The most challenging part of scrapbooking for me is finding creative ways to make journaling boxes.  I used to purchase pre-made journaling boxes and papers, but now I’m trying to use only Stampin’ Up! products and they carry a limited number of  products specifically for scrapbooking.  I’m learning to be much more creative.  I plan to challenge myself each week to come up with a new creative idea to add a journaling space to my scrapbook pages!

small scallop envelope dieThis is the Scallop Envelope Bigz Die (#113462 RETIRING) and its fabulous!  Bigz dies and framelits are tools that make creating your scrapbook pages quicker and easier.  I’ve stamped the En Francais (#109521) stamp in Riding Hood Red ink on Riding Hood Red card stock (RETIRING).   I’ve tucked one of the tags from the Two Tags Bigz Die (#115954 RETIRING) inside.  I will use this to journal on and it tucks nicely in the envelope.   I’ve decorated that with the Printed Petals (#120444 RETIRING) stamped in Regal Rose (RETIRING) and punched with the 1-3/8″ scallop circle punch (#119860).  I layered the A Round Array (#129090 SNEAK PEEK from the new catalog) punched in the 7/8″ scallop circle punch.

My final pages have every journaling box or tag that I made.  I would ordinarily not put this much on one page, but I wanted you to see the possibilities with these retiring products.  They are great for use with scrapbooks, let alone the uses they have during holidays!!!

I am having a great time creating videos, projects and blog posts to share with everyone!  I can’t believe how many people I’ve met and how many great new friends that  I have made, including my Upline, Shelly, and my Downline, Freddye!  When you join under another demonstrator and then people join you, you can’t help but become fast friends as you support and encourage each other while growing your stamping businesses!!!

Do you need a new hobby or a project to occupy your time?  That’s what I needed when both of my kids went off to college.  I felt like a little lost soul without them to throw my energy into.  Now I have this great new project and I’m having a blast!!!!

I would love to have you join me whether you want to build a huge stamping business, run a little business that supports your hobby or maybe pays the electric bill, or whether you just want to get your stamping supplies at a discount!
