Periodic Table SNOW - Using Yarn as a Simple Embellishment

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a wintery layout featuring the periodic table cut file SNOW, the snowflake spray stencil and some simple embellishment with white yarn.

I started by selecting a favourite photograph and some patterned paper, the beautiful Winter Wonderland line from Simple Stories.  I cut SNOW (sulphur, nitrogen, oxygen and tunsten) from white cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo and adhered it to the corner of the page.  (As always, if you don't use a Silhouette and would like this cut file as an svg file, just email    I then added some snowflakes to the upper left corner of the page using white texture paste and the snowflake spray stencil.  Just goop it on and scrape off.  The fine details of the snowflakes show up beautifully as dimensional accents.

I had a bunch of yarn lying around my craft space for other projects and I thought to myself "hmmm, white yarn would work really well on a snow themed scrapbook page".  So, I added some swirls of yarn to add some texture and interest to the page.  You can use a pencil to sketch out a line, trace it with clear drying liquid glue and then gently place the yarn on top of the glue. 

Sketch out a design in glue.

Place the yarn over top.   Easy and quick, but it's very fun.  Add a few extra stickers or die cuts to embellish your yarn design and call it done.  Happy scrapbooking!

Supplies:  Simple Stories patterned paper, stickers and die cuts, Quietfire Design electronic cut file and snowflake stencil, Silhouette Cameo, Ranger texture paste, Aleene's white tacky glue, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L tape runner and dimensional foam adhesive.
