Be Mine Scrapbook Layout

 

Hello Friends,

If you were here yesterday, you know that I made a card with the Be Mine Framelits Dies from Stampin' Up! and that I was so impressed with the dies that I wanted to try a Scrapbook Layout.  You may also notice that today's You Make Me Smile Scrapbook Layout looks a lot like yesterday's card only expanded with a picture of my granddaughter, Sadie.


Be Mine Stampin' Up!

Scrapbook Design Tips

There are just so many beautiful dies in the Be Mine Framelits die set.  I simply cut a variety in mostly Whisper White with a touch of Flirty Flamingo and Vellum thrown in for good measure.  The white on white looks so classy with just a pop of color.

Are you one of those people that struggle with choosing which side of the designer paper to use?  Here's a thought.  I used both sides of my All My Love Designer Paper making my title bar.  I cut Sadie's name with my Large Letter Framelits Dies, then used the reverse side of my paper to make my band.


You Make Me Smile Scrapbook

Sadie's surprised look picture looks adorable all by itself, but to add just a little interest, I ran the picture through my Big Shot with my Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.

Here's 2 Tips for using vellum on your Scrapbook pages.  Because vellum is a nonporous surface, stamp with Jet Black Stazon ink.  I used a sentiment from the Colorful Seasons stamp set.  The second tip involves ninja tricks for securing vellum without leaving telltale adhesive marks.  Tuck the vellum behind something that is solid like I did with my card stock.  Then place your adhesive on the vellum behind the card stock.

Speaking of hearts, I want to thank you for all your thoughts and prayers for my Dad.  He is doing well after a 5 Bypass Surgery.

She's a Pocketful of Sunshine


Pocketful of Sunshine Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Thirteen, do you remember turning 13?  It's the nebulous stage between little girl and woman.  Today's Pocketful of Sunshine Birthday Card is for my niece, Tori, who turns 13 this month.  The Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set is a fun choice for that in between stage.  It's cute, it's playful and it's just a little bit grown up.

Design Tips

Who doesn't love Polka Dots and checks?  I added a splash of checks by only inking a small portion of my Buffalo Check background stamp.  The polka dots were introduced with the Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.

For texture, I heat embossed in White my stitched pocket stamps from the Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set.  Then, I embossed the whole pocket with the Subtle Embossing Folder to make it look like fabric.

Every 13 year old girl needs a little bling, so I added Silver Pool Party Baker's Twine and a sprinkling of Iridescent Sequins.

Cutting the pocket with the Pocket Framelit dies creates a nifty pocket for inserting a little cash or gift.  The fold over tabs make a perfect pocket.

A complete list of supplies for today's card are listed at the bottom of this post along with clickable links for your shopping convenience.

I borrowed the bright and cheerful color combination of aqua, red and silver from this week's Color Throwdown Challenge.  I used Coastal Cabana and Real Red Ink and added a splash of silver with my silver pool party baker's twine.

Add a little sunshine to someone's life.  Make a card with the Pocketful of Sunshine stamps.

Have a fabulous day,

 WooHoo!  Do you love a great sale?  Stampin' Up! is having a 24-Hour stamp sale on select stamps today, October 23!  It's one day only, so if there's a stamp set or two that's on your wish list, scoop them up today and save 15%!  Here's a list of the stamps included in the It's Our Birthday Stamp Sale.  I also have a cute birthday card that I made for my soon to be 4 year old Granddaughter featuring 2 of our sale stamps-Pick a Pennant and Apron of Love.

Pinkalicious Birthday Card

I'm not sure if I like the inside or the outside of this Birthday Card better.  It's so packed with cuteness.  If you have any daughters or granddaughter you may have heard of Pinkalicious.  There's books and a TV show about her.  My 4-year old granddaughter, Brooke, just loves her.  She's also super excited about her upcoming Birthday, since the rest of her family all have spring birthdays and she has to wait all the way until fall.  It's finally her turn.  I thought that it might be fun to personalize her birthday card this year using the Pinkalicious theme and the Pick a Pennant stamps.


Apron of Love Stampin' Up!

Brooke also loves to help me bake almost as much as I love baking with her.  She's such a delight.  The Apron of Love stamps along with the coordinating Apron Builder dies were perfect for expressing my thoughts.  They're so stinkin' cute.  I feel an Apron of Love scrapbook page coming in the future.


Pick a Pennant Stampin' Up!

Since I'm going with a Pinkalicious theme, I used primarily pink inks with just a few other colors to add interest.  I used Powder Pink, Petal Pink, Melon Mambo, Lovely Lipstick, Daffodil Delight and Highland Heather inks.


Apron of Love Stampin' Up!

My Happy Birthday Sentiment is from the Better Together stamps.   

 

 So what's on your list? 

This is a 24-Hour sale so scoop them up while you can and Save 15 %.

 

Have a fabulous day,
