Challenge #388 - It's Christmas Time!

Happy Monday!! Heather R here and it is my turn to share this week's challenge.  Hard to believe we are less than 10 days away from Christmas!  My kids are counting down.  So it seems only fitting to have a Christmas themed challenge for this week.  I have been meaning to scrap these photos of my 2 oldest that were taken back in 2017 when I surprised them right after Thanksgiving with ugly Christmas sweater shirts...

Check out the rest of the Design Team and then share your projects with us!  Happy Scrapping!

One of my Christmas cards, I'm sending out this year.

I created this Project Life page Insert of a recent outing with friends
(The 4x6 Pocket Card is a Studio Calico that I've had in my stash for 3 years):
There's a non-Christmas-related flipside that you can see on my blog, if you'd like
(just click on my name to take you there!)


I've made a lot of Christmas cards this year as usual - I tend to mix up the designs - this is just one of many I have recently completed.

It's Christmas time at our house when I'm making Christmas Cookies

#387: Mint Challenge

Our challenge this time is to use the colour mint.

-For this project, I featured a picture of my daughter who was standing in a mint green light in a gazebo decorated for Christmas.  I thought this would be the perfect subject matter for a project with a mint green theme.

I had to deviate from the challenge just a bit.
I dont really have anything "mint" nor did I have any photos to scrap that would fit the "mint" theme so I figured, "mint" is part of the "green" family and created a layout using mostly green.

 2 page TN Spread

I went with Mint color paper, hearts and splatters of Sweet Mint color shine on my Christmas Eve Layout

I used mainly mint with neutral coloured flowers on this holiday photo.

Challenge #386 - Snow

This time of year in Canada we are usually covered in snow! It has been a bit of an odd year so far with more rain than snow this winter for my province. I'm sure that will change soon though and we will have the beautiful white snow covering the ground. 

For this week's challenge I want you to be inspired by the crisp white snow and create a project that is mostly white with just a pop of color!

For mine I created this snowflake Christmas card and used a coloured ink to stamp my sentiment. My snowflakes also have a touch of color in the diamond Stickles I used.

Look at what the rest of the Design Team created!

Using a lot of white was actually more of a challenge than I expected...maybe because we don't get any snow here in the Sunshine State...LOL

For my project, I was inspired by a snowy scene.  I made a shaker card filled with white "snow" glitter and accented with snowflakes.

I used Kraft as my background then used texture paste through a doiley to create my white background. I added a few random smaller pieces of paper and 2 large metallic elements that look a bit like snowflakes. I also misted in pale blue to match the papers.
