Showing posts with label scrapbooking

Hello and welcome to the next stop in August's Pretty Cards and Paper blog hop. My project uses the Peaceful Prints designer series paper. 
Isn't the tree design so pretty? Usually I start a scrapbook page with photos but this time I started with the designer series paper. If you're unsure of where to start with creating a layout Pinterest is a great place to start. Another option is to cut some paper and place it down, more items around a bit, or maybe walk away from the layout for an hour or two. 

Were you able to join us for May's virtual crop? We used the Ice Cream Corner designer series paper for our projects and I wanted to share a couple of my scrapbook layouts with you today.
Using strips of designer series paper along with cutting out images from the designer series paper you can create a fun layout like I have above. The main piece of paper I chose from the Ice Cream Corner DSP makes me think of drizzled chocolate. What do you think? To finish off this layout you could use one 4" x 6" picture or even add another photo to the right of the white photo layer. 

Welcome to May's Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop and this month's theme is Brand New!
Since the NEW 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue started this past Tuesday it was perfect to design this scrapbook layout and use a NEW suite! The Hand-Penned Suite is a lovely subtle garden design with some of my favourite colours: Mint Macaron, Misty Moonlight and Pool Party. Another reason to love this suite is the coordinating Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack. The two 3x4" cards used on this layout are from this pack.

Welcome to April's Pretty Cards & Paper blog hop where we are sharing our choice of designer series paper!
I chose the Playful Pets designer series paper to create 2 layouts to share with you. Both layouts were used with the almost the same cardstock supplies. The first layout has a 3.25" x 4.25" Basic White photo frame whereas the second layout does not.

Butterfly layout
The Butterfly Brilliance bundle consists of the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set and the Brilliant Wings dies. Please note that the butterflies in the stamp set are one stamp and the butterfly dies in the bottom right of the above image are one die. You may carefully cut the butterfly stamps apart if you'd like (watch the video below and you can see how I cut mine apart) but I do not recommend cutting up the large die.

A scrapbook layout using the Paper Blooms designer series paper and the Approaching Perfection stamp set. It's missing a picture but I couldn't find THE one that I had in mind when this layout was created. It's has to be in with my childhood photos but I have so many photos! I'm sure you do too. And if you are like me you have layouts that are put together waiting for the time you find the picture you thought of when creating the layout or maybe for a future event. It would be interesting to know how many layouts you have waiting for pictures but I'm scared to count mine.

Welcome to the Spring Blog Hop where we are trying to chase away the winter blues while sharing our springy projects!
Thinking of spring is hard after amount of snow we received Monday night and I'm looking forward to seeing the daffodils and tulips pop up in my front flower garden! The front flower garden was my inspiration for this card. It showcases the Beautiful Friendship stamp set and the In Good Taste designer series paper found in the Annual Catalogue. This evening I'm sharing how I created this card during a Facebook live and I'll be using Petal Pink instead of Highland Heather as shown above.

Welcome to January's Pretty Cards & Paper blog hop! The yummy looking Ice Cream Corner designer series paper is our focus this month. This DSP was perfect to scrap my dad's birthday.
His birthday was earlier this month and with everything we couldn't be together to celebrate. My family has a tradition of sundaes from DQ that we started a few years ago. Everyone gets to choose what they want and we get to celebrate. Once everyone had their sundaes we met on Teams to enjoy and hang out safely. 

Hello and welcome to my blog and to the Curvy Celebrations blog hop!
My project is a 2 page spread for day 6 of my December Daily. This year I am using the 6"x "8 Basic Black album and the matching pocket pages. The main items used for other pages so far are from the Wonder of the Season suite. Since the colours in the Classic Christmas DSP has 2 colours that are in the Wonder of the Season suite they work well together!

Hello all and welcome! Hard to believe it is December but today is the Global Stamping Friends blog hop. Our theme is Leaves & Vines. My project today is a 6"x 8" title page for my December Daily pocket page scrapbook.

A few weekends ago we had our October Plaid Virtual Crop. We used the Plaid Tidings designer series paper for all our projects and today I'm sharing with you one of my layouts and an alternative version I shared during the event.
A few weeks ago we held our September Playful Pets Virtual Crop! We used the Playful Pets designer series paper for all of our projects and I wanted to share one of my original layouts (the first picture) and my changed version (the second picture). My changed version uses the same pieces of cardstock, a little different sized designer series paper and more pictures. I have fun creating different layouts using the same cardstock during my live videos in our private Facebook group. This way everyone receives more ideas if what we originally designed doesn't fit your style or maybe the pictures you have!
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.
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 2 pictures are from December 2004. I found them while going through my 19+ year photo pile. The Playful Pets designer series paper was sitting on my desk waiting for me to create projects for Crop Kingston's September Virtual Crop. It was perfect to use on this layout! There are matching trinkets that I've ordered to add to this page. The Playful Pets Trinkets are hearts and bones little embellishments that I think will work really well with this page. I'm excited to add them to this layout and use them on the samples for the crop classes. If you are interested in our September crop registration will open within the next 2 weeks.
Welcome to July's Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop! This month our theme challenge is Monochromatic. I found some pictures of my sister-in-law's wedding flowers that needed to be scrapbooked and her colours were white and yellow daisies.

We held our first Mini Virtual Crop this past Saturday. We used the 2020-2022 In Color 6"x6" Designer Series Paper and the Tasteful Textures bundle to create our projects. This layout was one of my designs. The pictures are of my husband from 2000 when we went camping with my family. I still need to figure out what I'm going to write for journaling (this is the hardest part of scrapbooking for me).
Scrapbook layout created as an additional inspiration project for our last Virtual Crop Kingston Crop using the Ornate Garden Suite. I was scrapbooking pictures from my Washington, DC trip when I was in Grade 9 (not going to figure out how long ago that was). Our next Virtual Crop will be on Saturday June 6th! Contact me to sign up.

The Dashing Deer stamp set and matching dies were perfect for pictures of our little excursion to find some deer in a field nearby my parent's home. And the Best Dressed designer series paper is very versatile for many projects. It was the perfect match for the deer images and pictures of our excursion.
For the past few weeks Stampin' Up! has given demonstrators a #KeepStamping challenge on the Demonstrator Facebook page. This week we were given a colour challenge.
