"Snow Angel" by Cherie Nymeyer
Supplies - Cardstock: Bazzill Basics; Patterned Paper: October Afternoon and Jillibean Soup; Snowflake: Unknown; Glitter Candy: Pebbles Inc.; Alphabet Stickers: American Crafts

Variation #1: I didn't put a mouth on my snowman (actually I did but it didn't work so I planned to do something else and then I forgot, oops!)

Variation #2: I used a piece of ribbon for the snowman's scarf.

Variation #3: I added glitter dots to the snowman's buttons.

"Mark St., London" by Janette Kincaid
Supply List - Patterned Paper: Echo Park (Winter Park), We R Memory Keepers (White Out); Cardstock: Bazzill; Letter Stickers: Basic Grey, My Mind’s Eye; Rhinestone Bling: Kaiser Crafts; Chipboard Heart: Heidi Swapp; Brads, Ribbon: unknown

This little snowman makes me so happy, I can hardly stand it!! I knew I wanted him to look ‘real’ just like Frosty so I added as much depth and dimension as I could.

Variation #1 - I folded my length of ribbon in half (width ways) and tied it around the snowman’s neck just like you if he was made of snow.

Variation #2 – I made his hat round by bending and shaping the black cardstock and rolled the bottom edge to look like the brim.

Variation #3 – For arms I cut a piece of brown cardstock into a branch shape and then rolled and twisted the paper. If you dampen the paper before rolling, it will hold its shape and stay twisted once it’s dry.

Lovely layouts ladies.

Cherie - your layout is gorgeous! Love the mixed title and your snowman turned out so cute. I also love that snowsuit. Just a FYI, I think the clear snowflake is from Maya Road.

Janette - Wow! Your layout is beautiful. It looks so soft with all that inking. I am really impressed with all the details you added to your snowman. His arms are very 'real' looking. Great job.
