Some Scrapbooking

October 4, 2010

As you all know, I am not much of a scrapbooker.  I love it but just don’t get around to it often enough.  Last week we had our five eldest grandchildren sleepover all together for the first time and so I decided to make a page to remember how gorgeous they all are now.

I used Crumb Cake as the base  of my pages and stamped them with the Sanded Background using Crumb Cake ink and sponged the edges with the same ink.  I added strips of Garden Green card with one edge punched with the Scallop Edge Punch and tied Pumpkin Pie 1/4″ grosgrain ribbon around them.  I ran the circles of Garden Green card through the Big Shot using the Petals a Plenty embossing folder.  I used my Timeless Type Junior Alphabet to cut the letters from Basic Black card.  The photos are all matted on Basic Black card as well.

To add some decoration to the page, I cut the Little Leaves Sizzlet using Garden Green card.  I added flowers that I punched out using the 5 Petal Flower Extra Large Punch and also the Boho Blossoms Punch.  I scrunched then, separated some of the layers to give dimension and added Basic Black brads and also a large 1/2 pearl from the Pretties Kit (now retired).  To finish off I used my Beautiful Wings Embosslit and Pretty in Pink card to add some butterflies to the page as well.

Here you can see the largest butterfly from the Beautiful Wings embosslit.  Can you believe that you get 5 butterflies on the one die.  I used the smallest one on the leaves on the top of the left hand page and the others spread over the two pages. 

All in all I am most pleased with these pages.  I guess the best thing about it is that I have recorded how much fun we had and how much Ron and I enjoyed spending time with all these gorgeous kids.

Till next time, bye for now, Kris.
