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!
Saturday, December 10th, is the last chance to come make this album with me! If you have been eyeballing it, now is the time to jump on it! Click HERE to sign up for the class on December 10th!
Last chance to bring your pictures and materials and do this sketch with me as well! Click here for this Sketch Class!
I can show you how to turn it into a page like this…
See you on the 10th of December! Enjoy your crafting!
I have been lacking a little bit of motivation lately, so I have not posted in quite a while. Part of it is due to a double wrist injury that has aggravated my old carpel tunnel…which hurts when I craft too much. It’s hard to get motivated to craft when it hurts.
It’s been about a month since the injury and I have now chosen to do some crafting anyway and just not overdo it! Taking it slow and easy!
I haven’t scrapbooked in a while, so I thought I would create a new page from our Yellowstone trip this summer. I have 3 gift albums, plus my own to make, so I figure I should get started. Plus, I needed a class for the Scrap4Less crop coming up on the 19th, here in Colorado Springs.
I found a sketch on Pinterest…where better to get inspiration and motivation??
And turned it into…
Instead of the dots, I used a sheet from Blooms & Bliss Designer Paper Series by Stampin’ Up! I like the neutral camping colors in it! (Sahara Sand, Island Indigo, Mint Macaron) I also used a couple of camping stamps from an older Stampin’ Up! set and some letter stickers from Thicker Stickers by American Crafts for the title. For the journaling, I used strips of white cardstock. To make the banner cuts on the strips of colored cardstock (Island Indigo, Mint Macaron, and Craft) running down behind the pictures, I used the banner punch from Stampin’ Up!…I really love how it keeps the cut even! When I used to cut it freehand, I never got it square, which bugged me most of the time! With this punch, it’s always square…or just off only if you want it that way!
I think the page came out very nicely. If I were to make any changes, I would probably distress the edges of the banner strips and the DSP. Other than that, I am pleased with it. I look forward to adding it to my album. I am also looking forward to teaching a class on turning a sketch into a scrapbook page! Come join me!
Blessings to All!
Wow, it has been awhile! I have been wrapped up in sorting through boxes and boxes of storage items repacking keep stuff and pricing and cleaning up yard sale stuff. I will be glad after next weekend when we are done with the yard sale and I can get back to my crafting!
I wanted to show you the fun Paper Pumpkin cards and projects we are doing next Sunday for my 4th Sunday Card class! I truly love getting my Paper Pumpkin each month and want to share with you the joy of new ideas and creative fun!
So, I did them as a slide show…
The class will be at my house…space is limited…sign up early! Would love to meet new people and make new crafting friends!! Comment below and I will get you my address. Since I live in Colorado Springs…this would only be for the local folks!
Enjoy your weekend!! *June
