What great colors for spring time!!! Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz and Rose Red!! They are so bright and cheery!
This is one page of my two page layout from my first scrapbooking class. The ladies really liked this one and want me to do more like this. I can not wait to get the new Designer Series Paper from the new catalog! It is going to be so much fun to create with it!
For this page I used the Rose Red paper for the background and added Whisper White and Daffodil Delight to break up the pages a little. I used Old Olive card stock for you to mat your pictures.
The flowers are stamped in Rose Red from the Butterfly Basics stamp set #138816 (clear mount). The saying is from the Feel Goods stamp set, which is retiring at the end of the month, and it is stamped using the Daffodil Delight Ink on Whisper White card stock.
I tried to stamp the ferns in Old Olive ink to match the mats, but it ended up being a little too dark for me. I decided to use the Pear Pizzazz ink instead as it is a little bit lighter and gave it a softer feel. With the ferns you only ink it once for each area. You will stamp it once, fully inked, and then just keep stamping with out reinking it. So, for this page you are only going to ink it twice but stamp it 6 times.
The following are the measurements of the paper you will need to make this layout. This includes the measurements for page 2 also.
Regals Collection of 12" x 12" card stock #131188 (you get 2 sheets of each coloring the collection) I used Rose Red for both background pages.
Whisper White 12" x 12" Card Stock #124302
- cut one at 2 1/2" x 3"
- cut two at 5" x 12"
- you will need scrap pieces to stamp 4 butterflies on
Brights Collection of 12" x 12" card stock #131186 I used Daffodil Delight
Old Olive Card Stock #100702
- cut one at 2 3/4 x 3 1/4
- cut two at 4 1/4" x 4 3/4"
- cut four at 4 1/4" x 6 1/4"
You can get all the Old Olive pieces you need for this page out of 2 pieces of 8 1/2" x 11" card stock. On the 8 1/2" side cut it in half at the 4 1/4" mark. You are going to cut both of those pieces of paper on the 11" side at 6 1/4". This will give you the two big pieces of paper needed for the matting of your pictures. You will have two pieces measuring 4 1/4" x 4 3/4" left over which you will use one on this page in the left hand corner. The other piece of Old Olive card stock you need to cut down to 2 3/4" x 3 1/4" for the right hand corner.
Here is a picture of the second page and then of them together.
I am really looking forward to teaching more classes on scrapbooking. Do you have any favorite layouts that you go back to all the time? I would love to see them!
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
