It's Scrappin' Saturday! I've got a two page 12x12 layout from my Mexico pages circa 1978! I'm re-scrapping the entire thing!
This uses Bordering Blue, Really Rust, Night of Navy and WW card stock. The title looks crooked here but in actuality isn't. I think the card stock might have bent a little sitting against the screen to get that natural light.
The DSP is Bella Blue, one of my favorites that is retiring this month. Sniff sniff sob! The flowers along the side were cut with the Big Shot using the Loopy Flowers decorative strip die (#113455). The alphabet is Lovely Letters (#115030). This page was made before we got our corner punches so I used an old one I had.
The photos are matted with NON card stock and the journaling has NON Organdy (from when we had it!) and a NON button from the Rich Regals button collection when we sold them by family a couple of catalogs ago. We'll have them again in the new catty July 1 under Regals collection. Yippee!
The facing page matches of course with the same color scheme. I used a piece of Dusty Durango polka dot grosgrain ribbon and ran in vertically on the Bella Blue paper for an accent. I attached 5/16 inch Jumbo Brads in Whisper White (#112534) to each end of the ribbon. I have Whisper White designer buttons from the Latte collection (#114333) which picked up a blue cast from the card stock behind them ... a lucky coincidence!
I used the obverse image of the Tulipe die (#113457) cut to sponge it a stencil-like watermark. This die IS retiring at the end of June so if you love it, get it now, especially during my free shipping week. Don't know when that is? E-mail me and I'll send you a copy of my June newsletter with all the deets. I added a clip from the Clips Assortment (#112580) and tied a NON Organdy ribbon around it.
There's a lot of journaling on this page but that's just how it worked out. I'm still getting my "sea legs" where scrapbooking is concerned. I'm still so new at it. I don't know that I'm keep up with pages every Saturday this summer but I'm sure going to try! I'm going to start working on a 6x6 pretty soon and I'm excited to do that. I also have an 8 1/2 x 11 that I'm working on, well, I've done a couple pages anyway!
Scrapbooking takes a while for me, it's kind of a winter sport, you know? Unless it's a hundred degrees outside, which it hasn't been, thank you!
At any rate, hope your scrappin' Saturday is a good one,
God bless you and yours!
