Hello and welcome to my first blog hop with Stamp n Hop. You may have hopped from Cheryl and her inspiring blog. If you haven’t visited me before, I live in a rural village in the UK. This month we are showcasing our favourite Designer Series Paper (DSP).
I have to hold my hands up and confess that I haven’t really looked beyond my favourite DSP, which is Share What You Love Specialty DSP. I love the colours, patterns and the pearlescent sheen which makes every project so much more special. In this set you get 24 sheets (4 of each 6 double sided designs). I will however be looking at the selected DSP which is on special offer this month (Buy 3 Get 1 Free-See below for more details). Please note the Share What You Love DSP is not included in this offer but there are some equally lovely papers which I;m sure you will agree.
I thought I would showcase a 12 x 12 Scrapbook page which I have been working on to celebrate my Mum’s 80th Birthday on 19th July which is why there isn’t a photo or jounaling. Blackberry Bliss and Old Olive card stock have been mat and layered along with a sheet of the DSP (which has been cut slightly smaller). Using an old template I cut a shaped piece of card but only applied adhesive to the ends so I can slip the photo in when I am ready.
Letters for You were stamped with Blackberry Bliss ink on Whisper White Card and the die cut out with the Large Latter Framelits. I also cut the letters out in Old Olive card to make a shadow look. Basic Pearls were place on the letters to make it look like a banner.
When I started writing this this hop I didn’t realise that Mum would be having major surgery two days before her birthday and would therefore be still be in Hospital for her big day. Because of this I folded some of the lovely velvet ribbon in Rich Razzleberry into a support ribbon tied with bakers twine from the embellishment kit.
The Share what you love embellishment kit comes in a lovely presentation box and includes silver roses, bakers twine, paper clips and labels which I have used on my layout plus so much more. I also added some Artisan Pearls to the label which will be used for the journaling.
Below is a closer look at the patterns.
If you haven’t tried scrapbooking then I suggest you give it a try as it is so important to keep your memories alive in decorative albums rather than stored on your electronic device.
