Artisan pages

Hello everyone!
Is it just as rainy and icky in your corner of the world as it is here? It seems like we haven’t had very many nice sunny spring days. The kids are hoping to get a day to go swimming soon, but each day is cloudy, rainy, and cold!
Since we haven’t been able to go out much we have been spending more time just hanging out indoors. This morning the kids were happy to play computer games and make creative messes on their table next to mine in our scrapbooking/stamping area of the basement. They were pretty content and got along pretty well with each other this morning which is more than I can say for any other day this week!

Today I thought I’d share with you the scrapbook pages I made for this year’s Artisan Award contest. I love the pages I made and believe they are some of my best work using Stampin’ Up! only products. The contest required three pages in either 12×12, 8.5×11 or 8×8. I usually work with 12×12 so all mine were that size.


This page uses Doodle This and Pick a Petal stamp sets; Chocolate Chip, Green Galore, Tempting Turquoise, Taken With Teal and Real Red card stock; Pink Flamingo and Rainbow Sherbet Designer Series paper; On Board Lots of Letters; white paint, Stazon black ink.


This next one is my favorite of all. I am in love with that chandelier stamp!

This page uses Grand Soiree, Friends 24-7, Enjoy Every Moment and Contempo Alphabet stamp sets; Kiwi Kiss, Basic Black and versamark ink; Kraft, Pixie Pink, Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red and Whisper White, card stock; Pink Flamingo Designer series paper; Button Latte buttons, linen thread, circle ice rhinestones, staples, sewing machine and thread.


And last but not least…


This one uses Jumbo Outline Alphabet and Baroque Motifs stamp sets; So Saffron, Baja Breeze and riding hood Red ink; Sweet Slumber designer series paper; linen thread, gel pen


There ya have ’em! It was fun to make them even if they weren’t good enough to win this year.

Wanna check out a fun website? It’s called Colors on the Web. You can spin the color wheel and it comes up with a new color scheme every time. Be careful. It’s addicting!!!

Have a good one!

    I am totally “WOW’d”!! My favorite page has to be the Sweet Dreams one. I think it’s knowing how peaceful and sweet the kids look when they are sleeping – but during the day is a different story!! LOL! Fantastic Work!!!
