This scrapbook page was a page I made for my friend as an example of a traditional scrapbook page using Project Life cards. I didn’t want traditional scrapbookers to feel limited by Project Life’s photo sheets, but rather the card sets could be used on a more traditional page.

Her son had gone to some type of swim park with his friend’s and she had captured the moment with pictures she wanted to place in a scrapbook. I didn’t have any 12×12 SU! new 2015-2017 in-color paper (Watermelon Wonder); so, I took a piece of Very Vanilla 12×12 and adhered the solid side of the new envelope paper to the Very Vanilla base. Hey, it worked. I used Project Life cards to add commentary areas and sentiments. I then wanted a 3D effect. I took baker’s twine and punched out banner shapes from the Project Life cards and adhered them to the twine (some with glue dots others with dimensionals. I used Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, and Pool Party card stock as coordinating colors for the mats.

Summer Fun


I have an online Facebook Stampin’ Up! workshop with one of my long time friends. She just had her first grandchild this past May, and she wanted to showcase her in a scrapbook page sample. I thought this was a great idea.

The mother loves various shades of purple. I decided to use a 12 x 12 sheet of Elegant Eggplant (the only purple I had on hand). I added some depth and dimension to the base card stock by daubing Blackberry Bliss onto the Elegant Eggplant using one of the masks from Happy Patterns stencils/masks.

The photograph of the mother and daughter was initially a full photograph, BUT somehow a dot of water got on it; therefore, the silhouette of mother and child. I had some Project Life cards from last year’s catalog and found a really cute saying that just fit the page so well. I added another strip of a Project Life card to the bottom to even the edges of the rectangle. I matted the cards and photo onto a piece of Basic Black card stock and placed it onto a mat of Pool Party.

The page is blinged out with clear rhinestones on the Elegant Eggplant (yellow colored ones on the project life card using Blendabilities) and yellow stars from Silver Glimmer paper. The birth statistics are printed onto a piece of pool party and then punched with the small oval punch (not pictured in supply list – oval thinlits should work).

The page is just adorable.
