Scrapbook Blog Hop - April

Good Morning All, 

It's that time again for another scrapbook Sunday blog hop with many Stampin' Up! demonstrators from across the globe. It's lovely to see you here & I hope you enjoy seeing all the inspiration by clicking on the hop links below this post. 

This month we have a colour challenge of: 

I had to go & look through some of my pages already as my parents are currently up so had a lovely day at a flower show yesterday so will show you those photos in a future scrapbook hop. I hope you enjoy this scrapbook page that is from our holiday to the Lake District almost 2 years ago! It was a glorious day after finding out that Brexit had happened here in the UK. Anyway enough of my waffling here is what I created: 

I use the 'Remarkable You' stamp set to create the big leaves & then used my blender pen to shade in, I've also used 'Jars of Love' for some more foliage & the 'Playful Backgrounds' in Bermuda Bay I think!! On Soft Sky 12x12 - this colour is going, but I'm so glad that 12x12 card stock is returning to all colour families again & not just 'best of.' 

Thanks for joining me & I hope you enjoy hopping round from the below list,

Go For Greece Blog Hop - March 2018

Evening all,

Hope you are well.

I'm popping by on a blog hop with the amazing 'Go For Greece' training group. Since October I've been part of an awesome training programme to gain knowledge & in site in how to achieve the incentive trip that Stampin' Up! has to offer.

Kylie Bertucci gives some amazing training to demonstrators world wide! I've been part of some other groups that has been started by her like 'Random Acts of Kindness' where cards go to random people within the group from all over the world. I've recently been in the amazing 'Love it Chop it' group where you learn to cut that paper you have around the house!! haha! Well I was inspired to cut some paper in preparation for the 'Onstage event' that Stampin' Up! run for demonstrators & so this is what I created:

Do you ever go through phases of using paper? I sometimes get so excited about using stamp sets that I sometimes forget about the paper. But then I'm also a scrapbooker & so the thought of cutting 12x12 does scare me sometimes as I think about the pictures I could maybe put on the page. Sometimes you've just got to get over that hurdle & do it!! Here is a close up:


I love layering the 2" circle punch with the starburst punch, I used so saffron paired with pool party & inked the sentiment with dapper denim. I then added a little bit of very vanilla trim which gives this swap some texture, here is the other colour combo: 

I was inspired to take part in this week's Just Add Ink challenge: 
I hope you've enjoyed what you've seen here & don't forget to check out the others involved in this amazing hop in the below list. For some people this is the first blog hop they are part of so don't forget to leave them a comment so they feel the love :D

See you soon,

Scrapbook Blog Hop - March

Good Morning from a snowy Bristol in the UK, if you've been hopping through the lovely inspiration, wasn't Jenny Hall's page stunning :D but if you are starting here then hello. Every 3rd Sunday of the month a group of us take part in showing a scrapbook page, this could be from a sketch, colour or a special theme. This month's challenge is a sketch, which is here:

I loved to be challenged, as I don't tend to do that many pages with just 1 photo, I love taking lots of pictures on my phone when out & about, but I really loved this photo of me & my boyfriend & couldn't resist making a page with it, so take a look: 

I used the lovely Brusho to make the smoky slate card-stock not look so plain & incorporated some of the colours from the papers. Using all of the brusho colours a part from the green. Even though the blue & yellow make it look like I have haha! Here is a close up: 

I really wanted to use the amazing thinlit die from the 'Celebrate You' Sale-A-Bration freebie & loved using some of the stamps from the coordinating stamp set, I also used some of the sentiments from the 'Oh so Eclectic' stamp set & it really worked. Here is a better pic: 

The flower is from the Petal Passion suite with the stamp & coordinating die, I stamped with memento & then coloured with the Stampin' Blends which are the lovely alcohol markers that we sell. 

Thanks for stopping by & remember to take a look at everyone's lovely creations from all over the world :) by following the links below.

Scrapbook Sunday Blog Hop - February

Hey! Welcome to this month's Scrapbook Sunday Blog Hop. I hope you've all had a great month & keeping well. If you've joined my from Cathy Caines blog - wasn't her page amazing! It's lovely to see you here, if you've landed straight on mine - Hey! There is 14 of us taking part in a hop - links to everyones blogs is at the bottom of this post, or if you hit the Next button you can go through all the blogs until you come back to mine. This month we have a theme challenge to scrap:  

I have to say I'm not a big love heart person :O so I decided to go down the what do I love route! I love my boyfriend, but I also love my bestie & Hot Air Balloons, so this is what I'm going to show you: 

Back in the summer last year I got some lovely lens that I can click onto my phone, so we had some fun taking pics with them as you can see. Here is some close ups: 

Every year in Bristol there is a Balloon Fiesta & we went early ready for an evening ascent - this didn't happen as it was pretty windy for the Balloon's to take off. So then we stuck around for the evening night glow, I'll show those pics another time! Enjoyed using the Fish Eye lens to take these pics: 

I used the Thoughtful Banners stamp set to create the words for the background of this page, the perfect days memories & more where I then added some Embossing paste which I then added some ink from Berry Burst & Island Indigo re-inkers. The lovely friends sentiment is from the Just Add Ink stamp set inked on the Pretty Label punch, then mounted on the starburst punch.
