ColorBox “Outside the Lines” Scrapbook Planner Page

by | January 2nd, 2016 | 1


I confess, I am the epitome of chaos in the organization and planning arena of life.  I fly by the seat of my pants most days, and having to keep a schedule gives me hives.  In my previous life, I actually owned a planner-needless to say, it didn’t get much use.  I decided to unearth one of my planners and breathe new life into it using an array of Clearsnap Inks and NEW Wood Mount Stamps!


So, I didn’t completely follow the rules, but I had so much fun creating this “scrapbook feel” planner page!  I began the base of the page with some fun stamping using our new “Cityscape” Wood Mount Stamp (one of my absolute FAVES)and a border stamp from Stephanie Barnard; I used ColorBox® Archival Dye Ink to do the stamping because I knew I wanted to add a hint of color to the background using water diluted Aladine Izink Ink.


I was even able to add another of our fun Wood Mount Stamps “School Bus-” stamped using ColorBox® Mini Fluid Chalk Ink in “Butter” (the perfect size for on the go planning btw).


I added a heat embossed snow flake on transparency behind the photo, added some random stamping, and finished off the page with some splatters using Izink Ink, and like that-this page is complete!  Please step outside the lines with me and give your planner a little pizzazz!  Thanks for stopping by!

About Suzanne Austin

Hi!  My name is Suzanne Austin.  I’m a SAHM of 3 kiddos living on the Gulf Coast in Alabama.  I’ve been married to my wonderful husband for 17 years and counting!  I began scrapping shortly after the birth of our son, and like most haven’t looked back!  It wasn’t hard to become completely immersed in scrapbooking-the process, the art, the design-I am still in awe of the talent that’s showcased in this industry.  My style is pretty versatile (and still ever evolving), but I tend to lean toward the mixed-media and inky side of scrapping.  My motto: Just do it!  I love experimentation with new ideas and techniques. I tend jump in head first-no regrets. I love the enrichment (and therapy :D) this hobby has to lend.  I’m beyond excited to rub elbows with our talented Creative Team for yet another term!
