Spring/Easter Scrapbooking Layouts

Here are the scrapbooking layouts for my Spring Stamp Camp which will take place on Tuesday, March 16 from 7-10 p.m.  The same layouts will also be available for all the ladies who will be attending the Sophisticated Socials Ocean City Crop the weekend of March 19-21.  Don’t forget to register by Saturday, March 13 by sending me an e-mail to sweadon@hotmail.com.

The first layout shown is an Easter two-page layout featuring the Lovely Letters Alphabet and the cute little Chocolate Bunny from the Mini Occasions catalog. 

Easter Layout - Page 1

I wheeled the background of the paper using the Watercolor Vine and Creamy Caramel ink. The wheels are a quick tool for making your own special background paper and are easy to use.  I’ve only added a few photograph mats using the Top Note Die, but you may add additional ones if you have more photos. The little flowers on the corners are a nice attention to detail.

I’ve also included a close up of the journal box on this page.

Some scrappers think you can’t use stamps to make a scrapbooking layout, but if you take this class, you will see how you can’t live without them! I learned to scrap this way – you can make all your own embellishments, especially if you have the right stamp sets. And one can never have too many stamps! LOL! Stampin’ Up! stamp sets are great because they coordinate with each other and usually feature one or two main images and a few for accents and background stamping.

The second page of the layout includes the Chocolate Bunny. This stamp is a definite keeper and the price is awesome for this little guy – only $7.95! I used the new Tiny Tags set to give him a cute little tag and attached it with some linen thread.

Here is a closeup of the bunny – doesn’t he look just delicious!

Spring will be here in one week and I can’t wait for it after one of the worst winters in years here in Maryland. Say goodbye to the snow and bring on the flowers along with the Shades of Spring:

I used the Upsy Daisy stamp set to give me that great row of flowers at the bottom of my layout. Solid image stamps like this one are great for making borders.

The Level 1 Hostess stamp set “Of the Earth” has wonderful images of Spring and I’ve been wanting to use it for awhile now, but needed just the right reason. And I think I found it in this layout. The images from this set made for beautiful embellishments and awesome additions to these pages.

Spring Layout Tag Embellishment

You’ll find as you look through the Idea Book & Catalog that Stampin’ Up! has some of the best artists creating their images and there are many more like the ones featured in this Hostess set. I used the Sizzix Bigz Two Tags Die to make the white tag background on this particular embellishment. It’s the same one I used in my previous post to make the bookmark.

Friendship Embellishment

A technique I used on the flowers in the Friendship Embellishment is one called “Thumping”. You start out by inking up your main image in a light colored ink, then take a Stampin’ Marker of coordinating dark ink and while holding your stamp upside down “thump” the marker onto your image randomly. Then “huff” on your stamp to rewet the image and then stamp down onto your paper. I know it sounds silly, but it really does rewet the ink. This technique gives you the multi-colored image shown on the embellishment to the right.

I am excited to be doing some scrapbooking layouts at last as many of my customers have been asking for them. See you in class or down the ocean Ladies!
