Let me preface this post to say that I know my scrapbook pages are what keep me from not winning Artisan. I know it – it is just not my strength. That said, I was pretty proud of this page. I thought I’d done it well – kept it simple but used some tried and true stamping. The final result was a little different (I layered it one more time on some Brocade Blue cardstock) but it is pretty much the same.
This is an 8 1/2″ x 11″ page and the base layer turned out to be Brocade Blue and then it’s layered with Ruby Red. I used My Digital Studio to do the journalling on the bottom.
Then, across centre is some Chocolate Chip which I punched with the Pinking Hearts Border punch and then in the centre is Very Vanilla.
I used the Contempo Alphabet and coordinating colours to stamp the title. This was hard and I used the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig all the way but I was happy to get it just right. I added some ribbon and punch embellishments also.
Under the photo, I took a large heart and paper pierced around it to leave a small impression of a large heart and then I went to town with a few extra little embellishments:
I cut out a heart using some denim and the Hearts & Brackets die, I added a little “x” stitch with linen thread. I also embossed a heart from I (heart) Hearts on Chocolate Chip cardstock using Chocolate Chip craft ink and cut it out. And lastly, I wove small strips of coordinating cardstock and punched it out with the small heart punch.
All in all, I was very pleased with this page and, by far, it was my favourite of the three pages I sent in! Thanks for stopping by!
