Stamp Something Scrapbook Challenge

Since I've been in scrappin' mode lately I had to take part in this weeks challenge at the Stamp Something blog. This was kind of a tough one because the layout had to be about yourself. I've done layouts with an occasional photo of myself (along with everyone else) but never a page just about me. I had a hard time even thinking up a title...but once I got going it wasn't too hard. Here are the elements the layout must contain:

  • Three Buttons

  • Four Brads

  • Two different ribbons

  • Some sort of lettering for the title

  • At least two stamped items

  • Make the page about YOU with at least five facts listed on your page!
I think I met all the requirements, but in case you are counting...I admit that I did have to use an extra brad. Hope it was OK to go over.

Here is my favorite element on the page:

I used one of the largest flower from the pretties kit and dyed it with the new Pink Pirouette reinker and my aqua painter. I punched out a circle of Berry Bliss paper and adhered it to a chipboard circle and covered it with Crystal Effects. When these were dry I attached them together with a pink rhinestone brad.

The big L is clear embossed on a piece of Berry Bliss patterned paper, but that doesn't really show up too well here. I had fun making this layout because I never get to do really girly pages since I live in a house full of guys.

Stamps: Baroque Motifs, Outline & Typeset alphabets, Monogram L
Card stock: Pretty in Pink, Pink Pirouette, Close to Cocoa & Berry Bliss DP
Ink: Close to Cocoa, Pink Pirouette & VersaMark
Accessories: Clear EP, Soft Subtle Buttons, Pretties kit, chocolate & pink organdy ribbons, rhinestone brads, various punches

Thanks for another fun challenge!

Lynn, I was out of town when you posted this and didn't see it. It's a wonderful layout with many great details. I don't work on scrapbooking much since taking up stamping and mostly cardmaking the last several years. It've got it all set out and trying to get back to it though. Hats off to ya! It's a great page!
