G’Day stampers,

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 are36518126_10216049000962426_604109715940573184_n 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 Scrapbook---Fun-Times---Cloas 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 2 hearts were die cut from Balmy Blue & Basic Black Cardstock using the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits & adhered to a piece of Whisper White Cardstock.

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.

Kylie’s International Top Ten November Winners Blog Hop

Top 10 Winners

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?Sunshine-Wishes---Inside

The background has been created by wetting a piece of Shimmery White CS with an Aqua Painter & then adding Bermuda Bay & Daffodil Delight Re-Inkers, still with a wet Aqua Painter.   I love watching the colours flow.

The heart is from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits,while the flowers are from Jar of Love while the sentiment is from Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set.

Don’t forget to pop back tomorrow to check out Day 3 of my Christmas Cards.
