Frosted Kisses-DT project by Nanné

Living in Finland, we have long and cold winters.. Its mid February and were all freezing our tooshie's off..LOL  It hit -17F the other day, so it was nice to stay in the house, hide away in my craft room and create..
With it being so cold and the ground covered in snow, I wanted to use my Prima North Country paper collection to create a winter themed layout for my daughter..
this layout measures 12x12, but I used a 6x6 paper stack.. I love the smaller paper stacks when creating a layout that focus's on one corner, cause you won't be wasting paper, not have a lot of scraps left over and they are so inexpensive..

I used a lot of different techniques on this layout.. One being heat embossing (white snow flakes- Embossing Ink and white embossing powder) and I also did a lot of edge punching.. Made my own roses using some of the papers from the North Country collection, plus used my circles punches to punch out the snowflake images from the paper collection..

The photo is my daughter and her boyfriend Jooa, they have been together for over a year now..
You can see all of the edge punching, plus the punched snow flakes, tiny flowers and butterflies..
I brushed the edges with some distress ink so that it would stand out more..

close up of the title.. Used Zapdots to lift it off of the layout.

and finally my hand made roses.. I took three sheets of the coordinating papers from the collection and ran them through my cuttlebug along with Sizzix's Tattered Florals die.. once I had them put together, I added some Frosted Lace Stickles to the edges and then sprinkled them with white glitter.. I cut the leaves with my Cricut Imagine. 
The tiny flowers have a drop of white liquid pearls in the centers..

And for the supplies I used to make this layout:
