Ink and Share Scrapbook Blog Hop Butterfly Gala


Welcome to the Ink and Share Scrapbook Blog Hop. We are Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators showcasing our fabulous products on scrapbook pages. Artistic license is the theme this month. Anything in the current annual catalog can be used to create our layouts. If you are on the hop trail, you may have arrived from Annette Ball’s blog. She had a great layout!

I highlighted the Magnolia Lane designer series paper along with the current butterfly stamp set and punch. Pretty Pink for background and photo mats makes this layout ideal for documenting vintage photos.

Paper Crafting Blog Bling Spotlight


I hope you are enjoying our Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop featuring BLING. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe are participating so we have a wide array of fun projects to share with you! You may have arrived from Sandra Robert’s blog where she lives in the UK. She had a fabulous project!

My project needed a little something off to the left of the focal point. I created mossy meadow leaves by repeatedly stamping an image over whisper white leaves. A self adhesive backed Designer Element adds interest to the Petal Pink bow.

all the supplies used…Wink of Stella Glitter Brush run over the flower petals would increase the wow factor too. Wink is hard to photograph because it has a light glimmer sheen.
