August Scrap Bribing- Goodbye to Summer

>> Wednesday, August 20, 2008

If you're anything like me you've taken tons of photos this summer... Kids playing, fireworks, beach time, kicking back with a cold one...

So, as a "farewell" to summer I present scrap bribing for August:




First up is a 9x9 scrapbook with top loading pages. I love the linen scrapbooks because you can do so much to them- you can stamp them,paint them, wrap them in ribbon...



Of course you need to fill those pages so I have 12 sheets of 12x12 paper with a summer themes like water, fish, flowers, words and three solids: pale green, orange & yellow. Because the album is 9x9 you will have 3" on each side to create mats, frames and page accents. Mix & match!



To add even more accent I have a sheet of floral vellum and a great sheet of thick stickers- frames, spots for notes, ribbon sliders... With great summer sayings like "Fire up the grill" and "Hit the beach".





Do you ever use the plain white sheets you pull from album page protectors? With these stamps and great summer ink colors you'll want to use those pages in a variety of ways: Stamp the quote block and cut it out close for a great way to add journaling to a page. Or cut a mat out of the white and brush the ink along the edges to add color to a plain mat. Stamp the beach stamp and combine it with one of the previous stickers. Make an oversized mat for a photo, edge it in one color and add the journaling at the bottom. Just don't throw away those white sheets!




And finally a few fun page accents: sparkly stickers with a summer theme. The first two are actually two and three piece sets- break them up for maximum effect. A sparkly bumble bee and flower, bright twirly accents that work almost like decorative paper clips (they will wrap around photos or tags for added interest), clear green blossoms and dots (I love these with ribbons) and a blue tag for stamping or journaling.

Ready to play? Here's how:

1) Leave me a nice comment. That gets you entered once. (PS- If you don't leave me a way to contact you then you can't win. Make sure you leave an email or you are signed in with Google and I can reach your profile page.)

2) Write a nice little post on your blog. Link to this post. That gets you another entry. (Be sure to let me know or I might miss it!)

3) Make sure you tell everyone who visits from your blog to let me know you sent them. For every comment that mentions your name I will give you another entry.

So easy! And the more people you send me the better your chances to win. So give me some linky love and get your readers over here!
