Sisters are a Gift & GIVEAWAY!

Happy Friday! Jill Cornell here for my final post...I can't believe how quickly this week has flown by. I've saved my favorite project I created for last! For my final project to share with you this week, I created this layout using the "Kris Kringle" collection. Every year at Christmas, my sisters and I take a new photo together. It's a tradition my mom started when we were very little and we still uphold it today.

Here's a look at my layout...



When I first saw the reverse side of the "Snow Angels" patterned paper, I fell in LOVE! Those circles are my FAVORITE and I used a tone-on-tone effect for a lot of added texture.


To create extra texture, I punched snowflakes of a variety of sizes out of the same circles I wanted to adhere the snowflakes to. I adhered rhinestones in the centers of the snowflakes.


Here's a little hint for title work, use a black journaling pen to outline the letters and it will help them pop off your page:


Finally, I used the white opaque mist from Studio Calico to add a snowy look to my kraft cardstock.


Thank you so much for checking in with me this week and taking a peek at my projects. Thank you to SEI for the opportunity to bring you some inspiration this month!

Please stop by my blog and visit me anytime: www.jillcornell.blogspot.com.


Thank you Jill! What a clever use of the snow angel's paper today! It has been such a fun week with a diversity of great projects throughout. We love to see the creative way you mix papers and products to create a new look everyday.



Since Jill was so great at mixing it up this week, we thought we would mix up the giveaway too. To enter to win a mixture of the goodies Jill used this week, leave a comment on this post by Sunday, January 16th at midnight MST. Tell us which of Jill's posts was your favorite this week. We will announce the winner on Monday. Be sure to check back to see if you are the winner so we don't have to pick a new one.

Jill did a wonderful job with your lines. But, I think my favorite is the same as her favorite, Sisters are a Gift. The misting is a great touch and those pattern on pattern flakes are fabulous. Thank you for a chance to win a mix of SEI lovelies!
