Scrapbooking As Wall Art


I created the above project as a contest entry for National Scrapbooking Month in 2009 for Stampin' Up! Demonstrators. I did not win, but the project was posted on the Stampin' Up! Demonstrator web site.

It is a 12x12 scrapbook page framed to hang on the wall - and I repurposed old CDs ! I like to find new ways to use "trash". Chipboard or card stock circles will work, too. 

All of the supplies used were current Stampin' Up! products at the time.


My sample uses the following:
�� Bella Rose Designer Series paper
1 full sheet Riding Hood Red designed
1/2 sheet of the large Bella Rose print on Whisper White background
5‐1/2" square of two other patterns
�� Chocolate Chip 8‐1/2" x 11" card stock, approximately 1/2 sheet
2‐1/4" x 3‐1/4" for photograph mat
5‐1/2" square
�� Riding Hood Red 8‐1/2" x 11" card stock, approximately 1/2 sheet:
2‐1/4" x 3‐1/4" for photograph mat
2‐1/4" x 4‐1/4" for use with Scallop Edge punch
piece for Top Note die
�� Kiwi Kiss 8‐1/2" x 11" card stock
2 pieces, 2‐1/4" x 3‐1/4" for photograph mats
�� Whisper White 5/8"satin ribbon: approximately 11"

�� Chocolate Chip 5/8" grosgrain ribbon: approximately 6"
�� Linen thread (or embroidery floss)
�� Styled Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware
�� Chocolate Chip flower button
�� Stampin’ Dimensionals
�� Adhesive of choice (SNAIL, Tombow, 2‐Way Glue)
�� Sticky Strip (precut and adhere to the back of the chipboard circles)
�� Circle Scissor Plus or Coluzzle Cutting System
�� Designer Label punch
�� Slit punch
�� Scallop Edge punch
�� 1/16" Circle punch
�� Paper Snips
�� Sizzix Big Shot
�� Top Note Bigz die
�� Stampin’ Up! Texturz Plates and pads
�� Glue Dot
�� Red acrylic crafters’ paint
�� Chipboard circles or 4 old CDs (or card stock circles to create less bulk if you would prefer to use this as a scrapbook page)
�� Sandpaper






After cutting and sanding the Kiwi Kiss (with white polka dots) Designer Series paper, adhere it to the CD or chipboard circle.Wrap the 11" piece of Whisper White 5/8" satin ribbon around the circle so that the ends meet on the front, just off center to the right side. Adhere.Run a small piece of linen thread or embroidery floss through the button, tie in a knot and trim. Adhere to the ribbon with a Glue Dot.Use the Scallop Edge punch on each short side of the 2‐1/4" x 4‐1/4" Riding Hood Red card stock piece.Adhere the 2‐1/4" x 3‐1/4" Chocolate Chip piece on top of the Riding Hood Red scalloped edge piece.
