Frame A Frosty Presence With This Winter Scrapbook Layout

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!

Winter themed scrapbook layout with layered polar bear and snowflake embellishments and placeholders for three photos.

To create this layout you will need:

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.

Step 3:

  • 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.

Step7: Adhere flocked borders, stickers, embellishments and mats, using Foam Squares on some for added dimension.

What cold-weather, wintertime memories would you shovel onto this winter scrapbook layout?

  1. 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!)

  2. 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.

    1. 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!

  3. I found this video on youtube. Sachi’s Creative Mind
    It shows the sizes and it is very easy.
