Scrappin' up a stack!

Well, I am officially feeling "scrapped out".   I've been working on designing the (6) 2 page, 12x12 layouts for my first ever "scrap-a-stack" happening next week.  The participants will each make 6 layouts at this class -- great way to get a substantial start on your scrap books, if you haven't started yet, OR add some interest and variety to your current books.

For these layouts, part of my goal, was to use up a bunch of retired DSP I am inundated with, so some oldies but goodies are having a chance at another debut! :)

Layout #1: a direct CASE from one I saw made by Kay Kalthoff on Pinterest.  Features the Beautiful Butterflies SU Bigz die, the Top Note die, Tasteful Trim die, butterfly punches, and the Flowering Flourishes stamp set.

Layout #2: "Ok, Smile!" -- Spice Cake DSP -- combining More Mustard and Pool Party.  Seems like an odd combo, but isn't it stunning?!  That gorgeous medallion is from the Daydream Medallion stamp set and its matching framelits.  This layout came from an idea I saw in a CTMH catalog.  These silver flourish frames (framing the title) are in the SU Clearance rack right now -- $2.79 for a set of 8!

Layout #3: "Sweet, sweet moments" This layout idea was shared with me by my friend, Leah, when I was feeling completely out of scrappin' Mojo.  I don't know where she got the idea, but isn't it neat?  The papers I used here are from the "Mocha Morning" specialty DSP pack.  Also featured, is the Flower Shop stamp set and matching punch, and

Layout #4: Thankful for you!  I used the new Expression Thinlets from the new Holiday catalog for the "thankful" word -- cutting it out of the champagne glitter paper.  So stunning!  This layout idea was taken from another of Kay Kalthoff's layouts that I saw on Pinterest -- she did a Halloween one for hers.  Also featured, in this layout: Bitty butterfly punch and larger butterfly punch, the swirl stamp from the "Everything Eleanor" stamp set, Oval Accents Bigz die, the Deco Labels framelits, retired lace border punch, and the Round Array stamp set and 7/8" scallop punch.

Layout #5: Love U!  featuring the Expression Thinlets dies again for the word "Love" -- cut out of the red glitter paper.  Very simple layout I took from a sketch I saw somewhere.  Also featured: Hearts framelits, Chalk Talk framelits, 3/4" circle punch, and the Beautifully Baroque embossing folder.

Layout #6: "Owl Always Love You".  This layout features a darling little owl stamp set with matching framelits that I got off the Sizzix clearance rack a while back when they were having a big sale.  I adore little owls anyways, and that little cute baby owl -- well, I just could not resist!!! Also featured: the 1 3/4", 1 1/4", and 7/8" scallop punches and the Itty Bitty punch pack to make the flowers -- you snip between the scallops to create the petals of the flowers.  For the edging, I used the Finishing Touches edgelits -- SO easy to use now with the magnetic platform!!!

If you've made it ALL the way to the end of this eternal post, congratulations!!!!!  Don't forget, the special this month is the bitty butterfly punch paired with the matching "Papillion Potpourie" stamp set -- a lovely combo that I reach for all the time -- I used the bitty butterfly and the larger butterfly punch on the first layout featured here.
