The month of January can evoke all kinds of images for those of us who live in the height of winter this month- snowmen, sleds going down a steep bank, or simply hills of glistening white snow. Typically, these images pair perfectly with cool tones: blues, turquoise and grey. Laura Hager used these cool tones in her January exclusive kit to document a recent winter trip with gorgeous snowy images. Let’s take a look!
Hey! Laura here! I don’t know about you, but I love January! It’s so refreshing and inspiring to reflect on achievements and create new goals. The January kit and extras are great, because they capture this wonderful time of year.
Living in Phoenix, AZ, I don’t get to experience snow very often. My boyfriend and I decided to drive up to Flagstaff to play in the snow for a day. The “weather report” card from the January Exclusive Kit was so perfect for documenting the snowy weather. I used the Dated Stamp set and Olivia Alphabet Stamp set to document the temperature on the card. There was several embellishments in the pretty cobalt blue color, so I decided to make that the main color for the layout, and it tied in perfectly with the blue tone of the mountains in the background of my photos.
Journaling is a big part of my albums, because I like to include all the details from my life. The pretty blue and turquoise 4″ x 6″ tag in the January Exclusive Kit was perfect for adding my journaling to this layout. I used the white Letter and Number Stickers to spell out the name of the city, then, I used my typewriter to type out my journaling onto vellum and attached it to the card.
My favorite add-on item this month is the Puffy Heart Stickers sheet. There are so many great colors and they are just so cute! I added a little cluster of them in the corner of my photo. I love the contrast of white snow with the bright blue hearts.
I had so much fun working with the January Exclusive Kit and the extra embellishments. All of the pieces are so bright and colorful, perfect for documenting the excitement of the New Year, and a day in the snow!
