May 2007 Pocket Pages

May 2007 trip to Whiteshell Provincial Park is now scrapped! Last night I printed the map of the campground we stayed in with our tent onto Whisper White cardstock. I didn't take any pictures of our campsite! I'm a little furious with myself but I am thankful for the pictures I do have. I believe the right side of this layout was one we did at a crop but I moved a few things around when I found pictures of our trip to the campground.

Second two page spread of our trip. You may recognize the right side of the layout above from a Facebook live I did a few weeks ago. The left side I kept very simple, no embellishment and no journaling to make the pictures the focus.

And the final layout for our trip. I'm going to miss the Delightfully Detailed Memories & More Card Pack when it retires on June 3. You can see all the products in the Delightfully Detailed Suite in my online store here: https://www.stampinup.com/ecweb/products/21003/delightfully-detailed?dbwsdemoid=2157916

Supplies
Stamps: None
Colours: Mint Macaron, Blackberry Bliss, Basic Black
Accessories: Delightfully Detailed Memories & More Card Pack, Everyday Label Punch, Faceted Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals, Variety Pack 12"x12" Photo Pocket Pages

May Crop in Support of Relay for Life!

Thanks to everyone who joined us this past Saturday at our May Crop in Support of Relay for Life - we raised almost $150! That is awesome.

3D project using a acetate treat box and some new products. The Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Stitched Nested dies are in the new catalogue that starts on Jun 4, 2019. The sentiment is part of the Vibrant Vases stamp set, we masked the bottom part of the sentiment before stamping.

Both Lisa and I used the same retiring designer series paper on our projects! The All My Love designer series paper worked so well with the stamp set and the embossing folder.

Scrapbook page designed by Lisa. A mix of some new product - the Stitched Nested dies and some retiring designer series paper - the All My Love Designer Series Paper.

A lovely z-fold card. This card features the beautiful Country Florals embossing folder that everyone received in their grab bags very well. This card features the Varied Vases stamp set that is very similar to the Vibrant Vases stamp set everyone received.

We had a bonus card with our make and takes this month! Lisa created this beautiful card using the Narrow Note Cards, Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper and the Stitched Labels dies.

Water Falls Pocket Page

A new goal for me this spring and summer - make more scrapbooking pages, whether they are pocket pages (my favourite type) or full 12"x12" pages. I hope that you can join me either here on my blog or Facebook at www.Facebook.com/FromWhereIStamp or join me at one of Crop Kingston's all day crops.

My page today is from my camping trip in May 2007. Created this page during my Facebook live and it was very hard to not take a long time picking what I wanted to use for this layout. But I love how this turned out. Maybe I need to use a timer when I scrapbook so that I spend less time being indecisive and more time creating!

Supplies
Stamps: None
Colours: Blackberry Bliss, Basic Black, Mint Macaron
Accessories: Delightfully Detailed Memories & More card pack, Faceted Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals, Variety Pack 12"x12" Photo Pocket Pages

Thanks for stopping by today!

April Crop in Support of Partners In Mission Food Bank

Thank you to everyone that joined us last month for our All Day Crop in support of Partner's In Mission Food Bank here in Kingston. Myself and another demonstrator have teamed up to run Crop Kingston that runs all day crops almost every month and 2 weekend retreats! At our all day crops we have 4 make and takes - a card, a pocket page, a 12"x12" scrapbook page and a 3D item for everyone to make using product in their grab bags. For April everyone received a package of How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper and we used that paper to make the following projects:


I designed the pocket page and 3D card this month. The How Sweet It Is DSP is bright and fun!


Lisa created the card and scrapbook page for us. She used the Sweetest Thing stamp set and dies for her projects.

We hope that you can join us for our next crop on June 22!

Flowers & Leaves - Global Stamping Friends

Welcome to May's Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop - focusing on Flowers and Leaves.

At Onstage a few weeks ago we were given a pack of the new Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper that will be in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue starting in June. One side of this DSP has shiny accents and it has bright bold patterns. At first I thought the design on the sheets were too busy for me but then I found a card on Instagram by Janina Baltrusch and I cased it! The large leaves, butterfly and bee are all cut from the Designer Series Paper. Whereas the other leaves are cut out using the Leaf Punch.

Supplies
Stamps: Stitched All Around (greeting)
Colours: Crushed Curry, Mint Macaroon, Garden Green, Whisper White
Accessories: Leaf Punch, Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper, Rhinestones, Stitched Shapes Dies, Stampin' Dimensionals, Linen Thread, Subtle Embossing Folder

Thank you for stopping by today, it would be lovely if you left me a comment before moving on to visit Libby's blog.
