Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop July 2018


Welcome to the new Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop!  This hop is a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators who are using SU! products to preserve their memories.  As you hop through the blog hop, you will see projects from some very talented demos across the blog.  This month we were given a sketch to work with.  This is my finished project:


The Broadway Birthday suite was perfect for this page commemorating my niece's second birthday.  

This is the sketch were given to work with:


I wanted to keep the embellishments on this page to a minimum so the focus was on the picture.  The Lemon Lime Twist striped background paper is from the Broadway Bound Speciality Designer Series Paper pack.  I added punched balloons in Lemon Lime Twist, Gorgeous Grape, and Melon Mambo with Basic Black Baker's Twine strings and a small bow made from Lemon Lime Twist ombre ribbon.



For the page title, I die cut the word 'Wish' in Melon Mambo with the Broadway Lights framelits and used a glittered enamel dot to dot the 'i'.  The words 'Make A" were stamped with Gorgeous Grape ink on Lemon Lime Twist cardstock. I used the Triple Banner Punch to make the banner.


All items used on this page are current Stampin' Up! products, except for the number '2' which is from the retired Large Number framelits.

Share What You Love: 2 Cards


I have a tendency to hoard printed paper.  I don't know why!  I love it and love to use it, but always feel I need to save it for just the right project.  I'm determined to get over that and start using it up!

 
The first card was inspired by an older sketch at Clean & Simple Stamping.  For the sentiment image, I first stamped the flower in Crumb Cake ink and then stamped the sentiment over it with Rich Razzleberry.
 

To add just a little bling, I used the adhesive rose embellishments from the  Share What You Love Embellishment Kit.  This kit includes two different sized labels, bakers twine, pearlized thread, roses, paper clips, and comes in a really cute box that can be re-purposed for gift giving!

 
The second card is similar to the first.  I used the same layout but switched the position of the DSP and the Crumb Cake cardstock.

Broadway Birthday


(First off, I need to say, please ignore the smeared ink.  I threw the card in my bag for work and the condensation from my morning protein drink got the card wet. Unfortunately, I had no time to remake it.)
The inspiration for this card came from this week's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  Here is the sketch:
I love the 2-step stamping on the sentiments in this set.  The Stamparatus makes it so easy to line the stamps up perfectly.  The base of the word 'wish' was stamped in Lemon Lime Twist and the dots in Lovely Lipstick. Those dots can be bit tricky. They appear larger or smaller depending on how much pressure you use when you stamp. When I first stamped it I used too much pressure on the H and not enough on the W.  No worries though, I just closed the Stamparatus and stamped again, applying more pressure to the W.
