Tutorial Monday: Winter ready layout (in summer!!!)

Hello crafty people!
It's another Monday again and that means a photo tutorial for you all.

I know it's summer in the most part of the world already but I was given a winter themed collection in my DT kit for this month :) Like Winter in July ;) Let's not forget that we also have a challenge to create projects for less than 30 minutes, okay? So that's double wham for me! :D

To make it to the 30-minute time constraint, I chose the things I wanted to use on my page beforehand which matched my chosen photos (thanks to my dear cousin Liz for always letting me use their photos). This saved me time deciding which one goes to what. I kept everything simple. Think of complementing colors and embellishments for your page. I thought to add some paper twine (I ended up using one only) and buttons.
I wanted to make a warm-feeling kind of layout so I chose the wood grain pattern paper. Then I cut a piece of another solid color background paper to mat all my layers, to make it stand out in contrast to the dark paper underneath. I also added a small silver doily to add interest and texture as well.
I arranged the strips of papers, banners and buttons, mentally taking note of all the positions because I will later move this around to adhere.
Added twine underneath the banners like so and the stickers too

I really loved how it turned out! The kit made it much easier to assemble the whole page. A total plus if you're in a hurry but wanted to scrap those winter photos and add to your album already.
Hope you liked my post!
