Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop July 2018

  
I am so excited there is an amazing Facebook group called Scrapbooking Global - Stampin' Up!.    The best part of this group is that anyone can join it, they only ask when you post that you post projects that are completely made with 100% Stampin' Up! products.    

Every month they host a blog hop and this month, I had the privilege of being a part of the hop.    If you are hopping from one blog to the next, you should be coming from Sherry Roth.    I am the last stop in the hop, so if you are seeing me that I am proud of you.   I know hops take some time, but I am happy you stuck to the end because that means you have seen some amazing projects and you are on your way to dusting off your craft supplies and scrapbooking yourself.

Here is the link list if you missed want to join the hop or if you lost your place.







Scrapbooking makes me so happy.    I love when a page comes together and my photos which once sat on my computer or a stack of photos are now forever on a page to remember loved ones.   

Here is a picture of me and my guy.   I love these pictures of the two of from my birthday weekend.   He surprised me with a weekend getaway down the shore.  

This month's theme for the hop was a scrapbook sketch.   I used the sketch and add some small details to make it my own.  

The title comes from the retired Layering Love stamp set.   The florals come from the Tropical Chic stamp set.  I used the coordinating Tropical Escape designer series paper for the project as well as strips of Soft Sea Foam.    Baker's Twine and Sequins complete the project. 

I hope you enjoyed hopping.    If you are new to Scrapbooking Global - Stampin' Up!, please check out their Facebook group, you will not be disappointed in the creativity in this group.

Many More



I am super excited for The Project Bin they are building partnerships and this time we are partnering up with Word Art Wednesday.    Our team will be contributing projects to share on their site.   Such be a great opportunity for our founder Denise to be able to share her beautiful stamps.

I decided to use the new Many More for the Word Art Wednesday blog.    I love the Sleep Rest Recover sentiment.    I decided to go with a beachy theme for the project.   I used the Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide to mask a striped background.     I then stamped the image on Pink Pirouette and cut it and adhered it.   Such a simple design but makes me peaceful and makes me want to recover.

Little Twinkle


So I wasn't sure about the Fab Friday sketch of the week, but it kept calling to me.    I finally looked at some of the new things that came in from Stampin' Up! and decided to work with the Little Twinkle Suite which works perfectly for kid challenge as well on Inspire. Create challeng.    I used the Little Twinkle stamp set and the Twinkle, Twinkle designer series paper.    I decided to make two different color combinations for a little boy and a little girl.    The little boy cards used the Soft Sea Foam and the little girl cards used Petal Pink.     The finishing touches were Silver Cord and Rhinestones. 

  



Love You to Pieces


I am so proud of myself.  I have been finding time to do sketches.   I am super excited to say that this my third week in a row that I was able to do the Global Design Project team's challenge.    Such a simple design but so effective.      I even think I even have done this sketch design before in the past.   
I pulled out the new Love You to Pieces stamp set for the challenge with coordinating Puzzle Pieces thinlits.     Retired Stacked with Love designer series paper and the Heart to Heart punch help put the card together.      


Welcome Baby


The Project Bin just released another beautiful sentiment set that is going to be a must have in your stamp collection, it is called Many More with so many beautiful sentiments to use for so many occasions.  

I decided to start with the Welcome Baby image and sentiment.    I colored in the image with Stampin' Write markers in Crushed Curry.    I die cut the oval with my Stitched Shapes.    The florals were cut from Paper Studio designer paper and then I punched the leaves from the leaf punch.    The black and white designer paper comes from the retired Stacked with Love.    A button and baker's twine complete the card. 


Thinking of You


So I wanted to create a card for some friends that have been going through a difficult time to let them know that I am thinking of them. 

I started with a sketch that I was inspired by.   Then I stamped the butterfly and sentiment and found the sketch didn't work, so after a little playing here is the end result.    I love the butterfly from the Beautiful Day stamp set.   I decided with a bold color palette with my Stampin' Blends and I have to say loving the butterfly.   As for the sentiment it comes from the Everyday Occasions Cardmaking Kit from a few years ago.     The designer series paper comes from the Paper Studio.   Strips of black card stock and baker's twine complete the card.

