October Scrapbook Pages

Here is one of the layouts from my Monthly Scrapbook Club. We have a great time getting together every month working on our pages. This club is full, but I am currently taking names for another club...there are 3 seats left. Join me and scrap one night a month!

You deserve it!! :-)

This page uses Not Quite Navy and Very Vanilla together with the Bella Bleu Designer Paper. . The tag on page 1 reads "Tie your heart with an unslipping knot". The flowers were made using the Big Shot and flower die cuts, and the center is a Very Vanilla jumbo brad. Vanilla tafetta ribbon and a touch of gold cord ties this page together.

On page 2 we used the Always stamp set for the heart. We stamped it in Not Quite Navy Ink and sponged it and of course added glitter! :-) The top piece is a pocket that holds 2 tags (making tags is a snap with the Stampin' Up! tag corner punch).

And this page is from Courtney's workshop. She wanted to get the gals together for a Scrapbook Workshop and here is the SNOW page they made. It uses the Serene Snowflake Stamp Set (MY FAVE!) in the Holiday Mini, along with the Christmas Cocoa Designer Series Paper. That paper ROCKS. It's has a metallic subtle shine to it that is so RICH. There is also some of the patterns that are FLOCKED. Gorgeous!

The finishing touch on this page (and I am not sure you can tell by looking at this photo) was a fine mist spray of Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint to give it a subtle all over sparkle. We mixed 1 oz. of 91% rubbing alcohol to 15 drops of Shimmer Mist in a spray bottle (shake well!) After we stamped the page, we misted it with the spray (open a window...very strong fumes...but worth it!). It dries very quickly (because of the 91%) and it just adds that extra special touch to the page. This also works wonderfully on cards. :-)

Thanks for stopping by ~

take some time for yourself today and stamp a card or scrapbook page. :-)
