CTMH Scrapbooking layout

Good Morning!  I hope the sun is shinning wherever you are today.  This is what I have been working on when I can steal some spare time!  The captions below the photos gives more detail.  Blessings!

The cards and scrapbook layouts below are all done with the
Winterland kit purchased from a Close To My Heart rep. Audrey Cando.
The mittens, snowflakes and wording are stamps from the same kit
I've cut the dimensions from the card and page maps
given in the pamphlet that comes with the kit. 
The rhinestones in the middle of the snowflakes are also  part of the kit.
These embellishments can be purchased separately
if you wish as well as the stamp set and rhinestones.
The two pins can also be purchased separately.
There is usually lots of left overs after finishing the page maps for the cards and pages.
 Here I experimented with another stamp sentiment and played with the
butterfly addition. 
I chose not to use the butterfly and went with the snowflakes and rhinestones.
This could be a  great "Guys"card.   
Here is one of the finished 2 page layout
included (with measurements for cutting) as part of the Winterland kit.
The cups are part of the stamp set.  You can layer them for a unique design.
The solid cup in a light colour stamped first and the worded cup stamped on top in a darker colour.
Close To My Heart stamps are acrylic stamps making them easier for placement the than wood mounted stamps. 
Mittens are stamped and cut out.
I did a grey pair behind and added a brown pair on top using dimensionals. 
The 3 pins at the top have larger rhinestones in the middle to accent them.
They lie behind the brown panel attached with glue dots.  
The tiny snowflake stamp (also part of the stamp set) have tiny rhinestones as centres to accent them.
The scalloped edge grey paper strip is cut using a scalloped edge blade insert for straight edge cutting systems. 
Here is the second  of the finished 2 page layout
included (with measurements for cutting) as part of the Winterland kit.
You could use the white areas to place 2 photos or place one photo and use the other
 as a journal box or stamp/sticker something like "Let it Snow".
I will make my choice when I choose my photo.
I stamped the snow flakes (2 sizes/patterns) and added rhinestones.
I love 'sparkle'
Top right hand corner brown pattern paper embellishment was made
with accordion folds using a ScorPal (scored every 1/2" before folding).
I cut one half of the V first the folded it over as a guide to complete the cut edge
to form a ribbon cut effect.  The ends of the pins are not sharp enough to
go thru the paper so I used a paper piercing tool to make the holes
before inserting the pins.
The bottom left hand side of the page has a grey 1/2" strip layer by the smaller blue strip of
patterned paper using adhesive on the back of each strip.  The pins are tucked in and rhinestones added to their centers.  

Leave a comment and/or send me the photos of your finished pages or cards using your choice of patterned paper.  If you need the measurements for pre-cutting your pages before assembling them - email me ( and I will send them to you.  Blessings on your day!!
