Yellow Tulips with Jade

Today's card is a fancy fold card but you wouldn't know it by looking at the picture. At the team zoom meeting in July another demonstrator - Tanya shared how to make this fancy fold card. I love how easy it was to make but without a fold it was hard to take a picture of it without the front falling down.

It was neat to see what each of us created using our own paper and colours! This second picture shows the inside of the card. Lots of space to write a greeting!

Pretty Cards and Paper Blog Hop - 6"x6" Paper Packs

Welcome to August's Pretty Cards & Paper Bog Hop! For August we are using the 6" x 6" Colour paper packs found on page 150 of the Annual Catalogue. I'm using the 2020-2022 In Colour designer series paper for my scrapbook page.
My favourite In Colour is Just Jade! On my layout I've paired it with Pretty Peacock and Soft Sea Foam. I decided my layout would be 8.5" x 11" as I haven't ordered any of the 12" x 12" cardstock in any of the colour families yet. Depending on what page protectors I have, this might be layered onto a 12" x 12" piece of cardstock so I can slip it into the album. 
 
On my layout I've used the Tasteful Touches stamp set using Pretty Peacock and Soft Sea Foam ink. The feathers are fussy cut and I stamped one of the detailed images many times on the base of my layout.

Scrapbooking Global - Sketch

Welcome to August's Scrapbooking Global blog hop!
This month we are using the above sketch for our layouts!
My take on the sketch was to flip the sketch onto its side with the pictures at the bottom. I had the sketch photo saved on my phone and had the picture pulled up on the screen, then turned the phone around until I liked the look of how the rotated sketch. This helped me to visualize how to change up the design to work with my pictures. 
 
These cake photos are from 2005. One cake made for Canada Day and the other just cause I had fresh raspberries! I had a hard time deciding what colours to use for my layout but decided to go with Purple Posy, Soft Sea Foam, Real Red and Whisper White. The designer series paper is from the Playing With Patterns 6" x 6" DSP and the gems are the Wonderful Gems from the Aug-Dec Mini Catalogue. My husband thought they mimicked the raspberries and I agree! The stamped title and leaf are from the Banner Year photopolymer stamp set.

Crop Kingston - Greenery Virtual Crop

Earlier this month was Crop Kingston's August Virtual Crop. We used the Forever Greenery designer series paper to create either 6 scrapbook pages or 8 cards. Today I'm sharing with you my original design that was included in the instructions and then an alternative layout I created live during the crop.

These pictures are from June 2011 when Chad, Hoover and I went camping at Charleston Lake Provincial Park. My favourite place to camp! These pictures are from our hike along boardwalk trail. I love the patterns in the Forever Greenery DSP. The pattern I used for the layout's base made me think of pond scum or moss. I added 2 panels of the darker green pattern to mimic the ferns growing along the trail.

My alternative layout, created during my Facebook live on the Sat morning, uses the same products but laid out differently. My second page will be the right side layout to the first one so I wanted it to look very similar but a little different. Hoover's picture is 4"x6" and the two smaller pictures are 3.5"x3.5". I changed up which designer series paper I used from the same pack of DSP.

Global Stamping Friends - Favourite Bundle

Hello and welcome to August's Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop! This month we are sharing our Favourite Bundles from either the Annual Catalogue or the new Aug-Dec Mini Catalogue. Mine fav right now is the In The Pines stamp set and matching Pine Wood Dies. The great thing about Bundles is you save 10% when you order the two items together! The second great thing about Bundles is they coordinate and work so well together. Do you have a favourite bundle?
My card pulls colours from the Plaid Tidings designer series paper - Crumb Cake and Pretty Peacock then paired them with Sahara Sand for the card base and Garden Green for the hills. I love that the Pine Wood dies include hill and slope dies so that we can add dimension to our cards and scrapbook pages. I'm looking forward to using this bundle on some camping layouts in the future!
Thank you for stopping by! Next you are headed to visit Rachel and see her lovely project! ~ Amanda

Black Ice Trees

The August to December 2020 Mini Catalogue goes live today! The new In The Pines stamp set and matching Pine Woods Dies were a must have for me.
These two cards were made using the Black Ice Technique. I shared how to do this technique for July's team Zoom meeting. We've been doing more creating during team meetings and it's fun to see what everyone comes up with!
Both of these cards also use the new Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series paper.

Do you have the new catalogue yet? Contact me if you live in Canada and I will send you one or you can download the new catalogue here: https://su-media.s3.amazonaws.com/media/catalogs/2020%20August-December/20200804_AD_en_CA.pdf
