Post Patty

I promised a friend of mine that I will make a St. Patrick's scrapbook page of her baby girl.  I know it's almost a month after the fact, but better late than never.  It's just that when it comes to scrapbooking, the planning stage always take time.  I wish I can do what a lot of scrapbook personalities on TV or craft channels on the internet.  When I watch their videos, putting together a scrapbook page seems so easy.  That's not the case for me, considering I started out as a scrapbooker.  Maybe I just think too much.

But before I show you my latest scrapbook page in forever, I'd like to share with you my latest find:

I blogged about the Stamping Gear in ovals and circles last year (Geared Up), and I used it in one of my cards for Oozak in September.  When I saw the ones in square and rectangle at Joann's, I got really excited.

And that new tool was my inspiration to make this scrapbook page.  I won't be able to stamp around a 12 x 12 cardstock like that without the Stamping Gear.  And I'm glad.

Materials used:
cardstock:  Bazzil, leftovers
image/sentiment:  Studio G, My Sentiments Exactly
ink:  Stampin' Up
tools:  Inkadinkado Stamping Gear, Martha Stewart, Cuttlebug embossing folder
embellishments:  chipboard alpha (DCWV), stickers, flower w/ bling
misc.:  embossing powder, journaling stencil
adhesive:  Scotch, Glue Dots, mounting tape

In the next photo, you can see I included an insert for journaling.

These images were stamped and heat embossed, then cut with Spellbinders.

Yes, I'm on a roll.... 'til next blog!
