A Scrapbook Page – Explosion Style!


Aloha, all!

     This blog post originally was part of the September 2012 SUDSOL blog hop.  SUDSOL – or "Simply Unique Demonstrators Sharing OnLine") has a fantastic library of samples and patterns for me to use when I need something for a class or even just a day-to-day blog post!  This is what I showed off as my contribution to the blog hop.  I went looking through some old patterns to try to find something that I could make using up-to-date materials to add to the library.

Closed Box

     A BOX?????  What in the world is so special about a box?  Well, in this case it's what's INSIDE the box! 

Open Box

     It's a full 12" x 12" Scrapbook Page, is what!  The design was a contribution to SUDSOL by former Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Sherry Robinson, back in early 2010.  Lots has changed in the Stampin' Up! catalog since then, and so I updated Sherry's sample with products both from the 2012-2013 Stampin' Up! Catalog as well as from the Stampin' Up! 2012 Holiday Catalog.  As you can see, there are seven panels where you can place a photograph as well as two panels that have a place to insert some journaling note.  Is that not cool?  And if you look REALLY closely you'll see my contribution to the blog hop from the Stampin' Up! 2012 Holiday Catalog!

     Here are two pictures that show how the page looks as I begin to fold it up…










…and as it's fully folded, ready for the lid to be placed on it.  (Well, it's actually sitting on the lid in this photo – the only way I could hold it closed AND take a photo!)

     Just quickly, I'll go over the Stampin' Up! products that I used for this project:  Lucky Limeade, Tangerine Tango and Whisper White Card Stock;    Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper; Fancy Fan Sizzix Embossing Folder; Sizzix Scallop Envelope Bigz Die; Tangerine Tango 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon; Rich Razzleberry 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon;  the 1-3/4" Circle Punch; the stamp set, Bright Blossoms (on the journaling paper).

Oh, and that Holiday Catalog product?  It's the Window Frames Collection Sizzix Framelits.  That is one product from the catalog that has GOT to stay around.  I've been using it so much, it feels like a main catalog product!


If you were able to follow the blog hop, I'm sure you had a fun time looking at all the projects!  And if you're too late for that, you could go back one post in my blog and see yet another project that I made from a pattern in the SUDSOL Library!

This is a gift my mother would love! She's in a nursing home and the 'box' would make a nice decorative element in her room and she could  open it whenever she got lonely. TFS!

It's fabulous, Robin!!  What a great gift this would make.  You've inspired me to make one for my son's Cape Cod vacation!
