One of the things I love most about Stampin' Up! Designer Series Papers is the awesome color schemes that make it quick and easy to create great projects, and I'll be sharing DSP ideas all month as we are in the Buy 1, Get 3 Free promotion.
My summer scrapbook pages with Tropical Escape Designer Papers are bright, cheery, and fun. I chose a totally neutral and dark background via Basic Black 12 x 12 card stock to make the bright colors really pop. And don't be afraid of pinks on scrapbook pages that feature guys! There are pink flowers all around us, plus those pinks tend to pick up skin tones.
We made this 12 x 12 layout in June with my scrapbook club in San Antonio. You can read all about the scrapbook club here–you can join anytime, so come on out and scrap with us!
Let me point out just a few things about my summer scrapbook pages:
- Large Letters Thinlit Dies are a must-have for any scrapbooker! Here, I punched them out from Granny Apple Green card stock and then ran them through again with the Quilt Top Embossing Folder. The subtle texture on the letters gives interest to my title. This is how you can really rock customized looks for your scrapbook pages! Little touches can make a big difference:)
- Pocketful of Sunshine photopolymer stamp set and coordinating Pocket Framelit Dies work so well on scrapbook pages. Sunglasses and pockets are perfectly sized for handmade cards as well as scrapbook pages for fantastic versatility. Choosing colors for them is a bit like playing paper dolls and so much fun! Additional dies in the set provide even more versatile options.
- Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins are my absolute favorite new embellishment in the new Stampin' Up! Catalog. Again, versatility is one reason I love them. Ease of use is the other since they are adhesive-backed. Quick, easy, and done! Just scatter them across any project for a bit of shine.
That's it for today and my summer scrapbook pages. Thanks so much for stopping by. All Stampin' Up! supplies are listed and linked to my online store below for your convenience. And remember that you can Buy 3, Get 1 Free on select Designer Series Papers all month! Just do it!
