"All Bundled Up" by Lynette Jacobs
Supply list - Cardstock: Bazzill; Printed Papers: Fancy Pants (Frosted); Punches: EK Success and Martha Stewart; Brads: Art from the heart; Letter Stickers: Scenic Route

Variation #1: I punched the bottom strips instead of scalloping it.

Variation #2: I cut pine trees along the top of the wavy paper strip.

Variation #3: I matted the top photo on the second page.

Variation #4: Instead of stitching on the wavy strip I fauxed stitched with a pen around the entire piece of paper including the little pine trees.

"At the Ball Park" by Jennifer Larson
Supplies - Patterned Paper: Pink Paislee, Jillibean Soup, The Girls' Paperie, Studio Calico; Cardstock: Bazzill; Stickers: Doodlebug, Basic Grey, Studio Calico; Stamp: Jillibean Soup; Ink: Stampin' Up!; Buttons: October Afternoon; Jute: American Crafts; Adhesives: Scotch, Zig 2-Way glue, Glue Dots; Twine: American Crafts; Punch: EK Success

Variation #1: I didn't change the design too much. The major change was to eliminate the snowflakes, since this was a page about baseball.

Variation #2: I did change the scallops to pennants that I cut out of patterned paper--perfect for baseball!

"Dashing Thru The Snow" by Michele Edwards

Supplies - Cardstock: Cor’dinations, American Crafts, Bazzill, BoBunny; Patterned Paper: Pebbles; Embellishments: Snowflakes cut with die-namics, snowflakes cut with Cricut (Christmas Cartridge), glamour dust, unknown silver and silver snowflake brads; Alphabets: Cricut (Plantin Schoolbook), Floss: DMC


1. I used a 6X8 picture instead of the photoblock on the right page.

2. Instead of the scalloped edge, I used half-snow flakes in alternating blue and green. I used the snowflake edging to frame the focal picture.

3. To add sparkle, I highlighted the snowflake edging with tiny silver brads, randomly using silver snow flake brads. For even more sparkle, I used glamour dust on all the white snow flakes and the word "SNOW" in the title

4. I stitched around the curved edge of the photo mat, and again through the center of the striped strip.

5. I used journal strips rather than a journal block.

Lynette, I'm amazed at the trees that you cut out along the curve. Very impressive.

Jennifer I love that you replaced the scallop border with the pennants. I'll have to remember to do they sometime.

Michele, I like that you subbed a 6x8 photo for the 4 smaller photos and how you moved part of the title down for interest.

Jennifer....I love the banner at the bottom. (crazy about banners)

Michelle...stunning use of the bling.

Here we go! It is going to be a great week.

Lynette - Wow, I like how you incorporated the trees in your rolling hills. The papers you chose match your photos perfectly. Great job.

Jennifer - I am a real sports fan (more hockey than baseball) so I really appreciate a good sports layout. The banner is a great way to tie in the theme. Excellent!

Michele - Look at your puppies playing in the snow. I really love how you capture the action. Amazing details too. Great job.
