Random Fact #1 - I don't ski

I decided quite a while ago that I wanted to start a "Random Fact" series of layouts about myself.  Layouts with little tidbits of information that make me, me. "I don't ski" is my first.  (Yay for finally starting!)

I used the May 2012 Studio Calico kit for this layout and some American Crafts POW glitter paper.  I used charcoal glitter paper for the background and silver for the snowflakes punched with a Martha Stewart punch.

I used the rest of my Heidi Swapp memory file that came in the kit, so my layout has three layers of photos and journaling.  I used the rest of the memory file in my layout here.  When I saw the memory file in the kit, I initially thought that I would have no idea how to make it work on a page.  Now I am in love with the different possibilities of layering on a page!

I also ended up loving the Heidi Swapp mistable letters that were in the Studio Calico kit.  I loved being able to mist them whatever color matched best with my Mr. Huey mists.

So, this layout is about something that despite my best efforts to learn (and owning a ski condo in Vermont!), I just don't do.  I already have a topic chosen for Random Fact #2!

Have a great week everyone!


  1. See, I see this as me...if I went skiing I would be sliding to the hillside on my bottom...I can control that somewhat. LOL great LO!

  2. What a great idea for layouts!! :) And you did a great job with that page.

  3. I wish we had snow here down in Texas I would try to ski, lol. I love the glitter paper it really gives me a feel of the snow.

  4. I'm learning how to ski (Brazilian girl here...)and it looks pretty cool.

    Loved all the POW on your page!

  5. first, this is an awesome topic. (random facts!) and this page totally makes me smile. :)
