6 x 6 Albumn in a Day

...actually it was more like 4 - 5 hours.  Holy cow!  I am still working on the Provo Craft Super Slab #10.  I scrap 12 x 12; but decided to do some 6 x 6 pages.  Lookie...

I used a "Scrapbook in an evening" scrap map provided by Stampin' Up!  Most all products used on the pages are SU! with the exception of the designer paper, the dew drops and a few of the embellishments.

Here's a list of items used to create these pages:
Stamps: SU! Journaling Fun (retired)
Ink: SU! Pale Plum Classic, SU! Perfect Plum Classic
Paper: SU! Whisper White, SU! Pale Plum (textured), Provo Craft Super Slab #10, SU! Perfect Plum
Accessories: SU! Button Boutique, SU! Embosslits Beautiful Wings, SU! Big Shot, Glue Dots, SU! Tearing Edge, Antique Keys (unknown vendor), Sticky Strip, SU! Stampin' Dimensionals, SU! Mini Library Clips, SU! Vintage Brads, SU! Buttons (retired), Striped Grosgrain (unknown vendor), SU! Small Tag Punch, SU! Tag Punch, Robin's Nest Dew Drops, Mono Multi, SU! Decorative Accents Die, Cuttlebug Textile Embossing Folder, Velour Rick Rack (May Arts), SU! Pretties Kit (flat backed pearls), SU! Decorative Accents #2 Die, SU! Linen Thread, Spiral Clip (unknown), Polka Dot Sheer Ribbon (unknown vendor).

So how do you approach a project like this?  How can you recreate this project?  Select two patterns, two solids and one neutral (white or vanilla).  You'll need two of each solid color.  Cut each 12 x 12 sheet in to 4 6 x 6 pieces.  Then start cutting and laying out the pages.  After all pages have been laid out, begin assembly.  I do some embellishing during lay out and assembly.  I do extra embellishing after I have all pages completed.  Now I have a wonderful set of pages...complete with "dummy" portraits...all I need to do is attach pictures in the sizes noted!

Neat, huh?
