Good Monday morning all!!! WHEW! Very busy weekend with three events but lots of fun stamping and scrapbooking with some new friends - yippee!!! I love to stamp on my scrap pages, it takes two of my favorite loves and mooshes them together to create a WOW!!! Heehee, Loooooove it!!!! So, I thought I would share a fun scrapbook page that I made for my workshop - they actually made the 6x6 page and then I showed them how to take that into a 12x12 layout - too fun!! And, it is all about love to boot! I need to add some pictures still but I have plenty of mushy pics to put on there, lol!!!!  Lots of fun new product used on this layout from the new Occasions Mini Catalog - I swear, they get better each and every time we get a new one and I am not sure quite how they do that but man, I have to have it ALL, heeehee!!!  Just look at that super cute designer patterned paper called Love Impressions (item 121780) - it is totally yummy and I have gone through several packs of it already because it is soooo much fun to play with!  I paired it with some Rose Red and Pink Pirouette card stock and the ribbon is actually Blushing Bride which fits in quite nicely!
Here is the 6x6 page that my workshop ladies go to do!  We used the new stamp set from the mini called Valentine Defined (clear set item 123057).  I had to laugh because I was talking to my sweet husband and when I showed him the layout he said, "oh, you used heart weeds" LOL! So, heart weeds they are :-)  Super cute set, I actually  bought this set for the flamingos but have now used every single stamp, just love it! The stamped and popped up heart is from the I {heart} Hearts stamp set (main catalog, clear item 118571) which is such a great set because you can use our heart punch ( main catalog, item 119883) to punch out the images which makes them really fun to use as embellishments! We added some Whisper White satin ribbon(main catalog, item 114616) which is so soft and yummy - I just love ribbon!
And, here is the sample of taking the 6x6 to the 8.5x11 layout!  You can see how nicely that 6x6 fits and adds so much - just a few added squares for pics, some background stamping, and some pretty embellies and you are done!  They really enjoyed making this layout and some of them even said that they had not tried scrapbooking before but this made it seem doable - and, of course it is!!! Sharing my love of scrapbooking is one of my favorite things to do - it makes me grin from ear to ear!!!! I hope you enjoy seeing this as much as I enjoyed making it!  And, if you are interested in purchasing any of the products that I have shared, you can order online in my online store, or contact me and I will put your order in! Now, I am off to make some fun cards just for me- gotta stamp sometimes just because, right??  I hope you all have a fabulous day, I will be back tomorrow to share another fun layout we did in my scrap club this weekend! Until then, happy stampin'!
