Scrapbooking Global July Blog Hop

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.

Amazing You

Amazing-You---Close-Up

G’Day stampers,

Today I am sharing with you the cards I posted off to my team last week.

A couple of each cards were created using the Celebrate You Thinlits.  They were teamed up with the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper which was randomly cut & Celebrate You Thinlits, Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper, Stampin' Up! #celebrateyou #sponging #delightfullydetailedlasercutpaper #teammembers #vickywright #makeacardsendacard #loveitchopit #stampinupadhered to a piece of sponged Whisper White Card.

The Whisper White Card was sponged with Grapefruit Grove & Mango Melody Inks using the Stamping Sponge & adhered to a Base Card of Night of Navy.  All I did to make them a little different was turn the sponging upside down before adhering to the Base Card.

The words were die cut in Night of Navy, Grapefruit Grove & Mango Melody Card before adhering over the top of the Specialty Paper.

Dragonfly-Dreams---Close-Up

G’Day Stampers,

Today is I am sharing with you one of the cards we created in class last Friday.  I wanted to show the class that you could do more with your Embossing Folders then just emboss Cardstock.  We did a little sponging over the top of the embossed card.  It is only a little thing but it made our cards come alive!Dragonfly-Dreams---Inside

I originally created the card for one of our challenges some time ago & thought it perfect for a class as it involves a few different things including using the Blender Pen which is how we coloured our Bumble Bee from the Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set.  We also used the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits.

Bubble Over

Bubble-Over-DSP---Close-Up

I love the Bubbles & Fizz DSP from the 2018 SAB Brochure.  I especially love that it matches the Bubble Over Bundle in the 2018 Occasions Catalogue which includes the Bubble Over Stamp Set & the Bottles & Bubbles Framelits.

The bottle has been sponged in Daffodil Delight before the bubbles were stamped in the same colour.  The star was stamped in Calypso Coral & then punched out with the 7/8″ Circle Punch.

The sentiment was stamped in Calypso Coral while the end was die cut using the large Bubble-Over-DSP---Insidebottle cap die.  I love it when I can get multiple uses from my dies.

Gift Card Holder

Along with Christmas Cards, we have been creating Gift Card Holders.  Let’s face it, these Foil Frenzy Speciality DSP, Colorful Seasons, Gift Card Holderslittle things can come in quiet handy this time of the year.  In fact, they may be used throughout the year for all occasions.  I have created this Holder a few years back for another class but thought it time to revisit.

For our Holders, we went with the Foil Frenzy Specialty Paper – love, love this paper.  The week previous, everyone was give the option of choosing their favourite colour to create their Gift Card Holders.  I love it that everyone’s was different.

Once the Belly Band had been created, we used the snowflake from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits  to create our main focal point by sponging a die cut circle, die cutting the Gift-Card-HOlder1snowflake with the Seasonal Layers Thinlits & then inlaying it back in with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  We finished them off with a large Rhinestone (retired).

The ladies enjoyed their class & were tickled “pink” with their Gift Card Holders.

Hearts-Come-Home---InsideYou can find the Technique Tutorials by clicking on the Technique Tutorials Page.

My card today is one we created in our class a couple of weeks ago.  We don’t have snow at Christmas in Australia so I tried to create a bush Christmas.  I’ve use the “Hearts Come Home” Bundle, Page 39 of the 2017 Holiday Catalogue.  The Bundle includes the “Hearts Come Home” Stamp Set & the “Hometown Greetings” Edgelits Dies.  I teamed it up with the “Hearth & Home” Thinlits to create my theme.  Santa racing through the sky finishes off the scene.
