Stampin' Up! 12x12 Travel Scrapbook Layout using World of Good Product Suite

Hello there.

Something completely different for you today, a scrapbook page! I am beginning to scrapbook my trip my few days in Rome before the Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip last year and wanted a 12x12 cover page. I'll probably do most of the pages with pocket scrapbooking and the World of Good Memories and More card pack, but I like to do some 12x12 pages in there too, as a cover and some special photos.

As I wanted to print certain parts of the photo and get the full height if the beautiful Trevi fountain in, I cropped my photo in Photoshop, and then printed at home. I have a Canon Pixma A4 printer (mine is a TS8160) and I use genuine Canon Photo Paper (I love the Canon Photo Paper Plus Semi  Gloss) and genuine Canon inks, and I am really happy with the printing results I get. Very handy too as Melbourne (Australia) where I live just went into another 6 week lockdown to get the second wave of this horrible Covid-19 Virus under control.

The World of Good product suite is PERFECT for travel scrapbooking, and especially ancient Rome as it has all the beautiful rich earthy colours of ancient ruins and old buildings.

With our new adhesive foam sheets, and Playful Alphabet dies (links at end of post), it's easy to make colour coordinated dimensional letters for your scrapbook titles. The letters are about 3/4" high, which is a great size. You just peel the backing paper off one side of the adhesive foam, attach a strip of whatever colour you are using (I used the Brass foil sheets) and cut the alphabet like normal in your die cutting machine. They cut like butter. Just peel the backing sheet off the other side and adhere to your page. Easy! The word 'adventure' is from the Sweet Silhouettes dies.

Playful Alphabet dies Stampin Up plus foam sheet = make your own dimensional alphabet. Buy online via my Australian online store.

I've added some tone on tone stamping to the base Crumb Cake 12x12 cardstock (from the neutrals 12x12 pack) using one of my very favourite vintage sets, Very Versailles. I have also popped on some of the Artistry Blooms sequins, which include a variety of colours. I found the Calypso Coral a great match for this product suite.

To balance the page I included a quote (die cut with the layering circle dies) from the World of Good Memories and More cards. I added in some more sequins, a cardstock sticker from the same card pack and a strip of coordinating DSP. As this was a cover page, it didnt need much journalling. I just added the dates and a note that it was before the 2019 Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip.

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.

Stampin Up mini guillotine

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.

Greek Island s 6x8" Travel Scrapbooking Album video flip through.

Make a 6x8" Cruise / Travel Scrapbook Album: My Greek Isles Trip Album

Memory Keeping is my first love, and I really enjoy making scrapbook pages or albums about places I have visited. In July this year, I was lucky enough to go on a 7 day cruise around the Greek Islands from Rome. Here's how I scrapbooked my trip in a 6x8" pocket album. I started with these Stampin' Up! memory keeping products:

I used  a combination of 6"x 8", 6"x 4" and 3" x 4" photos. I printed all my photos at the Officeworks self serve kiosk (for my 3x4" photos I had already cropped them to size and saved them side by side on a 6x4" background using Photoshop). Other options would include just trimming 6x4" photos to size, printing yourself at home or persnickityprints.com also offer this smaller print size (based in US though).

When putting my album together I always start with the photos. I leave room for a cover page, and then I sort and place my photos in the album. For this album I divided it into:

  • pre trip & embarking
  • sea days, events days and Stampin' Up! people
  • each stop on the cruise (I started each section with a 6x8" photo and used Handwritten Prose Dies for a diecut letter title as shown in the photo below)
  • our last night at sea / disembarking / reflections

The next step was to include ephemera (scrapbookers terms for all the bits and pieces you collect), For this trip I had things like:

  • My Stampin' Up! name tag
  • Boarding passes
  • Tickets for day trips
  • Business cards from places we ate or shopped
  • Tags that were included on room gifts
  • Stampin' Up! trip guide
  • Tourist brochures (one of the ship layout, one of a tourist train)
  • A printout of my ship account

Next up I went through and added journaling and filler cards to fill the gaps. These were from the Come Sail Away Memories and More card pack (and a couple of scraps of the coordinating Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper. These were perfect for a cruise themed album.  On this photo below, you can see another thing I like to do on cruises for my scrapbooking albums. This is a photo of the cabin TV screen when it was on the navigational channel showing where the ship was positioned. Other things I photographed and included in the album were:

  • Departure gate to Rome from Dubai airport
  • Travel documents and passport
  • Cabin door and welcome signage
  • Lots of food and plant photos (my two loves)

On the journaling and filler cards, I either adhered typed journaling boxes made on my computer, punched out typed travel quotes or embellishments. I measured the journaling boxes to fit the shape of the space of each of the journaling boxes I had used. I don't always type my journaling, but chose to for this project and I do like how neat and tidy it looks (it's super important to also include your own handwriting in memory keeping projects though, which is why I often do that).

