Snow Baby Layout

Today I want to share a layout with my beautiful Snow Baby - how cute is she??? She has changed so much since this photo was taken. I mean, she was super cute then, and she is super cute now, but it is so hard to process how this time has passed so quickly!

I have been working really hard to use the stuff I already own- so I pulled out some older paper from KaiserCraft - the Silver Bells line. I LOVE that they had pinks in their Christmas papers that year- non traditional yes, but beautiful!

I started by trimming a piece of Bazzill French Vanilla (my all time favorite) and using a Fiskars  border punch all the way around it. I inked the edge of the paper, then adhered it to the background paper. My Scotch ATG is one of my favorite tools for adhering large pieces of paper. I roughed up a few of the punched edges to give it some texture. 

In the upper corner I tore the paper and folded it back. I grabbed a metal accent from my stash to finish the corner. 

These beautiful chipboard pieces are by Blue Fern Studios. I inked them using Ann Butler Crafter's Ink by Colorbox in Aguamarine. I used a sponge applicator - this is so much easier than trying to hold a tiny piece of chipboard and ink your fingers in the process. I used a heat gun to dry the ink (it's a crafter's ink, not a paper ink) and then applied a layer of Iridescent paint in Snow, also by Ann Butler. Look how sparkly it is!!

This piece of chipboard is SUPER old- it's from Close To My Heart - it matches one of their older Cricut Cartridges. I love that is is pure white! I stamped it using the same ink as above, heat set it, than painted with the Snow Iridescent paint. The little silver trim is from Kreinik. 

How amazing is this stamp from Ann Butler? It is available from Unity Stamp Company. This is a large background stamp - Snowflake Frenzy. These stamps are unmounted, red rubber and they make beautiful impressions.
