Scrapbook page - Lap of Luxury

A Spring Scrapbook Page in the Fall? This morning I pulled out some OLD pictures of my oldest son and decided it was well past time to get them on a scrapbook page. I haven't done a single page of scrapbooking since early last spring and I'm feeling out of practice! I started Stampin' when a couple of my really good friends talked me into it several years ago, but I swore to them then that I would NEVER scrapbook. Well, never say never, it was only a year later that I couldn't resist the scrapbooking urge any longer and I've loved it ever since! Scrapbooking is such a fun part of the stamping hobby and I find it very rewarding. I love some of my pages more than others, but I see that my family loves all of them and they really love looking through our albums and remembering. Scrapbooking is my FAVORITE!

For this page I used some of the pretty patterns from the Lap of Luxury Designer Series Paper. I love the two sided pattern papers from Stampin' Up! and this set is no exception - it's definitely one of my favorite DSP's! The script on the long strip says "Life is Beautiful" and although I covered most of it up, it still makes me happy that it's there. I hung my year tag off an Antique Brad with some Very Vanilla narrow Grosgrain Ribbon. I used a few of my Favorite punches on this page - Decorative Label and Scallop Edge Border. And of course I included a few of my Favorite Rhinestone Jewels on this page as well. I stamped the title piece with Contempo Alphabet and Heat Embossed it - my favorite technique - onto a piece of Elegant Eggplant cardstock die cut with the Top Note Die for the Big Shot.

Here's a closer look at the Decorative Label piece and the turned back corner. I just rolled the corner of the Lap of Luxury DSP paper and adhered it down. Then I adhered a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock behind the turned down area and added a few of the Rhinestone Jewels to the front.
