Snowflakes Layout - Bitten By The Bug 2 - CTMH Artbooking

This is my Snowflakes layout as a Design Team member of Bitten By the Bug 2. Theme is Snowflakes. You can click here to enter.

Made this 12" x 12" layout using Cricut cartridge Close To My Heart (CTMH)  Artbooking.

I used a photo of my Niece & her family at Leu Gardens in Orlando, FL which happens to be where I got married over 30 yrs ago. 

Learned alot about sizing making this layout. I used some brads under snowflakes near top of photo so the mat can be lifted up and journaling (I wrote who the people in photo are, where/location & date) can be seen. I did a test of cutting the words using white cardstock. I discovered that the Glacier ink used on white cardstock matches the cardstock color. Decided to use the Glacier inked white cardstock words under the white glitter words for a layered snowy look.

Gifting the layout to my Niece in FL.
