Leadership Scrapbook Page Make & Take

Make & Takes are one of the fun activities we do while at the stampin’ up leadership conference.  It’s a time to catch up with old friends and new while crafting and creating new samples for classes and workshops.

This year, I was selected as a Make & Take Helper for the Leadership conference… so I got to make my samples earlier this month.  It's a really hush-hush thing… the helpers are all sworn to secrecy.  But now the secret is out… and you have an opportunity to win some of the supplies used in today’s scrap book page too!  Be sure to read THIS post about my Blog Candy Give-Away!  P1090420

This is the 12x12 scrapbook page sample I created using the Blossom Builders Designer Printed Kit from page 18 of the Occasions Mini Catalog along with the Mixed Bunch Stamp Set!  The kit comes with two pages of die cut flowers, and a sheet of pretty pink rhinestone jewels in 7mm and 2mm sizes.P1090423

The background Concord Crush card stock was stamped along the right side using matching ink and the Mixed Bunch Stamp Set.  Layered blossoms adorning page were created using the blossom builders kit, mixed bunch stamped and punched images, along with blossom bouquet triple layer punched images and circle punches.


Clear Rhinestone Jewels, Basic Pearls, and pink rhinestones adorn both blossoms and stamped images.P1090430

Aren’t all the layered blossoms pretty?  I particularly like the one in the lower left corner.  P1090419Since my page was assembled at home, I was able to use a white craft ink pad and sponge to color the edges of a circle punched scrap of Poppy Parade Card Stock.  The white punched pieces were intentionally left in place, secured on the back with stampin’ dimensional pop dots.P1090421

This library clip was included in our ‘kit’ and is a full sized clip, not the mini ones I generally use on my cards.P1090418

The beautiful young lady happens to be our DD, sporting hair that I styled, and gown which I made for that occasion.  LOL, the Flirtatious Specialty Designer Series Paper above her head almost looks like a tiara!P1090434

Just for fun, I added a little dimension to the rhinestone necklace she was wearing in the photo… with a medium Rhinestone Jewel!P1090436

The scrapbook page is a virtual bouquet of flowers and overall has a LOT of dimension, and is suitable for framing don’t you think?

The blossom builders die cuts were used on ALL my leadership Make & Take samples… and I still have a FULL sheet left to make stuff with.. there are a LOT of blooms on each page!

See you tomorrow with more Mixed Bunch, Blossom Punch and Leadership Make & Takes Samples!  I look forward to reading your comments!

Wow, Sharon. Not only is she georgeous, but the page is, too. I haven't tried the fower pack yet, but you sold me.

Kelly Wentling said...

Oh my Sharon, this is stunning!! That is a BEAUTIFUL picture of your daughter and this scrapbook page should go into a shadowbox frame. It is lovely with all the flower layers and bright colors. I love the background stamping on the edge and corners too. You did a fabulous job!
