Color Spots Scrapbook Challenge: Ice Castles

Winter is in full swing in parts of the world. Snow covered yards, snow capped mountains and afternoon hot chocolate when the kiddos arrive home from school. The founder of Ice Castles lives here in Utah, a few hours away from where I live. I’ve been in awe of his work for the past few years and drew inspiration from his talent. Here are a few photos that I found on the Ice Castles website and Instagram feed. 

Sadly, we haven’t had much snow here in the valley. I (KimR+) began playing with the one snow photo that I have from Christmas Day. Yup,  my kids built 2 snow people from the 1/2″ of snow we received over night. It wasn’t coming together for me, so I began working on my first Project Life spread of 2018. The colors worked so well. I think I am now hooked on Katies new Monthly Memories series she will be creating through out the year!Supplies used: Arctic Whites Paper Pack No. 02Cold Outside Element PackLoosely Labeled Dates No. 02Monthly Memories Layered Template Pack No. 01, Readymade Layers Winter Borders No 7, Roughed Up Pocket Cards: Striped No. 08Sequins Scatters SkyStitched Word Strip Sentiments No. 02Sweet Rose Bay Element PackVintage Flashcards: NumbersWatery Washes No. 04 Brushes and Stamps

Deborrah (DivaMom96) created a fun winter page inspired by the cold winter they had several years ago. She pulled out various blues from the photos and used silver glitter that shimmers like the Ice Castles. Supplies used: Winter Wonderland Layered TemplateFrosted Fun Element PackFrosted Winter Solids Paper Pack

Hillarey (hillareyd) was up to the icy challenge as well! She created this fun page to document the cold winter they are currently experiencing. I adore the large snowflakes and the various blues.
