Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Today I’m going to to take you into how I started my amazing journey with Stampin’ Up! … SCRAPBOOKING!!
I’m going to share a Parade of Scrapbook layouts /pages that I created back when … the layouts are still relevant today with a change of designer papers, you can create a whole new look!! These layouts are GREAT for beginning scrapbookers.
Join me in a stroll down memory lane ….
One of the easiest pages to create, this is actually a 6 x 6 with 4″ squares of designer paper and coordinating cardstock created around 2004! The alphabet stamps with a circle punch and die cuts for the “Hoot” created my theme … and then the owl punch.
For my second layout ….
Super simple layout with a tropical flair … I stamped some flowers on the background just to create some dimension to the page, added a strip of designer paper to the bottom and coordinating cardstock for my photo mats. The coconut cocktail was created using a circle die / or punch … whichever you prefer and then I cut out part of the top and added my accessories! How cute, fun and easy was that!!
My third layout …
Oh my gosh … how easy is this layout! I used an actual road map … what a great way to highlight your road trip. Grab a map or two of the areas you visit and then used it to pin point where you have been. I found some cardstock that coordinated with the colors on the map (good thing Stampin’ Up! has so many amazing colors).
If you don’t have dies to cut out your headers / titles for your pages … Use your computer to print one out. Again, super simple and a great way for beginners to get started.
For my last layout, I’m sharing a page I created with scraps …
My Card Club was creating “window” cards so all the orange, lime green and black dots are left over from their cards, so I attached them to a piece of black 12 x 12 and created a really fun backdrop for my page. Here is a great example of using your printer to create your title. The cats were actually punched out of designer paper (I love that Stampin’ Up! coordinates dies & punches to the designer paper) … makes for an easy page. To finish it off … I just added my sweet little grandbaby in the center!
I thank you for walking down this path with me today, and I hope you are inspired to whip up a few easy scrapbook pages … you’ve got some layouts now.
Enjoy your Saturday!
I may just start adding scrapbooking back into my stamping … What do you think? Please comment below.

Linda!!! For as long as I’ve known you, I didn’t know that’s how you started!!!
Hi Nancy!! Yes, it all began with my quest to scrapbook my vacations! Went to a Stampin’ Up! party to see what they had, and the rest is history! Hope you are doing well. You my friend, have some beautiful “baby grands” to scrapbook. They steal our hearts!!
Thank you Peggy for responding … I actually miss scrapbooking, and think it’s time to get back to my roots! lol
