Stampin' Up! 2020 Snowflake Splendor Suite 12x12 scrapbook page plus how to make your own dimensional foam alphas.
September 10, 2020
Today I have my second scrapbook page for you using the Snowflake Splendor Suite from the 2020 Stampin' Up! August to December mini catalogue (previously called the Holiday Catalogue). This suite doesn't just have to be for Christmas cards. This is a photo of my husband and boys in the snow on a short break to Mt Buller this year. I also want to share a cool tip with you about how to create your own custom foam alphas, which will save you time and money and give you perfect colour coordination every time.
It's a 5x7" photo, so I just cut a strip of the Snowflake Splendor DSP the same height and added it either side. My base cardstock is Balmy Blue from the Subtles 12x12 pack (you get 2 12x12" sheets of each of the subtle coloured cardstock). I wanted subtle embellishments, so I die cut some snowflakes from the Stampin' Up! Window Sheets using the So Many Snowflakes dies, and layered a smaller Balmy Blue snowflake on top with a Blue Adhesive Backed Gem on top. All of these product are in the Snowflake Splendor Suite and you can see them using the links at the end of the post.
For the title, I have used the totally awesome new Playful Alphabet dies, and the adhesive foam sheets. By adhering some of the DSP to the top layer of the foam sheets before cutting, I made my own custom colour coordinated dimensional foam alphas that are adhesive. This is so totally cool. The letters are a great size too and can be used on cards as well. The dimension created by using the foam sheets makes all the difference, and having them already adhesive, saves so much time and messing around.
Here's a closer look at the Playful Alphabet Dies. Love these, especially as they contain numbers, symbols and extras of commonly used letters as well. Such a versatile die set.
Here's the Foam Adhesive Sheets .It only shows 3 sheets, but you actually get 6 sheets in the pack (size is 11cm x 11.4cm for each sheet). Double-sided adhesive foam sheets can be cut with Paper Snips (p. 159) or open dies to fit any project. They are acid free and ideal for use with cardstock and paper.
Finally, here's a look at the beautiful Snowflake Splendor DSP. I really love that this paper coordinates with such a wide range of colours which makes it even more versatile.
