Yesterday we awoke to more than 12 inches of snow and the all-hallowed snow day notification from the schools. Gotta love an unexpected mini-vacay in the middle of the week! In celebration of that, I thought I share a snowy page (and a free cut file to go along with it!
S U P P L I E S :
I snapped these shots of Hayden testing out his saucer off the mountain of snow that had been plowed from the driveway all winter. What the photos don't show is the road at the bottom of the snow hill, making it necessary to bail off said saucer at the end of the run, lest you careen into the path of oncoming vehicles. Snow days are never boring around here, that's for sure!
To balance out the stack of photos on the left side, I cut an argyle pattern from white cardstock and filled it with a few diamond shapes cut from BasicGrey Aurora papers. I also added some diagonal lines of machine stitching to secure everything to the background. Atop the cut file, I layered chipboard, acrylic and cardstock shapes that tied to the theme of the page. I printed my journaling on white cardstock and cut it into strips, staggering them amongst the shapes to help lead the eye through the design.
I love how well the Aurora line works for snowy day photos (something I tend to have a lot of here in Colorado!). I also love these type of "framing" cut files because they make it easy to add lots of patterns in an organized, contained space. If you'd like to download the cut file for your own personal use, just click the image below.
Wishing everyone a warm and cozy Wednesday, snow day or not!
