Scrapbooking the Traditional Way with Project Life by Stampin’ Up!

In addition to the three convention sets we were given to make display board samples, we were also given some Project Life goodies to use.  Today I want to show you how can use Project Life products to scrapbook in a traditional way.

AB Scrapbook

I used some items from the Everyday Adventure Accessory Pack and Card Collection.  The accessory pack includes the epoxy stickers, banner stickers, and washi tape as well as many more items which I didn’t use here.

I also used some of the stamps from the Project Life Point & Click Stamp Set and some in-color sequins.  And I also added some crazy stitching with my sewing machine.

AB Scrapbook Close Up 4I used one of the stamps from Amazing Birthday for the title of the page.  Sometimes making a 12 x 12 page can be a little intimidating because you have so much space to fill.  But these little cards make it pretty easy.  They enable you to focus on one small space at a time, and everything coordinates.

So, what do you think?  Are you more of a traditional scrapbooker or do you like the new Project Life pocket-style of scrapbooking?  I like them both!

Rows of Hearts — FMS147

I’m taking a break today from convention display board samples because it’s Wednesday. And Wednesday means it’s time for a new challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week, the amazingly talented Jennifer Timko is our hostess, and she has a creative sketch for us.

When I first saw the sketch and its rows, I thought of a new punch I’ve barely used, the Hearts Border Punch.  When I realized that my hearts would be side-ways with this sketch, I decide to flip the sketch 90 degrees.

Rows of HeartsI also used the Hearts Decorative Mask and sponged some Whisper White ink over the mask on the bottom of the card.  I punched the little heart from Silver Glimmer Paper with the heart punch in the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.  The larger heart was cut with one of the framelits in the Hearts Collection.

The stamped sentiment is from Pictogram Punches.  I used a color combo of Lost Lagoon, So Saffron, Calypso Coral, and Crumb Cake.

We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch.  Be sure to post it in the gallery, as we love to see what you make.  You can go check out what the design team made at the Freshly Made Sketches site for some inspiration.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

A Hardwood Season

Another convention display board sample for you.  I hope you’re not getting tired of seeing the same three stamp sets.

The card today uses the new Seasonally Scattered stamp set which will be available in the upcoming Holiday catalog.  So you can consider this to be a sneak peek as well.

SS Card 1

Out of all my cards that I made for the display boards, I’d say this one is most “me.”  And I had to laugh when a couple of stamping friends saw it on the boards and asked me if I had made it — even they knew.

I stamped the background with the Hardwood background stamp and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I added some scallops and paper piercing and a big bow.

I think what I like most about this card is the color combination — Crumb Cake, So Saffron, Mossy Meadow, Cajun Craze, Island Indigo, and Very Vanilla.  I’ll definitely be using these colors together again.

A Bag and a Box

I have two more convention display board projects for you today.  One is a sack and the other is a box.  They both feature the Amazing Birthday stamp set.

AB 3d 2I used one of the Chevron Tag a Bag Gift Bags and then added a fun banner and embellishments.  I finally made a spiral flower using the Spiral Flower Originals die out of Hello Honey card stock.  I hot glued it on with some ribbon and sequin trim.

AB 3d 2 Close UpI also decorated one of the fry boxes, which I created with the Fry Box Bigz L die.  It is so easy to assemble, and it’s so fun to decorate.

AB 3d

I put some marbles in the cellophane bag, which of course coordinated with the fun Gold Soiree dsp. My daughter had a great time playing with the extra marbles.

AB 3d close upI love how versatile this stamp set is.  Even though it has birthday in its title, this set can really be used for so much more than birthdays.

Two Scattered Seasons

I have two more convention display board samples for you today.  They both feature the stamp set, Seasonally Scattered, which will be in the upcoming Holiday Catalog and has three stamps — one for Thanksgiving, one for Christmas, and one for Valentine’s Day.  Now I know it’s way too early for any of these holidays!  But I just wanted to share what was on the display boards.

SS Card 4I used a combination of lots of pinks on this card — Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Calypso Coral.  I also used some of the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper for the heart, and the cute little heart punch included in the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack for the strip of punched-out hearts.

SS Card 4 Close UpI used a sponge dauber to apply the different colors of ink directly to the stamp before stamping on the white card stock.  It’s subtle in the picture, but more noticeable in real life.

SS Card 3Here’s a Christmas card on which I used an ombre effect.  I embossed the image with white embossing powder on white card stock.  I then used  a sponge dauber and started by swiping Marina Mist ink across the top of the panel.  I then followed this with Coastal Cabana and then Pool Party.

SS Card 3 Close UpI added some punched scalloped borders and a layer of vellum over the dsp.  I think this is a fun technique, and it really is quite easy.

I hope you enjoyed the sneak peeks.  Enjoy your Saturday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Two Amazing Birthdays

I have some Convention Display Board samples for you today, this time using the Amazing Birthday stamp set.

AB Card 1I tried to focus on the new In-Colors for this card, so I used Hello Honey, Tangelo Twist, Blackberry Bliss, and Basic Gray.

AB Card 1 Close UpI added a little crazy stitching with my sewing machine, and used some dsp from the Moonlight dsp pack.

AB Card 2For this next card, I focused on some of the In-Colors which were introduced last year — Strawberry Slush and Coastal Cabana.  I threw in some Crumb Cake and Silver Glimmer Paper as well.

AB Card 2 Close UpI used the new star punch which is included in the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack to make the star strips.  I also used some of the fun new In-Color Sequins as well.

Typeset Flower Frenzy — FMS146

I’ve been looking forward to this Wednesday!  It’s time for a new sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches, and I get the privilege and pleasure of being the hostess this week. Here’s my sketch for you:

While I did have a flower in mind while making the sketch, please feel free to use any shape you’d like.  That’s part of the fun of challenges — making the sketch work for you.

Typeset Flower Frenzy I love flowers, so I couldn’t resist the new Flower Frenzy Bigz die in the new catalog.  I used some different sheets of the Typeset dsp to make the flower.  All of the flower layers were made using the one Bigz die.  I just crumpled them up and straightened them out a little before layering them.  I used some of the new Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper for the top layer of the flower.

What’s under the flower?  The top row is a stamp from Tape It, which I embossed with black embossing powder.  The bottom row is some Washi Tape from the Sweet Sadie collection.  And the sentiment is from the Four You set (I get so much use out of that sentiment set!).

Typeset Flower Frenzy Close UpThe Pistachio Pudding Baker’s Twine was a little thick for the button I used, so I unraveled a couple of the strings on it to make it a little thinner.  It was easy to do.

The Clean Team came up with some great designs with this sketch, so be sure and check out their creations at the Freshly Made Sketches site for some inspiration.  And we hope you’ll be able to play along and post your pictures in the gallery.  I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!
