Sail Away Scrapbook Page

This scrapbook page was part of the Soul Scrappers SSQ8 challenge.  They sent me an envelope of embellishments and I had to use all of them on the page.  Several items on this page are retiring on June 30th, so you still have an opportunity to purchase them before they are gone.  For instance, I used the Presto Patterns Specialty paper as my background page.  I used the Direct to Paper Technique for this page.  The Presto Patterns comes white with an embossed image on it.  I added ink by taking the ink pad and rubbing it all over the paper and the white lines were reveled.  I cut out old blue jeans with the Top Note Die.  Isn't it cool how the Top Note fits into the Presto Patterns?  The other tools that will be retiring are the Cogs Extra-Large Double punch and the Star Extra-Large Punch.
There are also two preview items from the new 2011-2012  Idea Book and Catalog.  See the banner?  It was made with the new Petite Pennants Builder Punch, isn't it too cute?  See the two circles under the globe?  They were made with the new Perfect Pennants Bigz L Die.
If you don't have a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator of your own, please consider letting me be yours.  Drop me a note and I'll explain my online club to you.
