Shake Up the Season With This Snow Globe Scrapbook Layout

The snow globe — the ultimate knick-knack for anyone who adores the beauty of winter. And whether it’s a once-a-year seasonal decor item, a cherished childhood trinket or something you gaze upon in a gift shop (after swirling around, of course), these shakeable souvenirs whisk your into a magical, whimsical winter wonderland no matter where you are! Blog contributor Sachiyo Omitsu and her family are big fans of snow globes, which inspired her to create a festive snow globe scrapbook layout that mimics the emblem of the real thing — check it out!

Sachiyo’s Inspiration

What comes to your mind when you hear think of snow globes? Souvenir snow globes from the places you’ve been? A winter snow globe with classic Christmas scenery in it?

Although our children are dreaming of a white Christmas like the one found in a winter snow globe, real snow is nowhere to be found in our area now. When we don’t have snow, we create our own little winter wonderland in a snow globe! Making snow globes will be one of our family projects this winter. Have you ever created your own snow globe? How about this snow globe scrapbook layout?

Layout by Sachiyo Omitsu – CM Independent Advisor

To create this layout you will need:

Step 1: Using the inside of the Jumbo Custom Cutting System Circle Pattern and the Green Blade, cut a circle from the middle of the snowflake patterned paper. Set the circle aside. Use the paper cut-out as the base, flipping over to have the tan gingham pattern facing up.

Step 2: Cut the snowy pines patterned paper to measure 11-3/4″ x 11-3/4″. Add it to the tan gingham base.

Step 3: Using the Treeline Border Punch, punch a border from Rich Brown, White and Dark Green Solid Cardstocks. Cut each border to 1-1/4″ width. Layer the borders; Rich Brown, White and Dark Green Solid from the bottom.

Step 4: Using the Clouds Border Maker Cartridge, punch a border from White and Rich Brown Solid Cardstock. Cut each border to 1-1/2″ width. Adhere the brown border under the white one. Add it to the bottom of the trees border.

Step 5: Adhere the border to the bottom of the snowflakes circle that was previously cut. Cut along the circle and trim any excess.

Step 6: Cut a circle using the inside of the Jumbo Custom Cutting System Circle Pattern with the Red Blade from Platinum Shimmer Solid Cardstock. Adhere the snowflakes circle on the platinum circle.

Step 7: Cut Bronze Shimmer Solid Cardstock to measure 4″ x 2-1/2″. Mark at 1/2″ from the edge of one of the 4″ sides. Cut diagonally from the marked point to make a trapezoid.

Step 8: Adhere the snow globe pieces on the base. Add stickers and embellishments, using Foam Squares on some for added dimension.

    1. I copy and paste into Word, format, delete parts I don’t need and save to a folder with a descriptive name for future reference. I’ve developed quite a library to use when I’m fresh out of ideas for a layout.
