Scrapbook Class/Club - Tuesday, February 25

Here are the pages we made at Scrapbook Class this month....

This first page is the 2nd half of the spread we started last month.
It features the Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper - I just love this color combination....  Coastal Cabana, Baked Brown Sugar, Tangerine Tango and So Saffron!  We also put a fun chevron touch on the page with the Natural Chevron Ribbon (along the bottom of the page)!

Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper  132993  $10.95

 Natural 5/8" Chevron Ribbon  132982  $6.95

And how about the fun Banner Blast Stamp set and coordinating Banner Punch??  These are just two of the items you can get for FREE with any $50 order during Sale-a-Bration!!

We stamped many of the images from the Banner Blast set in those fun, coordinating colors (Coastal Cabana, Baked Brown Sugar, Tangerine Tango and So Saffron) and then punched them out with the Banner Punch to make that cute garland along the top of the page.  To string the banners together, we used the new Gold Baker's Twine.

We also added some texture to our page (this is something I sometimes find difficult to do with our Scrapbook Pages because of the size of the embossing folders - somehow I always want it to go all the way across the page!) with the Arrows Textured Impression Embossing folder.

Arrows Textured Impression Embossing Folder  132187  $7.95

This is the next page we made at class...

We got to use lots of fun items from the Sale-a-Bration catalog!  This page makes me ready for spring (which is REALLY wishful thinking when you live in Michigan!).

In the top corner of our page, we put a banner strip of the Sale-a-Bration Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper, and then added the fun page title "You can never have too much happy" from the Yippee Skippee set.  We also made some pretty, petite flowers with the Petite Petals Punch (using more of the Sweet Sorbet DSP) and the Bird Punch (using Pistachio Pudding card stock).

In the bottom corner of the page, we added some cute spring flowers using a number of punches:  the Pansy Punch in So Saffron card stock, the 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch in Crisp Cantalope card stock and the 3/4" circle punch (for this piece, we used the flower stamp from the Petal Parade Sale-a-Bration set and inked it in Coastal Cabana ink).  And then...  the best part about this page.....  that fun (fringe) grass made using our awesome, new Fringe Scissors!!  These scissors are a steal at only $9.95!!

Here is the last page we made this month....

We played with even more of the great (FREE!) Sale-a-Bration items!   

At the top of this page, we used the You're Lovely Sale-a-Bration Stamp Set.  We stamped the "I think you're Lovely" stamp once in Pistachio Pudding (and die-cut that with the Deco Labels Collection Framelits) and then stamped it again in Pool Party (and punched that out with the 1 3/4" circle punch).  We mounted that on another Crisp Cantalope piece die-cut with the Deco Labels Collection Framelits and then tied some Crisp Cantalope Baker's Twine (another FREE Sale-a-Bration item) around the Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper strip.  Finally, we added more "fringe" with our Fringe Scissors on the Pool Party piece.

This last element on our page was inspired by a card we made at the All-Occasion Card Class earlier this month.  I thought it would be a fun way to add a little message to the page - you could journal a little note on the 3x3 card and then tuck it inside the envelope!

We made the envelope using the Envelope Punch Board - just follow the instructions for an envelope that coordinates with a 3x3 card - it's so simple!  My only suggestion is to make sure not to push too hard with the scoring tool - you're working with designer series paper, which is not as heavy as card stock, so you don't want to cut a hole thru the paper while you're scoring!

We used our Petal Parade Stamp Set again to stamp the flowers on the little card (in Crisp Cantalope, Summer Starfruit, Pool Party ink) - I still think it's so great that those flowers coordinate perfectly with the design on this piece of Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper!  I might be easily impressed!
