Progressive Scrapbook Page

I am so excited about today's "Design of the Day", a progressive scrapbook page.  I just heard about these, where have I been?  One more great design from Susanne, thanks for teaching me so much!

A progressive scrap book page is really one page that could be used for three different size scrapbooks.  The most popular size scrapbooks are 6x6, 8x8, and 12x12.  All three of these sizes are represented in this one page.  You start by building a 6x6 page.  Then you move on and build an 8x8 and add your 6x6 to it.  Finally you design a 12x12 and add the previous 8x8 to it. 

Those of you that do not like to scrapbook, can take the 6x6 and fold in in half to make a 3x6 card, so cool, I just love it.  Check out the photos below and you can see how this page, Susanne taught me, can be built one step at a time.
This is the 6x6.
Stampin' Up! products used on this page include, "Things I Love" stamp set, ticket corner punch, Play Date designer paper and Real Red, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White smooth card stock.

This is the 8x8.  See the 6x6 on the page?  ;)
In addition to the items listed above this page includes Stampin' Up! products;
Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive and So Saffron Smooth Card Stock.

This is the 12x12.
OK, now you can see all three sizes layered on top of each other.  Neat Huh?!
Additional Stampin' Up! products used on this page include;
1-3/4" Circle Punch and the 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch.

I love this new scrapbooking technique and can't wait to try it with other colors and papers!

Thanks and have a great day.

Mother's Day Gifts

Hi Everyone, today I would like to share my Mother's Day gifts from my loving and sweet daughter.  She is so artistic and made these wonderful gifts for me in school.  The "Design of the Day" is the Mother's Day card she made me at a school function where she worked with middle school girls, teaching card making.  Susanne my upline demonstrator with Stampin' Up! is the card designer.  Thanks, Madilynn and Susanne!!!!

Home made gifts and cards are the best, that's just one of the reasons I love my job!

Around the edge of the plate Madilynn etched,
"You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hid." Matthew 5:14,
I wish I could get the camera to pick up the etching ;(

This plate says,
"He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name.  Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit." Psalm 147:4-5

These gifts make me smile every time I look at them!

Susanne and Madilynn used Stampin' Up's! Vintage Vogue Stamp Set and
Scallop Trim Border Punch to make this great little card.

Stampin' Love and Care

WOW, I went to a great stampin' class held by my upline demonstrator this last weekend.  Thanks Susanne, the fellowship was a great Mother's Day gift!

Ok, so I will share what we made in this class over the next three days.  Susanne came up with some really beautiful designs and for the first time I used the white craft ink;  I loved it, what a great soft contrast it makes.

We created the ribbon technique on the front of the card by using a piece of sticky strip to hold the ribbon in place with a ripple.

Stampin' Up Items used to create this card include:
  • Marina Mist Smooth Card Stock
  • Marina Mist and Whisper White Ink
  • Whisper White 5/8" Satin Ribbon
  • Sticky Strip
  • Bitty Buttons
  • Linen Thread
  • Love & Care Hostess Stamp Set
This Stampin' Up Hostess Set is FREE with level two sales.
