Hello everyone, Casharina here with a Product Spotlight post. These are some of my most favorite posts to work on because they allow me the opportunity to work with kits I’ve used before & love, or ones that are brand new to me and become some of my favorites! ;o) This week I chose a brand new kit to me, Winter Wonderland.
This is a beautiful kit that can be used for all sorts of layouts. It’s a winter themed kit, with charming little snowmen, and snowflakes galore, but it also includes many shades of pastel colors which could be used for spring and Easter layouts. Here’s the first layout I created using this kit. I used a template from the Easy-As-Pie Rise and Shine collection to create my layout, and I love how it allowed me to really show off the various papers throughout the kit. I chose to not focus on the snowmen and let the photo and the snowflakes take center stage on this layout. I love how the snowflake collage turned out, and the shiny green paper was perfect for the leaves, I just clipped it right to the leaf shape!
That’s not all; I’ve also asked the girls to help me out with a few of their very own creations using the Winter Wonderland kit. And wouldn’t you know, being as awesome as they are they’ve shared some delightful layouts themselves!
Kylie’s layout shows just how versatile this kit truly is. The papers and elements within this kit allow her to focus on the gorgeous hydrangeas. I must say I really love the way she has used the swirly from the kit to tie in each of the flower clusters, what a perfect use of that element. This layout also shows how easily Winter Wonderland coordinates with the Sugarplum Additions, the use of the flowers is flawless!
I love how Aubrey was able to focus on the “snow” in this photo. She explained that they where she lives they do not get any snow, well at least not in the last 35-40 years, :o) but she did have a vacation photo of her little one playing in the snow! Cute photo huh! I love her title; it’s a perfect way to use the snow word art. The falling snowflakes are also a beautiful addition to this layout!
Next up, we have Kim’s Texas Christmas layout. It’s in a beauty! The way she used the snowflakes on the outer edges of the papers is perfect for that 3D look. I love the cluster of paper pieces too, it allows for us to see the many beautiful papers in the kit. The glitter word art just finishes the whole page! I love it all!
Amber was able to mute the colors and a pop of orange to really help the elements stand out in her layout. I love how she’s tacked on the snowflake and tag to create a beautiful cluster using bits and pieces from the Winter Wonderland kit and a few other kits!
Next up we have, Rosy‘s beautiful creation. I absolutely love the way she has used the word art to help fill in the blanks on the journaling, what a great idea! This page is so fun and full of brightness, it’s beautiful!
Lindsay has shared with us another piece of eye candy. The soft colors of this kit are perfect to show off her little angel. The colored snowflakes are beautiful on this background and the frame along with the paper clusters are a great way to show off the many elements in this kit.
Last but certainly not least, we have another stunning layout from lego. This page was done using the kit to focus on photos that had nothing to do with snow or winter. The way she was able to alter the wordart was perfect!
If you love this set, you’ll also love the little Winter Wonderland Brag Book. It’s one of the Shoppe‘s beautiful “Piece-A-Cake” products. Create a gorgeous little 6×4 inch album from a set of 10 quick pages - share it with others, or print two and keep one at home on the coffee table!
Thanks for stopping by – lego will here tomorrow with another awesome Tips & Tricks post!
