Winter Sparkle

I'm excited to bring a closer look at the "Winter Sparkle" layout that made its debut 
when the Glistening Collection was revealed at
AUTHENTIQUE PAPER
blog.authentiquepaper.com
 I took these beautiful photos the day after Christmas...we received almost 10" of the white stuff 
on Christmas night...almost unheard of in Texas!  I wanted to mimic the rolling hills and valleys 
that were covered in snow so I created my own with paper.
 

I had a blast playing with the patterns and trying to decide just which ones I wanted to use.  
You have to admit that this is one stunning collection...love!
From one of the 6X6 paper bundle sheets, I cut three large snowflakes with a die by Spellbinders. 
 Next, each one was topped with a disc of paper punched from the back of the Components
 sheet and a button.

Although there wasn't much to creating the design, I thought it would be fun to point out that 
there are so many looks you can achieve from making this one cut.  First, draw a wavy line onto
 the back of the paper you are wanting to use and cut out.  

At first I thought this look above would be nice...and then I started shifting the smaller piece 
around and finally decided on the look that you see on the layout.  

For even more contrast, add a strip of paper to separate the two designs or add even more
 wavy patterns! There are so many things that you can do with plain 'ole paper;
  I enjoyed thinking a little outside of my box with this one :)

A SN@P December Daily

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
