Embellish It...This Week At Mark's Finest Paper!


It's time for this week's Scrapbook Challenge over at MFP Speedy TV!  Our newest challenge is to make a scrapbook page using at least three embellishments.  I have to admit, I may have gone a little overboard!  I have used embellishments galore!


Remember this challenge is strictly scrapbook layouts, no cards please.  You have to use stamps on your pages. They don't have to be Marks Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co stamps but if you do use them you will be entered twice for a chance to win.  And here's the super-cute stamp you could possibly win this week!



I'm loving the daisies!


Here's some more photos from the same east coast trip in 2007 that I used last week.  While we were in New York, we just HAD to jump on the Staten Island Ferry so we could get a closer view of the Statue of Liberty!  The Statue was closed for renovations while we were there, so we couldn't go onto Ellis Island, but the view we had was absolutely gorgeous!  And of course, I had to throw in some pics of my cute daughter!


For my pages this week, I used some really cute papers from my stash that had clear overlays that really add a little something extra.  Unfortunately, they are so shiny, they don't photograph well!  I really dug deep in my stash of embellishments and stuff that I had put aside for Smash*booking and found all kinds of goodies I had forgotten I even owned!  Don't you love/hate it when that happens?!?


I had some die cuts made from Kraft paper that I had totally forgotten about, so I stamped some cute sentiments on them.  The first one (above) is from MFP's All Postal stamp set.  I keep finding myself going back to this set over and over.  I think I've probably used it in at least one project a month since it came out...and that's just on the projects I've posted!

The second sentiment is a new favorite of mine and came out just this month on the Take Time stamp set.  I feel like I'm going to be using this sentiment a lot too on my pages in the future!


Please join us this week for our embellishment challenge!  You have until next Wednesday at 8 pm EST to link up. See you there!!

Happy Scrapping! ~Amy E

Hey Amy!! I love these pages!! They are great! I love all the embellishments. I sometimes get lazy, and I forget to use embellishments, so this is my early New Years Resolution is to use the millions of embellishments that I own, and don't to get to use! Thanks for the kick in the butt that I needed!! Karen♥
