We made this scrap page at my scrap club two weeks ago. We are doing two pages per class. Some of the paper in this page is retired; however, what I do is create a page and then ask them to pick out two pics for a page and have them select their colors and we find them DSP to match and go from there. So NO, I did not allow anyone to use retired paper. Next time we meet I will have to take pics of the club members pages and share them as well.
Here is what I used to create this layout:
Stamp Set: Wonderful You, Petals Jumbo Wheel
Paper: Old Olive, Whisper White, So Saffron and Petals and Paisleys DSP (Retired)
Ink: Old Olive Classic Ink Pad and Basic Black Classic Ink Pad, Old Olive Jumbo Roller
Accessories: Tempting Turquoise 1/4 Grosgrain Ribbon
Thanks for looking!
