Keeping it cool with layouts

Today we have some layouts from Mary Pat Siehl that are all about SNOW! Most of us here in the states are getting a lot of it. Regardless of what the them is that you are scrapping, you can get some great ideas from Mary Pat today. She always has well balanced layouts that really work that Core’dinations Cardstock!
~~~~~~~~
Once again for my layout I started with the a Core’dinations Essentials Dark background.  I scored the edges and lightly sanded them to create a border around my layout.  Next, I embossed a piece of the White Wash collection using a Couture Creations embossing folder.  I sanded it to expose the red core!  Next, I cut my title using Core Essentials cardstock.  I also used my Marvy punch to create the snowflakes.  This punch ROCKS becuase it also gives it a light embossed look as well.  Finally I added in some pattern paper along with a homemade Core Essentials tag.

Using the Silhouette with Core’dinations cardstock is just so darn fun because it cuts BEAUTIUFLLY!  I was a bit unsure about using the the Core Couture Glitter collection with the Silhouette but it cut like BUTTA!  I was so excited.  For my layout I cut the snowflakes using the glitter Core.  You always need a bit of sparkle on a winter layout.  Right????  I then cut my title using the Core Essentials Neutrals.  Once I had those items taken care of it was time to play with and form the layout.  I started with the Core Essentials Darks and then layered the wonderful Jillibean Soup Core Impressions paper. Next, I took some red from the Core Essentials and ran it through my paper crimper and lightly sanded it.  Finally, I added in some pattern paper and arranged my snowflake embellishments and title.  So perfect!

    Both are great. I especially like the snow angel. It looks like he is floating on a cloud.
