Scrapbooking Global - February 2019 Blog Hop

Welcome to February's Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop. This months theme is Love and Marriage. Eimear Carvill is the guest designer and chose our theme for the month. Be sure to hop through all the blogs so you don't miss out on the wonderful scrapbook inspiration!

I am so happy to see that there are so many people using Stampin' Up! products on their scrapbook layouts! If you are a scrapbooker be sure to join the Scrapbooking Global - Stampin' Up! Facebook Group. There's been a ton of inspiration posted there lately.

This is a photo of my husband and I when we were in Santorini in 2016. I love how so many of the greetings from the Well Said stamp set worked with this layout. We are headed back to Santorini this summer and hope to hit up this same cafe (7 Steps) where we enjoyed the BEST view and the most delicious cappuccino.

I used my current favourite products - the Painted Seasons Bundle (free with $120 purchase). The dsp is the background and punched circles. I added a bit of stitching to give it more of a grid type look. Then used the coordinating stamps to add some embellishments. I love this dsp so much! I've included a full list of supplies that I used at the bottom of this post.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to continue through the blogs and check out what everyone else has created.

Here's the list of participants. Click on any of the names to take you to their post.

My newest scrapbook class - the How Sweet It Is Scrapbook Class is still open for registration. You have the option of attending in person, getting it to go or purchasing the tutorial (this is a great option for anyone outside of Canada). You can find one of the layouts we'll be creating and all the details here.

Have a creative day!

Sweet Smile Layout using Stampin' Up!'s How Sweet It Is Suite

It's a long weekend here in Alberta and I'm enjoying another day of not having to run kids around. I've gotten so much accomplished it's wonderful! It's amazing how much you can do when you don't have to be chauffeur:)

Today I'm sharing one of the layouts we'll be creating in my How Sweet It Is Scrapbook Class. If you'd like to get in on this class (in person or to go), you can find all the information here. The tutorial only option is now available for anyone outside Canada. You'll find it on my tutorial page.

I LOVE how this page turned out! I was inspired by a layout that @moriony shared on Instagram. I just can't seem to get enough of this suite of products. It's just so fun and makes me smile!

Sorry for the quick post but we've got a busy day ahead. Have a creative day!

Painted Seasons Bundle and Stampin' Up!'s 2nd Release SAB Products

Well we are half way through Sale-a-Bration which means that Stampin' Up! has added a few new Sale-a-Bration products! There are three to choose from:

The All Adorned stamp set (149728) - free with a $60 purchase.

The Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (149698) - 
free with a $60 purchase.

And my favourite - the Painted Seasons Bundle (150349) - free with $120 purchase.

Today on my Facebook live we played with the Painted Seasons bundle and I shared how beautifully these stamps stamp and a few different ways to add color to the images. The replay is posted towards the end of the post. 

I created a version of this card in the video. There were a couple slight alterations but the same basic layout.

This bundle is meant to be used all year round in any season. I also shared these 4 cards I created, one of which we created yesterday at my monthly stamp class.

A spring birthday card.

A sympathy card using the more florally/summery dsp.

A fall thank you card. I LOVE this mushroom dsp!

And a Christmas card.

As you can see I kept the layout the same and just altered the stamped images and greetings. Coming up with a design takes the longest when it comes to crafting so why not use the same layout and make slight adjustments to create a variety of cards!

If you'd like to watch the replay, here it is:

Have a creative weekend!

Botanical Butterfly Sampler

We did something a little different at our last team meeting - we created this beautiful spring sampler. I was really hoping that if everyone was focused on some spring crafting that maybe we'd be graced with some spring weather. Hasn't happened:( And none in the foreseeable future! But why worry about something we have no control over right?!

This beautiful sampler was inspired by several samplers that I saw on Pinterest. I created using the free botanical butterfly dsp, the free butterfly elements, the butterfly gala bundle and the beauty abounds stamp set. I just love the spring feel.

These are such great things to make, anyone can make them, using anything! It can then be framed and used as home decor, or you can add a photo and add it to your scrapbook album. I'm playing with the Painted Seasons bundle right now and am thinking it would also make a great sampler...

Stamp Cafe registration closes in a few days! Have you saved your spot for the event yet? Only a few days left to register!

Have a creative day!
