It's All Good!

Last night was stamp club night, and like always we had fun visiting, eating & stampin'! Hostess of the month - Kim, brought a super yummy dessert called Lemon Berry Trifle Thanks Kim!

I prepared a scrapbook page and a pocket card for everyone to make. The scrapbook page used a combination of different sets to create a fun and happy page. I have been wanting to use It's All Good along with Pick A Petal for a scrapbook page so that was my inspiration. Normally I have photos I want to use and that's where I decide my color scheme, but since I wasn't sure which photos I was going to use I took my color cue from the designer paper I chose - the Flowers For You assortment. I figured these papers would work well with the bold images from the Pick A Petal set and the other assorted flower stamps I planned to use. See the striped "ribbon" down the side? This was created by scoring and folding over the double-sided paper.
Since Live Your Dreams is one of my favorite new stamps sets, of course I had to use the cute line stamp in that set to create a journaling block! First I stamped the Live, Laugh & Love stamp in the bottom corner, masked it with a post-it note and used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to add the lines so they didn't end up crooked. Then I used my markers to ink up the cute little line of flowers at the top - also from the Live Your Dream set.

I gave everyone a choice of which piece of patterned paper they would like to use for their page and what color they would like for the background. Each one picked a different patterned piece so the finished pages all looked unique. It was fun for me to see how each page turned out looking so different just with those little changes. They all did a great job, don't you think?!

This is Kim and her Sister-in-law Jill.

Here's Rachel & Miriam

Rachel, please note how nice I am...I used the good photo and not the one I threatened you with! (Don't worry, I didn't delete may come in handy for future use! ;^) Both Cheri and Tami were absent - we missed you guys! and somehow Michelle managed to avoid the out next time you three!

Stamps: Pick a Petal, It's All Good, Live Your Dream, Make It Count (hostess set), Always (I used just one flower...see if you can spot it) & the Spunky Spots jumbo wheel
Ink: Regal Rose, Certainly Celery, Tempting Turquoise (stamped off once) Lavender Lace & White Craft
Card stock: Flowers For You DP, Regal Rose, Certainly Celery, Lavender Lace & Whisper White
Accessories: Mat Pack, White gel pen, various Circle punches, Photo Corner punch, Stamp-a-Ma-Jig

The pocket card was created using the Wild Wasabi pre-scored card stock from the Wild For Wasabi promotion. I had to trim it down a bit so that the finished card would fit in a standard envelope. I thought this would be a cute little card to give someone next time they ask for a recipe. Or maybe give as a little thank you card to someone who hosted a potluck type could include the recipe for the dish you brought to pass.

Can you tell I'm just loving the Live Your Dream stamp set and the matching Afternoon Tea papers? I can't stop reaching for them every time I stamp lately. The pullout is a recipe card using From the Kitchen Of stamp set and the same color scheme I used for the cards in my recipe box set.

I had fun last night...I hope you all did as well.
