I am using a sketch from Scrapbook & Cards Today I saw in the Winter 2016 magazine and some Crate Paper Cute Girl and Snow & Cocoa as well as Maggie Holmes Bloom.
The first thing I did was create a cut file inspired by a pattern on one of my papers I had laying around! I cut it out onto a 6 x 12 piece of white cardstock using my Cameo and then adhered it to the striped paper. And because I love to sew on my layouts, I sewed around some of the "petals". And I used some large enamel dots as the centers.
To create my title, I cut out "When it's cold out but you want to" using Thirsty font - it's such a fun font! I used Dear Lizzy Ooh La La Thickers to create "Swim".
All the fun elements and layers on the photo make me happy - like that cute penguin! And that Maya Road tulle flower from last year's SCT kit was a perfect change of texture.
I used two dies to cut a scalloped circle and the notebook page. And sewing adds such wonderful texture...I rarely skip sewing on a layout!
Here's the sketch I used. I tailored my layout for one photo since that's all I had to document.
Thanks for visiting with me today! I hope you have a great spring!