In some instances I have also typed strip journaling or small text boxes for photos. I have also used the cardstock stickers (included in the Memories and More pack) and metal trinkets for embellishing photos and journaling / filler cards.

For my album title page I have used a 6x8 photo, and some text which I cut from the Stampin' Up! travel guide for the trip. This is one of my favourite photos of the trip, looking down on the ship and tender boat from the island of Santorini.

I also decorated the outside of the album using the Night of Navy and Sahara Sand Bakers Twine, a metal trinket and some burlap trim. 

Stampin Up Travel Scrapbooking Album. 6x8" using Come Sail Away Memories and More Cards and pocket scrapbooking cards. By Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Melbourne Australia

Overall I have included 157 photos in my 6x8 album and they fit fine in the album as you can see here. The individual breakdown of photo size is:

  • 13 6x8" photos
  • 59 6x4" photos
  • 85 3x4" photos

Overall there are 39 6x8" pocket page protectors of various configurations. This also includes the cover page and a clear envelope at the end of the album where I have added a couple of brochures, the rest of the travel guide and the printout of the ship bill.

I had lots of enjoyment putting together these memories of this fabulous trip. A 6x8 album is a great size for a one week cruise. If you would like to put together your own album and have questions, contact me and I would be happy to answer your questions.

Later in the week I will post a video which flips through this album page by page, for a final look at this project.

Art With Heart Team October Blog Hop: Ways to use Stampin' Up! Embossing Folders

Art With Heart Stampin Up Team October Blog Hop Embossing Folders

Hey there. Welcome to another Art With Heart Blog Hop. This month we are featuring Stampin' Up's! versatile range of Embossing Folders. There are new Embossing Folders available in every Stampin' Up! catalogue and they are an inexpensive way of adding WOW! to your projects. Currently there are 24 different Embossing Folders in the range.

Tonight we plan on showing you lots of ideas on how to use these folders. My projects are using the Heirloom Frames Dies and coordinating embossing folders.

Woven Heirlooms Dies and Embossing Folders Stampin Up

I have used these products to create some faux wood antique photo frames, which I have used on a scrapbook page and a card. I love how they turned out and they were super easy to make.

Ian page 7

I used the woodgrain 12x12" paper in the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper. I adhered this onto some backing cardstock before I cut the frames.

Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper

The steps to make the frames are:

  1. Adhere the woodgrain DSP to the backing card.
  2. Cut the frames first using the dies.
  3. Place the cut dies in the embossing folders, paying particular attention to which parts you wanted raised. As these are 3D folders, I recommend using the 3D embossing plate (link at bottom of page) to give extra ooomph to the sandwich and a good impression.
  4. Remove the frames, and then sponge Early Espresso ink over the raised pieces, building up to the desired shade.

Now it's time to use the frames. My first project is a heritage style scrapbook page with some childhood photos of myself and my brother, who died 12 years ago. I love these photos, and I think he would forgive me for scrapbooking them in floral papers and pink, lol.

I have used more of the Pressed Petals DSP on the page (I adhered the backing page oto Crumb Cake cardstock, ditressing the edges and spongeing with Early Espresso ink), as well as some of the coordinating Pressed Petals specialty washi tape, metal Designer Elements and a page from the coordinating Pressed Petals journal (the pages are perforated so can be torn off and added to scrapbook pages or cards).  The die-cut 'Forever' word is from the Sweet Silhouettes die set (links below the post).

As an extra embellishment, I created a vintage looking daisy with the Medium Daisy Punch and some Very Vanilla cardstock, which I sponged with Rococo Rose ink and a touch of Early Espresso to age it a bit. Love those Perennial Essence floral centres to give a realistic look to the daisy.

How beautiful is that vintage washi tape from the Pressed Petals Designer Washi tape. I also added a few subtle butterflies around the page which were cut from the Pressed Petals DSP using the Butterfly Duet punch. Now I just need to add the journaling to my page.

My second project is a Christmas card, using the rectangle frame and Toile Christmas stamp set from the Holiday Catalogue.

I have watercoloured the images on our awesome Fluid 100 cotton watercolour paper. I've used Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso and Garden Green ink and an Aquapainter. I've added a couple of Garden Green die cut pieces from the Leaf punch. The backing piece of DSP is from Toile Tidings.

I hope you have enjoyed my projects today. Now it's time to leave the Yarra Valley region on the outskirts of Melbourne and visit the very clever Catherine Proctor in the Northern Beaches area of Sydney.
