.  I added gold texture paste "snowfall", created with a mask from My Favorite Things, to reinforce my wintery theme and draw the eye to the centre of the page.


I created this die cut of a snowman just for this page, and love how it looks cut from this gorgeous dark wood-grained paper.  I couldn't resist adding some seasonal flair to his hat with Washi and a die cut!


My photo is tucked into the snowman, to which I layered chipboard, die cut and sticker elements, as well as a tag behind and around.  All of the snowflakes that I used got a little enamel dot in their centres. I love the pops of colour they add!


My title is a combination of a cardstock sticker and alphas stickers, both from the collection.  I layered them together and added an embellishment cluster above them.


To finish things off, I added a small cluster to the upper left side of my page and some journalling.

I cannot tell you loud enough how much I love this collection, it makes me so happy and that says a lot as I am not a lover of winter! Ha!  I think this is a definite must have if you have winter photos to scrapbook!

I have created a process video for this layout, you can check it out below or here on my You-Tube channel!
