Remember Lovely as a Tree

How long has it been since you stamped with Lovely as a Tree?

It is one of Stampin’ Up!s top selling stamp sets and I recently pulled it out to make this card.

Lovely-as-TreeI also pulled out a color that I hadn’t used recently – Always Artichoke.  It’s been a while.

This is a “window” card.  Well that’s what I call it – since I cut a “window” out of the card front with a framelit and my Big Shot and the stamped image is underneath it.  Stamp on the Whisper White piece and layer it on the inside of the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Before you add the white use the Paper Piercer, the Piercing mat and the template to match the framelit to add the piercing around the frame.

I stamped a simple sentiment and added some Linen Thread.  A quick and clean card.  I hope you like it.


On the Trail – Scrapbook layout

Today I wanted to share a scrapbook layout from last month’s class.  This was actually a layout I made at least a year or more ago – but I updated it to use the new Autumn Meadows Designer Series paper and colors and changed the accent pieces, stamp sets, etc.  So it looks completely different.

The left page has the pockets with the tags that pull out for hidden journaling or extra photos.  You could add more if you needed. 

I doodled around the edges with a chocolate chip marker and did alot of sponging.  The stamp set is Lovely as a Tree – it is good for so many things.  I plan to add my hiking pictures from our fall break mini vacation to Red Top Mtn. 

It looks like the rain followed me from Georgia to Virginia.  But it is cold here and I didn’t bring that along – it was at least warm at home.  Time to go to the craft room and start stamping! 

Have a great day!
