Scrapbook Sunday for the Creative Crew

Sarah 2013


Here is my last submission for January’s Creative Crew challenge.  We were asked to make a scrapbook page following a sketch.  I love to make scrapbooks and there is no better subject than my children!

CCREW0114SF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM — Scrapbook focus: Whether you’re digital or traditional, or even if you don’t really scrap at all – maybe you prefer a framed art piece or a This & That journal – Whatever you decide show us how you would use the attached layout.

One note about this is how the vellum takes the color of the cardstock behind it but adds more interest to it with the silver stripes.  There are other patterns in the packet of designer vellum as well.  You should be able to see that there is a heart made with another vellum that has hearts.  It is so pretty to use.  The silver Encore ink just adds to the elegance of this page, which is exactly what I was hoping to achieve.  My daughter, Sarah, is 16 and is such a lovely young woman now.  This page really helps convey that.

It’s All in the Details

  • Stamps: Stippled Blossoms, Best of Love, Perfectly Penned
  • Paper: Pink Pirouette, Brushed Silver, Silver Fancy Foil Designer Vellum, Pool Party
  • Paper Size: 12″ x 12″
  • Ink: Silver Metallic Encore
  • Accessories: Tasteful Trim Bigz XL, Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, Corner Rounder, Framelits: Starburst, Circles Collection, Hearts Collection, Silver 1/8″ Ribbon

Well, I can’t wait to share my experiences at Stampin’ Up!’s Leadership convention with you!  This is my very first convention and I will try to bring it to life for you.  Until then,

Keep calm and craft on!

Snow Day in January

Let It Snow 2


This is project #3 from the Creative Crew challenge this month:

CCREW0114HF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM — Holiday focus: January is National Hobby month, share something crafty besides a card, it can be a wreath, a banner, a tablescape, or picture frame, a headband, some jewelry, something crocheted with our crochet thread, it’s totally up to you.

I hope you have been able to look at all of the really cool projects there now.  Here is the link to see them all.  There are many very inspirational projects there, so I hope you will take a look.  Now, the challenge was to make something crafty besides a card.  This is right up my alley!  I found this stand on a substantial sale at one of the craft stores a few months back.  I had no idea what I would do with it then, but this challenge made me think of making a display for each month.  It would also be perfect for photos but I wanted to use my Snow Day stamp set one more time!  He looks so happy in the snow, doesn’t he?

It’s All in the Details

  • Stamps: Snow Day, Best of Snow, Four Frames, ABC-123 Sketch Alphabet & Numbers
  • Paper: Basic Black, Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Smoky Slate, Silver Metallic Encore
  • Paper Size: 6″ x 6″
  • Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Silver Metallic Encore, Melon Mambo, Early Espresso

Here it is in the stand.  Cute, eh?

I hope you like my project today!  Did it inspire you to make something “crafty but not a card?”  I hope you will leave me a comment today, and I would love for you to sign up for email notifications as well as “like” my Facebook page!  I hope you are having fun in your craft room during these cold days of winter.  Come back soon so I can show you my 4th and last Creative Crew project for January.  Until then,

Keep Calm and Craft on!
