Stampin' Up! Botanical Butterfly Saleabration DSP Scrapbook Page

Hello there stamping and memory keeping friends.

Today I have a Stampin' Up! scrapbook page for you using our 2019 Saleabration DSP, Botanical Butterfly. We have started a new monthly scrapbook challenge in my Art with Heart Team forum. The challenges are coordinated by a very talented scrapbooker in our team, Sharen Sutherland. Sharen lives in and runs classes in Mount Gambier West in South Australia. Sharen unfortunately does not have a blog (YET)  but you can contact her HERE if you are interested in attending any of her classes or retreats.

Sharen set this challenge for us to be inspired by or case in some way during February. Here was her layout to get us started. Isn't it great?

I love Sharen's use of Brusho on her circles, but I didn't feel like getting too messy the day I was scrapbooking, so I used the Botanical Butterfly DSP from Saleabration 2019 instead. This precious photo is of my Mum and I at Christmas 2018 in Perth. It makes me happy that I have scrapbooked it.

I've added in lots of little die cut bits and pieces from the Well Written Framelits set - how cute are those little birds? I have used Sahara Sand cardstock so as not to overwhelm the photo. In between my punched circles I have done some stamping using the bokeh stamp in the Beauty Abounds stamp set.

For my journaling, I used my favourite strip journaling. I find it always very important to include a few words with each memory I scrapbook. The main journaling is beneath the photo, but here's a snippet at the side. When you are setting up your strip journaling, I find it helpful to double space the lines to give you extra cutting space.

Week 26 AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop - Lovely Lipstick

Colour Creations 300

Lovely Lipstick

This week the Colour Creations girls on the Art With Heart team are playing with Lovely Lipstick. This is such a bright happy colour, and one of our 2018-20 InColours. I ha lots of fun playing with this colour this week, and I have 3 projects for you.

My first project is a 12x12" scrapbook page of the leaders in my team at our Centre Stage leaders dinner and training a couple of weeks ago. The big 30 was actually part of our table decoration and the lovely postcard at the top came from the hotel I was staying at. I love incorporating memorabilia like this into my pages. I have incorporated Lovely Lipstick, by using several of the 'coming soon' Happiness Blooms Memories & More cards, which will be available in the 2019 Occasions Catalogue. I love the bright colours and bold patterns in this card set and it's bright colour combination.

My second project again features cards from the Happiness Blooms Memories and More card pack, as well as the coordinating cards and envelopes (also coming in the Occasions Catalogue). I just cut three strips from two different cards (each strip was 10cm x 5cm) and arranged them on the card front. You can't see it in the photo, but the top and bottom panel are from one of the specialty cards so it has subtle texture as well. My greeting was from Butterfly Gala, a new stamp set coming soon. I embossed it in white onto Night of Navy cardstock, and cut it out with the Lovely Label punch.

My final project, is a 6x8 pocket scrapbooking page. I used the Happiness Blooms Memories and More card pack here too. This was such a happy moment from Convention. Jennifer Frost (left) and Rochelle Blok (right) are talented stampers and both such lovely kind and giving people. I had chatted to Rochelle a little in the past, as we have a mutual friend. Jennifer and I often comment on each others work on Instagram and I really admire her giving nature (and her amazing talent). Believe it or not I am little shy when it comes to meeting new people, but Jennifer came and found me at OnStage and it turns out she was feeling the same. Such a lovely moment which needed a story and a page!

'I am' - a traditional scrapbooking layout using (mostly) Stampin' Up! products.

Lately, scrapbooking has been loudly calling me again. I dabble / have dabbled in pocket pages, but my heart belongs to traditional 12 x 12 pages.  

My eldest son snapped this photo of me earlier in the year, and it seemed the perfect photo to get a little grungy with inks and textures. 

 

Stampin' Up! traditional layout using texture paste, Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

Here's the process (I should have used Gesso to seal the page which would have prevented the warping. I was out, so I went head, but will do that next time. It's flattened out fine now though). Bolded words refer to products which are linked to my online store at the end of the page.

