BRRR Scrapbook page

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

My love for paper crafing started years ago when I started scrapbooking and even wondered how anyone could justify purchasing a stamp set to use on a scrapbook page.  Boy how times have changed.  I enjoy scrapbooking but it become a very social thing and we would go to our local scrapbook stores and crop or take classes and I met lots of friends and collected a whole bunch of stuff along the way.  Most of my scrapbook pages were creations from a class or a kit that I purchased so I could be armed and ready to go to put pictures on the pages when we decided to go out to crop.  Then one by one our local scrapbook stores closed and my group of friends that we took classes with for over 6 years decided to continue scrapbooking and the 4 of us would take turns designing a 2 page spread (or in the case of one smart girl buying kits), preparing it for the 3 others and teaching it.  Guess who had to go first?  I stressed so much over this page because when I rifled through my stuff, I did not have 8 sheets of the same color of 12 x 12 cardstock except for Stampin Up Wisteria cardstock that I ordered by mistake.  So I decided that is what I was working with.  I also knew that I wanted the page to be interactive using the telescoping snowman (see yesterdays post) for the journaling so my page quickly became a snowpage.  I used the snowflake from the season of friendship stampset #111776 to randomly stamp snowflakes on the wisteria cardstock base. I used 3 paper doilies cut from the paper doily die #125592.  I also made a snowflake on the left hand page by putting 2 lattice dies #115958 together and stacked a snowflake cut from silver glimmer paper using the northern flurry die #120901 and a wisteria designer printed brad #122940 in the center.  Title is cut using the silver glimmer paper and the simple letters die #115960.  I cut a scallop border on the RHS and stitched it with bakers twine using the blanket stitch.  I added mats in eggplant and stitched an X on each one. Added lots of rhinestones and pearls and made the telescoping snowman for journaling.

I loved how it turned out and wish it would snow in Ohio so I can add snow pictures!

Telescoping Snowman

 I made this telescoping snowman card that folds open an builds the snowman. The mechanics behind this card is in the mini brads #122941 and the rest is pretty self explanitory.  However if you need more help just post a comment and I will offer assistance.  I loved this little guy so much that I used it as inspiration for a scrapbook page that I will post tomorrow.

Serene Snowflake

I posted this earlier and it was blank so I will repost.  Thought I’d share a simple and serene snowflake card since we got snow yesterday and it is still snowing today. Good news is the kids went back to school today even with no delay!  Featured stamp set is the Stampin Up Serene Snowflakes #115438 using a non traditional color scheme of eggplant silver and navy.
