Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop

Welcome to June's Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop! Our theme this month is Birthdays and Parties.

I found these pictures of Hoover waiting to be scrapped and knew they would be perfect for today's blog hop. The background paper is a sheet from the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper pack. The frame around the main photo was made using the largest die of the Rectangle Stitched dies, then trimmed around the outside to create the thickness I wanted. I discovered when creating this page that the only current stamp set I have with candles or birthday hats was the Celebrate with Cake stamp set from the Stamping for Beginners brochure but it is a perfect fit!

Stamps:  Celebrate with Cake
Colours:  Seaside Spray, Sahara Sand, Early Espresso, Whisper White
Accessories:  Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper, Rectangle Stitched dies, Everyday Label Punch, Ribbon Punch Stampin' Dimensionals

Thank you for stopping by today! Head on over to Siggi's blog to see her wonderful page!

Matching a Scrapbook Page from 2005

Currently I am working on filling gaps in my scrapbooks - right now working on 2005, 2007 and 2008. The pictures used in this layout were just popped into a page waiting to be made into a completed layout! The opposite page was a 12" x 12" layout that was completed in 2010, as shown below.

On the pocket page I mimicked the brads using Pearls that I coloured Old Olive using the dark Old Olive Stampin' Blends. I used the Subtle embossing folder on the top left pocket and stamped the circle on a few of the 3" x 4" cards to carry over the design.

Stamps:  Swirly Frames
Colours:  Old Olive, Night of Navy, Basic Gray, Pool Party
Accessories:  Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper, Pearls, Old Olive Stampin' Blends, Leaf Punch, Tailored Tag Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, Subtle Embossing Folder

Sailing Away Easel Card

Welcome! Thank you to those that came to my Chocolate & Cards event last night at my home. We ate mini Mars bars and Peanut M&Ms while we crafted! Today's card is one we made last night.

I was inspired from a swap card I received at my upline's team meeting this past Sunday from Vicki. She used the Free as a Bird suite for her entire card. I was going to copy her exact card, had everything cut and ready to stamp and assemble. Then when I was going to glue the designer series paper onto the card base I noticed the gulls and decided to switch up the card and use the Sailing Home stamp set instead!

Stamps: Sailing Home
Colours: Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, Basic Gray, Whisper White
Accessories: Smooth Sailing dies, Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper, Stitched Nested Dies, Stampin' Dimensionals

Best Catch and Perennial Essence

Hello! Today I am sharing a two page spread using pocket pages that I was working on during my Facebook live last week. Friday night I took some time to finish the left side page since I did not have time while live to do so.

To finish off this page I stamped and then die cut the 2 images. I decided to leave them uncoloured and used a lighter colour since the main focus of this two page spread is the right hand side where my husband has caught his fish!

The sheet from the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper that I used for 2 of the pockets on this page makes me think of weeds viewed through water. The three stamped and die cut images were all coloured with Stampin' Blends.

Stamps: Best Catch
Colours: Mossy Meadow, Balmy Blue, Night of Navy, Soft Suede, Old Olive, Whisper White
Accessories: Stampin' Blends (Crumb Cake, Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, Smokey Slate, Daffodil Delight & Bronze), Variety 12" x 12" Pocket Pages, Well Written dies, Catch of the Day Dies, Tin Tile Embossing Folder, Subtle Embossing Folder, Stampin' Dimensionals

Global Stamping Friends - Birthday Celebrations

Hello and welcome to the June Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop with a theme of Birthday Celebrations and an added challenge for us this month was to make something outside of our comfort zone! I decided to create a 12" x 12" scrapbook page - something I haven't done in a long time! For the monthly crops I help run, Lisa creates the 12" x 12" scrapbook pages while I create the pocket pages.

These pictures are of my birthday from June 2007. When I found these pictures stuck into an empty 12" x 12" pocket sleeve I knew they would be perfect for today's blog hop theme! Thankfully I had ordered the new Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper. The piece of designer paper I choose works great with the colour of the cake.

Stamps: Perennial Birthday
Colours: Gorgeous Grape, Whisper White, Night of Navy, Wisteria Wonder
Accessories: Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper, Decorative Ribbon Border, Rhinestones, Subtle Embossing Folder, Well Written dies, Stampin' Dimensionals

Thank you for stopping by tonight! If you have a moment please leave me a comment before you head off to see Rachel's awesome creation!

Magnolia Cards

This is my first time using the new Magnolia Lane Memories & More cards and I love them! These cards were made during my Facebook live last Thursday and were very simple to make! No stamping but I did do some fussy cutting on the card above. The pink flower image was hand cut from another card and I coloured it in using the Petal Pink Blends to give it a pop of colour so that it stood out from the rest of the card.

The flower and leaves on this card are from the adhesive images included in the Memories & More card pack. The label and the sentiment are from another sheet of adhesive images in the same pack.

Stamps: none (images and words are included in the Memories & More card pack)
Colours: Petal Pink, Kraft
Accessories: Magnolia Lane Memories & More card pack, Magnolia Lane Memories & More Large Specialty Cards and Envelopes, Petal Pink Blends, Linen Thread, Pearls, Stampin' Dimensionals
