A few weeks ago I offered a class using Stampin' Up!'s fabulous Simply Scrappin' kits and book board to create a keepsake family album.
I offer this class by mail too and you could easily substitute one of the other Simply Scrappin' Kits to create a baby, wedding or special occasion album instead. Check out my Stamps in the Mail offers in this post.
I had two classes in one day – here are some of my customers enjoying putting together their books..
Sue, Colleen, Jennifer and Sandra – that's not Sandra's sippy cup by the way – it belongs to her adorable baby Teagan who was happily (as usual) sitting in her little seat at Sandra's feet. I forgot to take a picture of her…next time.
Here are two more Fresh Cut stamp set samples….
I love black and white. I embossed the images in white on black cardstock and mounted inside the card (next time I'll take my friend Sue's advice and mount the piece on the back of the front so there is space to write your greeting on the inside). I stamped the branch in black and punched out with the 1/2" punch and then used the build a brad for the centre. I did punch a black flower using the 5 petal punch and mounted it behind the white flower – sorry you can't see it well in the picture.
I used the reflection technique on this card. First stamp the image on white cardstock and emboss in black, repeat with the black embossing power on black cardstock. The trick is to use the same size of cardstock for each side (mine was 3 1/4 x 3 3/4"). Cut in half and then join the pieces in the middle. I'm loving the white taffeta ribbon – it ties so easily and lies flat. The sentiment is stamped and punched out using the large oval punch – I then used dimensionals to pop it up!
I'm offering a class using this stamp set on June 21st – if you live in Vancouver or the lower mainland I hope you'll join us. Check out my classes here.
Funny you should post this today Alison, I just pulled out my album to put pictures in it as I was going to give it to Brad as a Father’s day gift.
