Stay Inside

It’s no secret that I don’t particularly enjoy the cold weather. Snow is pretty on December 25, and after that…well, I’d rather it disappear. Alas, we don’t always get our way and that’s why I usually choose to just STAY INSIDE.

This fun kit with bright reds and pretty blues is the perfect companion for all your too-cold-to-go-outside photos and activities. Hot cups of coffee, snuggles by the fireplace, and being with family—the upsides to cold days.

These are photos from my daughter’s SnapChat account so the quality is not great so I kept them small in size. The title is made from word strips in the kit. Using the Magic Eraser, I erased the background and then gave them a little shadow so they’d stand out a bit more clearly against the background.

Sometimes simple is best! I love the way Jill chose to use the white wood background with her beautiful photo and choice elements. It
feels cold! The simplicity of the page makes it stunning!

I used a couple of design principles here: grounding and visual triangle. The triangle is easy to see, with the bright pops of red. They were almost necessary once I chose the Coffee Always embellishment. I like to make sure things are grounded when I’m scrapbooking and I grounded the coffee cup with swaths of paint and the picture with the strips of paper and ribbon. I also grounded the embellishments in the corner with the circle and the picture. This helps to make sure things aren’t just floating around on my page.

Journaling cards as titles! Trina used one of the many journaling cards in the kit for the title of her page. I do that often as well! It makes creating a title super fast and easy. If you want more ideas for using journaling cards on your layouts, check out
this post and this video tutorial!

As soon as I opened my blanket at Christmas, I knew I had to get a picture with it to scrap with this kit. I’ve found that I am constantly thinking through the kits I have and trying to look for pictures that would work with them as we are out and about. A lot of times, it’s the opposite – I will find a kit to go with the pictures I already have… but switching things around can be a fun challenge to!

Although this is a winter-ish themed kit, it doesn’t mean it can’t work for other subjects and seasons. I already had these photos in black and white and I thought they would work great with the pop of colors in this kit. I loved the way it turned out!
