I'm so excited to be a part of the Practical Scrappers blog hop today! We have an awesome and talented group of designers for you to hop around to. We are all scrapping from our stash (which I love!) and have great projects for you to see.

For the blog hop, I created a new layout based on these awesome new sketches from Scrapping with Christine. She's started designing lots of fun card and layout sketches that are so fun to play with. Today, I'm working with this sketch.
Since I'm still on a winter kick, I turned those hearts into snowflakes to create this layout...
Yes, that's me, the teenager on the left, circa 1988 with big hair and big bangs and a winter snowman sweatshirt. Love it.
I used my January kit to create this layout. I've been creating a lot with it (more to come soon!) so I have quite a few partial sheets of patterned paper. Creating that square punch background was the perfect way to use up some of those scraps.
I used a Martha Stewart snowflake punch for the large snowflakes. I punched them out of white cardstock, then spritzed them with Mr. Huey's Calico Shine, added some Distress Stickles in Clear Rock Candy, and then sprinkled even more chunky white glitter on them. You really can't have too much glitter, right?
For the borders on each side, I used a Fiskars border punch and then layed a 1/2" strip of paper over the top. I love how it grounds those punched squares with nice edge.
Such a fun layout -- I'm glad I have this photo to remind me of those 80s fashions and hairstyles...
Thank you, Christine, for the awesome sketch!
