Winter Layout by Heidi Lewis

Wednesday, January 24, 2024

Hello friends! Heidi Lewis here and even though Christmas is over Sugarplum Wishes is still perfect for wintery layouts. This layout has all the January vibes with origami polar bears clustered around Paige's Winter cut file.
First I made polar bears following this tutorial from YouTube. I made the body of the bears with plain white printer paper after I learned the hard way that cardstock was too thick. Live and learn, lol. However, I was able to use patterned double-sided papers for the hats, specifically Paper 6 and Paper 9. I used stamps from my stash to create the faces and paws for the bears, but you could just as easily hand-draw them. For finishing touches I added 1 1/2 inch hearts for the tummies and hot glued little pom poms to the caps. Once the bears were finished, I backed the Winter cut file with various papers from Sugarplum Wishes. I focused on patterns that aren't specific to Christmas (think plaids, snowflakes, and florals.) Next, I placed the cut file at an angle on light blue cardstock and clustered the bears around the title. For embellishments, I again focused on wintery icons (snowflakes, mittens, penguins, etc). The embellishments were pulled from the Sticker Book, Cardstock Stickers, Mini Puffy Stickers, and Floral & Snowflake Die Cuts.
If you are feeling the January blues, making an origami layout with Sugarplum Wishes is a sure cure! Thanks for stopping by!
