Welcome to another Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop and this time we have a Scrapbook Sketch Challenge.

Scrapbook Sketch Challenge

Scrapbook Sketch Challenge

Tip: Make sure your layouts feature some of your own handwriting as it’s also a memory worth preserving for future generations. Use the Journaling Pens.

Scrapbook Sketch Challenge

Tip: Sketches can often be a great launching point when your ‘mojo’ or creative juices aren’t flowing. You don’t have to use them as they are, change them to suit your photo and supplies

Scrapbook Sketch Challenge

I don’t have the stamp set and punch which goes with this gorgeous Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper, however, I have used other Stampin’ Up! product to compliment what I do have.

Scrapbook Sketch Challenge Basics

More Basics

Tip: Label the black piece of card and adhere the D.S.P. to the other side. That way you can still see where each piece needs to be placed on the layout.

Tip: Die cut the narrowest Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies and then place the piece in again to the correct length, holding it in place with some post-it notes. This will give you a perfectly Stitched Rectangle for the date

I’m sharing another idea for using Butterfly Gala Photopolymer Bundle and Gingham Gala 6″ X 6″ (15.2 X 15.2 Cm) Designer Series Paper with Gingham Butterfly. It’s an easy card and doesn’t take long to replicate or change to suit your needs.

Gingham Butterfly

Gingham Butterfly

Tip: Use either a Journaling Pens or a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker to add extra stripes or checks to your Gingham Gala 6″ X 6″ (15.2 X 15.2 Cm) Designer Series Paper. This adds a little depth and dimension to your project.

Gingham Butterfly

Tip: Tie your extra stripes or checks into your project by using Basic Black A4 Card Stock and Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad along with Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine.

Gingham Butterfly

Use the body of each of the butterflies if you want to but I’m not very good at lining them up.

Tip: Adhere 1 large and 1 small butterfly together and place a Metallics Sequin Assortment in the centre of the bodies. Use Liquid Multipurpose Glue

Gingham Butterfly

Stamp the butterflies in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad, then for the large butterfly stamp off (2ng generation stamping) in Highland Heather Classic Stampin’ Pad and for the small butterfly stamp full strength in Highland Heather Classic Stampin’ Pad.

This project takes us back to when the Annual Catalogue launched and all of the wonderful projects possible with the Share What You Love Suite. Check it out HERE

Show Your Heart Blog Hop Jan

For this card, I used the Soft Sayings Card Kit and Love What You Do Photopolymer Stamp Set. The inks I used Rich Razzleberry Classic Stampin’ PadMint Macaron Classic Stampin’ PadGrapefruit Grove Classic Stampin’ PadBalmy Blue Classic Stampin’ Pad and Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad.

Tip: When you buy a kit, you often receive or buy the coordinating stamp set. Make sure you utilise the stamp set in all your other paper craft projects

Show Your Heart Blog Hop Jan

Use the elements from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit to add interest and dimension to your card.

Tip: Sponge Daubers are great for colouring. Make sure you remember to use them

Tip: Ink up your Sponge Daubers and then use scrap paper to remove some of the ink. Light pressure is best. You can always add colour.

Tip: Use embellishments to hide areas which may have too much colour.

HeartKids is the only charity focused on funding the research, information and care that provide constant support for children, families and adults from diagnosis all the way throughout their life journey with CHD.

Show Your Heart Blog Hop Jan Basics

Tip: Lightly spritzing one side of the card before running it through the Big Shot with a Dynamic Textured Impressions Folder, helps prevent creasing and warping of your card. It softens the fibres and allows a better image impression.

I had the frame which had the glass broken in our move last year. I kept the frame hoping it would come in handy for a piece of home decor. So, I decided to use it for the project today.

I measured the backing board which came with the frame and cut the Shimmery White A4 Card Stock and adhered it with SNAIL Permanent Adhesive

Tip: If you use SNAIL Permanent Adhesive and want to change what you have in the frame, just apply a little heat and the base piece will come straight off ready for the next project.

Now watch the video and see how I used the Sponge Daubers and the Shimmer Paint to create these beautiful butterflies

Sharing a card today which I made a little while ago. A Friend Like You is made using the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper and Love What You Do Photopolymer Stamp Set. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.

A Friend Like You

A Friend Like You

Tip: Use the Layering Circle Framelits Dies to create your ‘closure’. Add it to one side of the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals

A Friend Like You

Tip: Designer Series paper has two sides. The Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper is particularly well suited to stamping. Use a complimentary colour or Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad

A Friend Like You

Tip: Use up odd shaped pieces of your Designer Series Paper to decorate the flap of the Whisper White C6 Envelopes. Use a thin bead of Liquid Multipurpose Glue around the flap and adhere the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper, then when it’s dry use your Paper Snips Scissors to trim close to the edge of the flap

For this Baker’s Box, I have used the Butterfly Gala Photopolymer BundleBotanical Butterfly Designer Series PaperOrgandy Ribbon Combo Pack and Baker’s Boxes

TipBaker’s Boxes can be used for many purposes:

  • Baked goods
  • Muffins
  • Cupcakes
  • 10 cm x 10 cm or 4″ x 4″ gift cards
  • Many other gifts

ESAD 2019 Occasions Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop

Tip: Tie a multiloop bow from the Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack to enhance the look of your box.

Tie: the Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack around the box and finish with a flat know (right over left and under, left over right and under). Tie your multiloop bow and adhere to the original knot with Glue Dots.

ESAD 2019 Occasions Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop

Tip: Tie your original reef knot on the edge of the box. I find this allows you to get a tighter knot

ESAD 2019 Occasions Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop

Tip: Use all the natural shades in the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper and this will tie in with the colours used in the butterflies.

ESAD 2019 Occasions Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop

Cut the back piece of Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper to 10.7 cm x 2.5 cm or 4 1/4″ x 1″ and adhere to the back part of the box with Liquid Multipurpose Glue.

Tip: By cutting a separate piece of Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper for the back, you allow the Baker’s Boxes to open fully to reveal the goodies inside.
