But First Hot Cocoa | Ali Skifton

Happy weekend my fellow scrapbookers! It is Ali here with you today sharing a cozy winter layout. Snow is on it’s way in Wisconsin and I am ready for the Hot Cocoa Season.

I used the Simple Stories collection Holly Days to back up the cut file. I used the same paper for the title and embellished the center of my letters with enamel dots. I added a cute hot cocoa mug die cut to the top of the title.

I had so much fun with the hot cocoa mug. I backed it with cute pink, red and white stripe paper and used white glitter paper for the whip cream. I just love the sparkle it gives to the cut file. I embellished my mug with a poinsettia and layered a cute bear with a candy cane in his hand on top of the mug.

As always, I added foam tape to the back of the cut file and gave the layout some dimension. I tucked part of the title and hot coca mug into the snow I made out of glitter paper. It gives the layout a cozier feeling.

Well I am going to make myself a cup of hot cocoa and sit by a fire. Thanks for joining me today and happy creating!

Love, Ali xoxo
