alexandra's Sunday scrapbooking - Background Stamp on a 8" Layout

Hello dear Friends! For this week-end Scrapbooking with Penny Black, I'd like to share WEEK40 of the "2013 in 52 Page" project...
Bonjour chères Scropines! Pour ce rendez-vous scrap avec Penny Black, je vous propose la SEMAINE40 du projet "2013 en 52 Pages"...
➾ stamp used // tampon utilisé: Crystal Pattern
➾ creative dies used // matrice utilisée: Tagged

To make the background, I stamped the slapstick with three different shades of inks and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
Pour réaliser ce fond, j'ai d'abord encré le tampon avec trois couleurs d'encres puis j'ai embossé le papier avec de la poudre transparente.
The creative die is cut in a piece of self adhesive cork. I added a "w" for week on it and some sequins around it...
La matrice a été découpée dans un morceau de liège auto-collant, j'ai ajouté un "w" pour semaine...

The journaling is printed on a tag which slides in and out of the pocket...
Le texte est imprimé sur une étiquette qui se glisse dans la poche...
and here is the page... can you spot my Friend Virginia and her DH John?
et voici la page... vous reconnaissez Scropine Virginia et son époux Dr. John?

Thank You! Merci!

You know you are absolutely my memory-keeping hero, right?!? It's week 40 and you're still right on track. And in a quality way too ... no quick and easy pages for you. Love the pic of you and Virginia : )

AND, I'm so darn excited that I get to be your first commenter! I'm usually in the 40's after all your other admirers.

Joining Kelly, I am happy to line up and comment as no. 2 :) Love your use of the stamps! The colors are so striking, Alexandra! I must put those stamps and inks on my wish list!! Enjoy your Sunday! Miss you (have a post BTS about Chicago today)!

I just showed this to Dr. John and he saw his photo on YOUR scrapbooking layout! He thinks he has "made it" as he is now FAMOUS thanks to you! LOL.

Brilliant page! The background stamp is fabulous. Love the dies too! xx

This layout is very clever and packs a lot into an 8" page! Love your attention to detail.

The way your background stamp echoes Lily's top is brilliant & I love the gradation of colours with the different blues. The eye really picks out the blues in the layout & I like the way the colour leads the eye from the background down to Lily's top & then up to the top right photo.
Just delightful.
