I'm sure you've taken a few snow pictures over the last week. Here are some great layout ideas from Scrapbooks etc.
Pretty Punch Winter Scrapbook Page
Design by Lisa Storms
Use basic punches to create a graphic snowflake border. Abstract flower punches produce simple snowflakes when paired with white cardstock. Clip the flowers' rounded tips, adhere the shapes to multicolor punched circles, and top with gems.
Sweater Weather Scrapbook Page
Design by Jennifer Perks
No snow? No problem. Patterns, textures, and accents from the sweaters in these photos inspired the creative color blocks on this cardstock-only page. Turn buttons, snaps, and other notions into layout embellishments. For a fun, interactive element, machine-stitch a zipper to cardstock. Mimic the texture of a sweater by layering tone-on-tone cardstock shapes. Outline the shapes with pen to help them stand out.
Digital Winter Scrapbook Page
Design by Leslie Lightfoot
Bring together your favorite outdoor photos in a photo collage. A digital template makes designing the layout a snap -- all you need are photos and a few digital elements! Embellish with a cluster of stars instead of the traditional snowflakes and use dark colors for an interesting way to display winter photos. (Remember, you can get all your digital layouts printed at Photo Express!)
Outdoor Fun Winter Scrapbook Page
Design by Vicki Boutin
Head outdoors with your kids and snap shots of them enjoying the snow. Stamp a snowflake on a circle of white cardstock and add a gem in the center to make it glisten. Punch a text pattern into circles for an unexpected accent.
Editor's Tip: To get properly exposed snow photos, use the Winter or Snow setting on a point-and-shoot camera, or set a custom white balance on a digital SLR.
Snowflake Flurry Scrapbook Page
Design by Erin Clarkson
Break away from traditional icy pastels and go bold with unexpected hues. Stick with one paper line to make matching a breeze. Balance the bright colours and eye-catching patterns with black-and-white photos that are sure to pop. For a smooth finish, sand chipboard edges after covering with patterned paper.
Snowscape Winter Scrapbook Page
Design by Greta Hammond
Fashion slopes from white textured paper and layer them with adhesive foam to create depth between layers. Trim snow mounds with rickrack and tuck action photos behind the hills to make them feel like part of the scene. Mat snow photos with patterned paper to give them added oomph on a page.
Winter Day Scrapbook Page
Design by Amy Howe
Amy turned to darker shades of purple, blue, and green for an elegant look (the three colors also happen to fall next to each other on the color wheel). The dark colors contrast nicely with a large black-and-white photo, showing the fun that can be had on a dreary winter day. Clear plastic flowers with button centers add a subtle, but glimmering touch.
