Cozy & Cuddly with H2H...

Did you know that H2H has brought back Scrapbook Challenges!?!?!

The first one is up on the blog and here are the rules:
  • Must be a 12x12 layout showing your interpretation of Cozy & Cuddly
  • Must use CTMH Dimensional Elements
  • Must have at least 1 photo (any size)
Here's what I created for the challenge...a 1-Page Layout using the Retiring Frosted WOTG.

here are some of the details of the layout...
I used some retired Canvas Letters that I purchased from "While Supplies Last" items...they're gone now though...
I love this picture of my boys...and love the pop of red in Talmadge's coat!
I used the Frosted Stickease (retired) for the banners...
This little wreath is what started this whole layout!  I made this wreath last August for an Autumn/Winter Idea Book Swap I was in (you can see the rest of my stuff I made here).  Anyways...the wreath turned out to be a little more than what I wanted to do for a Swap so I nixed the idea...but I've had this one lying around all this time.  It's all cut using CTMH's Art Philosophy Cricut Collection...the chevron circles are mounted on Circle DE's from Dimensional Elements Signage pack.
I new I wanted the word "SNOW" in big letters so I grabbed some Kraft Cardstock and cut out using the CTMH Artiste Cricut Collection...I love the no-flair of the font that comes with this's so boy-friendly!
The letters were pretty plain so I decided to take one of the Stickease Borders that comes with the Frosted Compliments (retired) and layer them on top of the Kraft Cardstock...I had a "W" that was messed up so I did a trial-run on it first.  Peel off the border Stickease and stick to the letter.
Here's what it looks like from the back...trim off so you can make out the letter (you can see that my "O" I kept untrimmed but all the other letters needed it!).  I suggest using CTMH's Non-Stick Microtip Scissors...these things are FABULOUS!!!
Then I sponged Desert Sand Ink all the way around for some pop!  After I decided I like this look, I repeated this process for the "S"...the "N"....the "O"...and the real "W".
Did you know that you can do this whole SNOW/Stickease process a different way?!?!...apply the Stickease Border to the Kraft Cardstock FIRST then cut using your Cricut!
Thanks for stopping by!

WOW Katy, I love what you did with your dimensional elements and the stickease. Awesome tip too.
I love the pic of your children all snuggled in their coats enjoying a moment out doors. This layout is great and Thank you for sharing with us at H2H Monthly Scrapbooking Challenge.

What is there not to love about this layout? I love your wreath and the way you used the stickease on the letters. I love the way you cut the stickers into banners and even the way you did the banner with the canvas stickers. The picture is so gorgeous, too. Frosted is so beautiful that it's hard not to have a beautiful project in the end, but you managed to turn beautiful into stunning! Just love it!

Kigz said... canvas letters, plus Frosted, plus beautiful picture, plus Katy's mojo = GORGEOUS CREATION!!!! Yep, that is an equation I can solve! Truly an inspiration! I cannot wait to play with my titles! ;)