Seagull with a Chip


I have to say I am loving Pineapple Punch and Lemon Lime Twist.    They are just the most fabulous colors for the summer!!     Add a Grapefruit Grove and you are going to love the end result.    I decided to first watercolor the inks with my Aqua Painter then I started looking over my summer stamp sets and tried to find one that would do the beautiful colors justice.    In the end I used the beloved seagulls from the My Favorite Things Seaside Seagulls which work perfectly for the By the Sea challenge on the Paper Craft Crew blog. I colored them in with my Stampin' Write markers.     The designer series paper comes from the Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series Paper.    Baker's Twine completes the card.



Daisies


So if you are a follower of my blog, you know I am a big fan of daisies.   As soon as I saw this week's Sunday Stamps sketch challenge, I knew I was going to create a card with it.     I pulled out the Daisy Delight suite for the card, the Daisy Delight stamp set, the retired Delightful Daisy designer series paper and the coordinating punch.   I stamped the card in Calypso Coral and So Saffron.     The sentiment comes from the Perennial Birthday stamp set and it was heat embossed.    Retired enamel dots complete the card. 



Make a Wish

  

So how much do you love the Broadway Birthday suite in the new Stampin' Up! Idea book and catalog.   What is there not to love.    The bold images, the colors, the amazing words.    It is a must have.   I have a feeling I maybe buying another paper pack before the end of the catalog is over.

I used the Freshly Made Sketch for inspiration and came up with this amazing card that is just perfect for a masculine birthday card.    I used the entire suite, the Broadway Birthday stamp set, the Broadway Bound Specialty designer series paper and the Broadway Lights framelits.    The diamonds were heat embossed.   Some black twine completes the card.

Happy Independence Day

  

Happy Independence Day!  What better than the Red, White and Boom stamp set from The Project Bin to pull out for your Fourth of July projects.   Here it is paired up with the Pebbles Americana designer paper.   I used the CAS Colours & Sketches for inspiration.     I am loving the end result.   I may have to use this sketch for another project.     Corner rounding, buttons and linen thread complete the project. 



Thanks

  
I am so happy to be finding time to do challenges.  It's been a nice break the last couple of days to find time to stamp and play with my crafty goodies.   It makes me sad when I see my goodies sit on a shelf and I don't get to create.   

I also love to be challenged.   I especially love when the colors are not something that I would choose.   Like this week's Global Design Project color challenge, like Grapefruite Grove, Fresh Fig and Mint Macaron.   Not my normal color scheme, but I love my end result.   I pulled out the leaves from the Rooted in Nature stamp set.    Then I die cut the Greeting Thinlits and second part of the sentiment is also from the Rooted in Nature set.   Facted Dots and Linen Thread complete the card.

Celebrate

  

When I saw the Fab Friday color challenge, I just knew I wanted to do it.    It showcases all the fabulous new Incolors for this year and after some playing, I finally came up with a card that I absolutely love.   It also ended up working perfectly for the Paper Players challenge.   You need to check it out so many amazing prizes to be won.   

The new Incolors are Lovely Lipstick, Grapefruit Grove, Pineapple Punch, Color Me Clove and Blueberry Bushel.   I stamped the balloons fromt the Balloon Celebration stamp set.    I used a Sharpie and made my own balloon strings.     I die cut the Celebrate from the Celebrate You Frametlis.   Stacked with Love designer series paper completes the card.

  


Wonderful Moments

 
So I am loving the beautiful images in the Wonderful Moments stamp set.    I just love the bride.  I especially love that there is only a few things that need to be colored in and then the stamped image speaks for itself.    I pulled out the Copics and the Stampin' Blends.    The sentiment comes from the Flourishing Phrases.   Some Faceted Dots and Stacked with Love Designer Paper complete the card.  



You are Wonderful

  

Here is another card inspired by the layout in this week's Global Design Team's challenge and another entry to be considered for guest designer on the inspirational Global Design Team.  I die cut the floral from the Botanical Tags Framelits.  I heat embossed the sentiment from the Rooted in Nature stamp set.    Strips of designer series paper from Merry Little Christmas paper set and True Gentleman buttons complete the card. 


For the Bride




I am enjoying this week's Global Design Team's Project challenge.   We are casing the designer.   I am also hoping to be chosen as a guest designer for Global Design Team.  I would be honored to be part of these talented designers.  I decided to use the sketch as my inspiration for my card design.   I pulled out the beautiful Bride from the Wonderful Moments stamp set.    The bride was colored in my Copics and Stampin' Blends.    The sentiment was heat embossed.   A strip of designer series paper from Stacked with Love and facted dots complete the card.
