Getting Scrappy DT Challenge! -- Flurries of Fun!

YAY! It's time for another Getting Scrappy Challenge over at Amanda's Crafts and More!

This week the challenge is "Flurries of Fun!"
Make a winter or snow layout
& of course use at least one cricut or svg cut

Here is my layout for the challenge:

The snowflake paper is from a paperstack that I bought YEARS ago at Michaels. The polka dot paper is Recollections paperstack also at Michaels. I wanted to keep my papers simple to emphasize my pictures and cute little penguin.

My title is cut out from the Simply Sweet cartridge at 2". I used DS to weld the letters together and then I traced around each one with a black marker. The subtitle is a vellum phrase by Colorbok. The 2 little jewels were included in a DT gift package from Amanda!! Thank you Amanda! The little metal snowflakes are Making Memories. I used Diamond Glaze to glue my vellum and snowflakes down. I used too much on my vellum but its okay because it just made the top and around it glossy. :) and it reminds me of slippery ice!

My second favorite element on my layout!! (my first being my daughter ;P) This cute little guy is cut from the Create-a-critter cartridge at 4". I used glitter embossing powder on the entire white piece which is kindof hard to see. Then I used my PK Everyday character face stamp. I inked each eye separately and put them where I wanted them, then I inked his mouth and put it where I wanted that. I used the penguin beak that came on the cartridge for his nose, and I inked and put his nose and feet up on pop dots. The bling on his scarf was also included in Amanda's DT gift package! She's so awesome!

December is a recollections stamp that I heat embossed with white. I made the flags by using little scrap strips and punching out the ends with the corner of a square punch and doodled on each one.

January's prize is a stamp set by Joy's Life Stamps!
