It's Scrapbook Page Day at Soft Pencil Designs!

Oh my goodness, this is the first time since I have been on the Soft Pencil Design team that we have been asked to create a scrapbook page with our weekly image! I got so excited, I have been making notes on what I wanted to do for two weeks or longer. I got started in paper crafting as a scrapbooker, then a year or so after that I got invited to a Stampin Up workshop to make some cards, and I was hooked on that too. Now, if I can find a way to do it, I will add pretty paper, stamps, digi images, embellishments, etc to just about anything. Sometimes I am amazed at what some of the talented blogging ladies out there will alter with their paper crafting supplies. I know, Blah, blah, blah....... get on with the project. This first image is a snippet with the image called "Molly is giving you a flower". I colored her with a combination of Stampin Up markers, Ink refills, and blender pens. Then, I cut her out with a Spellbinder's Nestibility Circle.

Is Molly cute, or what? I love her and all of her cuteness. I added the sun that comes with a couple of other Soft Pencil Images. To create the background behind Molly, I printed her out a second time onto plain copy paper, cut her out, adhered her on top of the colored image with repositionable adhesive, left her in the Circle Nestibility, and sponged some ink around her. I love doing that! Fun, fun!

This next photo is also a snippet to show you a close-up of another Soft Pencil Digi that I added to the page, actually a handful of times. I simply enlarged the flower on Microsoft Word software, and copied it a bunch of times, and punched them all out with circle punches after coloring them. The bling in the center is supposed to be a bright yellow color, but I had trouble capturing that with my camera. Take my word for it, it is pretty bling!

Ok, now here is the final and complete scrapbook page!

I am a clean and simple scrapbooker, just like my card making style. I just can't help it, I don't like clutter. As you can see there is plenty of room from top to bottom for photos! The white flower border on the left side of the page is from Doodlebug Design, as are the yellow sticky gems on the flowers. The cute little butterfly brads are from Making Memories, all circle punches are from Stampin Up, and so is all of the card stock and designer paper. I used Pretty in Pink , Certainly Celery, Melon Mambo, and of course some watercolor paper. As always, if you have any questions please leave me a comment, or see my email link on the blog sidebar!

Until Next Time............ Blessings, Lisa
