Thank you for stopping by today... the scrapbook page above is one I designed for Fabulous Friday on the Sisters in Stamping blog. We are featuring scrapbook pages this week (my choice!). I just love how fast and fabulous scrapbooking can be with our gorgeous coordinating designer paper packs and the new Summer Smooches line (a sneak peek this month) fits the bill perfectly!
I saw a digital scrapbook page designed by Cindy Beach here and liked how she used squares of DSP along the side of her layout and so incorporated that idea into my design. It needed a little something so I used two pieces of the white baker's twine, twisted them together and attached with tape to the back of the page. I then took the twine and tied knots at each square and held them down with a dot of 2-way glue pen.
The colors for the page were pulled out of the Summer Smooches pack (tempting turquoise, daffodil delight, tangerine tango, old olive and whisper white). I created the flower embellishment using my Big Shot with the Fun Flowers bigz L die and tangerine tango card stock. Texture was added to each layer with the Perfect Polka Dots and Square Lattice textured impressions folders and to finish it off I added a large rhinestone jewel to the top.
Lastly, I created the title with my Big Shot and the Timeless Type alphabet die set with old olive card stock - it is subtle against the old olive DSP but I like it.
If you'd like to order something from the Summer Smooches sneak peek promotion, don't forget that they're only available through the end of April. After that you will have to wait until the new catalog debuts on June 1st. Why not get a jump start on your summer crafting and order it now!!
Thanks for checking out my project today... it is going to be one of the two layouts for my Scrapbook Club meeting next week. For even more scrapbooking inspiration, hop on over to the Sisters in Stamping blog here. Until next time, happy stamping!
