Scrapbooking Sunday: Mixed Bunch Color-blocked Page

So, this is my last weekend to prep before the big Northwest Women’s Show here in Seattle.  I’m grateful to have the opportunity to present a crafting demonstration on their Home Style stage on each of the 3 days; so I’ve been trying to square away exactly what I’m going to demo.  Well, this is one of the projects I’m planning on showing on Sunday (please forgive the awful photo):

I saw a layout by a crafty friend of mine named Brettaney Q, who is a super talented scrapbooker, and was inspired to scraplift from it for the show this coming weekend.  She was so nice to give me permission and I love how my version turned out thanks to her inspiration.

I changed things up because I was using all Stampin’ Up! supplies and it was fun to get to pull out and play with all my tools!

This layout ended up being all about texture as I cut my strips for the color-blocked bottom of the layout and ran them through my Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.  And on the top half of the layout I stamped with the Mixed Bunch stamp set with Versamark and embossed using clear embossing powder.  I added some Wisteria Wonder bakers twine along the middle which softens it all a bit.  And then I played with my Mixed Bunch stamp set and the matching Blossom punch to make the flower next to my photo.

Oh, and the last thing I did was add a simple title to my page.  I again reached for my Big Shot and grabbed my Timeless Type alphabet sizzlets, and cut it out of Rich Razzleberry cardstock.

I love how it turned out and I hope the visitors to the Women’s show enjoy it too!  I’ll be showing them this project on Sunday along with a matching card using the same layout for those of you who aren’t scrapbookers. 🙂
If you’d like to come visit me at the show – I’ll be presenting at the following times:

  • Friday 3/2 at 3:30pm on the Home Style Stage
  • Saturday 3/3 at 3:00pm on the Home Style Stage
  • Sunday 3/4 at 11:30am on the Home Style Stage

I’ll be demo’ing for about 30 minutes and have a display table next to the stage with more samples, information, and of course a show special!  I still have a lot to do but I think the show will be a lot of fun.  Hope you can come say hello if you are local!
