I am a member of a Facebook Group called “Stampin’ Up! Scrapbook Global” & the challenge last week was to case (copy & share everything) a favourite layout from the gallery. There are so many wonderful layouts that I was sort of torn as to which one to do, but eventually I settled on a great page created by Scrappam Boum Thank you so much for your inspiration! You created a gorgeous page.
I have used retired DSP but I am happy with the page just the same. You could easily change out the designs to current product. For me, it is a great excuse to #loveitchopit some of my DSP that is still sitting on my shelf.
If you read my blog, you know that I often create pages for my niece & post them down to her. Sometimes I will add photos, other times the pages are left blank for her to add photos. The same goes for the journaling – sometimes I do it & other times it is blank for Bonnie to do it.
I randomly stamped the bunch of flowers from the Birthday Blossoms Stamp Set onto a 12″ x 12″ Whisper White CS in Night of Navy, Marina Mist & Calypso Coral Inks. I wanted to bring the colours out in the photo but at the same time not make it to “flowery”.
I cut a couple of pieces of the Celebrate Today DSP (2015 Occasions Catalogue) & layered them down the Whisper White Card. I again cut 2 pieces of DSP from the same pack, punched a banner shape into 1 end of each piece with the Banner Triple Punch, cut each piece back to size & adhered them across the same Whisper White Card.
The photo was matted onto a piece of Marina Mist CS so that it wasn’t White on White & then mattered onto a piece of Night of Navy – again bringing out the colours the blokes are wearing & adhered to the page on an angle.
A flower was stamped onto scrap Whisper White with Calypso Coral Ink, punched with the matching Pansy Punch & adhered to the page with a Stampin’ Dimensional. I then decided to stamp a leaf onto scrap Whisper White in Old Olive Ink, fussy cut it before adhering under the flower.
My journaling section was stamped with the bunch of flowers in Calypso Coral Ink, punched at one end with the Banner Triple Punch before layering onto a piece of Night of Navy CS which was cut back enough for a small edge to show around all sides, punched with the Banner Triple Punch & adhered to the page. The actual journaling has been done with the Journaling Pen.
