Mother's Day Tea Scrapbook Page

12"x12" 2-Page Scrapbook Layout

This scrapbook layout features pictures from the Mother’s Day Tea held at Micah’s preschool last year.  I used some of the Cottage Walls Designer Series Paper (DSP) and carried over the colors used in that pack, Orchid Opulence, Rich Razzleberry and Certainly Celery.

Cottage Walls DSP

Around the picture of Jaan I used the Scallop Trim Border Punch.  This punch was available for free during Sale-A-Bration at the beginning of the year.  If you did not get the punch yet, I have good news for you, the punch will be available for purchase in the new Idea Book & Catalog which comes out in July!  I just love this punch!

Itty Bitty Backgrounds stamp set

I began with a base of Very Vanilla cardstock but felt the cardstock needed something.  The background you see is stamped in Certainly Celery craft ink using the Itty Bitty Background stamps.  Those little celery dots added a lot.

Now, have you noticed the Rich Razzleberry dots?  Those are little circles of paper.  I used a hole punch to punch them out and then glued each on individually with our 2-way glue pen.  I know, I’m a little crazy sometimes.  Those little dots will be completely optional for Scrap Club members!    Why did I put them on?  That simple border puts so much focus on the main picture and the title, that’s what I wanted.

I hope you’ve enjoyed these pages.  I look forward to making them with the Scrap Club tomorrow evening at Mason-Dixon Library in Stewartstown, PA.    If you are not familiar with the Scrap Club, we meet the 3rd Monday evening of each month at the library from 6-8 P.M.  In those two hours each of the members puts together 6 scrapbook pages (typically three 2-page layouts) which I have provided for them.  I cut all the pieces (well, most, some of it you cut there on the Big Shot) and walk you through the steps of making the pages.  If you are interested in trying out the club or getting more information please contact me!
