Michelle's Scrapbook Layout of the Month.......July
Here is the scrapbook layout of the month for July. This is the page I did for my daughter and also the page I demonstrated at my July Stampin' Technique and Scrapbook Club. The version I did for my son has already been posted. You should check out how different these two layouts look by having 2 different color schemes. The Certainly Celery card stock has dry embossed circles around it. To do that technique all you need is a template with circles on it and a stylus. I made my template by using the Big Shot Die-Cut machine and the Circles #2 Bigz Die. I cut out the whole Circles #2 Bigz Die in thick window sheets (Stampin' Up! brand) tossed away the circles and kept the negative as my template. I then put the template on my table, put the certainly Celery Card stock on top and used my finger to find a circle and then used my stylus to dry emboss that circle. I then repositioned my template to do another dry emboss circle and so on.
Another technique I demonstrated on this scrapbook page was the use of Stampin' Up!'s new builder wheels. It is so easy to use 3 builder wheels at a time and to get each one of have a different color by using a triple cell cartridge. Before I used to use my Standard and Jumbo wheels on a Classic or Craft Ink Pad to get ink on them but when you are using more than one builder wheel it is kind of hard to do that. I bought an un-inked triple cell cartridge, added Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip and Rich Razzleberry Classic Re-Inkers and voila easy peasy.
Here is a close up of the Certainly Celery dry embossed circles.....
The possiblities for this technique are endless with the Big Shot Die-Cut Machine and all of the Big Shot Dies available. A winter scrapbook page with dry embossed snowflakes would look good.
