Today's project is another one that I shared at the Creative Connections event last week. It is a scrapbook layout featuring the Leaf Punch on page 49 of the Holiday Catalog. Some of my team members sent me this beautiful bouquet of flowers for my 20th anniversary with Stampin' Up!. I wanted to remember their kindness with this photograph saved on a scrapbook layout.
The colors in the bouquet were my inspiration for this layout. Each Stitched Shapes Framelit has a 2 3/4" x 2 3/4" Basic Black Cardstock mat. The front of this layout features the Eclipse Technique. This used to be called the Shadow Technique, but it was aptly renamed in 2017.
I used the Leaf Punch on each of the Stitched Shapes Framelits. To add some texture on the punched out leaves, I put them inside the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder and then through the Big Shot. The Mini Dimensionals fit perfectly on the three leaves to reattached them to the Stitched Shapes Framelits. Make sure to slightly offset the leaves, so the Basic Black Cardstock peeks through.
On the back side of this layout, I added a 5 1/2" x 12" Very Vanilla Pocket. I used Tear & Tape on three sides of the pocket to keep it secure. The pocket is perfect to keep the cards that I've received about my Stampin' Up! anniversary.
I used the Triple Banner Punch and Basic Black Cardstock to make the banners. The Large Letters Framelits were perfect to use for the word "cards".

We got our roof replaced on Saturday and they finished in one day! This morning, our contractor and our insurance company finally reached an agreement on the costs to replace all of our siding. Hopefully, that will happen in the next couple of weeks. Today, I'm prepping the projects for my October events. And, tonight, I'm excited to watch our oldest grandgirl's swim meet. Have a terrific Tuesday!
