Hostess 10 Scrap Book Pages

I'm really excited about this month's Scrapbook Pages, in fact I'm so excited I have two layouts for you to choose from. You can make both for $18/$15(Hostess Special) or just one for $10/$8 (Hostess Special).

May 28, 2009 (Thursday)
2:00 PM to 8:00 PM
@ Lisa's house
**call Lisa to reserve your kit**

You must bring your own adhesive/glue, paper cutter and scissors

This first layout I borrowed the idea from my StampIn Buddy, Amber. I just fell in Love with the colors, the designer series paper and how she used a 6X6 layout on a 8 1/2 X11 page then added that to a 12X12 page, she is so creative. This kit will contain 2 sheets of the Good Morning Sunshine Designer Series paper (page 160) plus all the card stock, ribbon and brads needed to complete both pages. This month all designer series paper is on sale, Buy any 3 packages and get a 4th for FREE!



The 2nd layout is in honor of Mother's Day (you can stamp any title you wish, but it can't be more than 7 letters). Your kit will contain 1 sheet of double sided paper and 1 sheet of self adhesive die cuts for the Sunshine Garden Simply Scrappin' Kit (page 164), plus all the cardstock, ribbon and brads needed to complete both pages.


Techniques we will work on at this camp: 1) Stamping with craft ink, 2) embossing on your scrapbook pages, 3) using the circle scissor plus

SIU colored cardstock

Can you believe it, May is National Scrapbook month! We can avoid all house work, cooking, washing, kids, and everything else all month and just scrap book. Yeah, right! My only complaint is why the month of May? We've been cooped up inside all winter, November through April. Now the snow has melted, the grass is greening up and the weather is warming up, we want to be outside. Don't you think National Scrapbook month should be January or February when were shut ins? To much snow and cold weather to go any where.

Okay for my next soap box, some of you may have already heard this, but I just love StampIn' Up! card stock (all colors), it just seems to match other company's patterned paper. I don't know why but it does. SIU does carry some awesome patterned paper (which are on sale this month) but so do other company's. And the quality and weight of SIU colored cardstock is out of this world, I haven't found another card stock the compares.

I just wanted to show off, some winter scrapbook pages I made at the Scrap Book Expo in March. Of course I can't bring my entire scrapbook room, so I choose to bring a few punches, SIU markers, just a couple of stamp sets I might use and a large variety of SIU colored card stock and pictures.

StampIn' Up! products I used: Old Olive and Not Quite Navy Card stock, scallop circle punch and 1 3/8" circle punch and snail adhesive.
Okay, I'll have to admit I can't remember what company this patterned paper is from but the Old Olive and Not Quite Navy matched perfect.

This months SIU special: buy any 3 packages of patterned paper or 12X12 textured card stock and receive a 4th package for FREE! What a great deal!
