The Medallion and the Scrapbook Page!

Hello stampers!  Tonight I held one of my  long time favorite classes.  "It’s ALL about Me!"  It’s a scrapbook class I have been doing for years and it started a long time ago in one of my favorite Scrapbook Stores in Jacksonville Florida!  We would get together once a month and scrapbook all about US!  It was also a great time to get together and learn about each other and the class formed many, many friendships.  I miss those great friends!  I’ve been scrapbooking since 1996!  In the beginning it was all about me and my husband.  Then the kids came along and it was scrapbooking all about them.  22 books later and looking through those books there were not many pictures of ME!  I was the one behind the camera, always.  I also had a friend battling cancer and she had children.  She wanted to leave her LEGACY behind so she started a scrapbook about herself.  What a brilliant idea.  So, "It’s ALL about Me!" started.  I want my children to always know the little bits and pieces of my crazy self.  Deep feelings of WHO I am, my beliefs and things I love are things I want them to remember.  After many years of doing scrapbook pages like these it’s fun even for me to go back and look at the layouts.  Some of them are hilarious as I look back at the MANY hairstyles I’ve had.  I am sure you can relate. 

We gathered tonight to start another round of "It’s All about Me!"  I wanted to share my fun scrapbook page with you.  I couldn’t help but use my favorite stamp set and I added other fun new toys I think you will enjoy!

I haven’t journaled on this page yet, but the pictures tell my story here.  My favorite things are Starbucks and the Beach.  I only wish I was drinking a Starbucks on the beach right now!  This page uses ALL new toys!  The beautiful Lattice you see on both sides of the layouts are from the new die cut called Lattice (115958 21.95).  This is a Stampin’ Up! exclusive and what a beautiful die this is!  The way I used it on the page almost gives it a faux embossed look.  YUMMY!  At the top of the layout I used the Melon Mambo ink and stamped the Medallion.  The center was stamped using Melon Mambo ink and the Favorite Things stamp set (115436 23.95).  Super fun stamp set and great for scrapbookers!  For the title I used another new Big Shot die cut called Simple Letters (115960 89.95).  This is yet another FABULOUS Stampin’ Up! exclusive and I just love this font.  Because these alphabet are BIGZ dies you can cut up to 50 different materials with this die.  Think felt, fabric and chipboard.  So yummy!  Another fun product I used was the Modern Label punch that fits one of the stamp sets PERFECTLY from the Favorite Things stamp set. 

I hope this inspires you to pull out your scrapbooking supplies and start your own "It’s ALL about Me!" album!  Leave your own Legacy behind. 

I have one more thing to share tonight.  Seriously, don’t laugh at my Martha Sewing skills…  Yesterday both kids had to have a tooth pulled.  It was a DOUBLE tooth fairy night!   I almost had a panic attack because we only had ONE tooth fairy pillow.  Oh what to do??  My genius 6yr old daughter thought mommy should make her one.  In her eyes I am Martha and quite frankly I don’t want to change that yet.  <sigh>  So, I had some fabric laying around and I pulled out my hardly used sewing machine and got to work.  This gorgeous tooth fairy pillow was stuffed with yarn (no stuffing around the house) and worked like a CHARM!  Alexis was so excited she walked around with it all day.  These are the little things that just make a mommy happy!

One last note… Today I have been married to my PRINCE 13 years.  I still get the silly butterflies with him.  He is a GREAT guy and puts up with all my antics. Unfortunetly my sweets lost his only Uncle on July 4th to a sudden massive heart attack.  He is flying out today to be with his family in Iowa and then I will fly out on Tuesday to meet him and be there for the funeral.  It’s so sad to see our loved ones go.  We will miss this great man!!

I hope you have a super weekend and stamp something pretty!

  1. Kim- what a great idea for a scrapbook!! Could you share a few other ideas that you’ve used for this album? I am thinking it would be a great thing to invite some of my mom friends to. Thank you for sharing your creative talent with us, I love your work!!


  2. I love this idea! What a great way to leave a little bit of you for your kids. Like you I am always behind the camera, especially since my husband has no idea how to work our new “fancy” SLR. =) This would be great way to get together with some friends.

  3. Love the tooth fairy pillow. Do you mind share the dimensions? would love to make one for my grandniece. Thanks.

  4. Love this page. Favorite Things is on my wishlist and this is a great way to use the set! I have also been kicking around ideas for an All About Me class, would you be willing to share more ideas?


    P.S. Love your style!
