We be scrappin', we be scrappin'.....

Well, for our last stamp club class I've decided to jump in boots and all and have an all-nighter scrappin' class. Actually, I hope it doesn't take all night, hopefully only 3 hours. Tomorrow will tell..... I wanted to demonstrate different purposes for each 2 page layout i.e. summer fun, garden outdoors, elegant and finally uptown foxy. I also wanted to use a variety of colours and stamp sets and wanted to use as many punches as possible to ease embellishments. I think most of these pages can be adapted to suit any need by changing colours, stamps and positioning but at least this is a start. And if someone wants to complete an entire scrapbook using only one colour theme, then that is an easy transition too.
Supplies used are as follows:
(BTW this scrapbook is an 8X8)

I challenge each and everyone to sit down and start scrapbooking. If you start out small, it's not so frightening. And for all you seasoned scrapbookers, I know you're probably laughing hysterically. Don't forget you were once there too. Enjoy the rest of the day and happy stamping, oops I mean happy scrappin'.
