Seasonal Expression Recipe Challenge

Each week I will share my version of a layout, card, or other project found in the pages of the NEW Seasonal Expression 1.  Our Idea Books are full of IDEAS to make your crafting experience less stressful. Let me share with you how easy it is to be INSPIRED by and create your version from the ideas shared in the pages of our idea books
. My challenge to you is to give it a try!

From page 12, a Chelsea Garden springy layout becomes a black, charcoal, and white snow layout

A black pattern from the retired Silver & Gold paper collection is the base for this 12"x 12" single page layout. The word pattern paper from the same collection was cut at 11" x 11". giving a 1/2" border. White Daisy cardstock cut to 10 3/4" x 10 3/4" is the next layer. The striped zip strip is trimmed to 1/2" x 10 3/4" and placed 1" from the bottom of the White Daisy piece. A 1" strip of the same pattern paper as the second layer (it was actually the leftover from the 11" cut) is placed a top of the zip strip. It was so cool how 'let it snow' was one of the phrases on this paper. I used 3 1/2" x 5 1/2" portrait photos instead of the Picture My Life cards as shown in the inspiration artwork. I did stamp directly on the White Daisy piece 'something WONDERFUL' as the title and added the 'Happy Thoughts' sentiment piece to the right side of the layout, stamped on a piece of 1 1/4" x 2" scrap of White Daisy flagged on the left side. A few black dots from the Black and White Dots collection finished the page.

I am thinking of adding a vellum piece of journaling along the bottom, what do you think?

Enjoy and comment below if you will be trying your hand at this layout.
