Chalk – Scrapbook Page


Hello there,

I’m doing a bit of scrapbooking today.   Saturday is a day I like to create something for my home.  I know, this is not my normal posting, but I just thought I would share today’s page with you.

I had this super cute photo of my 14 month old Grand Daughter, Aubree and I just had to do a layout for it.  This will be framed and hanging up in my living room this evening in a black scrapbook frame.  Why not get those scrapbook pages out where people can see them, right?

I kept the layout simple so the focus would be on the picture.  Washi Tape, white stamping and sponging and there you have it.  Layouts don’t need to be cluttered up with stuff to be beautiful.

So what do you like to use your creative mind on during the weekend?

May your weekend be awesome!

Until my next post. . . . . . .  .

Pop Up Posies Pond Scrapbook Page – Tutorial #571


Hello There,

I’m still on my mission to get all my pictures out of frames that are sitting around and get them into Scrapbook frames to hang on the wall.  Today I am focusing on a photo of my Mom.   She passed over 2 years ago and I still found myself teary eyed though the process of this page.   I hope she is looking down smiling at me and what I did with her picture.  I also hope you enjoy the project and give it a try using the tutorial I created below.

The background is created using the direct to paper technique.  I created the lily pads using a circle die cut and the flowers are from the Stampin’ Up! Pop Up Posies Designer kit that can be found in the Stampin’ Up! Spring Catalog.

Now on with today’s tutorial. . . . .  . .

Project Supplies:

Card Stock: Stampin’ Up! Summer Starfruit, Early Espresso, Soft Suede, Calypso Coral, Always Artichoke

Ink: Stampin’ Up! Early Espresso, Primrose Petal, Soft Suede and Marina Mist

Accessories: Stampin’ Up! sponge, Sponge Dauber, Bone folder, Big Shot, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Clear Circle Die, Fancy Fan Embossing Folder, In Color Dahlias (127556), Pop Up Posies Designer Kit (131395), Timeless Type Alpha Dies (retired)


Started with a 11.75″ x 11.75″ piece of Summer Starfruit card stock.  Dragged the Marina Mist ink pad from the top of the card stock down to the bottom over and over until the color was all the way across.

In the same manner added Soft Suede ink.

Added Early Espresso ink in the same manner only just around the edges.

Die cut the Clear Circle die using the Big Shot Machine and Always Artichoke card stock.  Cut 4.

Cut a wedge out of the side of the circles.

Sponged Early Espresso ink in the center and on the edges of the circles.

Embossed the circles using the Fancy Fan embossing folder.

Added the lily pads to the page along with a 6 x 8 piece of Soft Suede card stock.

For each flower you will need 3 of the Calypso Coral flowers from the Pop Up Posies Designer set.   Sponged Primrose Petal ink in the center of one of the flowers.  Took a bone folder and curled the petals of all three of the flowers.

Assembled the flowers by turning the bottom flower so the tips point down and the add the other 2 flowers with the sponged flower on top.  Added a Summer Starfruit Dahlia to the center of the flower.   Adhered the flowers to the page using Stampin’ Dimensionals so they are popped up.  Made 5.


Added a Calypso Coral tag that has been embossed with the Fancy Fan embossing folder and Big Shot Machine.   Clipped a V shape in the bottom of the card stock and sponged Early Espresso ink around the edges.   Added Die Cut letters spelling “Mom” in Early Espresso card stock.

Added The picture with a Calypso Coral and Early Espresso card stock panels behind it to the layout using Stampin’ Dimensionals so it would be popped up.  Also added a Summer Starfruit 12 x 12 panel to the back of the layout.

Here is the finished project.  :)

May you be surrounded by those you love today.

Until my next post. . . . . .

Hailie Jade Style Framed Scrapbook Page – Tutorial #547

Hey There,

It’s my goal this year to get photos out of small frames and get them in scrapbook layouts and into scrapbook page frames.   I love scrapbooks, but it’s great to frame them and get to look at them all the time.

I’m featuring a photo of my darling grand daughter, Hailie Jade in this layout.  She is a pre-teen so I broke away from the pastel colors and worked with red and black.   I also wanted to highlight the dots in her skirt by using polka dotted DSP and a dot stamp.

Check out the tutorial below.
