Simply Scrappin' with Merry Moments!

Good grief! Where has October gone?  Sorry I haven't been around much but I'm back!

I wanted to show you how versatile the Simply Scrappin'® kits are. Each kit contains 8 sheets of 12" x 12" card stock (in four different colours), 6 sheets of double-sided 12x12" paper (3 of each design) and 3 sheets of card stock stickers.  

There are four kits in the Annual Catalogue and one in the Autumn / Winter Catalogue. 

Today I am using the Merry Moments Simply Scrappin'® kit from the Autumn / Winter Catalogue pictured below:

Merry Moments Simply Scrappin'® by Stampin' Up!

Aren't the colours lush? They are Basic Grey, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla  Fantastic for Christmas crafting but also lovely for male cards.

I wanted to show a couple of projects using this kit so I split it into two and today's post shows the 6" x 6" Scrapbook I made with one half.


Four sheets of plain cardstock (one of each colour) were cut down into 6" x 6" squares to give sixteen pieces.  A "spine" was then scored down each piece at 1/2" using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool and two holes punched through the cardstock.  The scrapbook was tied together using a length of 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon in Old Olive.  


The pages inside were all decorated just using the papers (3 sheets) and card stock stickers from the kit. The stickers are fabulous quality and the adhesive is initially respositionable (for about an hour) so if you change your mind and want to move a sticker - you can! 

The corners were rounded using the Corner punch. I added photo mats in Very Vanilla card but you don't need to do that.  Here are some of the pages, 



And the back!


This would make a fabulous gift for Christmas - either as an empty scrapbook or complete with pictures. The kits cost £18.95 and you could make two complete scrapbooks this size by just adding some ribbon.
