Hello there! It’s Meghann Andrew, and I’m so excited to be with you for my first post in 2019! Today, I’m sharing my love for the Let it Snow Stamp! Let’s take a look at this winter staple for your stash:
This fun stamp includes the perfect mix of elements: phrases, embellishments and title possibilities! Living in Texas does not produce many snow days, but I had to use this stamp to document our first snow experience after living here six years!
Supplies | Snow Day Journaling Tags, December Blank Label Stickers, Winter Puffy Stickers, Navy Puffy Alphabet Stickers, Large Jane Alphabet Stamp – Outline, Let it Snow Stamp, Noteworthy 12 x 12 Paper Collection, Family Fun 12 x 12 Paper Collection
I started off by setting the color scheme for my layout, taken from the colors in my photos, using the column of paper on the left side of the layout using the Noteworthy 12 x 12 Paper Collection and Family Fun 12 x 12 Paper Collection. My photos, which I printed at 3″ x 4″, created a second column along my patterned papers. From there, it was time to use the Let it Snow Stamp in a variety of ways.
I loved the dark pink section at the top of the pink Noteworthy 12 x 12 Paper Collection paper, and decided to highlight the “winter fun” phrase here. It fit perfectly, and keeping it tone-on-tone using pink ink, it didn’t distract too much from the right side of my layout.
Along the column of photos, I added circle snowflakes and hearts from the Winter Puffy Stickers, but also wanted to add a small tag that included the date. The “snowfall total” tag was perfect for this, and I even recorded our snowfall total—a measly 1″, but still a big deal here in Houston!
My favorite part of this layout was the curtain of colorful snowflakes that I added to the right side of the page. I started by drawing light pencil lines in alternating lengths, about 1-1/4″ away from each each other. I selected my ink colors based off of my chosen patterned papers—light pink, dark pink, navy, light and dark teal—and got to work stamping them centered on the lines. Once they were all complete, some quick stitched lines in pink and teal using my sewing machine added some texture. I also wanted to add more dimension, so I stamped and fussy-cut five snowflakes to “pop” off the page.
I had to add a bit of sparkle to my page, so I grabbed my iridescent glitter glue and got to work “glitzing” parts of my snowflakes. Once that was dry, I worked on my title. The lovely Navy Puffy Alphabet Stickers spelled out “Texas” and the outline Large Jane Alphabet Stamp, fussy cut and added with dimensional adhesive, added the word “snow.” Once it was adhered, I again added glitter glue inside of the lines and allowed it to dry fully. I love that the curtain of snowflakes leads your eye to my title and journaling below.
I hope I’ve inspired you to pull out your Let it Snow Stamp to document even the most meager of snowfalls! Thanks so much for stopping by today!
