Hi, I'm Susie Jefferson and I'm thrilled to have been invited by Kay and Graham of Blade Rubber Stamps to come and talk to you today all about what I know about scrapbooking. Hi, here we're going to see about how to create your own scrapbook kit. Now, the first thing you can do is go to any store and you can buy a themed scrapbook kit like this.
This one is going to have chipboard letters in it. It's going to have embellishments –sorry, I stole some of these from one of the segments previously. It's going to have journaling blocks and it's going to have papers.
So really, everything that you need to get scrapbooking is going to be in here apart from your photos. You've even got some text and of course with these little blank letters, you push them out, you decorate them yourself, stick them on and you're good to go. Now, what about if you want to do your own theme and you want to build a scrapbooking kit yourself? Let's have a look very quickly at just three themes.
I'll start off with the papers. There's a gorgeous glittered one, Parisian. There's that lovely piece of dress patterning.
Both of these have got glitter on. If she's not glittery inclined, what about this one that's just nice, vintage, lovely colours? Little bit of pink, little bit of brown, whatever you want to put with it is going to go. Or perhaps you'd rather have something patterned: paisleys, perhaps she's a little bit into hippie chic, boho.
These will cut up into borders so you could use them as borders, use them as frames, whatever you want. Little journaling blocks or even something like that which is really really jazzy. So again, the emphasis is on the paper, one big picture and you're good to go.
So what else would I put with it? Right, so let's see what I've piled up here. First off, chipboard letters. As you can see, these are already a glossy finish, they've got rather a nice gold bits on the top, nice coloring go with all of the themes, little butterflies with diamantes, sweet.
These are actually on little pop dots on the back so just peel them off and stick them down wherever you want and they're going to stay dimensional. Right, here we have some little paper embellishments, little crowns and things. You can use them as journaling blocks or just as decoration.
Three little lengths of ribbon so that you can string them up. As you can see, that one's got a little hole in it so some of them will act as tags as well. Butterflies.
Who doesn't love butterflies? A symbol of hope and love, and of course very pretty and they go with everything. And any color, they will go with all of these themes. Just a touch of glitter, not too much.
Stickers, these are postcodes, so little remembrances of far off places. This is the sort of thing if you don't know what to put down, put on something like this and it always looks really artistic and kind of mysterious. And if you've had a splodge of paint or a dirty thumb or something, absolutely perfect for covering up any little mistakes, and then of course, lettering.
Different styles, you can get epoxy, these are stickers, different ways of spelling words. And I think anybody could say that you can do a lot of really nice work with this particular outfit. Right, now let's have a look for the Christmas theme.
Loads of goodies here to show you and of course for Christmas everything goes. Now, I have shown you this paper before on the layout to my left. Don't forget, you can have other papers as well.
You can go as mad as you want. Here are some stickers, these are chipboards so they are going to sit very beautifully off your page. Ribbons, rick-rack, stickers, even more stickers.
These have got little furry pom-poms stuck to them, little elf shoes. And even these, great fun. Just peel them off and just put them on your page.
Perfect, absolutely perfect. I don't know anybody who's doing a Christmas background who wouldn't love some of these. And this is going
