Down The Rabbit Hole

I haven’t shared much scrapbooking lately, though that’s what I’ve been spending most of my craft time on. I am pleased with how this page turned out today. It’s a layout I started years ago at a Cosmo Cricket workshop. Today, I finally added photos! I’m glad I waited too, because the chipboard stickers were perfect for my daughter’s role as a flower girl in “Down the Rabbit Hole.”

Also, I was inspired to use the rabbit in the title after watching lesson 3 in May Flaum’s “Stamping For Scrapbookers” online class. I’ve been enjoying her video lessons this week.

A Scrapfest Sampling

Scrapfest was this past weekend at Mall of America. It’s an event I look forward to each year. Three days of workshops, make and takes, and new products. I’ve started adding an extra day at the end so that I can have some time in my craft room to try out the new techniques I’ve learned and play with the new stuff I’ve collected. It’s a fun and refreshing weekend.

So, I have a few things to share. One of my favorite card workshops was ‘Groovy Mini Cards’ by Archiver’s. We used cling stamps by Unity to make these cards. I love those sticklers on the paint can.


Then, at home, I spent a little more time playing with the stamps and came up with this.


The design and colors were inspired by the Case Study Challenge #158. I’m going to submit it there later tonight.

I also enjoyed the “Lovin’ Life” pages workshop by Bella Blvd. We made two really cute, not wedding-related pages and a card using their Love and Marriage line. I had to make some modifications to the design though because I do not like feathers. I know they’re trendy right now, but they just don’t do it for me. It’s something about the way they feel. And, that they’re from birds.

For the pages, I just left them off. I may add another embellishment in that spot after I add photos to the pages, or I may not. The feather was a really prominent part of the card, though I had to give some thought to what to replace it with. I finally settled on a cluster of embellishments, including a sentiment from the groovy Unity stamps. It’s hard to read in the photo, but it says “you color my world. ”
