Some like to hibernate during winter (and we don’t blame you!), but others like to embrace the cold with an array of activities — winter festivals, dogsledding, ice bars, golfing on a frozen lake, ski races, ice-sculpting and so much more! Blog contributor Sachiyo Omitsu put the magic of winter at the forefront and made this frosty and framing winter scrapbook layout! Ready, set, snow!

Step 1: Use a piece of Navy Solid Cardstock as the base.
Step 2: Cut a piece of Navy Solid Cardstock to measure 11-3/4″ x 11-3/4″ and cut out a 2″-wide frame. Set aside the square piece.
- Cut four 4″ x 12″ strips of various designer papers.
- Cut each strip as shown.
- Adhere the strip to the navy frame, spacing 1/8″ each other as shown. Trim the excess.
- Add to the base.
Step 4: Cut a 7-1/2″ x 7-1/2″ from the herringbone designer paper and adhere to the page.
Step 5: Use the Polar Bears Border Punch to punch a border from the navy square piece that you cut in Step 2. Add to the page.
Step 6: Cut one 3-9/16″ x 6-1/8″ mat and two 3-9/16″ x 3″ mats from a piece of Navy Solid Cardstock.

Fabulous! Thank you for sharing this
I love this
I’m going to try to adapt this for the 7×7 albums I’m making for my granddaughters. (Yes, I still have some CM 7×7 albums!)
I’m confused why she started didn’t start with a full 12” navy piece? Would you mount the whole thing on a 12x 12 when done? Maybe I missed something.
Julie, I see what you mean. Maybe it has to do with the 1/8″ spacing between the border strips, so that you have an equal 1/8″ around the outside as well as between the paper strips?? I think I will cut the strips as indicated and mock it up in a dry fit before cutting the navy paper to see if that is the case. Good luck!
Do you have a pattern to make the pieces? Needs more instructions
Yes. I am confused. Lol
Could someone please give sizes of small pieces
I’d also like some more instructions on how to do the mosaic/ frame pieces.
I am confused. Lol. Are each strip of the designer papers cut into 4 to make the design.
I found this video on youtube. Sachi’s Creative Mind
It shows the sizes and it is very easy.
