Stuck @ Home

We don't get much snow in the Northwest, much to my displeasure! In mid January, the weathermen began forcasting a big snow storm. More times than not, our weathermen are wrong. This time, they got it right and then some!. Western Washington was hit with more snow in a 24 hour period of time than we get for a whole season (or 2). School was cancelled for 3 days and we stayed hunkered down in the house.

Our February Design Team assignment was to document activities we do at home during the winter. Our snowbound days was a perfect opportunity to grab the camera and snap some pictures of what we did while "Stuck @ Home"!

The outside border of photos are all 2 1/8 inch square. I resized them in Photoshop Elements to the right size and punched them out with a wonderful punch I got at! My husband took the picture of our house on his cell photo and sent it to my phone, I just got a new iphone and spent time during our housebound days playing with it.. I had just installed the Instagram app on the phone and transformed our house picture.

I journalled around the edges of my background mat. And my title words are cut from digital zoom photos of the snow falling and of my wind sock in the back yard.

Planning this page was a fun distraction while being "Stuck @ Home"!

I sure would love to be stuck in such a home too! Beautifully done. The journaling adds such a personal touch. I really like it.

Thanks for all the lovely comments! Linda--I used the White Metallic Grid paper from ( for my background. I created my letters with my cricut and gypsy--I welded the background letters together in black and then cut out the top letters out of my photo. I don't have plans for a companion page since I used up all my photos!!!

Love the layout, title and handwritten journaling!

I cheered "totally," because this one looks totally awesome! The center focal point is sooo cool, with the journaling around the edge, the lettering, the date on the @, and the color of the snow photo of your home. I'd like to know how you made the letters, what color of grid paper you used, and whether you are going to do another page to go with this one.

I love this layout and plan to scraplift so be forewarned! I love the large matte on the center photo that you then journaled in - very creative! And of course I love the letters - they almost look airbrushed!

Love the layout and the story behind it! We've had less snow (and more ice) than usual thus far this winter - time for a 'snow day' that actually involves serious snow rather than icy rain.

Love the wrap around journaling, how you placed the title around the focal shot, and the date detail on the at symbol. Very nice!

Sarah great layout! The title totally says it all. Liked the journaling around the mat and the color of the house photo.
