Wonderland Fun!

I haven't shared anything crafty recently, so with it being Winter, I'm now sharing three snow layouts!  Although it has been unseasonably warm up here in Montana, and we haven't had lots of snow, we did get some back in November and my boys got to build a snowman.  To help get in the Winter spirit, I've enjoyed creating fun snowy layouts using Wonderland.

On the 7th of this month, I held an all day Crop.  My first one hosting solo, and it all went great!  This layout is a quick snowman themed one that I had as a Make and Take for the ladies that attended.  I random stamped the background with various snowflakes stamp sets and used Cricut AP Cartridge for the snowflakes.

I held my monthly class last week and we made snowy, sparkly layouts using Wonderland papers.  My pages started out with "Snow much Fun" as the title (see pic below).
But after class was over, I decided to change it.  I had started another layout with other pictures from the same day's, playing in the snow.  And it dawned on me that these pages were all Sledding pictures and the other layout was more of a variety of snow activities.  Gotta love the Rub and Erase Remover!  After carefully removing the letters "SNOW" and the "much", I used the rub and remove eraser to remove the remnants of adhesive left over on the page.

So I re-stamped my title to read "SLEDDING FUN" and this is my now completed page.

A combination of White and Heavenly Blue Embossing Powders mixed with Prisma Glitter to stamp the snowflakes.

This little tip, I picked up from Karen Pedersen's blog.  Cover the Dimensional Elements Flurry with Liquid Applique (Z308) and sprinkle it with Prisma Glitter (Z134) and then heat set it to make the liquid applique puff up and adhere the prisma glitter to it.  Isn't it lovely!

This is the next Wonderland layout, Snow much Fun, which is the other snow play pictures that I mentioned above.  For my monthly class, some of the ladies did not want to stamp their title and cut it out, so I offered to cut out letters for their title using the Art Philosophy cartridge.  This was an extra set of the Snow Fun title, so I decided to use it for my layout.  And I have to give creative credit to Tena & Cheryl that attend the class because I completely lifted the snowcapping of the letters from them.
