Progressive Scrapbooking Page

Here is a Progressive Scrapbook Page that I created in honor of National Scrapbooking Day (May 1, 2010). I've also included instructions and a list of the materials used to create this page. All materials are from Stampin' Up! and most can be found in the new Summer Mini Catalog.
This Progressive Scrapbooking tutorial I adapted from Stampin’ Up! Million Dollar Demonstrator, Mary Polcin. The Progressive Scrapbook page starts from creating a 6 x 6 scrapbook page and then “progress” or build up to the next size page of 8.5 x 11 and then finally a 12 x12.
1 – 12x12 Tempting Turquoise cardstock Builder Wheels
1 – 12x12 Whisper White cardstock Candle Crazy
1 – 8.5 x 11 So Saffron cardstock Birthday
1 – 8.5 x 11 Pumpkin Pie cardstock So Many Stars
1 – 8.5 x 11 Whisper White cardstock 1 ¾” and ¾” Circle Punches
Cardstock scraps of Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise and Whisper White
Island Oasis Designer Series Paper Round Tab Punch
ReInkers Tempting Turquoise and Old Olive
Old Olive 5/8” Grosgrain Ribbon Top Note Die
Old Olive ¼” Grosgrain Ribbon Pennant Die XL
Old Olive and Tempting Turquoise Ink Pads Party Hearty Stamp Set

Take the 8.5 x 11 Whisper White cardstock and cut (1) 5 ¾” square and (2) 3 ¾” squares in Paper Trimmer.

Take the 8.5 x 11 Pumpkin Pie cardstock and cut (1) 6 x 6 square and (2) 4” squares in Paper Trimmer.

Layer the Whisper White onto the Pumpkin Pie cardstock.

Cut the stripe DSP of the Island Oasis paper to 2 x 6 and apply the 5/8” Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon, make a bow and attach a button with mini glue dots. Thread on button was a sliver of So Saffron cs.

When layering the 6 x 6 page onto the So Saffron 8.5 x 11 cs only apply adhesive on the left, right and bottom of the page so that a “pocket” is created at the top of the page. Use the Top Note Die to create journaling tags and to attach additional photos, also used the round tab punch and ¼” Old Olive grosgrain ribbon on the ends of the Top Note die .

The scallop circle is created by using the Pennant XL Die, there are 4 scallop circles on this die and I used the scallop that did not have the score lines. Stamp “celebrate you” from the Party Hearty set onto Whisper White cs, punch out with 1 ¾” circle punch, stamp gift box, punch out with ¾” circle punch and all pieces are layered using dimensional.

The page title was created using the new builder wheels in the Summer Mini catalog. All three were rolled out together on the 12 x 12 Whisper White cs and then the “Happy Birthday” wheel was used alone with Old Olive ink, trimmed out and applied using dimensionals.

Let me know if you have any questions.
