This is a progressive scrapbook page. What does that mean? You start out with a 6x6 page go to a 8 1/2 x 11 page and then to a 12 x 12 page. So I'll start out with the
6x6 page first.
6x6 Page~ The base is Sahara Sand. I sponged the edges with Chocolate Chip ink. In the corners on the bottom I took the paw stamp from C Is For Cat; stamped in Sahara Sand and then rolled the edges in Chocolate Chip ink and stamped in the two bottom corners. I took the saying inked it in Basic Black and stamped in the center. Next I mounted the photo on Chocolate Chip card stock. I then wrapped Natural Hemp around the bottom and added a Kraft Corduroy Button to the center; tying the hemp through it. To finish it off I took the Photo Corners Punch, punched out a piece in Basic Black and then added a 5/16th Jumbo Brad to the center.
8 1/2 x 11 Page~ The base is Chocolate Chip. I took the fish stamp; inked it in Chocolate Chip and stamped in the upper right hand side three times. I added a piece of Basic Black Card stock to the center. At the top I used some of our On Board Timeless Type Chipboard to spell out my cat's name. Using the Chocolate Chip Craft pad I stamped the paw all over the letters. After it dried I took a Sponge Dauber and inked it with Sahara Sand ink. On the left hand bottom I added 3 Vintage Brads using the Mat Pack and Paper Piercing-Tool. On the right side I punched out another photo corner using the Photo Corners Punch in Basic Black. I set a 5/16 Jumbo Brad in the center. This completes the 8 1/2 x 11 Page.
12 x 12 Page~ The base is Basic Black, I cut a piece of Sahara Sand down to 11 1/2 x 11 1/2 to break up the black. Along the edges I stamped the little paw in Sahara Sand ink. I sponged the edges with Chocolate Chip ink, I kept the 12 x 12 Page very simple.
Once I put it together I added my extra embellishments to balance out the page. In the upper right hand corner, I stamped the cat in Chocolate Chip ink and stamped it onto a piece of Sahara Sand card stock. I placed a piece of Basic Black card stock behind it. To the side of the 6 x 6 layout I added a little tab. To create this tab I took the sympathy saying and using the Basic Black Marker I high lighted the part that said Little Friend. I then stamped onto a piece of Sahara Sand card stock. I punched it out using the Curly Label Punch. I sponged the edges with Chocolate Chip ink and tucked it under the 6 x 6 layout. This completed my page!
