"Snow Much Fun" Layout by Designer Lori Stroup

Happy Thursday!
Today we are showcasing an awesome layout created by
Designer Lori Stroup
inspired by the
December Golden Globe Inspired Stash Challenge

"Hello, everyone! Lori here today to share my take on the December Golden Globe Challenge, which is to make a winter layout and use snowflakes for embellishments.

My layout is of my granddaughter building her first snowman of the season. We were lucky enough to get a little snow in November - which is kind of early for us - and it was perfect for building a snowman, so we took advantage of it!

I have used several snowflake stickers and snowflakes punched out of the patterned paper for my embellishments. You can read more about my layout on my blog here:

Thanks so much for stopping by today. We would love to see what you create!"

created the amazing page below inspired by the
December Golden Globe Inspired Stash Challenge:
"Hey everyone. Can you believe that December is here?? I don’t know where the time goes. I have my take on the Golden Globe Stash Challenge for this month. We were to create a winter layout and use snowflake embellishments. I created a page of my daughter and grandson out in their yard last winter. For the snowflake embellishments I used some snowflake ephemera and also embossed some snowflakes on vellum and then fussy cut them. Love how they turned out!! Thanks for stopping by."
