Tomorrow is the LAST DAY to order from this year's awesome Spring Catalogue. Even though it is also the first day we can orer from the NEW catalogue, it is still sad to say goodbye to so many awesome products. My fav fav FAV item from the Spring "Mini" is the so beautiful More Amore DSP. I also love the matching Hearts A Flutter stamp set and framelits, but we are lucky that they are in the new catty !! Yesterday I printed a bunch of pictures to do some scrapbooking with. I haven't made any pages using 2013 pictures yet, so last night I made my first 2013 page !! I printed some cute pics of Jack from Valentines Day and thought it was the perfect opportunity to say goodbye to that gorgeous DSP. I am SO happy with what I came up with !! Take a look !!
Isn't that sweet !? Its a pretty basic layout, I really let the cute pictures and fun DSP speak for itself. First thing I did was trim my pictures. I then matted them onto Pool Party and Primrose Petals. I love double mats for my pictures, they really stand out that way. I took a piece of 12x12 Pink Pirouette cardstock, and trimmed it to 11-3/4" square. I then stamped the chevron heart and outline heart from the Hearts A Flutter stamp randomly over it with some Pink Pirouette ink. I also used my (retiring) Color Spritzer Tool to spray some Pool Party and Primrose Petals splatters using my Stampin' Write Markers. I took my FAV pattern of DSP, those adorable tiny hearts, and cut it at 3-1/2" x 11-3/4" and layered it onto a piece of polka dotted Pool Party DSP from the Patterns Stack. I then wrapped some 3/8" Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon around that, and put some 1/4" Real Red Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon on top of THAT ribbon. I love those little ruffles peeking out !! I used my last remaining heart shaped laser cut doily (also from the DSP pack) and put a DSP heart that I cut with my Hearts Collection Framelits in the middle of it. I adhered my 2 smaller pictures straight down to my page, and used Dimensionals on my large picture. I put my doily heart behind my large picture. I thought it would be fun to say when these pics were taken by using the "Happy Valentine's Day" stamp from Teeny Tiny Wishes, so I stamped it in Real Red ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and die cut it out using my Bitty Banners Framelits. I added it to my doily heart.
My title of "Love You" is from the Seasonal Sayings stamp set (also showing up the new catty). I used my Pool Party and Primrose Petals markers to color it and stamped it onto some Very Vanilla cardstock. I die cut it out with my Hearts Collection Framelits, and also cut out a Primrose Petals layer. I paper pierced my layer heart with the Occasions Paper Piercing Pack. I used some more DSP patterns to make my banners at the top of the page, and made a little medallion using the 1-1/4" Scallop Circle Punch, 1" Circle Punch, 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch and Real Red button tied with some Pool Party Bakers Twine. I used the new Artisan Label Punch folded in half attached to a strip of Very Vanilla for my little journaling tag. I finished off that piece with a Pool Party Printed Designer Brad. Everything was put on a 12"x12" piece of Crumb Cake. Love this layout !!
Thanks a lot for coming by today. I know I don't do scrapbooking pages very often, but expect some more in the near future because I have a bunch of pictures printed !! Yay !! Hope you have a great day and Happy Stamping !!
