Rooted In Nature

Rooted in Nature

Today’s share combines the woodsy stamp set, Rooted In Nature, with the woodsy Designer Series Paper, Wood Textures, to create a quick & easy greeting card!  By letting Stampin’ Up! supply the coordinating products, you’ll find that no matter what you choose for colour and/or designs, everything will look great together!  I can see myself using this greeting for a Birthday Card, a Thinking of You Card, a Card of Encouragement or a Congratulations Card!  Do you have any other suggestions?

September 2018 Scrapbook Layout

The ladies who come to my monthly scrapbook club always have positive comments about the pages I’ve designed for them.  A few months ago we agreed that I wouldn’t put titles on the pages so they could be individualized for their own pictures!  This has become our standard.

Preparing my pages this way results in being able to use a greater variety of stamps, ink, and paper each month.  Even though designing the pages takes me a few days because I like to start with what I have available for the number of gals who’ll be attending, leave my desk for a while, come back and see what needs to be moved around, added or deleted.

The final step is to attach all the pieces, take a picture of the final pages and post on my blog, on my Facebook Business page and on Instagram!

Pictures for these pages could be for finishing a school year or starting one, for completing a project or starting one, or for reaching for the stars in your daily lives!  We always have a lot of fun creating a double page spread each month and welcome others to join us so let me know if you’re interested.
