Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop: Sketch Challenge

Welcome to this month's Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop!  This hop is a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators who are excited to share their passion for scrapbooking and memory keeping. This month we worked with a sketch to create our projects, so as you work your way through the hop you will see similar, but yet very different pages based on the same sketch.  At the end of this post you will find a 'next button' to take you to the next blog. 

I mainly used products from Stampin' Up! Country Lane product line, but also pulled the woodgrain background paper from the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series pack (yes, that's a Christmas paper!). 

This is the sketch that the page is based on.  The sketch was a lot of fun to work with.  I played with a few different ways to interpret it, but in the end decided to follow it  I pretty literal. I think the only change I made was the size of my photos.

The circles were cut with the 1-1/2" circle punch from the Country Lane DSP, Blackberry Bliss cardstock, Chicken Wire elements, and Galvanized Metallic Paper.  The Galvanized paper was embossed with the Tin Tile Embossing Folder (my favorite EF from the catalog!).  HINT: To get a clean punch with the Chicken Wire elements, layer the 'chicken wire' on a piece of scrap cardstock or copy paper when punching.  

My title was cut with the Silhouette Cameo.  I've had my Cameo for quite a while but haven't taken the time to really learn how to fully use it, but I love that I can use any font on my computer to create a title for my scrapbook pages!

When I first joined Stampin' Up! almost 10 years ago (yikes!) I did it to get a discount on all of my scrapbooking supplies and thought I would only stay a demonstrator for a short time.  Over the past 10 years, I have probably made less than a dozen scrapbook pages!  My pile of pictures to scrapbook has only grown.  I've recently had an increased desire (maybe even a need) to get these pictures in albums.  So, whether you follow me here, by email, or on Facebook, expect to see more scrapbook pages in the upcoming months.  I have some BIG changes planned for the future, so I hope you'll stick around to see them!
