Let it snow!

I thought this would be a perfect week to feature a snow-themed layout with the blizzards we have been getting hit with. This is a layout my club members put together in January. It uses the mistletoe papers and Colonial White pigment-based stamp pad. I distressed all the edges with desert sand ink and a sponge dauber. It has a flap that opens to reveal a place to journal. That file tab on the journal is actually a flower pot from the flower pot stamp set that was a stamp of the month last spring, but is featured in the new idea book.
Supplies used: Magic layout, Mistletoe Level 2 paper pack, cranberry cardstock, colonial white cardstock, Nature's Gift Stamp set, Flower Pot Stamp Set, Snow Flurries Stamp Set, Colonial White brads, Cranberry ribbon, Colonial white ink, desert sand ink,

I created this layout using the new Sweetheart papers and the new spray pen. I love this cute paper!

I sprayed the base paper with blush re-inker and pearl paint. The new spray pen is so fun to use and brings a little sparkle to the pages. I sanded the black cardstock a little to distress it a bit.
