More Ideas...

Here are some more project ideas...

First, a simple page:

I used:

cardstock Rings in Smooth Orange--my daughter plays for the Orioles, so the Ring was perfect for the title!

Lower Playtime clear stamps

Sports Slide Spots

a 3-in smooth, white cardstock circle-just add the details to turn it into a softball

Another simple page using the Classic Tags from the Frog Prince Collection (blue) by Piggy Tales.

I also used:

Spring Breeze cardstock Rings

"Friends" Ring Quotes

stamp from XL "Together & more" set
staple ribbon to each tag

This "pocket tag" was so fun to make!
Start with an ACCORDION TAG from the Yellow Flowers & Dots collection by Paper Loft. Yes, an Accordion Tag!

Cut it in half so that you have 2 sets of 2 connected tags.

Fold tag over and cut half off of top tag to make "pocket". Adhere on edges.
Cut an extra strip of patterned paper. Flatten a piece of raffia. Then fold raffia in a pleat and adhere behind print strip. Adhere to card. Adhere a button and add raffia to hole in tag.
Add a gift card and personal note-a quick, simple gift for a teacher, mom, or anyone else!

Here's a quick, simple page using the prints in the Daisies & Dots collection from Paper Loft:
11-inch heart
print Rings
scalloped Stacker
XL Father Slide Spot

I stamped the "together" stamp from our "Family & more" clear stamp set inside one of the Rings. Simply curve the stamp on your block and stamp several times.

I just love the Whoop De Doo collection by GCD Studios! The papers are great, and the name is fun to say!

Ice Cream page:
Classic Scrolls and 3x12 strip of paper both from the collection

Chipboard ice cream cone set-I painted the scoops and the cone, then stamped the cone with our XL Plaid background stamp.

Buttercream Rings
"Friends" Ring Quotes
A card from the same collection:
Scalloped Stacker from the Round Stacker set-score and fold to write sentiment underneath (as shown below).

Large Round Buttercream Stacker

Buttercream Rings

"Friends" Ring Quotes

Add some buttons and ribbons.

And the perfect envelope...our 6x6 envelopes & liners!

How about a great gift for new parents or grandparents! Here's what I used:

6x6 Chipboard Baby book (These come with 14 pages-great for our ABC Tag or Strip Kits.)

We simply painted the book with acrylic paint and added ribbon and a QuicKutz splat.

Boy Wall Hanging:

Classic Cirle Chipboard Book

Large round Stackers in Burning Ember

cardstock Rings in Cool Cantaloupe

Scalloped Stackers-Circles & Vines collection by Paper Loft

4-in chipboard letters

Playtime Uppercase clear stamps

I painted the edges of the chipboard circles with brown acrylic paint. I then layered the Stacker pieces, letters, Rings, and photos. Stamp the title and layer with a cardstock Ring. Use a Ring as the guide to crop your photo.

Punch a second hole in each circle and tie together.

I hope these ideas inspire you! Happy National Scrapbook Day!
