Life Definitions scrapbook layout

This is the third layout for my step-Nan’s 90th album. 

I loved putting this layout together because each page has a theme based on the photo.  The spotty page is all spotty theme because all the ladies in the photo have spotty dresses on.  And the second theme is obvious, because there is snow in the photo!

For the spotty theme, I used Parisian Breeze DSP for the base page, as well as for the thick Baja Breeze strip.  I’ve stamped the heart from Priceless and cut it out and stuck it above “DJs”.  The “DJs” was stamped from Defining Alphabet and cut out and layered over squares punched from Stampin’ Up!’s square punches.  The ladies in the photo love to shop at David Jones … hence, the “DJs”.

There is a strip of Baja Breeze 1″ wide grosgrain across the page and the stamped “R” is from Defining Alphabet, which has the definition for “Remember” next to it, stamped from Life Definitions (also known as Define Your Life).

The base for this layout is from Ski Slope DSP.  The “SNOW” has been stamped from Lovely Letters Alphabet and then cut out and layered over punched out squares from Stampin’ Up!’s square punches.  Again, the stamped “F” is from Defining Alphabet, which has the definition for “Favourite” next to it, stamped from Life Definitions.

It’s hard to see the spotty dresses with my night-time photography 😦

Spring Mini scrapbook layout

My next scrapbook layout for my step-Nan’s 90th album was entirely inspired by the Spring Mini Catalogue.  Page 4, to be precise.  Of course, the scrapbook page in the Spring Mini is 6 x 6 and mine is 12 x 12, so there are differences!

I’ve used textured card stock – Baja Breeze and Basic Grey – as my base colours.

I’ve then punched a thin strip of Basic Grey Textured card stock with my Eyelet Border punch, layered it with a wider strip of Walk in the Park DSP and then embellished with 1″ Baja Breeze striped grosgrain ribbon.  A little bit of white tafetta ribbon is tied to the Baja Breeze ribbon.

On the facing page, I then punched a thin strip of Parisian Breeze DSP with my Eyelet Border punch, layered it with a wider strip of Walk in the Park DSP and then embellished with So Saffron grosgrain ribbon (from last month’s promo).  A little bit of Kiwi Kiss/Very Vanilla satin ribbon is tied to the So Saffron ribbon

The inside of each layout was stamped in Basic Grey with the flower from Friends 24-7.  I stamped and cut out the butterfly from the stamp set Great Friend in Baja Breeze and So Saffron.  I also stamped and cut out the frame from Great Friend.  The oval punch images came from the Summer Love Rub Ons, available in the Spring Mini.  Finally, corduroy buttons finished off each page.

And this is the layout with photos …
