First Scrapbook Class

Okay, so I'm a little late in posting the scrapbook pages I made for my first scrapbook class - but I have a good reason.  My Mum arrived on Monday from Perth (yay) and we've been busy catching up (and eating copious amounts of chocolate). 

My scrapbook page was inspired by Mum's visit.  Earlier in the year I mentioned that Mum and Dad celebrated their 40th Wedding Anniversary (remember the puffy circle scallop flower card I made for their anniversary?), so I decided to scrap a page to celebrate their Anniversary.

I created two 12"x12" pages on Kraft card stock.  I used several sheets of different designer series paper (dsp) from different dsp packs.

I wanted to make the pages look vintage so I distressted the edges of all the card stock, dsp and photos and daubed Chocolate Chip ink around the edges.  I also tore some of the edges to give it a bit more of a vintage feel.
I used the Big Shot and the SU Timeless Type Junior Alphabet dies to create all the lettering for the page.  "40 years together" was cut from Very Vanilla card stock, but before I put the card stock through the Big Shot I  stamped it with the hearts stamp from the Sprinkles stamp set with Chocolate Chip ink.  After the letters were created I daubed the edge of each of them with Chocolate Chip ink and then gently (very gently) sponged the top of each letter with Chocolate Chip ink.

I wanted to add an additional colour to the page to brighten it up a little, so I used Kiwi Kiss coloured dsp to create "love".  This also tied in with the SU Little Leaves dies which I placed under the flowers which were punched using the 5 Petal Flower punch.

The girls in the class were given the same card stock and dsp and it was fun to see the different completed pages.
