Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop – Trusty Tools

Hi friends, For our Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop we are following a sketch by our Guest Designer Margaret Hammersley Spencer. This is my second blog hop today and I’m on a roll with the masculine themed projects. For this layout I’ve used the Trusty Tools bundle.

For the first time I created an 8″ x 8″ page adding the Fresh as a Daisy DSP and Tartan Foil DSP on my base. This might become a new favourite as I’m loving the more condensed version where I can still preserve memories in a more compact way.

I coloured in some tools with Stampin’ Blends and the tool box was blended in Sweet Sorbet using a Blending Brush. I added a few little additions with some leftover Silver Foil I had. Silver Foil is making a much anticipated return in the 2024-2025 Annual Catalogue which is sure to please everyone.

My sentiment was added directly onto the tool box for a personalised touch. This would make a great gift for Father’s Day with some pictures of Dad added in those frames.

Each week my newsletter subscribers receive an exclusive free tutorial and this week this page layout will be one of the tutorials included. To subscribe click here.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today and I hope you have been inspired to scrap your memories and perhaps create a gift with them.

Please follow our hop through for lots more inspiration using this great sketch.

Scrapbook Sunday Blog Hop – Let’s go Fishing

It’s time for another Scrapbook Sunday Blog Hop with the Crafty Collaborations team. I’m using the Let’s go Fishing Designer Series Paper which has some lovely generic neutral designs in addition to it’s fishing themed images.

For the top of my design I angled a small strip of DSP. This was balanced with a strip of the same DSP at the bottom and the largest DSP panel which were both placed at the same angle.

I wanted to create space for smaller photos as well as a feature larger photo. Using the Stylish Shapes dies square die I created my polaroid look photo frames. At the back of it I added some Gray Granite mattes for the photos. Some Black and White photos would look great in these 3 smaller frames with a colour photo for the larger frame.

I’ve also used the Beauty of the Deep bundle for some stamped and die cut images adding some fussy cut fish from the DSP to swim around my page.

The large frame was placed straight to ground all the different angles that were on the page, bringing it together with another strip of DSP at the bottom.

This Designer Series Paper coordinates with the Let’s go Fishing bundle which will be carrying over into the new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue. The paper is currently on our Last Chance sale and reduced to $10.87 (from $21.75), Grab yourself a pack (or two) of this while supplies last.

New at SU Blog Hop – Rock Star Scrapbook Page

Hello and welcome to the New at SU Blog Hop where this month you will see – all sorts of creations but not a card! Our team will be sharing with you a range of different projects using products from the Mini Catalogue and Online Exclusives collection.

New at SU Header 2023-2024

I’ve got a scrapbook page to share with you using the Rock Star bundle and the entire Rock & Roll suite. This suite comes with a stamp set and coordinating dies, Designer Series Paper and embellishments.

I blended the trio of blues at the base of the Designer Series Paper to create an ombre effect.

The plectrum was die cut from the Rock & Roll Designer Series Paper and heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder 3 times. This gave it a beautiful shiny finish just like the real ones.

I accented my page with lightning bolts which were die cut from Shimmer Cardstock and coloured with a Dark Highland Heather Stampin’ Blend to coordinate. The star embellishments were coloured in with the Dark Night of Navy Stampin’ Blend and these were placed around the page amongst the various elements.

Please stop by my page later on today to see another page created with this same bundle but with a totally different look. I’ve been having some Rock & Roll fun!

For more inspiration please follow our hop through. Thank you for taking the time to have a look at my project inspiration. I look forward to seeing you back again very soon.

If you live in Australia and currently don’t have a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I would value the opportunity to help you with a catalogue, place an order, learn more about classes, information about the Starter Kit or anything else.

Crafty Collaborations Scrapbook Sunday Blog Hop – A Little Latte

Welcome to the Crafty Collaborations Scrapbook Sunday Blog Hop. Thank you for stopping by and visiting me in Melbourne where it’s the early hours of Monday morning. I’ve got a fun layout to share with you using the A Little Latte suite which is a new Online Exclusive product.

This suite is perfect for those coffee lovers and would definitely work for hot chocolate fans too. I particularly love the cute little coffee art.

I’m following the page layout from Sketch n Scrap #292 and I used the A Little Latte Designer Series Paper exttensively, right down to die cutting some of the cup images.

SketchnScrap, scrapbook layout, sketch #292

All the pieces of the perculator were die cut from Basic White Cardstock and coloured in with a combination of Stampin’ Blends. For the glass piece I added some light Pecan Pie blending to give the look of coffee through glass.

I matte the 2 photo mounts on Early Espresso and Pecan Pie Cardsttock to have contrast against the background layers. A few coffee beans scattered around complete this page which is perfect for filling in with some images of a coffee date with a friend.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today and I hope you have enjoyed what I have shared with you. Please follow our hop through for more scrapbooking inspiration.

aWow Blog Hop – Sketch 102

Awow Blog Hop, Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop Header

Welcome to our Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop where every 2nd Wednesday of the month, our team based around the world, share Stampin’ Up! inspiration. Today we’ve got a sketch challenge and we could choose one of these variations.

A couple of weeks ago I celebrated my big 50. As part of of my celebrations, over the entire month of September I shared a card each day created with a different sketch during my Sketchtember Challenge. So with today’s sketch I thought I’d do something a bit unusual for me and create a scrapbook page with the layout on the left.

A friend of my daughter Cassidy took 800 photos (yes you read that right) on the night of my party. I am still sifting through what to post on Facebook! Got to love a young lady who takes her party duties seriously. I thought a family photo would be nice to place in this page layout with a similar colour palette to my birthday celebrations which was pink, sage and gold.

I am not a scrapbooker but I do love creating these layouts and I like that I can display them in a frame or shadow box and change the pictures out.

I started by cutting an entire sheet of Hues of Happiness DSP to 3.5 cm strips. Now that took courage to chop that pretty paper. Have you seen the other side? Papercrafter struggles! Then I laid all the strips together and blended Polished Pink ink over some areas through a mask before assembling it on my Crumb Cake Cardstock. Did you know we have a range of 12″ x 12″ Cardstock in our entire colour range? This makes it so easy when creating larger projects or gift boxes.

I stamped several of the flowers from the Happiness Abounds stamp set in Crumb Cake ink. This provided a more subtle outline and blended with my colour palette well. I coloured them in with a mix of Stampin’ Blends as shown below.

How to colour the flowers

  • Stamp in Crumb Cake ink
  • Light Petal Pink over entire flower
  • Some shading with Dark Petal Pink
  • Highlights of Light Polished Pink through the centre and at the base of some petals
  • Light Crumb Cake for shadow and depth at base of some petals

How to colour the leaves

  • Stamp in Garden Green ink
  • Long highlight strokes at base with Light Soft Succulent
  • Filled in with Light Soft Sea Foam
  • Add Dark Soft Sea Foam on smaller leaves to add shading at base

The number ’50’ was on the cupcakes which I had on my birthday and adding this to my page gave meaning to why we call scrapbooking – memory keeping. Also better than having this laying in a drawer with no purpose – now it has a place!
