This is our last Fabulous Friday on the Sisters in Stamping blog for the current Idea Book & Catalog and we chose to feature some of the retiring products one last time. I wanted to share with you a fun mini scrapbook that I created using Just Jawing (my daughter Amanda's favorite set), Pink Flamingo DSP (one of my all-time favorite papers), some awesome punches and the Big Shot. The colors I used are the retiring cameo coral and summer sun along with tempting turquoise, basic black and whisper white. This album starts with a manilla file folder (do you remember this folder album from a couple of weeks ago?) that I altered - how easy is that?!
To make the skull a little more girly, I added lots of sparkle by coloring in the eyes with my cameo coral stampin' write marker and then added dazzling diamonds with a 2-way glue pen. The silver tooth was created using the silver glitter from the fine galaxy glitter pack.
This is the view when you open the front cover. I love the flamingo on this DSP and wanted to use it on my border. The tabs for opening the pages were created using the round tab punch. Here is a close-up of that page...
This is a close-up of the center page - I wanted to highlight the gorgeous flowers and flamingo on the page so kept it really simple by adding a photo mat using the Top Note die and the Big Shot and created the layered flower by using various Big Shot dies and my Boho Blossoms punch.
The right-hand page features another beautiful piece of DSP from this package for the border. I used my Big Shot again to create a simple journaling area for this page. The cherries are in the Just Jawing stamp set and I colored them using my markers to achieve the different colors on one stamp.
