Three Generations

My Brushy Creek Community Center buds coerced me into teaching a class on scrapbooking. Okay, while I love to scrapbook, teaching it is just not my forte. But, ever ready for a challenge . . .

I feel more creative turning every day things into a scrapbook page than when I use store-bought pre-packaged embellishments, so we talked about making scrapbook pages with office products. Of course, Stampin’ Up!’s Office line was a big source of inspiration. Here’s the prototype I worked up for the ladies.


This is a very sentimental page for us. My father-in-law worked as an engineer for Westinghouse for 37 years. My husband has worked for TECO Westinghouse for twelve years as their assistant controller, and my son’s first job out of college last May was in the marketing division at TECO Westinghouse. We celebrated my son’s new job at a lovely restaurant that used to be a bank. Our table was actually in the original bank vault that they’ve now turned into a wine cellar. It seemed appropriate.

To make our faux bulletin board I bought a roll of cork sheets from Michaels that was 24" x 48" and cut it down to 12" x 12" sheets, just enough for the eight ladies. The "frame" is from sheets of chipboard cut 12" x 1". I painted them a base coat of chocolate brown, and showed the ladies how to use crackle medium and apply a top coat.

I had a table full of office products, not the least of which was my favorite old-fashioned label maker. There’s a picture of it here. We used staples, paper clips, envelopes, stencils, tag, miniature file folders, and just anything else I could drag out of my home office. The Stampin’ Up! round tab punch and spiral punch worked nicely, too. And, of course, the Office Accoutrement stamps and Notations designer paper was perfect. Brads made great thumb tacks on our bulletin board.

I wish I’d taken pictures of what the ladies made. One used the ideas to make a school page for her daughter, it was adorable. Another used it to put pictures of a trip, and another used it for her family reunion album. They were all great. And, well, trying to act like I know how to teach scrapbooking, we talked about visual triangles and color balance and anything else I could make up.

We got down to business (sorry, pun intended), but we had fun.
