Snow Fun with Tammy Tutterow

Every so often I find myself thinking about making a layout.  If you know me, you know that I am a self proclaimed “stuff” maker.  I make things.  It isn’t that I don’t like pages, I just struggle with them.  I find that when I want to make pages a good sketch helps me get going and makes the process much easier for me.  Recently I found a sketch by Allison Davis that gave me a real spark and inspired me to make a page.

I had a group of winter pictures that I had been wanting to make into a page for a while.  I decided that the Glitz Hoopla collection was the paper to use.  Yes, I know, when you look at Hoopla you probably think birthdays and celebrations, but the beautiful shades of blue in the collection had me thinking about ice and snow.

I used Hoopla “Frames” for the base page, “Zebra” for the white mat and photo mats, “Pipework” for the pattern, and “Polka” for the paper strip under the ribbon.

I used adhesive foam squares under my photos to lift them off of the page and make them stand out.

I found these clear Heidi Swapp snowflakes in my stash.  The back side of them are curved making a trough shape.  I filled the trough with Crystal Stickles.  Once the Stickles was dry I adhered the snowflakes smooth side up.  The finished effect makes it look almost like glass filled with sparkles.

To record the date, I used a Hoopla Journaling Cardstock sticker.  I sanded the sticker a bit on the surface and on the edges so that it would accept Distress Ink.

I used Rock Candy Distress Crackle paint on the “Pipework” pattern to add a frosty and icy effect.  Each element was inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

The glitter letters I used for the title are by American Crafts.
