Tonight is week three of Scrapbooking Summer School. I am soooo excited! I just finished making up the packets, and I think everyone is going to be totally tickled, especially with the final homework assignment this week. I'll share more about that tomorrow!
I can't wait to see what everyone did with the homework challenge this week--turning old cardfronts into pages. Some have posted theirs to the 31 Pages in 31 Days Facebook group (free and open to everyone, by the way--just request to join!) so I have had a glimpse of how much they enjoyed this assignment. I have been, too! Here's a page I pulled together using a stunning sample card from an Australian demonstrator friend, Debbie Yeomans. Their cards are a little taller and narrower that cards in the States, and it didn't fit well in my sample basket or display board, so--onto a scrapbook page instead!
I tried to continue her circle theme in addition the the cute color scheme she used of Vanilla, Basic Black and Primrose Petals. I added a Silver Glimmer Paper heart, a ruched strip of newsprint paper, and a Build A Brad. Debbie used reinker and Crystal Effects to great use on her Simply Pressed clay flower, and turned it into a wonderful focal point.
Everything seen here (virtually everything on my blog, in fact) is available to purchase from Stampin' Up through my shopping website, www.lyssa.stampinup.net/shopnow. I'd be so pleased to be your demonstrator and help you with your papercrafting needs, if you don't already have an active, enthusiastic local one!

I hope you've enjoyed my mini-series on incorporating cards into layouts during my big-series featuring 31 Pages in 31 Days. If you're participating from home, please leave me a comment--it encourages me so much to know all my hard work is inspiring crafters all over the world. See you tomorrow!
