My first assignment with the 2peas Creative Team was to create two Layouts using Betsy Tuma's New Sweater Weather Papers and Alphas. They were really neat to use. The papers were full of texture and the patterns reminded me of retro Christmas Sweaters. (I'm sure my Dad had one or two.) The alphas were really cool too and not only is there a set of patterned alphas that cooridinate with the papers there is also a set of solid alphas.
Here are the two kits that I used in my projects. She also has a Sweater Weather Solids and extras kit that all co ordinate. Not to mention that last week she released Sweater Weather-Hers. You can check them out at 2peas in a bucket or just click the preview.
The first Layout is of our beloved Casey. I love how when I'm busy working on something at the computer he lays nearby all curled up. The photo had a lot of texture and warmth so I wanted to make sure that I captured that in my layout and the sweater weather papers really helped me do that.
This is an older photo of my youngest dd. It's always been one of my favourite photos and I love how she looks so bundled up. Once again the sweater weather papers seemed perfect for the feeling I wanted to convey.
