Scrapbook Saddle Up Friday; 6 x 6 Love Page
I don't know about you all but I am sure glad Friday is here!!! The best part it's a 3 day weekend for me!! Wooo Hooo!!!
Every Friday I will be hosting the Scrapbook Saddle Up with y'all!! It will feature a scrapbook layout to a scrapbooking album ideas along with tips, techniques and etc!! Today I am sharing a 6 x 6 page I created to play along with a color challenge for my Frosty Kisses Class. I also am using it for Stampin' Addicts Scrapbook Challenge this week as well. This weeks challenge is to use the Scallop Square Die on your layout some how. This page uses two items from the Occasions Mini Catalog; these items are available until April 30th so be sure to place your order soon!

My base is a piece of 6 x 6 Whisper White card stock. I cut a piece of Poppy Parade card stock. I used the Mat Pack and Paper-Piercing Tool to pierce holes around the edges of the Poppy Parade card stock. I cut a piece of Blushing Bride card stock to cover across the width of the page. I used the Mat Pack and Paper-Piercing Tool to pierce a row of holes across the bottom of the Blushing Bride card stock.
Tip~ Use two colors of card stock and make one color a smaller square and place it towards the top. This will help balance out the page with the colors.
I wrapped a piece of 1/4 Whisper White Grosgrain Ribbon around the Blushing Bride card stock. I wrapped a piece of Early Espresso/White Bakers Twine around the Whisper White grosgrain. Using the Big Shot and the Scallop Square Die; I die cut out a piece of Early Espresso card stock. I cut a piece of Whisper White card stock and glued it to the scallop square. I used the Mat Pack and Paper-Piercing Tool to pierce holes in each scallop.
Tip~ You will notice to tie in the paper-piercing I incorporated it into the Scallop Square, by doing this it balanced out the paper-piercing on the page.
I placed Stampin' Dimensionals onto the back of the Scallop Square and attached to the center of the page. The Scallop Square Die makes great photo mats!! I punched out a piece of Poppy Parade card stock using the Full Heart Punch. I took the stamp from Grateful Greetings Stamp Set; inked in Early Espresso and stamped it onto a piece of Whisper White card stock. I glued the saying to the Poppy Parade heart. I then added a Twitter Patted Designer Button. I attached it with a Stampin' Dimensional over the corner of the scallop square. I then added a bow made from the Early Espresso/White Bakers Twine.
Tip~ Red colors are very vibrant colors; when working with red colors you want to balance them out so it doesn't take the focus away from the picture. I made the Blushing Bride card stock larger and then placed the scallop square in the center of the layout to tone it down. Then to tie the red back into the page I added just a little on the bottom by punching the heart out.
