2012 is here!

Welcome to 2012! Usually with a new year, comes resolutions and changes. In 2012, I've decided to challenge myself more with my scrapbooking and to think outside of my usual box. This is what my first post here for 2012 is all about - stepping out of the box! It can be as major or as minor as you want to be!

This month, I am working with Pink Paislee's Snow Day collection. Of course, this collection works perfectly for all your winter themed and holiday layouts. However, it is so much more versatile than that. I decided to step out of my box and create a layout that has absolutely nothing to do with what the collection was made for. The beautiful color palette of deep red, pink and icy blue matched perfectly with some pictures I had of my daughter, Olivia.

It was so easy to create a non-winter themed layout with this line. All of the sheets are double-sided and often one of the sides is simply a gorgeous pattern that could be used for anything your heart desires!

Here are some close-ups of my layout, featuring the Pink Paislee bitty blocks alpha stickers. There are two different colors in the pack and 680 letters! All for only $3.35. You just can't pass these up:
I used a ton of patterns on my layout. I also used Echo Park's Style Essentials Upscale Collection kit. This kit features your favourite patterns in four trendy colors - black, grey, teal and yellow. I used one of the grey patterns here:

I decided to cut some of the polka dots out of this Pink Paislee sheet. I then punched some hearts in a co-ordinating sheet and added an outline and some bling to each:

And, as always, I used a lot of layers on my layout:

And here it is:

I'm having a lot of fun with this collection! Looking forward to sharing my next layout with all of you soon. In the meantime, check back often for more wonderful inspiration from my fellow designers!!!!!
