Today I am not only taking part in the very first Blog Hop – Scrapbooking Global – Stampin’ Up! but it is Day 4 of my DSP Showcase. It is a FB Page for anyone who love SU! Products & who scraps. There are over 3500 members. If you love Stampin’ Up! & you love to scrap then why not join us.
Thank you for visiting. You have just arrived from Jessica’s page which means you are now half way through the hop. I do hope you are enjoying the pages that everyone has created & getting lots of ideas.
Our Challenge this month was to create our page using the Sketch Layout. Easy, right? Well, I thought so to but for the life of me I’ve had heaps of trouble coming up with a page that I liked. I think I may have been overthinking things which then creates all sorts of hassles.
Those of you that visit my blog, know that I do layouts for my niece & post them down to her. Sometimes, they include photos, other times they are just the layouts & she selects the photos. The journaling is mostly all left blank as I love her to write in her own handwriting. I think it means more this way.
Anyhow my photo is one of Bon & her brother Jesse who was married in Argentina in April this year. They are very close which I tried to capture in the layout including the colours in Bon’s dress & the black of Jess’ suite. I’ve kept my page very simple as I didn’t want to take away from her gorgeous lace dress. I have been a little loose with my layout as it is a little different to the sketch.
I lightly sponged Balmy Blue onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock before randomly stamping the image from Touches of Texture & a piece of the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper was adhered top right hand corner. This paper suited her dress perfectly!
The photo was mounted onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock. The journaling area is a piece of Whisper White with a piece of the Specialty Paper adhered to the top & let hang over a little.
The “love” was die cut from Basic Black using the same Framelits & adhered to a piece of Whisper White. All 4 pieces of Whisper White were then adhered to a square of Basic Black & then to the sponged Whisper White.
The letters were cut from Balmy Blue & Whisper White, adhered onto each other but off centered a little before adhering to the Basic Black Square. The little butterfly was die cut from Balmy Blue & Whisper White while the subtitle was typed & printed onto a piece of Whisper White, mounted onto a piece of Balmy Blue & then adhered to the page.
