Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia. We have a wide array of fun Happy Birthday projects and design styles to share with you. You may have arrived from Joy’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

The Hooray to You stamp set has this fabulously large image with coordinating smaller images which makes for a quick card. Use our Stampin’ Write markers to color the flowers to match the patterned paper. Two overlapping Classic Label punches add a bit of interest.

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…

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.

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!

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,

Painted Harvest framed with Stitched Shapes

10 27 2017sunflowerbirthday-001

The Painted Harvest stamp set makes creating multi colored flowers with depth easy with the 2 step stamps. The stitched shapes framelits layered in very vanilla and calypso coral make the flower the focal point. Our burlap ribbon and a bow bring the eye to the sentiment and invite the reader to open the greeting card where the layered leaves embossing can be really appreciated.

Here are samples created by home office concept artists.
