April Scrapbook Club Layout

This month we did a Vintage/Heritage layout using the First Edition designer series paper from the Occasions Mini Catalogue.
We started with a Basic Black page base, then layered on the Very Vanilla cardstock and First Editions dsp.  The Vanilla pieces on the ends are embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder using the Big Shot.  We then sponged some black ink on them to age them.  The designer paper strips are stamped in black with images from the Elements of Style set.  I added a strip of Very Vanilla punched with the Scallop Border punch under the designer paper pieces.

To finish it off, we added a couple of Top Note die cut pieces, some Chantilly Crochet Trim and an antique brad.  I stamped the Elizabeth stamp in Whisper White craft ink (I would have used Very Vanilla if I had it!), then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I then stamped the sentiment from Elements of Style in Basic Black ink on Very Vanilla and punched it out with the Scallop Oval punch.  I adhered this on top of the embossed Elizabeth image with Stampin' Dimensionals.  The crochet trim and antique brad connect to the stamped image.

We had lots of fun making this layout and visiting on Monday night at Scrapbooking Club!  Next month, we'll be making a travel-themed layout.

Blessings to you,
