Embrace Life scrapbook page (6×6)

Posted in 6 x 6 Scrapbook layouts tagged , at 2:58 pm by bejewelledcreations

Here’s the second page that I’ve made to compliment the Scribble This scrapbook page in the previous post – it’s with different stamp sets but the colours are similar and the feel of it is basically the same.

Cardstock:  River Rock, Ruby Red, Whisper White

Papers: Ginger Blossom Designer Series Paper

Ink: VersaMark, Chocolate Chip and Ruby Red.

Accessories; Matt Pack, Antique Brass brads, Scallop Edge punch, Dimensionals.

I LOVE playing with these colours. So, you can see the colours are very close to the previous scrapbook page (Scribble This), the only difference is that I’ve used Ruby Red C/S and ink with the above page instead of Purely Pomegranate C/S and ink with the other one.

Scribble This scrapbook page (6×6)

Posted in 6 x 6 Scrapbook layouts tagged , , at 4:37 pm by bejewelledcreations

I’d like to share with you a scrapbook page that I used recently at a Workshop – I love the simplicity of it.

This is one of my favourite photos of my daughter – she’d been playing dress-ups and was wearing a circlet that I’d made years ago (when I was considering making wedding circlets and tiaras – oh the things I’ve tried!!) and it just looks so pretty on her. And who would have known that the colours matched Stampin’ Up!’s Purely Pomegranate and Ruby Red?!

Materials:

Stamp sets;  Scribble This, Embrace Life, Scribble Jumbo Wheel

Cardstock;  Textured Chocolate Chip, River Rock, Purely Pomegranate, Whisper White.

Ink;  Chocolate Chip, Purely Pomegranate, VersaMark.

Accessories;  2-way Glue Pen, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Blender Pens, Dimensionals.

Chocolate Chip textured cardstock is the base and I have cut a smaller piece of River Rock to layer on top – the photo shows this is more yellowy than in real life (*note to self: take photographs during the day!*), but it actually looks okay this way too (LOL).

I used VersaMark and rolled the Scribble jumbo Wheel diagonally across the River Rock cardstock. Ink the large doodle from Scribble This in Chocolate Chip and stamp it in the bottom corner. Cut a piece of Purely Pomegranate cardstock to 4×4″ and adhere this to the River Rock CS in the upper right area. On a seperate piece of Whisper White CS, stamp the large flower in Chocolate Chip and use a Blender Pen to pick up colour from the Purely Pomegranate ink pad to colour the flower. I made one edge appear darker than the other and let the ‘stroke lines’ of the Blender Pen remain fairly obvious (I like it this way). Cut around the flower and add Glitter. Adhere this to your page over the bottom left corner of the Purely Pomegranate 4×4 CS with Dimensionals.  Stamp “Embrace Life” on the lower area and you’re done! I love this quick layout and it looks great in 6×6.

Enjoy!
