Wood Words Scrapbook Pages

These are 2 of the scrapbook pages we made at class last month...

I just love designing these pages....  It's fun to use elements from cards and other ideas I see on Pinterest and try to incorporate them into Scrapbook Pages.

I like to start with either a suite of products or a pack of Designer Series Paper and let the inspiration come from there!

Can you guess which product suite I used on these pages??  Read on to learn about it!

We start our first page with a Whisper White base, then added a full sheet of Night of Navy cardstock to our page.  We also added a strip of the Burlap Ribbon along the bottom of our Night of Navy piece.

Next, we stamped some fun (Real Red) hearts along the side of our page using the Wood Words Stamp Set.  I love the texture that these hearts seem to have - kind of like they've been weathered a bit.

Then, we die-cut our crate using the Wood Crate Framelits and a piece of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.  I think these crates are just too cute!  And...  you can purchase the Wood Crate Framelits and Wood Words Stamp Set separately, or save 10% when you buy them in the bundle.

We stamped some pretty flowers on our Whisper White piece using the Daisy Delight Stamp Set.  First, we stamped the flower outlines in Crushed Curry Ink, then the color/wash inside the outlines in Daffodil Delight ink and then the stems in Old Olive Ink.

We also stamped "Farmer's Market" (from the Wood Words Stamp Set) in Night of Navy Ink and punched it out with a 1 1/4" Circle Punch.

The finishing touch is that cute Copper Trim bow :).

Here's a look at our next page....

This time we stamped some fun polka dots in Night of Navy ink (also from the Wood Words Stamp Set) on our Whisper White base, then added a full sheet of Real Red card stock to our page.

Next, check out this fun element on our 2nd page...

It almost looks like something you could put on top of a canning jar :).

First, we added a 1/2 sheet of the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper to the bottom of our page.

Next, we stamped that fun rooster and "Hello Friend" in Real Red ink.  Both images can be found in the Wood Words Stamp Set.  We die-cut our rooster with the Wood Crate Framelits and punched out our sentiment with the Classic Label Punch.

We also stamped those gorgeous flowers in Night of Navy ink (from the Wood Words Stamp Set) and die-cut this circle with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

Then, we die-cut a Real Red scallop circle and a Night of Navy circle using the Layering Circle Framelits.  We layered all of this together and added it to a Delicate White Doily.

A couple of finishing touches complete our look...

-a bow tied with Linen Thread and a Brights (Real Red) Enamel Shape to hold it in place

-and a little strip of that super-cute Night of Navy Gingham Ribbon!

Watercolor Christmas... Oh Joy

Here's a swap card I made recently featuring LOTS of new Holiday Catalog product!  It was so fun to go through my pre-order and decide which product I was going to use on this swap card - I especially love the black and white striped ribbon and the pretty cursive font on this stamp set!

Read on to learn all about it......

We start our card with a Cherry Cobbler Card base, then added a layer of Basic Black Card Stock, followed by a layer of the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) to our card.

This Merry Music DSP is a lightweight paper printed with traditional Christmas carols in English, French and German.  You actually receive 24 sheets of DSP, 4 each of 6 double-sided designs, so you get LOTS of paper in this pack of DSP!

Next, I stamped "Oh Joy" in Cherry Cobbler ink using the Watercolor Christmas Stamp Set.  This stamp set is also featured in the Watercolor Christmas Project Kit.  You can create handmade Christmas cards in minutes with this stamp set and super-cute, super-simple project kit!  And...  like I said earlier, I just love the cursive font in this stamp set!

I die-cut the Whisper White Oval and the Cherry Cobbler Scallop Oval behind it using the Layering Oval Framelits.  I am telling you...  I use my Layering Circles, Squares and Ovals Framelits ALL the time!  They are a must-have if you have a Big Shot!
Layering Oval Framelits  141706

Finally, I added that awesome black and white 7/8" Striped Ribbon behind the oval and sentiment and topped the "i" with a Rhinestone!  So fun!  The ribbon actually has wire on each side so it works great for making bows, too!  This is going to be a super-popular ribbon for both Halloween and Christmas this year, I think!
