Polar Bears at the Zoo layout for April Lilli!

 

I’m back with another layout using Simple Stories Winter Wonderland from the April Lilli Shop. I used it for a second layout in my December Daily because it was just perfect for a day I took the boys to the zoo. It’s another 2 page layout with a large photo on one side and pockets on the other. This one is all about Polar Bears! Everything I used is from the Winter Wonderland Collection (which is 20% off at the April Lilli Shop for the rest of the month) except these super cute alphabet stamps from the 1 Canoe 2 Hazelwood collection and some Thickers from this set from Oh Happy Life by Amy Tangerine.

 

 

I love the way this pocket turned out. I used a card cut from this 4×6 horizontal element page cut down to 3×4. Then I cut the quote out from the same sheet and made it fit into the smaller 3×4 size. Then I stamped the bit about polar bears with the Hazelwood alpha stamps because it was so much fun to see the polar bears all active in the winter!

 

There is a divider that came with my album in the middle of the layout with some stickers from the Winter Wonderland 12×12 sticker sheet and 4×6 stickers to mark the day and the Amy Tangerine thicker that says wild because I felt it worked here.

On the right side is a big focal image of two polar bears playing. We usually go to the zoo in the summer so it was really neat to see them so active! I used some of the ephemera pack, the washi, the enamel dots, the 4×6 stickers, the 6×12 chipboard stickersthe 12×12 sticker page and a few different papers from the Winter Wonderland collection to make this page.

Living somewhere where it’s so wintery I just love this collection and have been using it a bunch! There are so many great elements in in and I love all the word strips and stickers! I tend to use them in place of journalling so it’s great to have so many choices.
