10/7 Stampin' Up! 12x12 Elegant Scrapbook Pages

I love the Mocha Morning Specialty Designer Series Paper . . . but it was too pretty to use!! Ever had THAT happen to you?? I know . . . crazy! But, I loved it so much that I even purchased an extra pack. And there it sat unopened. And, then I attended a local Leadership Meeting and what do I see? But the most BEAUTIFUL pages EVER!! I copied them "almost" exactly. (I added the ribbon . . . lol!)

All the accolades go to my stampin' demo friend Rachel Tessman. She is the creator of these amazing pages and I got her permission to share them with you!! I feel so lucky to have such a kind and creative friend like Rachel. I just can't wait to show them off to my customers. (Even MORE GORGEOUS IN PERSON!) Thanks a MILLION, Rachel!!

The "curtains" on these pages are made with a 3" strip of the flocked paper. It's scored every 1/4". That's a snap when you use the Simply Scored Tool. I did find that on the black curtain, there was a little bit of cracking when I folded the creases. To camouflage these white streaks, I ran a black journaling pen along the creases and it worked like a charm.

The leaves are cut with the Big Shot Machine and the Little Leaves Sizzlit Die. The paper is Brushed Gold. So, so elegant. The flowers are all from the Fun Flowers Die. The bigger flower at the bottom has a 5 Petal Punch piece added as well. The centerpieces of the flowers are Antique Brads.

I mentioned that I added one little element . . . the Soft Suede Taffeta Ribbon. My new favorite ribbon . . . easy to work with and just gorgeous in color.
