Winter Wonderland

There is nothing quite like stepping out into the brightness of new fallen snow. There is a stillness to the cool, crisp air that makes the world seem clean, new and full of the possibility of adventure. My family loves to spend time in the winter sledding down the hill at a local park and being dragged on sleds behind four-wheelers with their cousins. I'm sure you have similar winter traditions. And like all traditions, they deserve to be scrapbooked.

So, in the middle of this wintery January, I thought I'd give you some ideas for some fun winter scrapbooking layouts. Whether you are scrapping a weekend at your mountain cabin, a trip to the slopes, or the unexpected family snow day, hopefully these ideas will get your creative juices flowing.

-Use darker shades of blue, purple, and green for a cold look. Goes especially good with black and white photos.
-The most natural color scheme choice for a winter scrapbook layout is blue and white. However, silver accents also look great.
-For a more contemporary look, you can even try adding a touch of purple to your page.
-Use bold, decorative fonts to enhance the theme of your layout. Try covering chipboard letters with winter scrapbook paper.
-Use patterned paper that includes glitter or flocking.
-To use all those fun sledding shots, use one larger picture as a focal point and crop the others down to wallet size.
-Use scenery shots of snow covered trees to enhance your layout.

-Building a snowman
-Making snow angels
-Catching snowflakes on your tongue
-Having a snowball fight
-Shoveling sidewalks
-Drinking cocoa

-Let it Snow!
-Snow Angel
-Winter Wonderland
-"Snow" much fun.
-Snow Day
-Bundle Up
