The Paper Girls Challenge #213 Snowflakes

It's been a little while since my last Paper Girls Challenge DT project, and what better theme than snowflakes.  In Australia.  In Summer.  Natch! 😂. Be sure to head on over and enter your own project!

I bought the Forever Fall collection by Simple Stories mainly for the unique colours for an Autumnal collection.  Eventually I decided the colours were perfect for TallCraftyDude's Ski Camp photos.

I'm definitely planning to try introducing some other colours in future layouts about snow camp than orange and blue, but it's a good place to start.  I stuck only with the one paper collection, which rarely happens for me!

Since there's not a lot of call for snowflake motifs in my crafting, I used a cut file.  We do get snow in our mountains and the suburb I live in is pretty inland and we get some light snow once a year or so.  It doesn't form a covering on the ground usually, but it happens.  

I backed it with vellum which was a bit of a random choice but turned out ok.  It turns out I don't have plain 12x12 vellum. Huh!  Who knew?

The year 8s at Max's school go to Snow camp and this is one of several layouts documenting this. 

Title

Not a particularly creative title, but I wanted to use the word "ski" since he chose that over snowboarding.

 Yeah I smudged the ink once some gold mist fell on it! 🤦🏼‍♀️

 

Embellies

I used some stickers from Shimelle's Go Now Go Sticker book and a few chipboard and flat stickers from Amy Tangerine's Cut and Paste collection in addition to the stickers from Forever Fall...oh and a few tiny stickers from Simple Stories' current Fall collection.

Also, trying to stick anything to stitching (which is only partially finished (long and painful story!)) is a bit trial and error.  Permanent Glue Dots make it work every time! (Thanks Columbus Trading!❤️)

 

What do you do with the eleventy billion "fall" words and expressions when you say AUTUMN? I made it work here!  The arrows even look like skis!


 Carta Bella's Snow Much Fun had a cut apart sheet with some relevant words too!


 

Ski You Later

  Love, and play with The Paper Girls!
