~~ Scrappin' Saturday.....Working on our 1st Acrylic Album

Here are a few pictures of me and De (our SBS21 Stampin De-Va and blog mom) spending a couple hours together at My Scrappin' Den yesterday, Saturday. We were working on our very first acrylic album. We didn't get a chance to finish it because we both had Halloween parties to get ready for......although I would have RATHER stay home playing with paper, if you know what I
Anyway......I can tell that our acrylic albums are going to be very cool, really precious. I will post mine here as soon as I finish it and I'm sure that De will do the same. You can visit De's blog site by clicking HERE.
We used Close To My Heart's NOTEBOOK paper pack and all the embellishments & ribbons are CTMH products. I love this paper design and can't wait until I can share my finished project with all of you.
Thanks for stopping by.....and remember....... you are always welcome to My Scrappin' & Stampin' Den.

It's A Dog's Life ~*~ SBS#21 Challenge using CTMH Sarsaparilla paper pack

I did the 2 page layout for our SBS#21 challenge posted by De....It was a lot of fun. I chose to display pictures of my darling little "grand-pups" because they are such a huge part of mine and my husband's life.
I used handwritten journaling along with paper tearing & scissor edge-distressing, which are 2 of my favorite forms of distressing. I also did second generation stamping using my Barn Red ink "shadowing" the title stamped with black ink.
All products used are from Close To My Heart, except for the ribbon from Micheals.
  • Sarsaparilla paper pack (X7098B)
  • Tiny Typewriter Alphabet acrylic stamp set (D1222)
  • Delightful Alphabet acrylic stamp set (D1221)
  • Mature's Ambience Rub-Ons (Z1097) - I used the black florishes....pack has a page of brown, white and black rub-ons....VERY cool!!
  • Black ink pad (Z2105)
  • Barn Red ink pad (Z2104)
  • Square silver brads and silver hinges (Z291)
  • Clear buttons (CON073)
  • Tan Hemp (Z280)

All of the above CTMH products can be viewed by clicking HERE.

The close up pictures are to give you a better look at the detail embellishing.

I used Liquid Glass (Z679) to adhere the clear buttons to the plaid print paper, then I cut out the "altered" button and glued it onto my layout page. I did this because I wanted the buttons to coordinate with the B&T plaid print and to bring a little bit more of the blue colors into my scrapbook page.

Thanks for taking the time to drop into My Scrappin' Den to view what I've been working on....I also appreciate your thoughts and comments.

I would love to know what you like the most about this layout and if you think I should've done anything different.
