This is another page I made for Maggie's retreat. This page illustrated how to take a page from a regular stamping magazine (in this instance, Creating Keepsakes) and drawing inspiration from it to make a page with your Stampin' Up! supplies.
The original page had elements hanging a little outside of the edges of the page, which I reproduced with my title block. I got the idea to use this banner because it was printed on one of the Designer papers. I thought it was beautiful and too bad not to use it, so I handcut it and added it to my 8½ x 11 page.
TIP: It goes without saying that this page will not fit in a regular 8½ x 11 protector because of the title banner, so I actually added it to one of my 12 x 12 albums and slipped a window sheet inside the protector to make the whole thing sturdier and not have the page move around in the protector.
At the bottom of the page, I used the Filmstrip stamp (such a fun addition to my stamp collection!) and added tickets from the There's the Ticket stamp set over it (another elements drawn from the original page). A couple of Designer buttons were scattered around.
Frames were handcut from one of the papers from the Etcetera Designer Series Papers (beautiful collection!) and added at the bottom of the ruler paper. A few circles punches out of matching papers were added. I added a piece of paper doily underneath the title banner, stamped my title with the Notable Alphabet stamp set and added two more Designer buttons from the Subtles collection pack. The banner was added in place using Stampin' Dimensionals.
I used the Remember This and That rotary stamp (from the annual catalogue, page 130) to add the date at the bottom.
