I am starting to look forward to my Scrapbook Sunday. I like to scrapbook, but I am a slow stamper and an even slower scrapbooker. So if I didn’t have this dedicated scrapbooking day on Sundays, I don’t think I would ever do it.

Okay, you have to bear with me. I am trying to fill Rick’s Day’s to Remember calendar. Today and the next 9 Sundays, I will just post 6″x6″ pages.

I like using the sketch challenge layout for the scrapbook page. It gives me a head start. So here is my page with this weekend’s sketch challenge.


The scrapbook page is a 6″ square of textured Bayou Blue cardstock.

I cut wallet size pictures down to 2″ squares and layered them on 2 1/4″ sponged River rock squares.

Next I taped them down to sponged 4 7/8″ piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock.

I took another 2 1/4″ sponged River Rock square and paper pierced around the edges. I cut a 1 7/8″ square of Very Vanilla cardstock and stamped amazing from Amazing to Zany on the top right. Underneath I stamped Kids with the Simple Serif Alphabet.

On the bottom left of that square I stamped wonderful from Amazing to Zany and Life with the Simple Serif Alpha.

I stamped the 3 from Big Deal Numbers in Blue Bayou and the 1 from the same set in Chocolate Chip on Very Vanilla cardstock and cut them out.

I layered a sponged and paper pierced 1 1/4″ Soft Sky Circle first on a 1 3/8″ Chocolate Chip circle and then on a sponged Blue Bayou scalloped circle. I adhered the 3 with dimensionals in the center of that circle.

I took another 1 1/4″ Soft Sky circle and again layered it on a 1 3/8″ Chocolate Chip circle. I taped it partially on the bottom left of the Very Vanilla square and cut off the overhanging part. then I paper pierced around the leftover circle and added the 1 with dimensionals.

I adhered this last River Rock square with dimensionals to the Chocolate chip layer, clipped on of the small Library clips from the Holiday Mini catalog on the right hand side and tied May Arts ribbon on it.

For the Horizontal layer I cut a 1 3/4″ x 2 3/4″ piece of Holiday Harmony Designer paper and taped it in the middle of the left hand side of the page. I paper pierced three rows and added Pewter brads in every third hole in the middle row.
