Club mini page

At our monthly stamp club, we wanted to get back to offering a 6x6 scrapbook page for those who are more into the scrapping fun of stamping. I used the colors in the Beau Chateau designer series paper to inspire this page. I had worked on a project this winter using Hello Doily, embossed and burnished on a neutral background, that just isn't working out the way I wanted it to, but the concept looked so good I knew I would use it again soon.

Of course, the photo panel is empty. It is not glued in, to allow the user to properly crop the photo of their choice and maybe trim the mat if needed. The pink and blue panels are glued into a pocket rather than being attached completely. Hello Doily is stamped in Versamark onto Crumb Cake card stock and heat embossed using white embossing powder. After the embossing has cooled, burnish around and inside the doily with Soft Suede ink. Wipe of the excess from the white using a facial tissue. The butterfly and key are part of the Elementary Elegance Sale-A-Bration set. The butterfly is stamped in Marina Mist ink, stamped off once; the key is Crumb Cake, full strength. The mat is cut from Soft Suede card stock, as is the Lace Ribbon Punch strip. The sentiment is from Word Play, stamped in Marina Mist on matching card stock and torn; matted onto Pink Pirouette which is torn to complement the MM layer. I like that the supplies used are fairly minimal but there are a couple of techniques used, making this a simple page for beginners.

Here is the page with the mat removed. Hope you enjoyed it! I love the doily image and need to find lots more uses for it. Thanks for stopping by!
