Thank you for joining me today in quite a gloomy day in Melbourne. They say it’s going to get sunnier this week so summer is on the way. Nothing like some crafting to keep the mood cheery. I’ve got some sweet florals to share with you for my scrapbook page for the Ink & Share Scrapbook Monochromatic Blog Hop.
I chose the Hand Penned Memories & More Card Pack to create my page in shades of green. When Stampin’ Up! provide us the products, why not use it? It sure makes it much easier. To give you an idea how much easier it is let me explain that I am not a scrapbooker but I love taking part in challenges that get me to stretch myself and learn new things. So here I am scrapbooking! Stampin’ Up! products make it easy to create and try things which you normally don’t do.
I added the Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper – Beautifully Penned which coordinates with the Hand Penned Petals bundle. You can earn this paper free with a $90 order and there are several other options as well.
On a Soft Sea Foam page, I mounted all my elements. A 20cm square of Beautifully Penned DSP was layered on a 20.6cm square of Soft Sea Foam cardstock which a coloured in Just Jade around the edges with a Blending Brush. I use this technique quite often to give muted colours. In this case I was able to match the colouring on the Memories & More Cards.
The flowers in the Memories & More cards looked like Pool Party so to keep in the monochromatic theme, I touched them up with a Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blend.
Some of the cards were cut apart and mounted on Soft Sea Foam cardstock (coloured as mentioned before) so I could create a different layout for my page.
For a focal element, I stamped a set of flowers from the Hand Penned stamp set and coloured with a mix of Mint Macaron, Just Jade and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.
The gems were also coloured with Light Just Jade and Light Old Olive to coordinate with the rest of the page.
All products that I have used to create this scrapbook page are listed at the bottom of this post.

Spring is in the air at our Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop this month. My page did have to include some pink – I just can’t have spring without pink!
I chose the Forever Blossoms stamp set and coordinating Cherry Blossoms dies and coloured the images with a mix of current and brand new colours coming in our Annual Catalogue.
Spring generally means weddings and I incorporated a sentiment from the same stamp set. I kept this page minimal in layout. as the combination of papers makes it interesting,
I am so enjoying these scrapbook challenges … and I hope you are too. Please make sure you follow the hop right through for lots of spring inspiration.

Welcome to my blog, Stamping Flair today. I am a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in Blind Bight, Victoria. Today I am taking part in the Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop and we are hoping to inspire you to use your ribbon stash, through the projects we share.
I created this scrapbook page with my daughter Cassidy in mind. Cassidy loves music and she is currently studying music and plays clarinet, guitar, piano and she also sings. She wants to be a music teacher so I think this would make a lovely page for some photos of her doing what she loves.
My page started off with me selecting a stamp set. So I chose my favourite from the Mini Catalogue, Music from the Heart. My next decision was ribbon – oh, my don’t we have ribbon to choose from at Stampin’ Up!.
The Tri-Colour ribbon is a little bit different and I thought that would be nice to use on my scrapbook page. I added some tulle ribbon as well as the White Silver Metallic edge ribbon to create a feature on my page.
Then I coordinated this with the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper to add to the Purple Posy base.
I stamped the stave on the top of the Whisper White cardstock which created a border on the top of the page. The stamp is not this long but as it is photopolymer, it’s easy to line it up.
The Treble Clef and notes were added to finish the ‘piece’. I showed Cassidy my completed project and she loved it. She also correctly noted (in jest) that the Treble Clef was on the wrong side of the stave! LOL. So this is an artistic Treble Clef not a musical one!
