G’Day & welcome to the Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop where this month’s theme is all about Kits. This can be either Card Kits or Project Kits. Let’s face it Stampin’ Up! have lots of great kits in the current catalogue.
The great thing about these Note Cards & Envelopes, all the work is done for you. All I had to do was select a design & card. In fact, I actually used these cards to send out to some of my customers for June.
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.
I am just scraping this in by the skin of my teeth as I thought I had already created this post so I am very lucky that I checked it before it went live. Sometimes, things just seem to get on top of you & you get carried away with doing other “stuff”.
