The Cold Never Bothered Me Anyway!

The Cold Never Bothered Me Anyway!

Hello, Iris here with a layout that's all about embracing the Freezin' Season!  This whimsical collection was perfect for documenting the first time we took my girls to play in the snow!

I picked the dark, snowy Shiverin' paper as my background to provide great contrast.  I wanted a design reminiscent of snowballs tumbling down, so I printed my photos at 2", 2.5", and 3", and punched them with circle punches of those sizes.  Then I cut some Doodle Circles (Silhouette Store Design ID: 68077) from the Snuggle Up paper with my Cameo to frame them.  I arranged them across the diagonal, varying placements and leaving space to intersperse some cute elements.  The circles along the edges are cut off because that gives the design even more movement.  For texture, I machine stitched several times around the frames.

I added some of the die-cuts from the Bits & Pieces pack to fill in the gaps, including the snow globe to add some interest in the middle of all those photos.  There's stitching around the globe as well.  I placed word strips form the Combo Stickers and the 4x6 Sticker pack to caption each photo. I always delight in finding just the right little phrase to go with my photos.  Chipboard snowflakes help bring the die-cuts and word strips together into clusters.

The final piece was to add my title, which I propped up on foam, across a small gap between my photos and the journaling. For my journaling, I punched a circle out of one of the journaling cards from the 4x6 Horizontal Elements. See that cute penguin poking up from the bottom instead of another photo within the circle?  He adds something a little unexpected. 

Freezin' Season is so stinkin cute, with fresh fun colors and icons that will make documenting all those chilly winter outings super fun!
