Friends Scrapbook Layout

I finally had time to get some stamping done the past week, and it was so much fun! I especially had fun last Thursday through Saturday. My church has an annual Stampin' & Scrappin' Retreat at Camp Allendale in Trafalgar, IN. I got to spend 2 WHOLE days scrapbooking and stamping with some very good friends of mine! We had the best time! The 2 days went way too fast. Can't wait until next year!

The scrapbook layout below is one of the layouts being made at my Scrap In A Flash! camp this Saturday morning. To find out more about this event, please go to my EVENTS CALENDAR.

Family Page

This is a page that I made at an in-home workshop I did last Friday. I used the SAB set, Good Neighbors, and the SAB paper pack, Welcome Neighbors. I love the bright colors in the Welcome Neighbors DSP pack. I get a lot of my color combos from our designer papers.

The pictures are on a piece of 8-1/2" x 11" Old Olive card stock. I put a 1/2" x 11" piece of Bermuda Bay card stock along the left side of the Old Olive piece, and a 8-1/2" x 1/2" piece of Melon Mambo across the Old Olive piece as well. It's a good way to use up some scraps and bring some more color to the page.

New Sweetheart Set

I just got a big box of goodies yesterday! I got to use some of them to make this card. I used the Sweetheart set. It's made to work with the new heart treat cups, but I decided to use the new heart embosslit that is in the Occasions mini, instead. The embosslit embosses polka-dots all over the heart, and I sponged Real Red ink to make them stand out more. It's hard to tell in the picture, but if you look really close, you can see glitter on the designer paper. This paper pack has a glittered pattern on one side, and a non-glittered pattern on the other. There are a total of 6-double-sided designs, with 2 of each design. I just love this paper!

I almost forgot! I used this week's MojoMonday sketch #121 for this card.

Mojo Monday Sketch

Happy Friday, everyone! Today, I made a card using the Mojo Monday Sketch for this week (Week 120). I always love these sketches, but I never seem to have time to do it...especially the week it comes out. I actually got to do one the same week it came out!

I used the Vintage Vogue set and Extra Large Two-Step Bird Punch from the new Occasions Mini. I also used the Sale-A-Bration Scallop Trim Border Punch. I just love how this turned out. I've been dying to use my new bird punch, and I really think it looks great with this sketch. I stamped the background behind the bird using the flowery swirl stamp in the Vintage Vogue set and So Saffron ink. I stamped on scrap paper first, and then onto my circle to get a lighter ink image.

The scallop border around the circle was made by punching one long side of a 3/4" wide strip of Kraft card stock. Then, I put the strip through my paper crimper. I put Snail Adhesive all around the back edges of the Not Quite Navy circle. I attached the strip by wrapping it around the circle...using the crimps and bunching the crimps up as I went. I learned this from Jan Tink's tutorial on her blog. You have to check it out!

Vintage Vogue

Here is another Occasions mini set called, Vintage Vogue. This is a beautiful set, and is one that Shelli Garner, CEO of Stampin' Up!, has picked for her "Shelli's Collection." There is also a coordinating jumbo wheel that you can purchase to go along with it. I plan on using this set a lot. This is the first card I've made with it so far.

Also, Stampin' Up! has come out with new treat cups! I loved the circle ones, but they've now come out with heart-shaped treat cups. There is also a stamp set that goes with the treat cups called Sweetheart. They both work with the Full Heart Punch that is on p. 186 in the Idea Book & Catalog. I ordered both the Heart Treat Cups and the Sweetheart set, and should get it sometime next week. I can't wait! To see the stamp set and heart treat cups, you can either CLICK HERE, or click on the icon for them in the right column of this blog. Quantities of the Heart Treat Cups for SU's first shipment are limited, so if you want these items for Valentine's Day, you'll need to order them right away!
