I learned some neat things at convention and one of them will really help me in demonstrating scrapbooking how tos at my workshops. I’ve always hesitated a bit with scrapbooking because I knew that some of the people at my workshops were there for the cards . . . but then there are always a few who want to walk down the scrapbooking path. Well, now I know!! At convention, I learned that you can do both and use pretty much the same supplies for each. The 6×6 page above uses the same colors and pretty much the same basic design as the 6×3 card below. So, the people that want to make the page . . . can! But, the people who want to focus just on cards . . . can! I love it. I cut all the same supplies . . . provide the same colors and inks for both and the customer chooses!!
Here is the coordinating card that uses the same supplies at the 6×6 scrapbook page. Isn’t it lovely? All it needs is a long envelope and it’s ready to be sent out. But, today is my wedding anniversary so I am going to give this one to my dear, sweet hubby.

Supplies used on the 6×6 scrapbook page and the coordinating card:

Stamps: Always
Paper: Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, Basic Gray, Naturals White
Ink: Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, Basic Black
Accessories: Kraft Taffeta, Dimensionals, 1/2″ Circle Punch, Scallop Punch

The next thing I learned at convention was how to take that very same 6×6″ layout and turn it into an 8.5 x 11″ scrapbook page just by adding another photo and maybe a journaling box. So, that is what I did here. The only alphabet set that I own that is current is the defining alphabet so it was just a bit tedious to tape off the smaller letter everytime I inked up, but I like the end result. The supplies I added to create this page: Defining Alphabet, Designer Button
Then, (oh the thrill!), I took the 8.5×11″ page and now I can show how it can be turned into a 12×12″ page!! Super fun!! And, I feel like I got something accomplished today!!Thanks for stopping by my blog!! Have a great day!
