Love and Mittens - Christmas in July

Well helloooooooo there all my scrappy friends!  It's nearing the end of July, and I don't know about you all, but I am super excited about all the new collections that are being released!  So many cool and lovely new products are in the shop or are coming our way, and I don't know about all of you but I really do like the idea of using up some of my older stock to make way for all the new and beautiful items that will be in my hands soon!

So this time around I chose to dig out my Christmas and winter supplies.  I know for myself I tend to scrap the season, so when it's summer I always want to scrap either my current summer photos or previous summer photos.  This of course means that I neglect my photos from other seasons and holidays until I am actually in that season.  Well with the awesome new winter and Christmas collections coming out I wanted to dig into some of my previous products that I had purchased from Paper Issues.

With all that being said, welcome to my Scrappy Christmas in July.  I have 2 blog posts for this month and both will be using a separate collection plus some extras thrown in here and there.  For my first entry I choose to go with the Snow & Cocoa collection as my jumping off point since the picture I was scrapping was more about the winter season than any holidays.  I combined it with some older Pinkfresh Studio products that I also had.  Even though Snow & Cocoa was a bit more on the vintage and cream side and the Pinkfresh Studio was very stark white I combined them in such a way that it all gelled together!  I used my circle punches to add some patterns and interest to the background since I didn't want to have a ton of layers underneath the photo, considering how busy the background paper was!  And here you go with the final product!

Of course it wouldn't be a blog post from me without a process video to go along with it!
