Last month, I had an extra fun surprise in my design team package from My Creative Scrapbook. The kit club releases several kits each month and in addition to my regular kit, the owner also sent me the August album kit. It was filled with Echo Park Paper and lots of fun embellishments. Yay! I couldn’t wait to play.
Today, I have one of the layouts I made with this kit, which featured EP's So Happy Together collection. I love this scene paper. It’s super cute, easy to work with, and I thought the bare pine trees looked a bit like winter. So I decided to make a winter scene.
Using a scene paper makes quick work of a page because much of the design is already done for you. Here, I used a photo to cover up part of the scene in the lower right (it was more houses and trees) and then let the scene on the paper guide the rest of my design.
To make the snowclouds, I added white buttons from the kit. I had them overlap the edges of the clouds a bit so the clouds would look heavy with snow. The paper had white doodled stitches around the frame and I stitched over those with a machine to add a subtle touch of texture
I added a title next to the photo. The alphas on the letter sticker sheet weren’t quite the color I wanted so I used an acrylic paint dabber to recolor them. It worked like a charm.