  • My base cardstock is Smoky Slate 12x12 Stampin' Up! cardstock.. This one must have been left over from a couple of years ago as it is textured. We have the smooth now which would be fine to use too.
  • I pencilled in approximately where I wanted my picture to go, and then used Silver Embossing Paste with the Palette Knives and brick mask in the Pattern Party Decorative masks. I wasn't particularly worried to get it flat and didn't even fully cover the mask, as I wanted a grungy, random effect with the bricks.
  • I left that to completely dry, and then randomly applied Jet Black Stazon ink direct from the ink pad to dirty the brick texture up a bit.
  • My 5x7" photo is on a mat of Berry Burst A4 cardstock. I've used some of the Pick a Pattern Washi Tape (love the versatility of varying widths of tape in this 5 roll set) to frame the picture at the top and bottom.
  • I've stamped some of the great textures in Timeless Textures stamp set in various spots on my page (I used Memento Black stamped off once). This set is really versatile for scraobooking. Other embellishments  are some Mint Macaron brads (from the Basics Brads set) and Berry Burst punched arrowheads from a retired punch.
  • My title was made using some letters in my stash, as I really wanted to pick up the blue in the photo and they were perfect.

Before I get onto my journaling, here are some close ups.

Then this one (which makes me want to jump into the screen and push that wash tape down properly!).

Here's a closer look at the Timeless Textures stamp set and the Pattern Party Decorative Masks.

This all about me page was just about random journalling about who I am, right now. That's not a number or a measurement. Everyone needs to do this kind of journaling. It's so good for the soul. Even if it's just scribbled onto the back of a cafe napkin, just for your eyes. I think all about me pages are one of my favourite types of pages. I used the very cool Swirly Frames stamo set (PERFECT for scrapbooking and great for cards too) for my circular journaling piece. My actual journaling was a compination of my own handwriting (using the Journalling Pens), with the occasional stamped (in Memento Black) word from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set.

I hope you have enjoyed this little peek into my scrapbooking process and favourite products. Hope you get to record some memories of your own soon.

See you back here again tomorrow night,

Art with Heart October Team Blog Hop: Patterned Paper

Today it's time for out Art with Heart team monthly blog hop. 

21762378_10156498961783840_1973839951737692518_o

Tonight the Art with Heart team girls are sharing some wonderful ideas to inspire you with our Designer Series Papers. This month is the start of the new Stampin’ Up! year and we have a special promotion on our Designer Series Paper, buy 3 get 1 FREE for the month of October and there is no limit!

Today I am showcasing the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper, which is just beautiful. I have made a card and a double page scrapbook layout using the papers. Lets start with the card.

The sunflower paper is probably my favourite sheet in the 12 double sided paper pack. I love the colours in it, and it coordinates well with the Painted Harvest stamp set. I have used the three leaf stamp (coordinates with the new Leaf Punch too) for some extra foliage. My other flower is just cut from the patterned paper. My greeting is from Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp Set and is stamped on Early Espresso onto a Very Vanilla circle cut from the Stitched Shape Framelit.

This picture shows some additional texture I added with the burlap ribbon and gold mini sequin trim.

Next up we have the double 12x12 traditional scrapbook page. This paper is amazing for nature photos and as it has the colours of the sky and plants and flowers in it. Some of the papers in this pack are definitely great for base pages as well, then you have all the other coordinating papers to embellish (I just used a total of three of the patterns in this page).

This was a memory I definitely wanted to record. Our first visit back to Marysville since the town was wiped out and many people died in the 2009 bushfires. It was great to see the town was rebuilding and to see the beautiful statue in the park about new beginnings.

I wanted to show you some ways I have used the Merry Little Christmas Memories and More pocket scrapbook card pack from the Holiday Catalogue. This is a pack of 72 double sided pocket scrapbook cards (52 3x4" and 20 6x4"). The pack also includes 2 sticker sheets and 4 acetate overlay cards, all for just $17.50. The colours are Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, kraft, Lemon Lime Twist, Old Olive and Whisper White. 

First up, I have used them in some traditional pocket scrapbooking, The sticker sheets are great for adding extra embellishment to photos (I love using words especially) and the colours are great for Christmas photos.

Cards 1

You can also use the cards in 12 x 12 scrapbook layouts, either as journaling cards, or also as embellishments by cutting up the bits you need. I have used a card for the title, journaling and also the Lemon Lime Twist patterned circle top right on this layout. I've also used some of the beautiful Merry Music Designer Series Paper.

Card 2

Card 3

Finally, I have used one of the 3x4 cards on a Christmas card. I really liked this card with the multicolour baubles and it was easy to coordinate the cardstock and embellishment colours. 

Card 7

I've also used a couple of other Holiday Catalogue products on this card, including the Foil Snowflakes and Year of Cheer Embellishments.

Card 6

Now it's time to visit my lovely team member Ros Davidson to see the fabulous Holiday Catalogue creations she has put together for us.
