Footloose Club

No, I'm not starting a Footloose club, but rather for scrapbook club I'm showing you the new Footloose paper pack.   Another winner of a paper pack!    This paperpack screams summer.   Don't we wish we had summer right now.    Well, since I have about 8 summers to scrapbook I can live in the memories of summer by using the Footloose paper pack.    For club, I will be demonstrating our new Baker's Twine which can be used for so many things.   I used them to embellish buttons as you will see further down.  

For club we will be using:
3 - 4 x 4 pictures
1 - 4 x 6 vertical
2 - 4 x 6 horizontal

A close up of the left side page.  You will notice that I have a 1/2" border by my vertical picture.   That comes in the paper pack right on your 12 x 12 paper.  You just trim it off and use it however you'd like.    Three different styles per paper pack.  Love it!

A close up of the left side.  Again I am using the 1/2" border.

Lastly, a close up of the baker's twine that I used to embellish my buttons.    In addition, I used the Decor Journaling Spots.   If you know me well, I emphasize the importance of journaling your events.

Stella New Paper Pack

As soon as I saw this new paper pack I new I wanted to scrapbook our Vacation Bible School pictures which focused on the "jungle."     Below is a picture of the two-paged layout.   As always, I had lots of pictures that I wanted to include on one layout.

 On the right side of the layout I added a hidden journaling tag by the giraffe.  I glued all three sides except the top in which I could insert my tag.    This then left more space for my pictures.
 You will see that I used our color-ready chipboard letters.  I love these because I can color them to match my layout just by using a sponge our our inks.   Then, I wrapped our letters with our baker's twine which I absolutely LOVE!
