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.

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.

Next on our hop is Sue McDonald

Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop – Ribbon

Hi Friends,

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.

Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop - March 2020 Ribbon

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!. 

Music Stave used as border on a scrapbook layout

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!

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.

Products used to create this project


Blended Seasons Scrapbook Page

I know many of you love to scrapbook and have a lot of experiencing doing this. I struggle to get photos in an album let alone scrapbook with them! In the past I have dabbled with a few scrapbook layouts to create newborn baby gifts.

The project I undertook a couple of weeks ago was much more involved and I put a lot of my heart into it because it was around my daughter. This photo was taken at her cousin’s wedding in Tasmania earlier this year and I just love her simple, natural look here.

I used several products on this layout including the Blended Seasons bundle and products from the Tea Room Suite. The Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper worked in so well with the colours of Cassidy’s dress. I tore the edge and dabbed it with Soft Suede ink to give it a distressed look. 

Behind the photo I’ve added added a die cut from the Stitched All Around dies. Several flowers were stamped and coloured in Calypso Coral, Petal Pink, Old Olive and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends. These are quite quick to fussy cut. I then die cut leaves from the Blended Seasons dies, cut them apart and arranged around the flowers.

The Olive green panels are from the Tea Room Memories and More Card Pack and I’ve also added some Wood Twxture DSP which has been matted onto Soft Suede cardstock.

I really love the sentiment as it expressed exactly what Cassidy is – a blessing in my life. It’s from the Very Vintage Hostess set and has been embellished with a Copper Vinyl sticker which is also from the Tea Room Suite.

The Blended Seasons bundle is only available until 31st August. It’s a set that covers all seasons and you will get a lot of use out of it. I know I have been creating a lot with it. If you love it now is the time to get it before this promotion runs out plus every $90 spent in August earns you a $9 Bonus Days coupon. This can be spent in September so you get extra value with your purchase. Please contact me with any questions or feedback.
