I enjoyed getting back into scrabooking after the holidays, at Scrap A Stack Club in January. If you'd like to join us for FREE one night and see if this club is a good fit for your needs, the next meeting is February 16th at 6:30 p.m. in Watertown. Just email me by the 10th so I can cut enough cardstock!
This is one of the spreads we made. I really like the bold, almost Asian-inspired look of the patterns and colors. It uses the Timeless Portrait papers and some very lush embellishments like the Beveled Windowpanes, Chantilly Lace, Paper Daisies, Large Basic Pearls, Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, and even a Neutrals Glimmer Brad in Basic Black. The touch of River Rock helped keep the feel modern and light.
I heat-embossed the headline in Basic Black using a stamp from the AWESOME Loving Thoughts stamp set in the new mini catalog. I am SO glad I got this set, as not only is it sized just large enough for scrapping, it also fits in both the Apothecary Art and Take it To Heart stamp sets, so I use it constantly with my new Framelits! One of Stampin' Up's primary qualities is complete coordination, and it saves me so much time and money and space.
