I will be really quiet all next week. I am working full time on something BIG for SCS that will start November 12th, plus I have to find the time and plan my next stamp camp on Saturday. I don’t know how much stamping I will get done during that time.

But I had to make another page for my Days to Remember calendar. Rick will be leaving right after Christmas, and this is only the 4th page for his calendar. I made this one to match the colors of another page for the calendar. That way they can be next to each other once they are torn out of the calendar and in an album.


My page base is a 6″ x 6″ piece of textured Groovy Guava cardstock.

As I for earlier Sunday pages, I used the layout for this weekend’s sketch challenge to create the page.

The black layer is a 5″ square, the following Purely Pomegranate paper from the Cutie Pie Designer Paper pack a 4 3/4″ square.

The two right side corners were punched with the ticket corner punch and the edges were stamped with my All in a Row Argyle stamp.

For the scalloped layer I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the biggest Square Nestabilities Die. I lined the cardstock up so one side would be straight.
I then layered a 3 1/4″ x 3 1/2″ piece of Darling Doodles Designer paper over that.

I cut my photo down to 3″ x 4 1/4″ and layered it first on a 1/4″ bigger Basic Black piece of cardstock, then on a 1/4″ bigger piece of Wild Wasabi.

I added a double photo corner to the top left hand side. The bigger piece is punched out of Basic Black cardstock, the smaller one out of Blue Bayou Prints Designer paper. Three Pewter brads finish the corner off.

Before taping all the layers and photo down to the page, I tied Blue Bayou Double Stitched Ribbon around the lower part of the layers. Then I taped everything down and added three Pewter Jumbo Eyelets on the left hand side. I fastened three Square Ice Rhinestone brads in the center of the eyelets. (I had seen that just this weekend on someone’s entry for this WSC and thought it looked awesome! Thanks for the inspiration!)

I stamped Spring 2007 on a Whisper White large oval punchout. I layered a black scallop circle with a Pomegranate Designer label punch, a 1 1/4″ Wild Wasabi Circle and topped it off with the stamped large oval. I added a Pewter brad on each tip of the oval and mounted the whole thing with dimensionals to the page.



Side note: 

I received several questions about Nestabilities. You can find great information here:

My personal opinion? I love them! I have a hard time not using them. I love scallops and these dies are a great way to make them, without having to store a mountain of punches. Just in case you are wondering which ones I bought, check here. It made a great early Christmas present to myself. Because doggone it….I am good enough, I am smart enough…and people like me (I LOVED that sketch on SNL).
