Hello There! These droughts between blog posts are certainly getting old...
Thanks for your patience with my latest unexpected hiatus; this time to recuperate from a surgery that went from minor with only a couple of days to recover to major with a significant recovery period. It's nice to be back to sitting up for more than a few minutes at a time and actually wearing clothes again (as long as they're very loose and/or very stretchy).
I had a few things made before I went into surgery and I've made a couple of things in the last week that I can't wait to share with you. So let's get this show on the road!
Here are the scrapbook pages designed for the August meeting of the SASS Stamp Club. [I design three projects for each Stamp Club meeting. For August, the first was a greeting card using the Hello Blossoms (A la Carte) stamp, the second used the Letters to Santa Designer Series Paper to cover a mini chipboard notebook, and the third project are these scrapbook pages.] I wanted to start off the new club year with a basic design using strong colors. I don't think that you can get any stronger than a base page of Basic Black Textured cardstock with Rich Razzleberry border treatments.
Strips of paper from the Pocket Full of Posies Designer Series Paper were matted with Rich Razzleberry cardstock. A piece of Rich Razzleberry 1/4" Grosgrain ribbon was wrapped around the end of each border strip and knotted. The Starburst Jumbo Stampin' Around Wheel was inked with Rich Razzleberry ink and rolled across strips of Whisper White cardstock. The strips of Whisper White cardstock were punched with the Lace Ribbon Border punch and adhered along the back of one edge of each border strip. The border strips were adhered to each base page as shown.
Scraps of Whisper White, Basic Black, and Rich Razzleberry cardstock were punched with the Doily Triple Layer punch; one color for each of the three layers. For the doily on the left, the bottom layer is Whisper White, the middle layer is Basic Black, and the top layer is Rich Razzleberry. For the doily on the right, the bottom layer is Basic Black, the middle layer is Rich Razzleberry, and the top layer is Whisper White. The layers were stacked and a hole pierced through the center with the Paper Piercing Tool. A silver brad was inserted into the hole and Stampin' Dimensionals added to the back of each doily stack for eventual placement on the scrapbook pages once the pictures have been added.
The simple border treatments from the scrapbook pages translate easily to 3" x 6" cards.
The interior of these cards were lined with Whisper White cardstock. The Starburst Jumbo Wheel was inked with Rich Razzleberry ink and rolled along the left and right edges of each card liner. (Use the Stampin' Around Wheel Guide to help you achieve a straight line. Enough said...)
The Starburst Jumbo Wheel was inked up one last time and rolled across the Small Open End Envelope flap.
Next week I'll be sharing the Thank You card I designed for those who purchased Stampin' Up! products from me in August and the projects from the September meeting of the SASS Stamp Club. I look forward to your visit!
