It has been a quite a while since I've scrapbooked and I've since developed a bit of a fear of making 12X12 scarpbooking pages...just seems SO big. Well, I decide to just get over the fear of the larger format and go for it! I had a little rummage around in my picture boxes and came across these Christmas pictures from 2004. It was so much fun to work with these pictures of the kids when they were so little and I am happy to have these memories preserved.
I'm actually quite happy with how this 2 page layout turned out and it was super easy using the NEW Liana Lamb Designs Journal it - Top 10 and Document it - December stamps with the NEW Insert it 3X4 Die-namics by Laina Lamb. I used some BoBunny 12X12 paper that I bought last year or maybe the year before...eeekk...with good intentions of using it and so I pulled them out and got to work.
For my first page, I matted with Jellybean Green and Nightshift Heavyweight cardstock. Here you can see how I used the NEW Insert it 3X4 Die-namics and NEW Journal it and Document It Stamps set. I cut the Insert It Die-namics from Whip Cream Heavyweight card stock and stamped the ledger paper stamp on it from the Journal It - Top 10 set. I also stamped the heading with stamps from the Document it - December stamp set. I added some hand written journaling on the Insert It 3X4 card that I cut and added the little check mark cut from Nightshift Heavyweight card stock from the Accent It Die-namics.
Have you notice that I LOVE the little circle charm/tag from the Howdy Die-namics? I stamped the "stars" or "snowflakes" from the Seasonal Sentiments set on the tags and tied them with hemp cord and placed them here and there on the page.
The little stars are from the NEW Seasonal Sentiments set as is the Title of the Page and stamped it on pattern paper cut with the Fishtail Flags Die-namics and the NEW Fishtail Flags Layers Die-namics. I cut the "WE" with the NEW Highrise alphabet Uppercase Die-namics and inked with white Mixed Media Inx.
I also used the NEW Howdy and NEW Accent it - Flags and Tags Die-namics and stamped sentiments from the NEW Document it - December and the NEW Seasonal Sentiments stamp set. I stamped "remember the moment" from the Behind the Camera Stamp set on Whip Cream Heavyweight card stock cut with the Fishtail Flags Layers STAX Die-namics.
Here is the second page...again I cut the title with the NEW Highrise Alphabet Die-namics Uppercase from corrugated cardstock and matted it on Fishtail Flags and Fishtail Layers STAX Die-namics and inked with White Mixed Media Inx. I also cut 4 Open Scallop Borders from Jellybean Green Heavyweight card stock and ran the across the pages and wrapped and tied them with a hemp cord and tied a bow.
I added a few more of the fabulous little Circle Charms from the NEW Howdy Die-namics and stamped the Peace and Joy sentiments from the NEW Seasonal Sentiments stamp set on Whip Cream heavyweight card stock cut with the Howdy Die-namics.
Well, thanks SO much for stopping by and having a look-see at the double 12x12 layout that I made with my the NEW Journal it -Top 10 and Document it - December stamps with the NEW Insert it 3X4 Die-namics by Laina Lamb!
