Festive Farmhouse Scrapbook Pages

These are two of the pages we'll be making at our next Scrapbook Class this month.

I've had so much fun designing these pages that can be filled with holiday memories :).

I hope you enjoy.........

We start our first page with a Cherry Cobble base, then added 2 strips of the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper (DSP) to the side of our page.  That red and gray check pattern is one of my favorites in this DSP pack (well, actually, I think all of the plaid patterns in this pack are pretty awesome!)

 We also added a piece of Basic Black card stock to the center of our page - the perfect backdrop for those holiday memories!

For a little extra fun, we added a strip of the Striped Burlap Trim to our basic black piece, then tied a Cherry Cobbler Cotton Twine bow and added it to our burlap trim.

Striped Burlap Trim  147889
Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine  147888

Next, we stamped our deer in Gray Granite ink using the Dashing Deer Stamp Set and die-cut him with the coordinating Detailed Deer Thinlits.  There are so many fun reindeer images in this set, and all of them can be cut out with the coordinating thinlits.  You can buy the stamp set and thinlits separately, or save 10% when you buy them in the bundle.

We also die-cut that cute flower/bow using the Detailed Deer Thinlits, adhered it to our reindeer and added a pearl to the center.  Then, we layered him on top of a Whisper White circle and Basic Black scallop circle die-cut with the Layering Circle Framelits.

Detailed Deer Thinlits  147915
Dashing Deer Bundle  149934/149935
Pearl Basic Jewels  144219
Layering Circle Framelits  141705

Here's a look at our 2nd coordinating page....

This time, we started with a Basic Black base and added another couple of strips of the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper to the bottom of our page (there's another one of those fun plaid patterns!).

We also added 2 pieces of Cherry Cobbler card stock to the side of our page.

At the top corner of this page, we embossed a piece of Gray Granite card stock with the Corrugated Embossing Folder.

Next, we stamped "Fill the Season with Happiness" in Cherry Cobbler ink using the Peaceful Noel Stamp Set and die-cut this circle with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

We also punched 2 Cherry Cobbler sprigs and added them to our sentiment, along with 3 Silver Metallic Pearls.

Finally, we tied a Cherry Cobbler Cotton Twine bow around our corrugated piece and adhered it to our page.

Peaceful Noel Stamp Set  147694
Stitched Shapes Framelits  145372
Sprig Punch  148012
Metallic Pearls  146282

If you'd like to make these pages with us at Scrapbook Class, this class generally meets on the last Tuesday of the month.  Since the last Tuesday is on Christmas day, we'll have this class on Wednesday, December 26 instead (anytime from 5-9pm).

Product of the Week - The Wishing You Well Stamp Set

I hope you all had a great weekend!

I was out of town all weekend with my daughter, Lilly, and 2 nieces, Emma and Brynn, at a Tap Event they were participating in.  They had rehearsals and classes all day Friday, a tech and lighting rehearsal all day Saturday and then performed in 2 shows on Sunday!!

Image may contain: 3 people, including Lilly Frillici and Shelly Howe Buschle, people smiling, people standing
Emma, Lilly and Brynn

The shows were great!!  I have to say...  I didn't realize how much I enjoyed watching Tap dancing.  These kids were all really entertaining!!

But.... Lilly is exhausted!!  And, so am I!!  In between running them from place to place, I fit in a bunch of Xmas shopping - it feels good to have gotten a lot accomplished :).
