Scrapaholics Unite Session 2 Class 12

I love when I can use embellishments that I've been holding onto forever as I feel justified then in hoarding my vast supply of scrapbooking stuff. These feathers I got in a warehouse box from Bella Blvd almost 2 years ago. The feathers fit in perfectly with the new Jackson paper pack. This hexagon layout from Scrapbook Generation worked so well, I only modified it slightly. I popped up a couple of the photos and the title, and was able to cut out all of the hexagons on my Cricut in a couple of minutes. Once the pattern was set, it was fairly easy to finish. 

This is the last class of this session. I'm hoping to start another session in the fall, but I'll definitely be posting some projects from the retreat that is coming up the first weekend in May. Stay tuned!

Scrapaholics Unite Session 2 Class 11

This is the new Blossom paper from the Seasonal Expression 2 catalogue. It's bright and summery so what better theme to choose than ice cream! This is the June Stamp of the Month so if you like this stamp set as much as I do, you are able to purchase it during the month of June! I accented with some oversized brads I had. 

To add some 3D element to the ice cream, I first stamped on the base page in the neutral Desert Sand. I then stamped the ice cream again on an extra piece of cardstock in the colors, cut out what I wanted popped and then adhered with 3D foam tape.

Scrapaholics Unite Session 2 Class 10

I'm highlighting the Love Ya Silly stamp set from the Seasonal Inspirations 1 catalogue, which is still available to order (you can view it here). I love the little monsters and the sayings that go with them. In order to fit the sayings on the circles, I curved the stamps around the monsters while on the block and then inked and stamped them. I used kraft paper as accent cardstock for the circles and pennants to tie in the kraft bows.
