I’m back on the blog today sharing a layout I created using the gorgeous Snowflake cut file by Paige Evans (available pre-cut in black, white or cream). PMP PE Snowflake Sarah Packer December 18 - Sarah Packer - Brrr

To start with I inked the snowflake with a pale blue ink to give it an icy feel and then heat embossed (I’m totally loving embossing again at the mo!) with an iridescent powder and then a sparkly silver powder to make it sparkle and stand out on the page.

I decided to use a patterned paper for the background, instead of my usual white, as I couldn’t see the snowflake enough and I really wanted it to be the main feature. I raised the cut file up on foam pads to give it more dimension.

Once I had stuck the snowflake to the background I embellished it with a few sequins in some of the holes for added bling! I mounted my photos on some leftover Crate Paper Snow and Cocoa scraps and fussy cut some trees and snowmen from leftovers of the same papers. I then mounted the wooden BRR on another scrap and cut around it, again because I wanted it to stand out on the page a bit more.

Once I had stuck my photos and placed the snowmen and trees, I then added some sparkly smaller snowflake stickers around the large snowflake and a couple of Bramble Fox snowflake perspectives to bring the page together.   I love the icy feel the embossing gives to the snowflake, a real winter wonderland!

With love and colour

Due to ongoing health and personal issues, I’m afraid I am closing the shop for 6 months.  I very much hope to be back but I will only be able to judge this once I have gone through the next few months.  All outstanding orders will go out next week (commencing 15th June).  I will be keeping the blog side of the website going and I may pop up on social media sometimes but I may have to take a fair bit of time out while I process everything and work through treatments etc.  I know that particularly my pre-cut customers will be disappointed and I am so sorry to let people down but sometimes being strong involves having to give something up.  It’s not been an easy decision I can tell you.  Thank you so much to everyone that has supported me in the last 4 years, in particular my wonderful design team.  Seeing my designs on layouts capturing people’s precious memories is something I will always treasure.  Best wishes xx
