Fall in love that is! I am a scrapbooker at heart and it felt SO good to sit down last night and put this layout together. Nothing is better than incorporating stamps with your scrapbooking. This is one reason (of hundreds) that I just LOVE Stampin’ Up!’s products for scrapbooking. Everything ties in together. If you are a die hard scrapbooker you really could get all your shopping done in one sweep in the SU catalog. Love how paper, inks, stamps and Designer paper all coordinate together.
Tonight I had a scrapbooking class and the title was Fall back into Scrapbooking. One, it had been a while since I had a scrapbook class and two we are drawing near the Fall season here in Colorado. At tonights class I really tied in the Big Shot to show just how AWESOME this tool is!! Let’s talk about these layouts!
The Big Shot had a lot of uses tonight. Here are a list of the dies I used: Scallop Circle #2, Leaves #2, Go Go Boots, Serif Essentials, Top Note Bigz Die, and Scallop Circle. I just loved how these leaves came out. We used the Sanded background and then sponged each leaf and rolled them between our fingers to give them a little life. The designer paper is Hawaii Papaya. Such beautiful paper and the colors are just stunning. I also enjoyed using the Top Notes Die as a journaling block. LOVE it!
Here you can see a close up of the leaves. Some of them looked REAL.
This is the second layout. Again, lots of leaves on the right side of the layout. I love using the Serif Essentials Alphabet for scrapbooking. I actually cut chipboard letters and then layered the Designer Paper over them. Here is a secret on my chipboard. I am using Mat Board that you can get at your local FRAME store. It cuts beautifully with your Big Shot. I used my Go Go Boots dies for the 07′. So fun!!
Here is a close up of the Scallop Circle! I just matted these on a larger circle.
