Scrapbooking with Phyllis

I thought today I would share the two page scrapbook spread that we did last weekend at Scrapbooking with Phyllis. These pages were inspired by a demonstrator named Melissa Stout. I'm so fond of the Sending Love DSP and was excited to use it on these pages. Yes, I need to get some photos on these pages, huh!!

I love how the journaling blocks are done with the Top Note Die for a very unique look. On page two, check out the circle embellishments!! The were created using the Circles No. 2 Sizzix Die. That die is so cool -- it punches out four different sized circles (the largest I believe is 2-1/2") at one time!! And, check this out, you can punch all three sheets at one time using the Big Shot! Once the circles are punched out, you distress each circle using the distressing tool in the Cutter Kit, then crumble up the DSP as much as you can. Then you later each circle on top of each other, insert a brad, a ta - da!!!! It is hard to see, but I used a stamped image from With All My Heart on the Chocolate Chip card stock!!

Below are some of the items used to create these pages. I hope this inspires you to create your scrapbook pages!

FYI - along with stamping, I get really excited for snow since we never seem to get it in this area!!! It is way too early in the morning when I'm preparing this post ... and we are supposed to be getting 10" - 15" of snow according to The Weather Channel! I don't think we have had that much cumulatively in the last five years!! Woo hoooooo!!!! For those of you in this area, stay save, stay inside and stamp!!!
