For the Birds Scrapbook Pages

Hey, Stampers! Today's project is a 12x12 scrapbook page spread featuring the For the Birds Stamp Set. This pages were inspired by a layout in an old Scrapbooks Etc. magazine. I loved all the fun polka dots in brightly colored paper, and the images on a series of tags. 

I know, I went a little crazy with all the punches but I was just having so much fun! The list of punches I used can be found below, but you can use whatever punches you have to make these pages. 

This is what the two page spread looks like. Click on the photo to see it larger.


The pretty pink hearts were made with Silver Glimmer Paper. I used a Regal Rose Ink Refill and a Sponge Dauber to color the Glimmer Paper, then I dried it with my Heat Tool and punched with the Small Heart Punch. 

Rhinestones colored with an orange Sharpie make a perfect center for the Boho Blossoms. 

Aren't these little guys adorable? The images were stamped on Whisper White Card Stock with Black Stazon Ink and colored with an assortment of Stampin' Write Markers. So easy and fun to do!

This little trio of birds was stamped with an image from the Itty Bitty Bits Stamp Set, and punched with the circle from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack.

Just a few more close up shots, as it's kind of hard to get an idea of what the images look like on the 12x12 page shots.

Love this stamp set, and I LOVE your use of color on this page! I don't really scrapbook, but I am brainstorming ways to turn this into a card! ;) Thanks for the inspiration!
