Stampbook Saturday - One Scoop at a Time

Hi everyone! It's my turn for a Stampbook Saturday post over at the TSG blog so I will apologize now ;) I have not ever once claimed to be a scapbooker and I think that this layout is the 4th one that I've made in my life. With having kids you would think that I would have started out as a scrapbooker first but I'm pretty terrible because I don't even print my photos *hangs head in shame*

I did however have this sweet picture of my daughter on hand from my son's 8th birthday party so I decided to combine her with the Enjoy Life set as well as the coordinating ice cream dies. I die cut the scoops of ice cream on various different pastel card stocks and then sponged some coordinating inks on them. I then added a rather large stack of them to my cork cut cone. You can sign me up for one of these ice cream cones any day! Yum!

Now because I'm not a scrapbooker, it didn't even occur to me until just now that I should have added some journaling to make it authentic! LOL! Some scrapbooker I am!!! I have to say though, that I do love how this turned out and so does Ashlynn and that's what counts in the end right? :D

This is adorable. I think you did a wonderful job. Love the way you did the ice cream scoops.

Way cute! I also so love the way you did the ice cream scoops - where do you get the dies? When I click on the link I get an error?

As usual, totally enjoy your talent and creativity - always look forward to seeing what you come up with!

Debbie, the dies are from There She Goes but I believe that their website is down at the moment due to having some work done on it :)

Okay my jaw just hit the floor here Missy! Lol. Wow your page is amazing and your just starting to scrapbook. I say that you have mastered the hobby by all means. Take a bow because your super star number one in this area. I so love how you sew on your cards and now on your layouts. It gives everything such a Kim Teasdale feel. Your work is amazing. Sorry to sound like a blubbering fool, but my jaw hits the floor every time. Kim I was wondering if you were ever gonna share a tutorial on how to make a cloudy sky without using copic sprayer? ...I think that is what it is called. Also I saw in one of your tutorials that you used a very small brush to blend your inks. Could you tell me what this product is and where I can purchase one just like it. Thanks so much for being here in the paper crafting world. Hugs.
