Mary Polcin, the 1st woman from Stampin’ Up! to cross $1 million in career sales, presented at convention. She showed us how she presents at a workshop, the process of taking a 6×6 page and building it into a 12×12 page. A concept that is not new I know- I have been in the gallery for this over at Splitcoast! I have never tried it until now. What a challenge for me…but hey all scrapping is a challenge for me!
Why this? I had a workshop yesterday and she requested baby items and a scrap page (The hostess’ sister had her baby boy 5 weeks early). I just love the outcome! and if you have never tried it you should. This was hard for me! but I loved the challenge and I am sure to do it again!
not to mention I dug out the sweetest pictures of my oldest son, who is now 10, of the 1st days he was born. Nice memories for sure!
Lets start with the 6×6 (they made this component at the workshop)
and the 8×11 base
and now the two together
And here is the 12×12 base:
the 8.5×11 page and the 12×12 page together:
And now the full 12×12 page:
So what do you think??? My kids say my husband has harry potter glasses! LOL

Way to go Jill! I love the page! A lot of "my girls" like to scrapbook-everyone uses a different size, so I usaully just demo a 6 x 6. This should go over BIG at the next club meeting. Thanks for another great idea!
Wonderful job, Jill! I used to do this "step up" demonstration at my workshops, but somewhere along the way I stopped. I'm gong to start doing it again. Thanks for the reminder and inspiration. Love your choice of colors, too!
This is really great! I can do this this and can't wait to try!!!!P.S. Loved the comment about the Harry Potter glasses….my kids comment on old pictures all the time.
This is fabulous! Totally going to do this. Thanks for the inspiration.
I have a ton of 6×6, I will have to try that! They turned out wonderful! The 12×12 is my favorite!
Jill, this is something I really want to get good at — I do scrapbook quite a bit but lack the vision I think I need to move from 6×6 to 12×12. I've asked my upline to show us this — I missed Convention but she made it! You did an EXCELLENT job of demonstrating the steps here. I just love how the 6×6 is the main picture. I just gotta get this technique down! Mary Gillmarten
This tutorial was wonderful! I've never understood this concept, but this made it very easy. I enjoyed the step-by-step process and how you explained it. Is there a possibility that you could do it one more time on your blog–using a different theme? I'll be checking back to see. Thank you!!
Very cute! Great job. I have been wanting to try that as well, have yet to find some spare time. Thanks for sharing!Emily
Oh my gosh! I have been working on trying to do this same thing and it is a weak area on the building it concept. I scrapbook so I am a little intimated to get started but I love it. I am definetely going to give it a try. I want to do a class using it but haven't as yet. Maybe I finally will.
I was totally inspired by your post of this concept. It made me feel a lot more comfortable showing off 6X6 pages. Here is what I did with your idea, thank you so much for sharing it. http://scrappychica13.blogspot.com/2008/09/my-progressive-layout.html
So cute, and definitely inspirational, especially since I have a 10 month old named Cameron! Thanks for sharing!
