This is the scrapbook pages that I told you about on Wednesday. This style is very different than what I usually do, but I still really like it.  My inspiration for this came from a card a fellow demonstrator, Chris Galbraith, created.  I kept looking at her card over and over again, I was totally mesmerized by it.  To me it was very calming and just down right beautiful.  

I contacted Chris and asked her if I could use her card to create a scrapbook page and she said absolutely.  I was so happy.  I had a lot of fun creating this layout.  I first started with 2 - 12  x 12 sheets of Pear Pizzazz card stock as my base.  I wanted to use the same colors as Chris did, which were Peekaboo Peach and Pool Party.  I added Chocolate Chip to sponge around the Very Vanilla card stock and the Pool Party Designer Series Paper Stack (the blue paper with writing on it) to  soften up the pages even more.  

To make these layouts you will need the following measurements:

Chocolate Chip Card Stock #102128

  • cut at 4 1/4" x 4 1/4"
  • cut at 4 1/4" x 6 1/4"
  • cut at 4" x 11"

Peekaboo Peach Card Stock #141417

  • cut at 3 1/4" x 3 1/4"
  • cut at 4 1/4" x 6 1/4"

Pool Party Card Stock #122924

  • cut at 3 1/4" x  3 1/4"
  • cut at 4 1/4" x 4 1/4"

Very Vanilla Card Stock #101650

  • 6" x 10 1/2"
  • scraps for the flowers and leaves

Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack #138437

  • cut at 3" x 12"

To make the background on the Very Vanilla paper I used the fern from the Butterfly Basics stamp set stamped in Pear Pizzazz ink.  I would stamp it at full strength and then stamp off about 2-3 times before reinking.  I then sponged the edges with Chocolate Chip ink and I also did the DSP stack too.  

To make the flowers I used Peekaboo Peach and Pool Party inks and the Bunch of Blossoms stamp set.  This stamp set has 3 steps to make a flower.  You will stamp the outline of the flower first as this will make lining up the other two stamps a lot easier.    Then you will use the stamp I call the definition stamp (this one gives the flower more color in certain areas).  The final stamp, which covers the whole area,  you will want to stamp off first because you want this to be light in color.  Guess what !  There is a matching punch to go with this stamp set!  I love punches!  They are so fast and easy, which will be very nice with the amount of flowers you are making.   

I hope you enjoy this layout as much as I have designing it for you.

Have a wonderful day!

Happy Stampin!
