Hello! Happy, happy Friday!!
Here is a mini scrapbook I have been working on for Scrap4Less! I will be doing a class on it February 12th, here in Colorado Springs. You can Sign Up Here. Let me know you saw it here first and I will have a little surprise for you!
This book pulls out and is called a flip book because the pages flip as you pull. It is from Teresa Collins. The heart punch is from Stampin’ Up!, as well as the number stamps. They are actually retired and are called Big Deal Numbers. The letter stickers are from Sn@p. Some of the stickers used inside are from WeRMemoryKeepers. The heart banner is from a Sizzix BigZ. The paper is My Mind’s Eye, if I remember correctly. I really need to learn to write these things down before I cut things up! All these items, that are not SU!, are items sold at Scrap4Less once a month at the 2 day crop. You really should come check it out if you live in, or are visiting, Colorado Springs!
I won’t show the inside pages until after the class…I don’t want to spoil the surprise! There are 14 pages to declare your love for your spouse, child, parent…whoever you love and can describe it in 14 different ways! I made one, in the past for my husband, at a class back in Tucson. I still have it! I think it is in the Valentine’s box. If it is, I will share it with you after I get that container out of storage. It is what inspired me to create this album for a class.
Just a little FYI…because you all know I am a Stampin’ Up! demo and most of this is not SU! The supplies I use are mainly ones that Monique sells at Scrap4Less. Occasionally, I add something from Stampin’Up!, like the heart, however, it is her store and her crop, so I use her materials.
That’s it for today! Need to do more creating, so I have more to post! Staying healthy will be top priority! I trust you are all healthy!
Enjoy your day! Have fun this weekend! I know I will…I will be crafting and watching movies!
I am so ready for a scrappin’ weekend!! Looking to do more pages in my sister’s Yellowstone album. For now though, you will have to settle for a little more My Mind’s Eye layouts.
Again, I see I forgot to take the picture size off before taking the pictures…oops!
These are Circus papers from My Mind’s Eye. I think it was called Up, Up, and Away. They were definitely fun pages to work with! Bright colors and fun mustaches! i am partial to mustaches. You’ll know why if you saw one of my earlier post with a picture of Santa and my husband. Go check it out!
I don’t think I need to go through each page. The single pictures are the pages on their own so you can look at them closer to see what I did. The 2 page layouts are to show you what pages go together.
I will tell you that I used as much of the paper set that I could in various ways. I cut out “embellishments” from the papers and used as much of the scraps as banners and back grounds as I could. I am a huge believer in not wasting paper!! I pop dotted embellishments to give the pages more dimension and added layers as well. And, I used the stamp set that came with the set. There were no stickers this time, that is why I used the paper itself.
This paper set really challenged me on so many levels to get out of my comfortable little box and to give it a go to use as much of the actual paper as I could! I like how it all turned out! Almost wish I got to keep them!
Enjoy your crafting time!!
More page designs from My Mind’s Eye for Scrap4Less! And it looks like I forgot to take off the picture measurements before taking these photos. I don’t have the layouts anymore, so you’ll just have to forgive me!
Somehow, I did not write down the names of the paper sets for all these My Mind’s Eye papers. However, the next time I see her, I will be sure to ask for them so that I can add them here…then you can find them where ever you are!
This is actually just a 2 page layout and the smaller pictures are just each page on its own to see closer. These were photos for sending to her to post for classes, not for the blog. Later I figured I could put them on the blog as well. It is my creation, so why not share it.
Using all this very patterned paper was seriously pushing me out of my comfortable box! Although, this one looks like I used more, but I didn’t…I folded pieces of the paper over to show more patterns, but it’s not a ton of paper. Tricky and cool, right?! They 2 ‘yellow’ pages are the base and the torn pieces are on top with corners and edges folded. Then I used the striped paper to make places for pictures and added some stamped images that went with this paper set! Easy-peasy!
And that’s all for today, folks! Enjoy your crafting!

See you on the 10th of December! Enjoy your crafting!
I was going through the pictures in my Media Library for this blog and discovered a bunch of pictures of projects that I had not shared yet. So, I figured, I should take the time to share them! I did put the effort in to them, didn’t I, so why not!?
This first set of pictures was of pages I designed for Scrap4Less, a store and crop group that meets every 2nd Friday of the month and the following Saturday. The lady in charge asked me to take papers and design pages. I have showcased one other set months ago and figured I would show you the rest!
The paper is My Mind’s Eye. I have no idea anymore of the name of it. (if I figure it out, I will add it) I know she still has these papers and would be happy to sell them if you came shopping! You can click on the Scrap4Less and it will take you to her site.
I really had fun with this very blingy paper, but be forewarned…I had glitter everywhere for a while. The larger picture was a layout where I used layers of squares. I cut a large square out of the main paper, then put another paper behind it. Then I cut 2 smaller squares out of the cut piece in graduated sizes. I pop dotted the middle square and put black on the smallest one to put a picture on. She wanted no pictures on the layouts, but this would be perfect for wedding or a formal night! I really like how it turned out! I added some of the stickers that came with the set of papers.
The next page, with the calendar look, was a fun one, too. I wanted to keep as many of the numbers uncovered as I could. and used a collage of pictures and stickers to give it the color blocking look. The ‘Love’ was a sticker and I put it on black figuring it could house a picture there sliding it under the word before sticking it down.
The page with the banner was fairly simple because the main embellishment was already on the page. So I created around it! I “hung” the banner with a piece of hemp string and then used the sticker banner pieces over it. Then a few pieces of scrap paper cut with banner ends and put sideways under the pictures with a sentiment was all it needed. The paper was glittery and didn’t need anything fancy with it.
I trust you like it! Happy crafting!
Here is the other class that I will be teaching at the Scrap4Less Crop this weekend! Isn’t it darling?! This would make a great gift to someone you love or someone who can’t be there for the holidays! It will fit about 30 or so pictures. It is an SEI 6×6 album and I used Snap photo holders on the pages to add more pictures!
