JAI Sketch Challenge #110-Scrapbook Page

The sketch challenge at JAI this week screamed scrapbook page to me! I made a card using it yesterday and today 3 boxes of "heaven" arrived with my friendly courier. Once I had collected my eldest daughter from school I checked off the contents assembled toys tools and got to work. The sketch:
My first scrapbook page for 2012:
I received the Big Shot, Tasteful Trim die, Timeless Type Junior Alphabet die and Fresh Vintage Stamp set today. I own lots of retired DSP but only have one packet of 12x12 in Crumb Cake so I stamped the Fresh Vintage in Crumb Cake randomly to create a background. I also received another die that is a sneak peek. Here is a close-up:
The colours I have used are: Tempting Turquoise, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo taken straight from the colour coach. I am off to cook dinner for my hubby, it will be late because I just had to make this page. Thanks for stopping by. Amanda


  1. Love that you've used this sketch for a page - love the tasteful trim border - thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week!

  2. I am glad our sketch challenge at Just Add Ink allowed you to play with your new toys, oops tools! Great to see another scrapbook page using the sketch as inspiration.

  3. Great use of the sketch Amanada. I really like how you have stamped the CC piece with the Fresh Vintage floral. Thanks for playing along with us at JAI this week.

  4. Well done on making your first page for the year!
    I can see you've had lots of fun playing with your new "toys". I love the way you've used the tasteful trim on the page and the letters look great too. Glad you could play with us at JAI this week.

  5. Don't you just LOVE that Tasteful Trim die??!! It's a great 'anchor' for the letters down the side of your page. Love the bright colours you've used, Amanda.
