Scrapbook Sunday #26: Paisley Prints Maya

Happy Sunday! Hope you're having a great weekend!

I'm back with another scrapbook page, one from the SU Convention display samples. Again, it's my friend Asha's beautiful little girl. Maybe if I had kids this cute (or kids at all!), I'd be inspired to scrapbook more! In the meantime, I'll just keep borrowing!

I think the page is Sahara Sand. I was supposed to use the new Paisley Prints stamp and matching wheel (coming out in Holiday Mini available September 1), which I did, I just kept it very simple. The picture was so cute, every time I tried to add more, it took away from the picture. Plus, we didn't have many accessories to work with since the new catalog with new accessories wasn't out yet and they asked us not to use retired accessories. Good thing I like simple anyway!

I stamped the pumpkin and cut it out. Then I ran the wheel on the Melon Mambo cardstock and cut out the little "flags" and the little rectangles to stamp the words on. That new Fabulous Phrases set is a really good word set, lots of fun combinations you can make in a really pretty, fun script. Oh, to make the flags somewhat consistent, I used the 3/4" square punch to punch squares, then I cut the squares in half. I attached them with mini glue dots to give a little dimension.

Okay, back to projects! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

Hey, I'm your friend. You should do pages for me. That way I can get somewhat caught up :P Love this one. That girl is CUTE!! LOVE the colors on this. The page is so so so simple but goodness, you really made this pop! The banner's cute and love the pumpkin or the whole thing on the side. I can't believe how little you put on this page but it's stunning.

What a cutie! I love how your page highlights the photo and doesn't detract from it.
