Classy Scraps

Diary of a Paper Crafter

Our Crazy Language October 3, 2009

Filed under: SCRAPBOOK PAGES — classyscraps @ 12:07 am

I thought it would be fun to put together a page documenting the unique language of our family. The products I used were all Jenni Bowlin. I created the title with my Cricut and the Makin’ the GradeĀ  and Opposites Attract cartridges. I painted a chipboard “A” as an accent and created a dictionary page with our unique words (which didn’t photograph all that well).Our Crazy Language

Toyland ParadsI made this tree using green scraps of paper that I pieced together. Thanks for looking!


Love at First Bite May 16, 2009

Love at First BiteI really liked how the color combination worked on this page. I used a Bazzill cardstock called Sandpaper for my base and usedĀ a pale pink mat under my focal picture and title. I cut the heart out with my Cricut and mounted it with Pop Dots. I used a white pen to make dots along the border of the heart and used a glue dot to adhere a knotted piece of felt ric rac. I cut the title out of white using the Making the Grade font from Cricut and put it on a turquoise paper with one scalloped edge (Stampin Up scallop border punch). I also did a sort of subtitle, “food” and used the Opposites Attract Cricut cartridge for that. The three small pictures along the bottom were cropped using a 2″ punch.


Summer at the Library

I was proud of this page because the patterned paper I used has been waiting to go on a page for at least six years! I have a hard time parting with paper even if I never seem to have a use for it. I was really happy with the way the flowers looked on this page even though I had passed on using this paper many times before. I used my Cricut and the Mickey Font and Opposites Attract Font to create the title. I used a tab punch to make the labels and attached them with brads. I used a 2″ square punch to cut the two square pictures. This is one of my favorite tricks for getting lots of pictures on a page and keeping them a uniform size.Summer at the Library


Sweet Smile

This is one of the first of Gracie’s smiles I got on film. I used Stampin Up paper and the Crazy for Cupcakes set to create this page. I used a journal spot from Jenni Bowlin and added a sweet trim I found at my local scrapbook store. The little “the sweetest” label was stamped onto a piece of patterned paper I’d punched with a square scallop punch. I used two button brads to secure them. I stamped and heat embossed the title using my Headline Alphabet stamps (Stampin Up, retired) and a script font from Fontwerks.Sweet Smile


The Claw

When I saw Nathan with his face pressed against the glass of this popular game at our local pizza place I knew it would make a great scrapbook page! His Grandpa tried so hard to get him a ball, but it wasn’t within reach that night. I used yellow cardstock and mounted the two large pictures with red cardstock. I used my Cricut and the Opposites Attract cartridge for the title. The journaling spot was from Jenni Bowlin and the ribbon and square eyelets finished off the page.The Claw


Rainy Weekend April 15, 2009

Filed under: SCRAPBOOK PAGES — classyscraps @ 4:13 am

I love these colors so much together that you will find them in every room of my house! For some reason I never seem to use browns and reds together on a scrapbook page. I tried it this time and I loved the results. I used Jenni Bowlin’s ledger style paper as the background. It doubled as a place to journal. I used my scallop border punch from Stampin’ Up with some solid red cardstock along the top. For the title I used Close To My Heart’s Chocolate Alphabet set. My embellishments were a ticket from Jenni Bowlin and a threaded black button. I think I’ll stick with this color scheme with more pages in the future!rainy-weekend
