I used the samples on page 125 as inspiration in Sahara Sand, Elegant Eggplant and Soft Suede. I CASED the Scallop Circle Embellishment from one of these cards and used the design idea of a ruffled ribbon and tag for a portion of my title. I ran the First Edition Designer Series Paper through my Big Shot with the Scallop Circle Die and then stamped on it with images from the Extreme Elements stamp set in Soft Suede. I ran a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock through the Big Shot with one of the Designer Frames Embossing Folders and then cut it out along the outside of the embossed frame. I stamped on this piece and then lightly sponged the outside of the framed with a Sponge Dauber and Soft Suede ink. This is layered up with Chantilly Crochet Trim and Wisteria Wonder Ruffled Ribbon, a Vintage Mini Tag, Vintage Trinket Button Brad, Antique Brad and some Basic Pearls and flowers from the Itty Bitty Punches.
I even added a journaling block to this page, as small as it is, instead of free handing writing around the photos. The title on this page is stamped using two different Stampin' Up! alphabets, Monogram Sweet Alphabet and Spencerian Alphabet Lower. This is stamped in Soft Suede ink on a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock and I free hand cut the banner tips. I layered the banner over a piece of Soft Suede cardstock which is embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. The 2011 portion of the title is cut with the Timeless Type Alphabet for the Big Shot and then embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder and lightly sponged.
