Welcome to the Embossing themed Ink and Share Scrapbook Blog Hop. This could be dry embossing, embossing powder or even embossing paste, it’s demonstrators’ choice! 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 Sharon Dalton’s blog. She had a great layout!

My project started with the skating snowpeeps from the Spirited Snowmen stamp set.

Glossy paper that was processed through the Big Shot with Swirls and Curls embossing folder creates photo mats on Balmy Blue cardstock. Add a flurry of glossy paper snowflakes created from the Winter Blizzard framelit throughout the layout.

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!

Ink and Share Blog Hop Mini Treat Bag

28059369_10155813494401140_2143749391452299936_n

Welcome to our Ink and Share Blog Hop featuring projects made with Stampin’ Up! products designed by fellow Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators. This hop spotlights the Occasions catalog. If you are hopping around, you have arrived from Kirsten’s blog and her fabulous project. My hop design is below.

I decided to use the Painted with Love Specialty designer series paper (dsp) to create a party favor using the mini treat bag thinlets. The heavy weight dsp make it a good option to create 3-D items.

Close up of the belly band and the fab rich razzleberry heart and “enjoy” accents that were cut using the mini treat bag thinlet set. The gold foil strip is 1 inch wide cut from our 12×12 inch gold foil sheets. See the next photo for an economy gold foil bow tip.

4 2018occasionsbloghop4-001

There are gold accents on the opposite side of the polka dot print dsp that I used to decorate the narrow note card. I positioned the bow thinlet over the gold foil. Then realized I could cover up the bow hole with a rich razzleberry heart. No one will know but you and me:)

4 2018occasionsbloghop2-001

The Painted with Love dsp and the narrow note cards and envelopes are on page 19 of the Occasions catalog. A hot chocolate packet nicely fits inside the mini treat bag. I delivered these to staff this week at a senior living community I visit. They were tickled that I took the time to create these and hand deliver them with thanks for making it possible for me to visit the community.
