This is one of the scrapbook pages from my March scrapbook class. It features the SO TWEET On Board Chipboard. We colored the chipboard owl and branch using Craft ink and sponge daubers. The large scallop edge is made with the 1″ circle punch. Punch a bunch of 1″ circles and then attach them to the back of the card stock so that half of each circle is showing to form a large scallop egdge. On the So Saffron background I stamped the image from the Good Friend stamp set in So Saffron classic ink.
The chipboard bird is covered with Designer Series paper. I lay my chipboard piece face down on the back side of the paper and trace with a pencil. Then cut it out. I use the Anywhere Glue Stick to adhere the paper to the chipboard. This gives you some “wiggle” room to slide your paper into position exactly where you want it. And I like to go back with a sanding block and sand the edges. If there is alot of overlapping paper I trim it with my paper snips before sanding. The eye, legs and beak were colored with the craft inks and a sponge dauber. This little bird is singing “Happy Birthday! Happy Birthday!”. The stamp is from the Stem Saying stamp set and works perfectly for a singing bird.
When we visited my parents this week we also celbrated my birthday. I haven’t seen them or my brother and his family in over a month (before my birthday), so this was our first chance to get together. I didn’t know my mom had a cake for me but she did and everyone sang happy birthday to me too. I have some pictures and think they will be perfect on this page. I need to get them printed soon and get them on here.
Please visit the other blog I created for the WowSrapbookKits that Wendy and I are doing. Go to wowscrapbookkits.wordpress.com to get all the details. There is also a permanent link on my Blog roll on the right sidebar. I am making a list of questions that people have asked about the kits and I will post on that blog soon with the answers.
Have a Happy Scrappin’ Day!
