Harvest Meadow Scrapbook Pages


Hi Friends!


I've got some beautiful, fall Scrapbook pages to share with you today :).

I started this first page with a Soft Succulent base, then added 2 strips of the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper (DSP) to the top of our page, as well as with 2 pieces of Crumb Cake card stock along the side of the page.  I have to admit....  I wasn't super-excited about this DSP when I first saw it in the catalog.  I tend to link the more traditional, deep fall colors, but..... I have to say that I absolutely LOVE this paper now that I've played with it for a while!  You can check out all of the soft, subtle imagery on this DSP below.

You can click on any of the images below to take you directly to my Online Store.

Next, I stamped our awesome Birch background stamp in Crumb Cake ink on Basic White card stock and layered it on top of a piece of Misty Moonlight card stock.

Then, I die-cut three leaves from Misty Moonlight, Crumb Cake and Soft Succulent card stock using the Stitched Leaves Dies and added them to the birch piece.

I also stamped "Happy Fall, y'all!" (from the Banner Year Stamp Set) in Soft Succulent ink on Basic White card stock and die-cut it with the label from the Pretty Pillowbox Dies.

Finally, I added 2 Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots to the birch piece, along with a Very Vanilla Diamond Weave bow.  

It looks like the Brushed Metallic Dots are not orderable right now, but the Stampin' Up! website says they hope to have them available next week!

Here's a peak at our 2nd page......

This time, I started with a Crumb Cake base and added 2 more strips of the Harvest Meadow DSP to the side of the page, along with a half-sheet of Misty Moonlight card stock. 

I just had to add a little more Very Vanilla Diamond Weave Ribbon to the bottom of the Misty Moonlight piece, too.  I really love the stitched look of this ribbon!

Next, I stamped "Know that you are loved" in Crumb Cake ink and the sunflower in Misty Moonlight ink on Basic White card stock using the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set.

I die-cut the sentiment using one of the labels in the Ornate Frames Dies and the sunflower and the sprigs using the Sunflower Dies.

Finally, I added 2 more Brushed Metallic Adhesive Dots to the page, along with a Just Jade & Gold Braided Ribbon bow.

I'd love to have you join us at our next Scrapbook Class!

Our next class meets on Tuesday, November 30.

Stampin' Up! Sweet Stockings Christmas Card

 Hi Friends!

Here's a simple Christmas card I made for a swap I participated in for the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog.  I LOVE participating in swaps!!!!  It's such a great way to get lots of ideas :).

I decided to use a fun fold for my swap this time.  I started my card with a Cherry Cobbler base and scored it at 2 1/8" and 4 1/4".  I also added a piece of Basic White card stock to the inside of the card.

Next, I adhered a piece of Sweet Stockings Designer Series Paper to the front flap of the card.  Those little animals popping out of the tops of the stockings are just too cute!

Then, I stamped "May this be a Christmas....." in Cherry Cobbler ink on Basic White card stock using the Christmas to Remember Stamp Set.  The sentiment, along with the Cherry Cobbler label behind it, were die-cut with the Seasonal Labels Dies.

Finally, I added an Evening Evergreen Chevron Weave Ribbon to the sentiment.

Sweet and simple!!
