PUNCH BOOK UPDATE: Well, I'm still on track and VERY happy!!! The punch books will be shipped out on Wednesday. I will have some extra books available for purchase and will have these on my blog either Wednesday or Thursday once I hear back from a few people. I have also decided to sell the PDF of the creations that are NOT in any of my Simply Punches classes as a separate document. The money raised from this PDF will be donated to our local food bank and will go on sale on Wednesday of this week. Thanks so much for asking!
Well, many of you weren't sure if you were reading it correctly. BUT yes, we are expecting number four this fall. I figured you'd figure out soon enough (beyond the obvious should you see me in person) but I am starting to prepare and scrapbook. Because my brother is due and I am expecting I figured running the Simply Babies class was an obvious and "needed" class. I can't wait to show you some of the projects I have coming up for this one....thanks to all of you that have already signed up! This class begins July 1st.
This scrapbook page has a little bit of a sneak peek on it for you. Isn't the DSP just so CUTE??? LOVE the little elephants! And how appropriate for this page of the little munchkin?
I have the little scallop envelopes on the page for my hidden journaling. I am going to have Adam, Emma and Mark (and I already did) write a little message to the baby for future reference. How sweet will that be to look back on? And to keep the envelopes shut, I used my 2 Way Glue pen....yes, 2 way means 2 ways to use it!!! It can be permanent (apply to paper and attach layers immediately) or temporary (apply to paper, let dry and then it acts like a sticky note!)
Here is a quick recipe for this page:
- 12 x 12 Chocolate Chip
- two 1/2 x 12 inch strips of DSP (the green that borders the title)
- 2 3/4 x 12 inch strip of DSP for the title
- Serif Alphabet for the Big Shot
- 5 3/4 x 12 So Saffron
- photos are 3 1/2 x 2 3/4 and mounted on Whisper White 3 5/8 x 2 7/8
- 1 inch x 12 strip of dotted DSP then scalloped and adhered under the So Saffron
- 2 1/2 x 12 inch strip of the elephant DSP
- Button Latte and Linen Thread (adhered with glue dots)
- Scallop Envelope for the Big Shot in Close to Cocoa
I realize my dimensions don't add up to 12 inches for my cardstock but it is on a 12x12 page. I adjusted the widths of my layers as I was attaching them (making some layers smaller) to fit my photos.
Hope you like the page and I'll see you again tomorrow:)
