How to make a GIGANTIC SCRAPBOOK PAGE, sort of!!

24 Jan

Ok, so this is not really a scrapbook page.  I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and I had been asked to do the bulletin board in the hall for the women’s group for our church which is called the Relief Society.  Now, the Bulletin Board is quite large and this could be quite a task for some people.  But you know what?  I look at walls and things like bulletin boards like large cards or scrapbook pages and just scale my designs on a somewhat GINORMOUS scale.  So, for this post I thought I’d show you what I did for this particular Bulletin Board, because I tend to get nice comments on them from time to time.

First and foremost I have to give a tremendous shout out to my fabulous friend Therese Travis who is the Artist for all the dolls I have used on this project.  She happens to also be an author of some really fabulous books and you can find her books on Amazon here: THERESE TRAVIS AMAZON PAGE

Her books are very sweet with nothing offensive in them and I have enjoyed getting to read her literary works as well as working with her art.

Without further ado, here is what I have created:

I started out covering the board with craft paper and edged the entire board with large doilies.

Next came the headings.

2014-01-24 11.13.25 (1)

Then I added a banner or sorts.

Here is a close up of the Banner..

Close up of the dolls together.  The scripture they represent is:

And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.  (1 Corinthians 13:13)

Here is the doll for the Faith portion of the scripture.

One last look at the Board.

What do you think?  I love the way it turned out…it will of course have flyers and other stuff added later..this is just the basics..but you get the idea.

Anyhow, this is what I did today!  I just thought I’d share it with you.

A new class coming up for me…..

14 May

I have another class coming up at Ben Franklin.

This one is coming up quick.

The date is Tuesday May 28th, 2013.  The time is from 10:00am to 12:00 noon.

The cost will be $22.00 for 4 12 x 12 pages. (That translates to 2 complete 2 page layouts, all paper supplies included)

Not included are the following.

SCISSORS, ADHESIVES, FOAM DOTS, DIMENSIONAL FOAM, GLUE DOTS, DISTRESSING INKS AND SPONGES ACRYLIC PAINT FOR DOTS.

Because of time constraints, it is best to do distressing and paint dots at your leisure, at a later time, namely at home.

Without further ado, here are the pages we will be doing.

So, what do you think?  Are you interested in coming?  What about a Kit?

You can order a Kit for $20.00.  If you don’t live by me you just pay for the kit plus shipping, it’s that easy!!

I have based the layouts of course on the lovely Mary Engelbreit.  But I also love the art of  Lauren Child.  I love how she mixes pictures of  real objects with her drawings and art.

That’s what I have done with these layouts.  Some of the items are actual pictures mixed with die cuts and other things.  I just love how everything turned out and I hope you like these layouts too.

If you want to sign up for the class to take from me at Ben Franklin,

Call: (530) 273-1348.

Let them know you want to sign up for a class and they will direct you to the right department.

If you want to order a kit, send me a message at:

jmdegruc@yahoo.com.

I will need a mailing address to quote your shipping.

That’s it for today!

Thanks for stopping by.

Here is my layout:

A close up of my paper rolled “candles.”

The fun thing about this card is that it is only 3″ x 3″.

I made a matching envelope to go along with it.

I just love the combo of red and blue together!

When you first take a look at this, it might seem like a strange title.
Let me explain.  I made this for a challenge that challenged us to use a title of a paper line and we had to use the paper line name as our TITLE.
This is for the Survivor Challenge going on at Tally Scrapper.com.
We are in week 2.  So much fun….
A couple of weeks ago, we rescued this kitty from a storm drain under the street about 2 hours from where we lived.
 I have fallen in love with her, and named her Luna, sadly, we can’t keep her.
Thanks to allergies the hubby has:(
What do you think of my fat black cat?  She is made entirely from Scalloped Circles and some smaller circle punches.
Another part of the challenge for this page was that I needed to use at least 3 colors from the paper line who’d title I am using.  Here is the palette I was working with.
The other dies I used on this layout were:

Thank you also Canvas Corp for the wonderful Red Jute, the perfect finishing touch for this page.

Printed Papers and Letters:

Authentique Paper

I hope you like what I have made today.

Thanks for stopping by.
