I decided I wanted to scrapbook a few pages of Christmas and Winter past. Looking out the kitchen window at mom & dads, you see the beautiful winter wonderland and one bright red cardinal perched on the bush. I think that’s a lilac tree but I do not remember. I thought it was so exciting that Carta Bella made a paper that accented that beautiful bird. I also added stickles to the birds to make them pop off the paper. Then I added rhinestones in the trees to make them sparkle.
This page was fun to create because floods of memories came rushing back from my childhood. I was 13 and my sister Melanie was 6. I remember the hat and mittens because I think I wore them every year until they wore out. The dog in the picture was Dolly. I loved her so much. She ran away one year while dad took her hunting. She never came back. This is the same paper pack as the last photo Snow Fun by Carta Bella. I added some red sequins with rhinestones on them and some red pearls at the top. The snowflakes, border, puppy and title came from the sticker pack and the chipboard pieces.
This photo is my home growing up. Isn’t it a peaceful looking picture? This paper I purchased at Hobby Lobby. It is The Paper Studio Winter Wonder Page Kit. The trees are chipboard and the title is from the sticker pack. The word “Peace” is a wood veneer that I painted white and covered in glossy accent. Then I added blue sequence and it was finished. So simple and so peaceful
This layout was the first one I made yesterday. The black and white photos of our home back in 1958 went great with the gold glitter paper and the reindeer from Pink Paislee Snow Village scrapbook kit. The title, deer and bling are all from my stash. The snow on the reindeer hooves is glitter snow but…it doesn’t look like it (disappointing but we learn from our mistakes)
The last photo here was one of my most favorite things. Being outside…sliding at George Street Park or sometimes ice skating. I remember that bulky cream-colored sweater I had. I wore it under the red vest and was toasty warm no matter how long I was outside. Then came the face wash. I am quite sure I was being sassy about something. Elizabeth Buffington and Kathleen Bednarski were the “enemy” (tee hee) At the bottom of the layout is my little sister Melanie and her orange saucer for sledding down that big hill. I can also see Renee Spear in the picture. Good times, great friends and wonderful, wonderful memories. This paper is from the paper pack called American Crafts The Color of Memories. The chipboard pieces and the snowman are from the Snow Fun Carta Bella ephemera. I added stickles to the snowman and rhinestones around him.
