7/25 Stampin' Up 12x12 Summer Scrapbook Pages

One of the swaps at Convention that participated in this year was one for 12x12 pages. I was so excited about this one because it takes quite a bit of time to come up with ideas for my pages each month and it will be nice to have several on hand to choose from.

My contribution to the swap was a set of summery pages showcasing designer series paper from the pack called Floral District. Each page features a garden flag and scalloped banners. The banners were easy to make. Just use your 1 3/8" circle punch and punch the circles right out of the DSP, then cut in half.

Here's a close up of one of the garden flags. I used the stamp set called Betsy's Blossom. Skinny strips of Silver Glimmer paper and couple of well placed rhinestones added just the right amount of "bling" to my pages.

I personalized each page with the initial of the last name of each person participating in the swap. For most of the letters, I used Broadsheet Alphabet . . . but the "R" turned out to be a little too big for the Apothecary Accents framelit die I was using on the "flag." In that one particular case, I used an "R" from Lovely Letters Alphabet and that looked nice, too.

Stamping to Share Tip of the Day: This picture shows a little trick to make it look like you used a whole panel of DSP . . . but actually, you are only using strips 3/4" wide around the border. When you add the next layer or the photo, it looks like you have a full sheet of DSP below. You can see how I used this idea at the bottom of the left hand page.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! I really appreciate you and I enjoy receiving your comments and emails about my posts - they make my day!! Thanks!!
