Another 6x6 Scrapbook Page

This is the second 6x6 scrapbook page I am doing at a workshop on Tuesday Night. This one is going into a Stampin Up 6x6 Page Protector and then I will make a cover page and join them all together with D rings.

I have used Riding Hood Red, Chocolate Chip and Pink Pirouette C/S, Bella Rose DSP, So Swirly Jumbo Wheel, Life Definitions Stamp Set, Chocolate Chip Ink, Felt Flowers and Brads.

Hostess/Door Prizes

The We Stamp "Gift Card Pouch" and "Chocolate Clutch" make great Door Prizes or Hostess Gifts. The Chocolate Clutch came just at the right time, as I thought I would have to eat the last full box of Fundraising Chocolate all by myself, and that would just be WRONG.
I have used Holiday Treasures DSP, Old Olive & Chocolate Chip C/S. It is easier to decorate this when the chocolate is inside. This gives you something to press on without squashing the box and also stops you from eating the chocolate.
Sorry about the photo on this one. I have used the basic idea behind the "Gift Card Pouch" and adjusted it to use up the cellophane bags I already had. This one contains a stampin spot, two incentive stamps and my business card/bookmark. You can open the top flap just by pulling it forward, and then close it again by pulling on the ribbon handle.

Inkpirations #10 - Progressive Scrapbook

I have a scrapbooking workshop on Tuesday night and decided to demonstrate the versatility of 6x6 pages. We will be doing 2 6x6 pages. This is the first one, which I decided to make into a progressive page. While I was sorting myself out I had a break and did a bit of blog surfing (as you do), and I realised that the colours work well with this weeks Inkspiration Challenge .

Anywho here are my progressions.

The first is a 6x6 page, then on up to an A4 and finally a full 12x12.

I have used Basic Grey, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze and Whisper White Cardstock. Urban Garden DSP. Baja Breeze Ribbon. Bugs & Kisses Stamp Set, Kiwi Kiss & Whisper White Ink Pads. I did the journalling on the computer and changed the colour to match Kiwi Kiss. (RGB codes on Splitcoast).

Inkspirations Colour Challenge 10

Here is my take on the colour challenge over at Inkspirations....

The colours were calling to be distressed, so distress I did . . .

Cardstock: Rose Red (although the photo makes it look like Ruby Red), Always Artichoke, Mellow Moss and Very Vanilla.

Stamps: Occasional Greetings (a wonderful set with a bit of everything)

Other: Distressing Tool and Jumbo Brads in Very Vanilla which will be available in the awesome spring mini from 1st August.

We Stamp - Pad & Pocket Folder

Over at the We Stamp blog there is a great members only area, with awesome ideas and new inspiration every day!! I am a bit behind as this is the Day 1 idea and tomorrow is Day 4.
Cardstock: Tangerine Tango, Old Olive and So Saffron.
DSP: Haiku
Stamp Set: Occasional Greetings & Lovely as a Tree
Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon, Old Olive Flower Fusion and a So Saffron Designer Brad (available August 1st).
The sample had the ribbon tied ina bow and pretty on the front, but these colours didn't do pretty, so I just made the ribbon into a sleeve that keeps the whole thing closed.
Hope everyone has a great weekend, looks like it might be a wet one. Oh well more time for stampin then.

Clean & Simple - We Stamp

The latest challenge on the "We Stamp" blog is to keep a project clean and simple, single layering. minimal extras.
I really tried hard not too think too much about this one, and also to resist the urge to embellish just a little bit.
I have used Very Vanilla C/S, stamped it with the Sanded Background stamp in Creamy Caramel. Then stamped the grasses from Inspired by Nature with Old Olive and the sentiment if from Close as a Memory in Chocolate Chip.
Thats it. Clean & Simple
