I made this scrapbook page before the craziness of the December Holidays and wanted to share it with you as my farewell to the Holiday Mini. The Day of Gratitude stamp set was one that didn’t catch my eye when I first looked at the mini but after making a few samples at the Portland Regional in the fall I completely fell in love with this set. I’m so sad to see it go but I’m sure will keep playing with it for a while.
So this layout was the first scrapbook page I had made in many many months since I had been so busy with a new baby I had been focused more on cards (quick, easy, and functional!). However, I did a workshop focused on scrapbooking and when I saw a layout on the Rubber Redneck blog, I just had to CASE it.
In the workshop we did the 6×6 layout using Old Olive, Very Vanilla and Chocolate Chip cardstock. We stamped using the Day of Gratitude stamp set and left room to add a 3”x4.75” photo. Oh, and I had to through in an adhesive backed basic pearl to add a little fun to the saying.
I think turn it into an 8 1/2”x11 layout by adding the More Mustard cardstock as a base with accent stamping using More Mustard classic ink and Autumn Spice designer paper. Throw in some Antique Brads and the chipboard word “fall” cut out using the BigShot (for those of you who have attended a SU convention or regional before, I always save the cardboard/chipboard that is used as a backing for the make and take packets. I used one of those pieces to make my “fall”).
Finally, to turn it into a 12×12, I used a base of Autumn Spice dsp, added some textured Chocolate Chip cardstock, some stamped elements and another Antique Brad, with some Old Olive satin ribbon for a final touch of color.
Makes me almost wish fall wasn’t over yet. This is a pretty easy layout with lots of fun accents. I loved making it and hope you enjoyed the ideas.
