Hello! My name is Carolyn and I live in Winnipeg, Canada. I'm a mom to a fun four-year-old girl who gives me more than enough photos and topics to scrap. I began scrapbooking when she was born as a way to give myself a break and to document our family's journey. I just recently discovered scrapbook challenges and blogging and I'm hooked! I'm learning so much it is hard to define my style as I'm trying out all these new techniques but if I had to choose, paper piecing is my favourite so far.
I'm very excited to be guest designer this month. I created this layout as my daughter and all her friends are obsessed with Frozen. She was so excited when Elsa showed up to her friend's birthday party. I'm so happy I was there to see it and take pictures.
I used a glitter paper from Martha Stewart Essentials for the border, the letters and snowflakes. The letters I sprayed with Mister Huey's opaque white paint to give it a more frozen look. The snowflake paper is from Basic Grey: Eskimo Kisses. I used a Marvy, Martha Stewart and Stampin' Up punch for the snowflakes. The light blue shimmer paper is from DCWV: Solid Glitter Blue. I used this to outline the letters and make some snowflakes. I found the letters didn't pop off the background so I added some black ink around the edges. The larger white snowflakes are from Recollections. I chopped the circles off of them and used them around the layout. The ribbon, photo corners and gems are from Dollarama:) Finally, I used an old greeting card for some snowflakes and the border to the textbox.
Let's get rockin'!!!
