Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!
This week I’m bringing you a wintery touch for the home; my “Frozen In Time” board using this month’s scrapbooking kit and mood board from Tres Jolie Kit Club. I ended up dubbing it “Frozen In Time” because I think it looks as though the butterflies and roses were caught in a freeze and are waiting for the spring thaw.
I used a 12” plywood circle from Creative Embellishments as my base, coated the edge with the Embellishment Mousse from the kit, added my paper, stenciling, and decorations…all in a few hours! Check out how I did it in my video below:
Isn’t the December Mood Board just beautiful? I love the look of winter. I’m not overly fond of being cold, but I have always thought it to be one of the most beautiful times of the year when you get bright sunlight on a wonderful, winter, snowy landscape.

Now for a few close-ups:
For my background snowflakes, I used some regular texture paste from my stash with the Snowflake stencil from this month’s kit then topped the, still wet, texture paste with some Distress Glitter (also from my stash) to add some shine to the background. On the flourishes, I used some gilding flakes from my stash to give them the metallic shine I was looking for, but to also make them “rough”,” compared to an embossed finish anyhow.
I thought these butterflies from my stash were the perfect addition for a couple of reasons. They are the perfect shade of blue, and well butterflies are generally associated with warm weather, these are already aptly named “Frozen” by ReneaBouquets!
To keep with my “Frozen In Time” theme, I added some of the same Distress Glitter I used on the background to the blue, Graphic 45, roses. I didn’t need to add any to the peach-y roses, because they already have a bit of glitter on them.
Thank you for joining us here at my corner! As always, I hope you enjoyed this project and it gave you some ideas of what can be done with the items from this month’s scrapbooking kit and the mood board. I’ll see you again next week!
