PinkFresh Studio DEC23 Challenge: Winter Greetings Scrapbook Layout


Hi, friends! I'm back with another project created from the recently purchased Folk Snowflake set which I fell in love with. The main component was to create a background using the layering stencil sheets. For the title, I used one of the sentiments from the Folk Snowflake Clear Stamp Set and die-cut it with its coordinating die set.

I'm submitting this page as a part of the PinkFresh Studio December 2023 Holiday Vibes Challenge using the color palette shown.

The picture was from an Alaskan Cruise with the glacier behind us...lots of snow and ice. So this set was perfect to showcase this picture. LOL! Also, I wanted to create a CAS-style (Clean and Simple style) page. I loved how this turned out :)

First I randomly stenciled the snowflakes with different colored inks to create a soft background. Then on a separate piece of white cardstock, I stenciled one more to stamp and die-cut as a stunning accent by the picture.

Next, I die-cut and inked rectangle frames and mat panels. Also, die-cut a vellum snowflake for added interest.

The picture was double-matted with the inked panel and the gold mirror cardstock panel using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser. Set aside to work on the rectangle frames.

Apply the E-Z Runner® Micro Refillable Dispenser to the rectangle frames. It has the perfect 1/8" width to cover the narrow areas. I've added an extra strip of adhesive to the corners for extra security.

Using the matted image and the T-ruler as a guide, determine the placement of the rectangle frames. 

The picture was popped up with the Crafty Foam Tape in Black 108ft. for a subtle 1/32" lift (half of 1/16"). The snowflake shape was popped up with a regular size 1/2" 3D Foam Circles White Mix which has a 1/16" height.

Stamp and die-cut the sentiment from white cardstock. This will be the title. Add a combination of 3D Foam Strips in White and 3D Foam Squares Micro White to make it stand out.

Tuck the snowflake vellum shape behind the picture in the upper right corner and secure it with the E-Z Runner® Permanent Fine (aka the Vellum Runner). Then add the title.

Lastly, add the half-back golden nuggets with the Adhesive Dots Mini.
