Hello Everyone! I'm still trying to figure out my schedule with my blog, but I think I'll post scrapbook layouts every Sunday (at least). I hear from customers that they have trouble finding scrapbook layouts using SU products, so I'll be sharing my pages with you!
Today's layout is what my scrapbook club did last month. Every Demonstrator runs her clubs a little bit differently, but in mine, my club gals can choose to do Cards & Projects, where each month they get a free class where they make 2 cards and a 3D project, or they can choose Scrapbooking, where in their free class they make a double page 12" x 12" layout. If you are local to Raleigh, NC & would like to come try out a class for free, let me know! If you are interested in a scrapbook kit club by mail, I offer Scapper's Express, where you will receive all the all the materials to make 6 coordinating scrapbook pages (12 x 12) and instructions and photos to make the predesigned layouts! You join for 6 months, paying just $25 per month, and you end up with 36 completed pages! Email me for more information!
I started with Kraft 12 x 12 cardstock, and ran several colors from the Earth Elements color family through the Big Shot using the Leaves #2 die, which I crumpled to give a more authentic look. I also used the Big Shot to make my title letters from chip board, which I then stamped in Versamark using the Bella Toile Background stamp and inked around the edges in Chocolate Chip classic ink. The small circle stamp on the left is from the Level 3 hostess set, The More The Merrier. Did you know that Stampin' Up Demonstrators get to buy a level 2 and a level 3 stamp set before the catalog is released? Just one of the many perks of being a demo! The big circle was cut with the Circle Scissor Plus, which is an amazing circle cutter that cuts any size circle between 1-6 inches. Very cool. The tree is from the Thoughts & Prayers stamp set stamped in Chocolate Chip. That tree is gorgeous! I love dimensional elements on my scrapbook pages, so I added a More Mustard button from the Playground collection, and tied a strip of chocolate chip cardstock through the button holes. What do you think?
