A Look Inside the Book

Do you ever feel like you're just running late? Right now I feel like everything I either want or need to get done is behind... Today I want to play some catch up with myself (you know it's the last day of March and where are my March Christmas cards???)!

I wanted to share some of the inside pages of the book cover I shared here. I'm not much of a scrapper and if I do scrap anything it's always a smaller album - never a 12x12. What I wanted to share with you today is the pages in your scrap books can be a simple or as complex as you'd like to make them.

Here is a simple page:

A little pattern paper, butterfly stamp and flourish mask.

Then you can get creative with supplies you have easily on-hand:

This is an envelope from my stash, pattern paper and definition background stamp.

Here is the back side of the envelope:

Just some scraps of pattern paper and the flower stamp on more scraps.

Here is the pull out page:

Picture on beautiful Theresa Collins transparency.

Then you can get complicated and creative - dig through all the awesome metal stuff you have and:

You can get something like this. All of the squares with the metal embellishments are white card stock that was stamped and blended with flourish mask. The background pattern paper was black and white that I blended the blue on to pull the color through the page.

Here are some close ups:

Oh - I wanted to share again that a lot (hmmm I think most) of the supplies for this album are from the Bracket Kit from Innovative Stamp Creations (it's a steal of a deal - go check it out!).

Okay - I'm off and running to work on my "list"! Have a great day!
