Two Scrapbook Friends

Welcome to the Songs of Christmas Blog Hop with Two Scrapbook Friends! You should have arrived here from Darcy's blog.



Our Blog Hop is all about the Songs of Christmas and the inspiration for my project comes from the song Believe by Josh Groban (total Polar Bear Express lover here!). I chose this song because it was my sisters favorite song, and I think of her whenever I hear it.  I like to believe my sister, Tammy is looking down on them, and watching over them; especially at this time of year.  Here is the layout:


I used Bazzill's new Nordic Pines Collection, and I simply LOVE it! Love the colours mixed with Kraft.

Don't you just love that big snowflake?? I used a Scrapbook Adhesive Sheet  and then cut out the snowflake. Once I peeled back the final layer of the snowflake, I had a sticky snowflake, ready for some glitter!

Here is another Detailed shot:

Supplies Used:  Patterned Paper, Cardstock, Stickers, Pleated Paper, Paper Border: Bazzil; Alphas: Basic Grey & Momenta; Twine: The Twinery;  Sizzix Snowflake Die; Stampin’ Up & Martha Stewart Heart Punches; Scrapbook Adhesive EZ Runner by 3L; Scrapbook Adhesives Foam Tape;  Stephanie Barnard: Glitter
