Today I'm sharing a 12 x 12 scrapbook page I made of my granddaughter Lauren. She's so precious! With material like this, how can you go wrong? LOL!
If you have not heard, Our Daily Bread designs has started a brand new Scrapbook Challenge! Patter Cross and Chris Dickinson are inspiring us every Tuesday with a new "take" on the month's challenge, and encouraging those of us who have been doing mainly cards (like myself) to take the leap into scrapbooking! Just take a look at how beautifully your ODBD stamps work for Scrapbooking as well as cards!
Well... I am NOT an experienced scrapbooker. I have done a few little chip board books and scripture books but nothing like this before. So when Patter came up with this month's sketch, I knew I had to try it and you know what? I absolutely loved doing this! I now have great aspirations to keep going at this!
Here is this month's challenge: A Sketch by Patter Cross
My page is 12 x 12. I started with an Anna Griffin dp for my base. I used different patterns from Daisyd's for my matting of my image. I also used ADT Pastel Textured card stock and used GPWhite to punch out borders with a Martha Stewart around the page punch. I used a Spellbinders Grand Label 1 (which I cut with my new Grand Calibur) for the middle mat. Let me just repeat here that using the Grand Calibur has been such a joy, and when you now can cut these large dies with it.... well, it's like stampers heaven! The greenery is Spellbinders On The Vine Border (also cut with the Grand Caliber) and sponged with Distress Ink in Bundled Sage.
The stamp sets I used are Our Daily Bread designs "The Lord has Risen", "God Loves You" (embossed in white the phrase I am so thankful for you), "Don't Worry" and "Butterfly Single". I colored everything with Copics and cut out the flowers and butterflies. The ribbon and lace is May Arts, the pearls are ZVA Creative. I added Stickles to the flowers and some bling to the butterflies. For the little tag I cut the word "sweet" from my Sweet Stack pad with a Spellbinders Label 6 #1 die.
So now it's YOUR turn! Come join the fun! The challenge runs until the 31st! Be sure to link your entry to the first challenge post of the month here, and there is a $25.00 credit to the ODBD Store up for grabs! Can't wait to see what you come up with!!!
