Smile it’s the February Scrapbook Class

This month we did a generic layout that can be used for most anything.  Since I love photography it’s no wonder I fell in love with the MFT camera dies and stamps.  There are a lot of MFT products used that will be listed at the end of this post.  Click on the pics to see up-close details.

1 - Scrapbook 12x12 layouts

A double page layout using the mirror effect

1 - Scrapbook left page

The outside borders are MFT’s Mini Film Strip

1 - Scrapbook left page close up

I think I’m showing my age, but how many of you remember these polaroid cameras? I love the pic coming out of the camera and the sweet little heart on the lens cap.  Vellum paper was used for the ring around the heart.

1 - Scrapbook center spine

I used MFT’s Striped Background stamp to keep the two pages cohesive. The background stamp is SU Sanded Background stamp (retired).  “Say What” is MFT’s Chat Bubbles and Say What Die and Say What Sentiments stamp set.  To get the stripes to line up perfectly, I measured 2-1/2″ down and 2-1/2″ across from the corner.

1 - Scrapbook right page

On the bottom film strip, I wrote the names at an angle.  It left a good spot for some journaling.  However, I didn’t want to include it in the pic. (smile)

Love this large MFT Behind the Camera die.  A 1″ circle punch was used for the pic in the center of the lens.

A Valentine Kiss

Who would have ever thought you love stamping so much that you would “KISS” your stamp.  For Valentine’s Day I’m bringing back an old technique presented by Stampin’ Up’s Emily Montoya.

I hope everyone gets to enjoy this sweet day with that special someone in your life.  If not, chocolate is a great substitute.  Happy Valentine’s!
