This month the team has been focusing on snowflakes and the Samantha Walker Silhouette Store has so many great files for snowflakes and winter...it is so hard to choose!  After checking out all of the great files, I chose Snowflake Border
Snowflake 5 and the
circle tear drop scallop for my layout! I really wanted this to be simple, focusing on the amazing photo that my friend Leah took and the snowflake border.  I think I love the simplicity of it the most!


other supplies:
Salt and Pepper Swiss Dot Card Stock from Bazzill, Maya Road Cording, Vellum, miscellaneous pearls and sequins, Marshmellow and Blue Twilight Glimmer Mist, Sunday Font

I reduced the snowflake border by 50%, duplicated it and welded it to make it fit across the page.
And for the snowflake 5 with the tear drop scallop..I reduced the circle by 25% , added the snowflake which I reduced by 35% and then simply centered the snowflake inside the scallop circle.  Once it was cut, I then cut circle in half with my paper trimmer, adhered the vellum and added it to my page.

YOWZAH! Your page has pinach and truly highlights the photo. I didn't know you could reduce like that. Love the many things that can be done with the Silhouette. Thanks for sharing your awesome page.
