Today I am showing you how I go about doing a Scrapbook Page by showing that you can make ANY size page depending what you like. I started off making a 6 X 6 page:
The red block is for putting your picture in. I LOVE handmade scrapbook pages! And the Stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called Christmas Magic is one of my FAVES! It’s so pretty and versatile! I made tags too with the sets I used for this page, check it out at the end of this post!
For the next part of the page I made an 8 1/2″ x 11″ page and placed the 6 x 6 on that one.
The White under the Santa and next to the snowman is where You put the picture on this part! I used the Santa from the Stamp set Cookie Cutter Christmas. This was so much fun to do! I stamped it on Vellum using Black ink and embossed it with clear. I then turned it over and colored the back, making sure I shadowed it. I put it on my Stampin’ Pierce Mat and with my embossing tool from the Simply Scored Scoring Tool upside down (embossed side down) and rubbed the embossing tool over all the white pieces. This raises the vellum and makes it white. REALLY WHITE! It is so much fun to do this technique and looks great on sails and other stamped images that need to be white and fluffy.
This is what it looks like before you turn it over.
Once you turn it over you can really see the white is white! I did NOT use ANY ink on the white parts, that is all because the vellum changes to white when you press on it with the embossing tool.
Now, here is the finished page on 12 x 12 :
I die cut the ‘Merry’ from the Christmas Greetings Thinlits. I also stamped the bells from the Christmas Magic stamp set and embossed it with Silver Embossing Powder, then using my blender pen colored in Smoky Slate to ‘look like’ silver. But first I stamped the Swirl from Star of Light and ‘hung’ my bells from that.
If you notice under the snowman, I have three bells on white bakers twine, this is so they won’t fall off (my daughter is going to frame this with her Christmas pictures on the wall), and I wanted to make sure that no matter what they wouldn’t fall off. I made the white twine go through the paper and I tied a knot in the back.
This page, in person, is so pretty!! Have you ever made something and are impressed with how much better it came out than you thought it would when you started?!! That’s how I feel, I hope you like it too!!
Now, here are the tags that I made to go along with this gift:
I love the simple yet elegant feel of these! Which is perfect for something that you will want to make a lot of! I used the Scallop Tag Topper for all of these, the middle one is just a little bit shorter than the other two.
