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.

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!

Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop – Spring

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!

Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop - March 2020 Ribbon

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.

Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop – Summer

Hi Friends,

Happy middle of the week! Wednesdays are great days aren’t they? Second half of the week means the weekend looms near. It’s extra nice because I get Wednesdays off from my regular job in a school so more time to craft. 

Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop Today I’m thrilled to be part of the Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop. I am a cardmaker most of the time and I jumped at the opportunity to participate in this blog hop as it just stretches my creativity and made me think big (scrapbook page size)!

I am a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator from a small coastal town of Blind Bight in the South Eastern suburbs of Melbourne. The beach is a short 5 minute walk from our home and it’s a lovely quiet area away from the busy suburbs. So when I found out the theme for this month’s hop was ‘Summer’ my first thought was Coastal Cabana for the beach and that’s how my page unfolded.

 

Scrapbook blog hop with a summer theme, Tropical Chic stamp set

The next product that I really wanted to incorporate was the striped So Saffron cardstock from the Magnolia Lane Memories & More card pack. The yellow signifying sunshine and bright days. 

Summer themed Scrapbooking page for Everyday moments

Summer evoked memories of my childhood in Sri Lanka with palm trees and bright flowers. The Tropical Chic stamp set had the perfect images for this.

Summer themed scrapbook page also suitable for honeymoon style photos

The flowers have been stamped in Memento ink on Shimmery White cardstock. Then I sprinkled Pigment Sprinkles on a clear stamping block and used an aqua painter to colour them in. The effect is so pretty and the colours are intense. A little goes a long way. The sentiments are also from the Memories & More card pack and I’ve layered them to create depth and interest. 

Memory Keeping with the Magnolia Lane Memories & More card pack

I’m so glad I have had this opportunity to participate today as it’s been a whole lot of fun. Make sure you stop by all the participating blogs and check out the fun ways everyone has interpreted Summer. Please click on the Next button to see what Cindy has created.
