Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia are participating. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you this month - all spotlighting New Products in the January - June Mini catalog and the January-February Sale-A-Bration catalog.
I started with a strip of Basic Black 4" wide and 8 1/2" long - then scored it at 6" and 6 5/8" along the long side - this made it easy to wrap around and attach with tear tape to the back of the notebook.
Then I got to decorating the layers for the front - a collage of my favorite sayings from the set, then a layer of red and a layer of white with the scissors image at the bottom - I colored the leaves with Old Olive. Next I punched the Crafters gonna craft saying out using our postage stamp punch and two additional black punched out pieces, which I cut in half - one horizontal and the other vertically.
This allowed me to build a frame around my sentiment - by adding the pieces to the back on top, bottom and each side.
I hope you enjoyed my post and would love it if you'd leave me a comment. Now click on through to the rest of those hopping this month to see all of their wonderful creations! ~Maureen
