Winter Wonderland – Snowflake Inspiration |Amanda Baldwin

Hi Hip Kit Friends!

Amanda here, & I am super excited to share my first project with the stunning November  2019 Main Scrapbook, Pocket Life & Cardstock Kits! The November digital cut files are super pretty & I just couldn’t resist using the Snowflake 1 cut file for my Winter themed layout! But enough chatter, here’s what I created….

“Winter Wonderland”

Oh wow, wonderland indeed! Fall might have the most beautiful colors, but there’s something really magical about Winter, snow & ice! So delicate and pretty!!!

Let’s take a better look at this snowy delight!

Just gorgeous! So many beautiful layers and details!

I am absolutely swooning over the exclusive Make A Wish 12 x 12 patterned papers, so naturally,  I couldn’t help but use a few of them for this layout. I started with the soft pink, reverse side, of Deck The Halls as my layout base. Next, I trimmed the reverse side of Silent Night to 10″ x 10″ and centered it over the pretty pink base. And last, but by no means least, I trimmed pattern paper White Christmas to 9 1/2″ x 9 1/2″ and layered it over the soft gray paper. To add more emphasis to the overall design and draw you into the center of the page even more, I decided to use the Snowflake 1 cut file. I cut it to a 10 inch size using the Bazzill Avalanche cardstockfrom the November 2019 Cardstock Kit.

With the snowflake lining the center of the layout, I began to build up my page. The frame in the Make A Wish exclusive Chipboard Stickerswas perfect pop of bold color to draw further attention to my darling boy’s picture. I positioned my framed photograph in the center of the snowflake, and adorned both sides of it with a variety of blue Christmas Tree Die Cuts.  With these main embellishments in place, I was ready to add a few stamped snowflakes too!

The tiny snowflake from the Make A Wish Stamp included in the Pocket Life Kit was just the right size to repeat stamp, and it worked perfectly as an alternative to sequins or enamel dots.

With snowflakes being a bit of a theme in my layout, I decided to add a few more of them with the fabulousChipboard Stickers! So good! I also added a few puffy sticker hearts & dots to complete the look.

For finishing touches, I used the Puffy Alphabet Stickersfrom the Pocket Life Kit to create my fun, Winter Wonderland title! And there you have it! A really lovely page that is super fun (& easy) to recreate!

I hope I have inspired you to get creating with the November 2019 Hip Kits today!

Happy Arty Days, Amanda xo
