2015 A Year In Review, Scrapbook Layout 12 x 12, all Stampin’ Up!

2015_a_year_in_review-1

We made this 12 x 12 layout in my January scrapbook classes, “2015, A Year in Review”. Everything is from Stampin’ Up!, however, some of the products are now retired.
Expressive Flexible Phrases is an old set from 2006 which has lots of individual words that can be used together to create phrases.  I used them on this layout to say “cherish the memories” and “remember the laughter”.

The background paper is a retired color “Not Quite Navy” which has always been one of my favorites and I had plenty of it so I decided to quit hoarding it!  (Please tell me I’m not the only paper hoarder…?!?)

A close-up of the title…the little words are from a retired set called “Expressive Flexible Phrases”and  the numbers are from the new Number of Years bundle.  Some of the class attendees were frustrated because they couldn’t get a clean image from the stamps, but they are suppose to be that way.  If you look at the catalog picture, that’s just how they’re suppose to look.  Once I explained that, they were okay with it 🙂

We used the Sunburst Thinlit and a circle framelit to create a back drop for “YEAR”.

I love to add little pops of color here and there on my layouts, so we added  some with this little accent.  We used half of a silver doily, some Cherry On Top washi tape and a couple of punches.

Hello Fall Scrapbook Layout 12 x 12

Hello_fall_layout

I just love the color of Fall, don’t you? With Stampin’ Up!’s Vintage Leaves stamp set, recreating that look is easy. I sponged up a Very Vanilla piece of cardstock with Hello Honey, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry & Soft Suede and then stamped a variety of leaves on it using Early Espresso. I cut out the leaves with the coordinating Leaflet Framelits and presto, instant beauty!
The title “Hello Fall” was done with the Greetings Thinlits and a retired alphabet stamp set called Letter It.

I tore the Cajun Craze 12 x 12 cardstock diagonally with a retired Stampin’ Up! tool, The Cutting Edge and then “painted” the torn edge with a gold leafing pen.

Gold thread was used as an accent behind some of the leaf groupings and then some scattered gold sequins finished off the layout.

“You had me at Woof” Dog Scrapbook Layout 12 x 12

Part of the Family, Dog Scrapbook Layout 12 x 12

This is the dog layout that some of my class attendees will be doing next week.  I gave everyone a choice between a dog or a cat layout and some just couldn’t decide, so they ordered both!  I guess that means they’ve got love coming from both species Smile, lucky them!!

I decided it was time to use up some of my old DSP (Designer Series Paper) or stop buying more because I’m running out of storage space.  I’m sure none of you can relate….just kidding, ‘cause I know you can!  I also know that we’re all suckers for more pretty paper and Stampin’ Up! knows it too!

Here are a couple more pictures to show some details.

Part of the Family / Cat Scrapbook Layout

 

Part of the Family, cat scrapbook layout

For my scrapbooking class this month we will be doing a layout titled “Part of the Family” and each participant selected their choice of a dog or a cat layout.  Some have chosen to do both.  Our pets sure do steal our hearts and become just like one of the family, don’t they?

Tomorrow I’ll share the dog layout, but until then, here are some detailed pictures of the cat pages.
