Crate Love - Snow Days

I wanted to share one of Crate Paper's New lines, Snow Day, and my layout for the CHA booth.

It turns out, the color palette in this line is perfect for me, because my girls wear a lot of purple and blue in their winter wear, along with the pink.  It was really fun to work with.

I added a little bluster to this particular day by hand stitching some "wind" on the snow.  The white scallop is actually scalloped Bazzill, but I hand cut the scallops from two sides so I could cut it down from a 12x12 and make it fit my layout.

I loved the chipboard circles and the layered snowflakes, so I made dimensional pieces with circle punches and ink to create faux snow falling.  I love the texture that it added.

You can see all the products available for this line here.

Have a great day!  Davinie


  1. super cute! i love that colorful polka-dotty paper.

  2. So cute. I really love this line...though I'd probably just use the backsides and not make wintery layouts. It just has such fun colors! :)
