Let It Snow & Sweater Pages by Heather Rubert

Monday, November 20, 2023

Hello scrappy friends! It’s Heather Rubert back on the blog and I’m in December Daily mode! I’m so excited to share something a little different on the blog today - two decorative foundation pages using Sugarplum Wishes and two of Paige’s cut files: Sweater and Snowflakes Background.
True confession: this is my first year making a December Daily! I figured it’s about time I jumped on the bandwagon so I’m making a 6x8 album to document this year’s memories. Since I don’t have any festive photos for this year yet, I’ve been working on decorative pages for now. I made these to go next to each other in the album, since sweaters and snow go hand in hand! I want my pages to include a variety of sizes and shapes and Paige’s Sweater cut file is just perfect for a fun page. I wanted my sweater to be double-sided, so I took some white cardstock and used my Cricut to cut two sweaters that are mirror images of each other. They measure about 6” wide. On one side of the sweater, I backed the sections with Paper 4, Paper 6, and the poinsettia print from the 6x8 Paper Pad. I added a snowflake from the Floral & Snowflake Die Cuts to decorate the front of the sweater. On the mirrored sweater I used Paper 2, Paper 10, and Paper 11 for backing pieces and I decorated with a “Merry Christmas” sentiment from the Cardstock Stickers. I wish I had real sweaters that look like these ones! The next foundation page uses vellum as a base. I cut a bunch of snowflakes using the Snowflakes Background cut file which I resized to just over 8”. If you don’t want to arrange the snowflakes randomly, you could use the negative paper as a guide for placing your snowflakes on the vellum. After gluing all the snowflakes down with liquid adhesive, I added a title using Thickers. A little white pom pom trim and some machine stitching finish up the page! In the final album I plan to place this page over a full-size photo.
I had so much fun using Sugarplum Wishes and two wintery cut files to make these fun, decorative pages! I love the sweater so much I may have to make more shaped pages for my December Daily. Thanks for stopping by and happy scrapping!
