Ink and Share Scrapbook Blog Hop

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 Rhonda Waechter’s blog. She had a great layout!

We are featuring a sketch challenge as shown below for this month. This is the starting point to design our pages. The Halloween printed Toil and Trouble designer series paper (dsp) is perfect for this sketch because there are many patterns of repetitive images to use for the vertical strip.

I decided to document how much my family loves Halloween! I’ll create a coordinating layout once I get a photo of the spooky house that was the first Halloween decoration my parents had. Mom has not decorated her house for Halloween this year yet. So I’ll snap the photo once it is set out and share the coordinating layout when it is created.

The fun and bright Halloween palettes of recent years includes purples so this holiday is among my favorites. The Toil and Trouble designer series paper is FABULOUS this year. I ordered several packages to share at upcoming events.

For this layout, I fussy cut the witches from the dsp to represent my Mom, my sister Wendy and Me. The cauldron shape was the perfect size for documenting why we love Halloween. They were cut from the Cauldron framelits.

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…

8 9 18 sbkbh1-001

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.

8 9 18 sbkbh2-001

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.

8 9 18 sbkbh3-001

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.

8 9 18 sbkbh4-001

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!

You might be a scrapbooking foodie if…

you color coordinate your kombucha to your scrapbook layout! Look at this gorgeous lemon lime twist colored NessAlla kombucha logo and the bermuda bay colored sticker towards the bottom…

2 2018odbloghop6-001

Both of these colors are featured in the Bubbles and Fizz designer series paper. So it was destiny that I scrapbook my kombucha journey. The NessAlla stickers are the perfect memorabilia since they are flat and won’t add much thickness to the page.

2 2018odbloghop3-001

I just need to add my favorite NessAlla flavors, my home brewing observations, the SCOBY drive thru story. You know, the journaling part that gets done later.2 2018odbloghop4-001

side by side, 12×12 inch layouts with the brew that inspired it!

2 2018odbloghop1-001

Can you see the different basic black mat widths around the edges? The one on the left has a 1/4 inch mat. The one on the right has a 1/2 inch mat. I’ll have to walk around the layout a few more days to decide which mat I like. Nothing is taped down yet so I can make some adjustments and add more journaling space if needed. It usually takes a few days for a layout to be finished for me. I’ll pull out all the supplies I want to use and make a rough design. After a few days of walking around the layout and making adjustments, I can declare it is done!

Supplies used:

12×12 basic black cardstock for the base layer (matches the popped bubbles on the dsp)

Bubbles and Fizz designer series paper which is earned free with a $50 Sale-A-Bration order

lemon lime twist, bermuda bay, calypso coral (on the assorted sized bubbles) cardstock

whisper white cardstock

Bottles and Bubbles framelits

Stitched Shapes framelits

All paper crafting supplies can be ordered at my online store here.

To find NessAlla kombucha near you, visit their website here for locations. They have tappers at Willy Street Co-op in the Madison area which makes it convenient to reuse their bottles.

Are you a scrapbooking foodie? Add a comment if you are and what your favorite foodie adventure is that you scrapbooked.

And yes, lemongrass ginger is my favorite flavor followed by hibiscus cardamom ginger when I am feeling I need a little red spice in my life.

Until next time,

Super Awesome Scrapbooker Shirley
