Winter Scrapbook Page & Weekly Challenge

Today I bring you another layout for my 2012 scrapbook.  I used my Gypsy and some yummy paper from DCWV Christmas stack and plenty of Martha Stewart Glitter to put this page together. I did only one page as we don't do much during the winter season other than work. We are summer people, yet living in the south really makes for mild winter compared to those icy temperatures and blistery winds that Chicago offered! Yes, I do love living in Alabama.

Here is the layout on my Gypsy Woman. Note I did move those snowflakes around but I really like the way they turned out. Below are the different layers.


Note I have not placed the mats as shown on the left of the screen but they are ready to be cut.... At the last minute I wasn't sure I wanted them so I have them if I change my mind.


Now this is a quick layout and I think you will love seeing the papers on this video as they are so awesome. I love these quick layouts and they look so pretty on the black pages this book offers.

Here is a close up of the heading and in getting it ready I applied glitter and then ran it through my Cuttlebug to make sure that it adhered all the way . Click HERE for a quick video showing the technique I use.

Here is the snowflake that I had leftover from the video and decided to use the one I had made up rather than one I just cut.
This is a close up of the other snowflake using the Martha Stewart fine glitter. Love the effect of using them both on the same project. Now if you too would like this Gypsy file just click HERE to download.
I hope you liked today's project. I challenge you to use something with glitter in it this week, It can be a page, card or craft but you must use glitter or stickles.  Then just link up your project by 4PM on Friday the 24 of February to quailfy to win a stamp set by Studio 12. Winner will be chosen by Random.org and announced Saturday morning.
Thank you for your sweet sweet words of encouragement. Your comments inspire me to continue sharing with you. Have a blessed week!
