Progressive Scrapbook Page...

I have been trying to come up with some new fun things to present at workshops and as I was going through old notes I had taken, I found one that I had written from when Mary Polcin presented to us at Convention. Mary was the first woman from Stampin' Up! to hit $1 Million in Career sales. Anyway, she presented the progressive scrapbook page. Not something new, but it was new to me. I want to start including a 6x6 scrapbook page into my free make 'n takes for my workshops and I thought this would be the perfect way to show people what to do with the pages once they got home to have it accommodate whatever size of scrapbook pages they do. :)

Ok, so on to the pages. I first made a 6x6 page.
Then did an 8.5x11 base.

This is the 6x6 and 8.5x11 together.Then here is the 12x12 base.
The 8.5x11 and the 12x12 together.
Then all of the pages together.
I really liked doing this type of page. One thing that I sometimes get stuck on, is I have a big blank 12x12 piece of paper and sometimes it is overwhelming to come up with a cute way to fill it. So, with this I can start small and always have smaller areas to fill instead of being overwhelmed with the one big space. :) Anyway, if you have any questions be sure and let me know! :)

What I used:
Stamps: Love You Much
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Cardstock: Riding Hood Red, Close to Cocoa, Very Vanilla, Pink Pirouette
Accessories: Candy Lane DSP, Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon, Heart to Heart Punch, Scallop Edge Punch, Sponge Dauber (to antique all the edges), 1 1/4" Circle Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, Dazzling Diamonds, Dimensionals
