It's Scrappin' Saturday!

Happy Saturday morning my stampin' pals!
How are you? Well, I hope. Today I continue with the Scrappin' Saturday birthday calendar!

This is the August page. I'll be posting a different month each Scrappin' Saturday for a while. We're on the second of twelve Saturdays for obvious reasons so if you missed last week you can just page back in the archives. I didn't start with January because I thought some of you might want to make cards out of the pages or use them in summer scrapping so most of my calendar pages will be out of order.

I used Chocolate Chip, Really Rust and Summer Sun for the cardstock. I have some retired DSP for the patterned Kraft paper and some Watercolor paper where I stamped the image. These can easily be adapted to Chocolate Chip, Cajun Craze, Daffodil Delight and Kraft paper (Crumb Cake) run through the Big Shot with a texture plate of some design.

The flower was made using the Daisy #2 die and the Flower Burst sizzlet die for the Big Shot. I used a sponge dauber to darken up the petals with Ch Chip. The little sunflower and pot image is from A Flower for All Seasons stamp set. I colored the image with Stampin' Write markers and bled them with aquapainters. I love that look on WC paper! I roughed up the edges of the WC paper as well. The leaves were cut with the Little Leaves sizzlet. I hope SU! gets more leaves of various types in for their dies. I love this one and use it all the time.

Next week I'll post another calendar page for you. Take care and happy stamping!
Much love and joy,



  1. Love the sunflower, Karen! So pretty and such a great image for August! I don't have that die yet, but I have had my eye on it! TFS!

  2. Love this page - it feels like summer!
