I really enjoy making these quick and easy little books!  Fill these with photos, recipes, embelishements, advice, etc.  You can make these as thick or as thin as you wish and any size.  Featured here is the Artfully Asian set, coloured in with the Stampin' Write Markers and then accented with Crystal Effects.  Crystal Effects leaves a scrapbooking classes Auckland dimensional, shiny look, making the flowers stand out and look "wet" or embossed.  The background is stamped with the Weathered background stamp, one that is overlooked but a really useful one!  It's really neat when layered with flowers if you enjoyed the aged, distressed, or heritage look.

The designer paper used here is Apple Cider, also used on a scrapbook page posted earlier in the month (scroll down for it).  These aren't colours that I would naturally think to combine . . which is one reason I love to use the papers: it makes the colour combination decision for you!  These particular papers will be retired in 6 days, so please order now!

The neat feature of this book is the double set eyelets.  This book uses four of the Stampin' Up! jumbo eyelets, so the back is as neat looking as the front. 

If you would like to make this project, contact me to set up a time.

 I am now "getting it".  I have this tremendous urge to spend lock my door and scrapbooking layout ideas scrapbook!  I really love it.  Next year will bring more pages to my classes, more on offer, and more on this site.  How about a scrapbooking day?  Show of hands?

This page is an easy layout and actually the first layout I have attempted that uses more than one photo, as my dear Ria pointed out to me.  I have a preference for layouts with a strong focal point . . . that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it! 

The layout was inspired by My Time.  Her great layout can be seen here.

The Designer Series Papers are Summer Picnic, available through the end of November.  I just love the bright colours in this series. This is also the papers used on the spinner card below.  The die cut blooms are a coordinating accessory for these papers and lots of fun, especially since they are on textured card and super big!  My friend Jan G made a particularly BIG and BOLD page using this same layout.  I forgot to get a shot of hers before she took off – send us one, Jan?

Stamps used here are from It's a Beautiful Thing and Enjoy Every Moment, both from the Spring mini catalogue.  Journaling to coordinate with your project is another great use of those markers on promotion this month!

Oh, and yes, I also made three of the girls in the photos.  The fourth one is a close friend of our family, Ayla.

So, we are all clearly in love with Dashing papers and the Season of Joy stamp set!  It's so Using stamps for scrapbooking classes versatile!  And I love that the Dashing does not necessarily have to be Christmas – it's just a great colour combination.  And at 13.95 for a pack of 12 double sided, a tremendous value, too.

This is a great little page I did up of my daughters from about four years back.  I see it's my eldest missing all the teeth in the pic, and this year it's the youngest who is missing four teeth for Christmas!  Oh, if only we could freeze them as they are.

The title Happy Days is done with a stamp set called Happy Everything and is in the main Idea Book & Catalogue.  I've done it up here with Whisper White ink.  The photo may not do it justice, but it shows up quite well on dark cardstock. It also stays wet for a bit so it is embossable too.

Don't forget the Christmas card submission!  You've all had a few days to work on it or just send me over what you are mailing out this year.  Enter to win a $20 gift voucher!

The words on this pages are some of our rub-ons, which show up quite well on dark cardstock, textured card, and other items such as glass jars.  Please check back in the next day or two for a promotion on rub-ons!

This class was actually meant Solitude-pageto showcase the hodgepodge hardware; you can see I've put it on in quite a few places.  I love my hardware – great for masculine and great to give a good contrast to the soft colours here.
