Scrapbook Saturday

Hi Bloggers.

Here's this week's scrapbook page -

This is an 8 x 8 page. The card is Colorcore.

The patterned paper is from the Couture Creations Sew Jo 12 x 12 Paper Pad. With the stamp in my hand, I randomly stamped the Creative Expressions Kitten Treats A6 Background Stamp using Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I cut a border and insert using Spellbinders Ric Rac Edgeabilities Die Set. I inked around the edges with Vintage Photo.

I cut 'Smokey' out of the Colorcore Card using Spellbinders Font One Upper and Lower Case Die Sets.

I cut the heart out of Black Card using Spellbinders Pawing Around (Cat) Die Set.

I cut the 3 pawprints out using the same die set. You can get the pads on the paws in the right place by adding some low tack tape to the back of the dies to keep the shapes in them. Add the glue to the under sides and press them onto the page through the low tack tape. Hope that makes sense!

I cut the mouse and the fish bone out of Black Card using Spellbinders Kitty Play Die Set.

I keep getting asked about the Spellbinders dies that I'm using. Most of them are from the January release of UK Retailer Exclusive Dies so they won't be on TV. You need to ask your local shop to order them in for you from Creative Expressions.

Sue Wilson has shows on Create & Craft today and tomorrow with a Weekender featuring her New York and Gemini Collections plus loads of goodies. First show is at 9am today.

Thanks for stopping by.

  11. Hi Julia. I am really enjoying your Saturday Scrapbook pages - lovely to see dies used in this way. Your Smokey looks a lot like my much loved and missed Mickey.
    Nice to see some different Spellbinders this week and it's great that the retailers are getting something unique. I have just spotted in the sidebar that you will be at the NEC. Hope to see you there - I am building my wishlist already...
