Grinch Scapbook Layout

Hello Friends!  Marilyn, here.  The stomach bug "Grinch" tried to steal our Christmas this year.  We had to celebrate a week late while it made it's way around some the members of our family.

“Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before! 
 What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store.
What if Christmas...perhaps...means a little bit more!”
Dr. Seuss, How the Grinch Stole Christmas! 

I found these cute Grinch cuts from Scrappy Dew and decided to incorporate them into a scrapbook layout.  Here is my tip:  When doing a two page scrapbook layout, tie your pages together by splitting the header or stringing something across both pages.

  • Images:  ScrappyDew "Grinch 2013"
  • Designer Paper:  K&Company "Ancestry" 12"x12" pack
  • Other:  Baker's Twine, Stickles, Liquid Pearls

Layout Recipe:
  • Ornaments:  I enlarged the ornament that Cindy Lou is holding to about 6".  A couple of the ornaments are flipped.  Tops are accented with silver Stickles.   These will be my photo mats. 
  • Baker's Twine:  I glued a string of Baker's Twine along both pages giving some movement for the eye to follow.  Bows were made from Baker's Twine and glued on as well.

  • Header:  "Where are you Christmas" came with the ScrappyDew set.  Letters are accented with Stickles.  Sized at 1" in height.

  • Grinch:  Instead of using all the different cuts that come with this set, I opted to use their example image and created a cut and print image.  Stickles has been added to fur and belt buckle.  Image mounted on foam tape.  Sized at 5" in height.

  • Max Dog = Example image was traced and made into a cut and print.  Antlers have Liquid Pearls added.  Image mounted with foam tape and is 3" in height.

  • Cindy Lou = Example image was traced and made into a cut and print.  Stickles added to hair bow, ornament top and bottom of Cindy's outfit.  Image mounted with form tape and is 3.5" in height.
  • Christmas Tree = Example image was traced and made into a cut and print.  Stickles added to star, ornaments, packages and Grinch's fur.  Image mounted with foam tape and is 6.5" in height.
  • Border on bottom = cut at 2" from scrap paper.  Brown trim cut at 1/4" and is also scrap paper.

I hope you had a wonderful and blessed Christmas!   I appreciate you stopping by and hope you will join our blog.  You can also catch Scrapbook Blessings on Facebook where we have all kinds of fun!  Come and join us!

Building Block Graduation Card

Hello, everyone! Melissa here on to share a "building block" style card with you. I made this one graduation themed, since there are a ton of graduations going on right now. Hope you enjoy this card, and are inspired to try it out yourself. Here is the tutorial I followed from Split Coast Stampers. To make it easier, I will give you all the measurements, here. It looks harder than it is, I promise. Start with a piece of cardstock in your desired color that is 5.5 x 10.5. Put the 10.5 inch side along the top of your score board or paper trimmer, and score at 3.5 inches and 7 inches. Fold the first score line in a mountain fold, and the second in a valley fold. You should end up with a "z" fold card. The next part can get a bit tricky, so make sure you watch the video to fully understand what I am about to explain. On the back side of the "valley" fold, take a ruler and pencil and mark these measurements: 3/8 1 3/8 1 5/8 2 5/8 2 7/8 3 7/8
