Loads of inspiration!

Over the next few weeks you are going to see a ton of great projects created by the Hampton Art design team, for you! Don't miss out! - kimber

It is Gloria with you again today. Don't faint...but I did a scrapbook page! This photo was taken at my family home in central Pennsylvania. The last time we visited my childhood home was 2009. The property has since been sold, which makes me so happy my husband took some amazing photos for me when we were there! 

1.  Using various inks and stamps, create a collage background on kraft cardstock. Allow to dry.
2. Spray kraft cardstock with various spray mists. Allow to dry.
3. Trim kraft cardstock to 11 7/8 x 11 7/8 inches and attach to 12 x 12 inch black cardstock with strong adhesive.
4. Spray white paper doily with kiwi spray mist. Allow to dry and attach to the upper center of the kraft cardstock.
5. Trim photo to 8 x 5 1/2 inches and mat with black cardstock. Attach to kraft cardstock approximately 2 1/2 inches from the top and 2 inches from the left edge.
6. Cut flourish from green cardstock. Attach flourishes and paper flowers to the top right edge of the photo as shown.

7. Stamp the A Good Thing sentiment onto white cardstock with black ink. Smudge the cardstock with several shades of brown chalk ink. Trim to approximately 3 3/8 x 3 3/8 inches.
8. Trim black cardstock into a tag shape, approximately 4 1/4 x 3 1/2 inches. Attach the sentiment to the cardstock tag and attach to the right edge of the page layout with foam tape.
9. Glue a clip to the top of the tag. 

10. Tie green satin ribbon into a bow and glue to the clip. Attach a small flower to the center of the bow.
11. Cut another flourish from green cardstock. Attach flourish and paper flowers to the lower left edge of the sentiment as shown.

12x12 Layout - Chalkboard Technique Pocket Page

By Gloria Stengel

To create this layout I used a chalkboard technique. I stamped the month images onto black cardstock with Watermark ink. I then embossed with white embossing powder. I rubbed white ink over the paper to add a  "dirty chalkboard" look. 

I stamped some images with white pigment ink, including over-stamping some of the months to create a shadow. I used a white pencil to add some smudges and detail to the page.

I trimmed the paper in half and created a pocket to hold photos.

I added a punched border to the top of the pocket to mimic dripping paint. 

I mounted each photo onto cardstock, and then placed a tab with the month stamped onto it at the top of the photos. Each month of the year, you can add your favorite photo to the pocket. The pocket page is mounted to white cardstock and chipboard for sturdiness. This is a project that I would place into a holder and sit on a desk or table rather than place into a scrapbook.

  1. Great job on these pages, Ladies. I especially like the first page. The green against the kraft background looks great!
