Color Dare #125 ~ Snowhaven

This week on Color My Heart we are featuring a new challenge Color Dare #125, which features Cranberry, Glacier, White Daisy, Black and Whisper.  All of these colors are found in the Snowhaven paper pack which I adore!!

Please note we have changed the challenges this year and have added neutrals to the color combinations this year. This means you may not add random neutral colors to your projects. You must use ONLY the colors specified. However, we will allow black and white, unless otherwise specified.

Color Dare #125

 

I have been needing to change out the shadow box from which I have hanging in our house.  I had designed one for autumn but needed to do one for winter.  So I finally made it a priority since I finished with my christmas cards.  I really love the Snowhaven paper pack and can’t wait to design more layouts.  I have been designing my shadow box inserts so they can be changed out with the seasons using the hook and loop dots, which are just mini velcro dot which are prefect for attaching your artwork. I also design the photo frame so that it is more of a pocket and the photos can be changed out each year.

Just Chillin Snowhaven ~ catscrapbooking.comFor this layout I used my Artbooking cartridge to cut out the Just Chillin’ and snowflakes.  They can be found on pg 76 of the Artbooking booklet.  I was very lucky to receive a Cricut Expolore for Christmas from my husband and I have to say I am really liking this machine.  My expression would not always act normal when I used CCR on my Mac and it would get very frustrating.  The Explore has been way to learn and great for when you want to look at layered items.  I guess it was easy for me to catch on since it is more similar to my Silhouette.  I prefer to work on my cut files on my computer because that is what I have been doing with my Silhouette for years.  To add a little more shimmer I added a little Crystal Stickles to my White Daisy snowflakes along with some bling.

Supplies used:

  • Paper Pack ~ Snowhaven X7188B
  • Cardstock ~ Cranberry & White Daisy
  • Embellishments ~ Sparkle Clear Assortment Z1752, Pink Glitter Gems Z1807 & Stickles
  • Shimmer Trim ~ White Z3024
  • Complements ~ Snowhaven X7188C

We would love for you to play along this week.  Just go to Color My Heart blog and link up your design.

Happy Crafting!
