Snow Day!

I am so excited to bring you a pocket page layout this week as a Guest Designer for Die Cuttin' Divas as well as a feature post over at Bimini Moose Pocket Page Scrapbooking Challenge Blog!

This week I'm focusing on using diecuts in your pocket pages, and since the challenge over at Die Cuttin' Divas is Snowmen I knew I wanted to do a wintry snow day pocket page!

I started out with some pics I wanted to scrap - we had a very early start to winter here in Calgary, Alberta in Canada this year - this is a snowfall from September! Even though I am not crazy about winter - the kids were so excited to get outside, and it was a good reminder to enjoy all those little 'Life's Moments' that we sometimes miss if we don't stop for a minute. Seeing things through my kids' eyes always make me smile!

I used my Cricut Explore and Design Space to plan the diecuts I wanted to use in my pockets. I used the Cricut cartridge Winter Woodland for these cuts. I find it helps to open a rectangle and size it to 4x6 just as a base to size your diecuts (or whatever size pockets you'll be using). After I cut all my diecut pieces I put them together and added embellishments - Stickles, embossing and Distress Inks, gems, and even some stencilling! Then I combined some Bo Bunny background paper - I cut them from a 12x12 and some Bo Bunny journalling cards. I also used some stamps from Pretty Cute Stamps - they are perfect for pairing with diecuts as well as using on pocket page layouts!

Sentiments used on my page!
