Your Creative Connection 103: Stampin' Up! Parisian Blossoms Scrapbook Layout

600 pixelsToday my global Your Creative Connection ladies are choosing their favourite suite of products to play with. I have chosen the lovely Parisian Blossom product suite from the 2020 January to June Mini Catalogue. I have used products in this suite to complete a double scrapbook page to document highlights of 5 nights in Paris. (Eagle eyed readers will note I have appeared to travel forward in time with the dates - ooops! Have since corrected, but the original photos were taken in the best light, so I am using these).

Highlights pages are a great way to get a whole bunch of photos into a layout. My Stampin' Up! mini guillotine (FREE in the Starter Kit as part of the awesome Saleabration joining deal on until the end of March) was perfect to be able to trim my photos so I only got the bits that told my story, and created variation in my layout.

I started with two 12x12" Petal Pink cardstock sheets. I placed a 3x12" strip of  Parisian Blossoms Designer Series Paper towards the top and bottom of each page. I then arranged the pictures over the 2 pages, with a couple of highlight photos on a Cherry Cobbler mat (Cherry Cobbler, Pool Party and Petal Pink are the three coordinating colours for this DSP).

I have used stamped images and die cuts from the Parisian Beauty bundle to embellish my page. The quotes were stamped from the Parisian Beauty stamp set onto some of the DSP and cut out with Rectangle Stitched dies. The quotes in this stamp set are perfect for travel pages.

I have used strip journaling (created using my computer), to label each highlight, and to add some additional text to my title.

To finish off the layout, I have used the Hand Lettered Prose dies to cut Pool Party letters for my title (oops again about the date!), and embossed the letters using the Subtle embossing folder for some added texture.

Of course this Parisian Blossoms suite is also perfect for card making. Here's a card I made earlier in the year using this suite.
