September club

Last night I held my September stamp club. I wanted to show the girls what Mary Polcin taught us all at convention, how to incorporate a 6x6 page into an 8 1/2 x 11 and then into a 12 x 12 so that you can fit everyone's scrapbooks. I used the 8x8 page we created as a make and take at Convention for the inspiration. I had the girls create the 6x6 page that is included in this layout. It is the ruby red page. I should have taken pictures of the steps before I glued them all together, but you will have to use your imagination this time. For those of you who were not at convention, the 6x6 page fits onto the 8 1/2 x 11 page and you just add a few more pictures and elements. Then, if you do 12x12, you put the finished 8 1/2 x 11 page onto the 12x12 and add a few more elements to create the finished page. I also wanted to show them the Big Shot which we used for the Baja Breeze flower on the 6x6 page.

Ingredients: Paper: Ruby red, Baja Breeze, Old Olive, and More Mustard CS.
Stamps: Flight of the Butterfly.
Accessories: Designer buttons, On board loads of letters, Hidden Garden Rubons, Big Shot Birds & Blooms die, scallop edge punch, Vanilla tafeta ribbon died with rose red ink.

This technique was very fun and I hope to do a lot more of it. Hopefully it will make the scrapbooking a bit easier.

Rember to comment for a chance to win the pack of 5 cards from the last post!

Happy Stampin!

I like the idea of being to use a smaller page on the 12 x 12 page. Thanks for sharing the idea.
