Scrapbook Class - April 19, 2012

Here are pictures of the pages we made at Scrapbook Class on Thursday night!!

The Concord Crush page was inspired by a card I found on Dawn Olchefske's blog last year.  We made the card at a class last summer, and I thought it would be fun  to re-create it on a scrapbook page so that I could keep it forever!!  The second page is a Lucky Limeade base with a strip of DSP from the Cheerful Treat DSP pack.

Here is a close-up of the stamped images.  We stamped the sentiment "Happiness" from the Loving Thoughts stamp set from the Occasions Mini (this stamp set is only available until April 30th! - place your order today if you like this set!).  I love how the Cheerful Treat Designer Series Paper was used to inspire this card (and I LOVE the color combination - Concord Crush, Melon Mambo, and Lucky Limeade).  The cute birdie and branch are from the Best of Everything Stamp set.  We added a couple of punched flowers from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and finished it all off with the Concord Crush 1/2" Poly-stitch ribbon - I am really going to miss that ribbon!!  If you are going to miss it too, be sure to order it before it's gone forever (on May 31)!!

I hadn't used this Big Shot die in a while (the Flower Folds Bigz XL Die) - I thought it worked great on this page!  The stamped circle in the center of the flower is from the Posy Punch Hostess stamp set - another item that will retire on May 31!!

This last page is one that coordinates with the 3rd page from last month's pages.  It features a Wild Wasabi base with Pacific Point butterflies cut with the Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die.

I hadn't used the Hat Pins from the Occasions Mini yet and remembered seeing a flag made with them on a card I saw at Leadership, so I thought I'd give it a try!  I love being able to incorporate these fun items in my Scrapbook Page because I know I'll be able to enjoy them years after a card would probably have hit the recycle bin!  I also had to use those super-cute Summer Smooches brads to finish off the page - what fun!!

I hope you enjoyed these pages this month!  Please let me know if you'd like to attend my Scrapbook Class.  We meet the third Thursday of every month at 7pm - I'd love to have you join us at anytime!!  This class is also a club.  If you join the 10 month club, you'll receive the awesome hostess benefits one month during your club membership.  In addition, I am holding a Club Member drive right now!!  If you decide to join the club, you'll receive 4 FREE hand-made cards from me (you choose the cards) and be entered into a drawing for a chance to win any item out of the catalog valued at $39.95 or less!!  Please let me know if you'd like more information on this or the other two clubs (All-Occasion Card Making Club or Big Shot/3D Project Club) I am currently running.

Hope to see you soon!
