Thank you for joining me today as I am once again playing along with the February Stamp ‘N Hop blog hop.
We are a group of SU! Demos from all over the world sharing their love of Stampin’ Up! You are able to join us if you like, but we do ask that you are a current SU! Demo & that you use current SU! products.
You may have arrived from Mo’s blog where I’m sure you would have seen her fantastic project.
This month is all about “LOVE”.
I don’t do Valentines so I thought I would try & create a “love” card for the male in your life.
I’m happy with how it turned out. Not too feminine but not too manly. In fact you could probably use it for either male or female. Mind you, it could easily be turned into a Valentine’s card by changing out the sentiment.
Thanks again for visiting my blog. Next up isJenna. All you need to do is click the NEXT arrow below the photo.
In the event that you get lost, there is a Roll Call of everyone playing along. All you have to do is click on the names & you will be taken to their blog.
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.
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.
Next up on the hop is Michelle. Just click on the “NEXT” button or from the names below in the Blog Roll. When visiting the blogs, please don’t forget to leave a little love by way of a comment. I’m sure they will appreciate it.
Remember my post from last month when I ask you all to vote for my card? Well it worked! Thank you so much, it is very much appreciated. As a result, myself & 9 other lucky Demos get to hop along with Kylie
Once again our theme is “Love”.
Warning – you may need sunnies!
My card is one I’ve sort of been working on for a couple of days not knowing how to finish it or where to go & just sitting on my desk. Does that ever happen to you?
