FSC Meets Shirl’s Class

Fashionable Stamping Challenges this fortnight have a theme of  “Springtime” which was picked by ME.  Combined two birds with one stone at FSC this fortnight.

It’s been quite a while since I have shown what the girls have made in my Saturday class and because everything looks vibrant and sunny I decided to add as my DT piece.

Started teaching them scrapbooking a while back and below is the page that we made yesterday.  Used a mask called Heart Frame it’s from Creative Expressions.  This mask is perfect for scrapbooking because when inked through it leaves a frame and the girls are able to add their photos later.  Also left a space for their journalling.

I am teaching the girls that their stamps are not just for cardmaking but they can be incorporated into their scrapbooking as well.  As you can see loads of stamping on this page.  We also used the new bird stamp from Sheena Douglas.  Love this stamp to bits.  It also has a die that matches.

Because my group are quite advanced, just doing a scrapbook page is not enough so I show them how to create a card using all the same elements that we used on the page.


I would love it if you hopped on over to see all the DT’s work as they are simply stunning.  Also don’t forget that the winner of this challenge has $20 to choose anything they like from Flonz’s store.

    Hi Shirley…It is amazing how many things we can use stamps and inks on. Your girls must have been chuffed with this, it looks fab. I love the matching card too, the bird looks a bit on the cheeky side 🙂

    Bet you all had a great time making these with all that inkyness and stamping. Love the matching card. As Dot said, that’s one cheeky looking bird.

    The stencilled frame is a great idea, matting on card adds an extra layer and unless I can die-cut there’s always a risk of wonky lines! Great stamping on both layout and card.
