Progressive Scrap Page...

 I had the pleasure of doing a workshop/party for a lovely hostess last week and she had chosen the theme of scrapbooking. Now a 12''x 12''page is a bit much to do for a make and take at a party so I did a six by six inch page and then showed all the attendees how to make it into an A4 page and then how to make that into a 12''x 12'' page.
 I had wanted to have a go at this concept for a while but never had the opportunity to do it, so I really enjoyed having a go at this myself. I knew all the attendees made 12'' x 12'' pages as a rule and would be interested to see how they could take their finished 6''x 6'' home and alter it to make it fit their books.
Here is how it turned out..

 This is the 6''x6'', the embellished panel on the left of the picture pulls out for journalling to go on, it's then hidden behind the photo. We did a page like this at convention last year.
This is the A4, so the 6'' x 6'' has been placed onto the A4 page and I added some some more photos as well as the Heading which was made with my favourite Stampin'Up! alphabet "Lovely Letters", the flourishes are from another Stampin'Up! set called "Everything Eleanor"
 And this is the completed 12'' x 12'' I love how the pictures tell a story and the finished 12''x 12 " page has had a few more photos as well as some more journalling added to it. The true friend saying on the initial picture is from the set called "World treasures"and you will remember it from my Dazzling Lights technique when I used the Peacock from it. I also used the border stamp from that set too. The colours of the card stock used are the new in-colour Gumball green, Not quite Navy, Crumb cake and a little Cherry Cobbler.
I hope you enjoyed this page and how it was put together,please click on the photos for enlarged pictures. I'd love to know if you have a go at this concept and show me your finished projects. Take care and thanks for stopping by, lots of inky hugs from...
