12x12 page from a 6x6 page

Here's a 12x12 sized page layout from the 6x6 design you've seen in a previous post. I like the "quilt" look this design has. The designer paper is: Sweet Slumber Speciality from Stampin' Up!.

Scrapbooking: rustic and distressed

I love the rustic and distressed look on my scrapbook pages. Here's a simple layout with several black and white photos and one colored photo framed to grab your attention. This color scheme plays off of the rustic old car in the background of the larger photo.
Happy scrappin,

Personalized card for Baby!

Lately I have been having fun creating personalized baby cards for newborns. This card is a 5x7 which is a size I have envelopes for and also a fun size for mom to frame in a 5x7 frame....makes a fun decoration for the baby's room.
These cards also make great scrapbook page layouts.
Of course you can make the card in a blue color scheme for boys. I buy alot of scrap ric-rac and lace from a local flea market and also use up all those scraps in my stamp room so this is a fun and easy project.


12x12 "Family" themed scrapbook page

Here's a fun 12x12 layout. I used Very Vanilla cardstock and I really like the vanilla letters: "family" at the top of the layout....subtle but still there for a title. For the vanilla title of "family" I first glued the vanilla cardstock onto coasters then cut the letters out on my Big Shot machine. This way the letters are thicker and can be easily glued to the page with glue dots. The rest of the page uses various rub-ons, chipboard shapes,ribbon and cardstock embellishments also cut from the Big Shot machine.
