Welcome to the Ink and Share Scrapbook Blog Hop. We are Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators showcasing our fabulous products on scrapbook pages. If you are on the hop trail, you may have arrived from Karen Pearmain’s blog. She had a great layout!

I decided to create a layout using my favorite color, Blackberry Bliss…

The Tranquil Textures designer series paper has a fun multi colored circle pattern so that was my starting point. The fresh fig circles had a darker outline which could be Blackberry Bliss tones.

I used 1 1/4, 1, 3/4 and 1/2 circle punches along with the largest circle from the Layering Circles Framelits to enhance the circle theme.

The Blackberry Bliss ink pad was applied directly to the whisper white cardstock to mimic the printed purple designer series paper also from the Tranquil Textures package.

I like to keep my scrapbook layouts pretty flat so I opted to extend the fresh fig finely woven ribbon beyond the paper mats.

The butterfly framelit from the Springtime Impressions package provides contrast.

This layout was inspired by a greeting card I designed as shown below. Scrapbook layouts are just larger greeting cards with spaces to tuck memories.

P.S. You may be wondering where the photos and journaling are. I usually add those later after I print a stack of photos. I’ll create another post when I get that done!
