More Scrapbook Pages...

Today has been great, I've broken the news about the existence of my blog to my Mum and a few more friends today and received lots of positive feedback - thank you! So to celebrate I thought I'd post some more scrapbook pages completed in the last few months. They are all 12x12 and exclusively Stampin' Up!...

"Easter" this page uses papers from the Spring Showers Designer Series Double-Sided Paper collection, Bashful Blue card stock and ink, Naturals Ivory card stock, Twill Tape, Hodgepodge Hardware, On Board Simon Lower chipboard letter 'e' and some chipboard offcuts which I've used to mount the words 'cute' and 'sweet'. The stamp sets used were So Very and Classic Alphabet (both borrowed from Helene - thanks again!). Here's another:

"Beautiful Breanna Butterfly" I'm really proud of this one! This was my first ever 100% Stampin' Up! page. I created it as a demo for good friend Natasha's workshop back in March (my first workshop!) Because it was for demonstration I wanted it to be quick and easy but still effective. I think I achieved that - guests to date have seemed impressed. I still cant believe that this is only plain card stock stamps and ink! The card stock colours are Perfect Plum, Pale Plum & Whisper White and the ink is Perfect Plum. Stamp sets used are Bold Butterfly and Headline Alphabet and I have used the Flitting By Jumbo Wheel for the background. Journalling was done with the white gel pen.

This page layout was inspired by one in the Stampin' Up! catalogue (pg 72) with a few of my own added touches. The papers used are from the Recollections Designer Series (which are my favorite Stampin' Up! papers). The 12x12 card stock is Very Vanilla, other card stock is Mellow Moss and Chocolate Chip. Inks are Cranberry Crisp and Mellow Moss. Ive used some white grosgrain ribbon and coloured it with the inks and some Hodgepodge Hardware. Stamp sets used are Wild Rose and Headline Alphabet.

So what do you think of these three pages? I'd love to hear your comments.
