Frosty Festivities Christmas & Winter, Scrapbook Layouts

A Challenge – To Add a Little Frosting

(This post is part of my Frosty Festivities 2013 Blog Event)

I’m sure you know I love a little sparkle. Maybe a lot of sparkle. Everywhere! I’m hoping a little glitter-love is rubbing off on you all, and eventually the whole world will shimmer like a Christmas star! If you’re not convinced yet then maybe this challenge will convince you to have a go?

I’m counting frosting as anything shimmery, shiny, or sparkly. Go forth and make those projects twinkle!

The winner of this challenge will receive this prize:

Challenge to Add Frosting Prize

Two Packs of Kars gems, two lengths of trim, and a pack of blue & green sequins.

To encourage you to get started, here’s a layout which has been suitably frosted, including using some of the same gems and trims which I bought for myself…


Wonderland Layout by Jennifer Grace

I love this little lane near our house, which looks like a wonderland when it’s covered in snow! It’s the first place I go when I wake up to a world of white.

If you look closely you’ll see that I super-shimmered this layout by edging some of the papers with glitter. The 11″ grey piece (Basic Grey 25th & Pine ‘Mistletoe Junction’) has silver glitter all around the edge, and there’s a piece of light blue patterned paper (Crate Paper Sleigh Ride) behind the photo which has white glitter around the edges:

I stitched some silver trim along the top of this ‘let it snow’ card, and then layered up more snowflakes on top of it:

With the usual gems scattered around!

Scrapbook about a local place you go to in the winter (or your garden covered with snow)

  1. I love to read the things you do and then scroll back and look at it. When you describe the things you did, it brings more of it in focus. This is a very calming piece.

  2. as you probably know I don’t usually do a lot of frosting, but at this time of the year, I feel happy to bring a bit of sparkle….. it is Christmassy and definitely goes with a winter wonderland!


  3. Beautiful layout, I don’t usually do much with glitter and gems, but for holiday layouts, it adds such a nice touch! I just watched How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days and when I read your blog post title, “frost yourself” was all I could think of! 🙂


  4. What a brilliant way to add some shimmer & shine by edging the papers – I have some wonderful tinsel glitter that I have never used but now I think I know what to do with it! Thx :~)


  5. Love the layered chippies and the frosted edges, beautiful – but Jennifer I think the challenge wording is for the “Embrace the Busy” challenge??? This challenge is to add some frosting, shimmer, sparkle or shine to a project isn’t it? Can’t wait to have a go, I love sparkles too 🙂


  6. anyone who knows me knows I am up for some glitter and sparkle so I am pinning this to remind me to get to this challenge. your sparkly layout is the perfect inspiration.
