Winter Layouts

No white Christmas here in Houston, but it is cold! The Swirlydoos January kit arrived just before Christmas, jampacked with all kinds of gorgeous winter goodies! Here are my first two layouts made with this kit.

This LO is based on Beggahuna's sketch, also provided in the kit. Picture of me when I was still a student. Me and my boyfriend rented a small recreational cottage in the northern part of The Netherlands, close to where my sister is living now. Then this snow blizzard came and we were isolated from the rest of the world for a few days. Some big bulldozer shovels from the local forrest rangers had to rescue us.

I embossed the vertical striped with embossing tinsel and snowed the title with white ink and distress stickles.

DH and his brothers playing in the snow back in 1958. This LO is made with the gorgeous Bo Bunny papers of the Swirlydoos January main kit and the Glimmer chips of the Technique Add-on kit. They are just perfect together, so I didn't have to do much to make it look pretty! I misted the chips with Glimmer mist and then embossed some pieces with embossing tinsel (also included in the technique add-on kit).
Thanks for visiting!          Bonnie
