Our little Snow Angel....scrapbooking layout for Scrapbook Academy DT!

I thought I would change things up a bit and share some scrapbooking pages with you! This two page spread is something I worked on last week for the Scrapbook Academy DT. I was so happy when my very good friend Julie agreed to send some pics of her adorable daughter, Olivia, playing in the snow. They were perfect for this project! I had them printed in black and white. I also had 2x3 prints made as I love using pics in different sizes on my pages.

I used new Harmonie patterned paper and embellishments. This is a new Canadian scrapbooking company based in Quebec. Their paper, coordinating ribbon, Peel Off stickers and embellishments are so gorgeous. I really enjoyed working with this line and the pages came together so easily because all the of the elements coordinated so nicely. I used the Boule de Neige collection and Core'dinations Cardstock. The colours in these patterned paper are so beautiful...I just love the winter fresh colours.

I cut the title and flourishes on my Quickutz Silhouette and the scallop border is a QK 4X4 border die. The scalloped border was a nice "home" for me to add some journaling with Mellisa Frances rub-ons. One of the great features of the Core'dinations cardstock is that you can sand it, tear it or distress it and a coordinating colour shows through. I sanded the scalloped border strips before I applied the rub-ons.

I traced over the title and flourishes with my Sakura stardust pen to add some extra sparkle and it looks really cool when the light catches it. I also, added the silver Peel-Off stickers here and there and used the coordinating buttons and acrylic snowflakes as accents.

I wanted to add some journaling. So, I asked Julie to tell me about the story behind the photos. I firmly believe that scrapbooking is about telling stories. I printed the journaling and cut it into strips and placed it on the photos.

So, there you have it!!! I hope you enjoyed looking at these scrapbooking pages and I hope to take pics of some of the other pages I have completed and share them with you too!

Thanks for stopping by!
