8"x8" Scrapbook Page-Simply Said

This is a 8" x 8" scrapbook page i made the other day for a demonstration. You could easily turn it into a 12" x 12" by layering this onto another piece of blushing bride card stock that size. The stamp set i used to make this page (simply said page 43 idea book & catalogue 2010-2011) was the first stamp set i ever bought and got me into Stampin' Up!(thank you Fiona) 3 years ago & i still love using it. I just love this colour combo too, blushing bride and basic grey, so pretty! TFL :)

Supplies Used
Cardstock-Basic grey, Blushing Bride
Stamp Sets-Simply said,just perfect alphabet,wonderful favourites
Ink-basic grey
Punches-1" circle,3/4" circle,decorative label
Accessories-3/8" white taffeta ribbon,distressing tool,scissors
