Hi Connie Nichol here today with a couple of snowy projects that are being featured over on the Quietfire Design blog. I started with some of the papers from Simple Stories Snow Patrol line and just kept creating from there. Here’s a simple 8.5 x 11 scrapbook layout to feature a photo I snapped with my phone in the Rocky Mountains last fall.
Snowflakes seemed like the perfect embellishment, so I used my Sizzix Eclips 2 to cut a bunch of large snowflakes using the Berry Leaf digital cutting file from Quietfire Design and layered them under the photo to form a snowy background. I love this cutting file because it includes the solid background layers you can use to add dimension and interest. Even though I used only a monochromatic white, there are so many possibilities for layering different colours and types of paper to get different looks. At only 99 cents, digital files are such a bargain.
I also cut some snowflakes in a much smaller size to make a card. Just grab the corner of the svg cut files on your virtual cutting mat and drag them in or out make them bigger or smaller I am amazed and impressed at how well the Eclips 2 cuts out the detail on a tiny snowflake.
A touch of glitter makes everything looks fancier, so I added some Ranger Stickles to both the title and the snowflakes. Have a wonderful winter day!
Supplies Used: Quietfire Design stamps (Let it Snow Snowman set) and digital cutting files, Sizzix Eclips 2, Simple Stories patterned paper and stickers, Ranger Stickles glitter glue, Clearsnap Ink, Chameleon markers, Tombow markers, May Arts ribbon, cheesecloth.
