ESAD Designer Series Paper Blog Hop




Welcome to the ESAD Designer Series Paper Blog Hop,
today is all about featuring Stampin' Up!'s Gorgeous DSP
Great promotion on at the moment Buy 3 Get 1 FREE.
Have you taken advantage of it yet?


19 Members of ESAD are hopping today, what is ESAD you ask?
ESAD is Australian and New Zealand Demonstrators who are part of FB group.
I am sure that there will be some TRULY AMAZING creations...


I used Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper, 
it is created by Photographic floral designs.
These papers have marble designs, and textured appearance on the other side.
There is also trimmable elements which I have used as frames and
journalling card.


It matched my Daughter's Bridal Shower photos perfectly.
So I created a Double Page Layout...with lots of photos.
Here is the first page
 


I used Berry Burst as my base for my double page,
then used
Petal Pink and Mossy Meadow Cardstock
for the mats which complimented the Floral DSP.
 
Here is the 2nd page.
I had to use paper clips to hold the photo down to take the photo.



In the next photo you see how many photos I added to this page...
AND I even wrote some journalling!!!

Now the complete Double Page Layout...

I didn't use very much DSP BUT I sure love the range of Designer Series Papers
that were released in the latest annual catalogue

Up next is Kim Oliver, she is so creative and I cannot wait to see what she has designed.

Paper Adventures Blog Hop - Photo Inspiration


 Welcome to Paper Adventures Team Blog Hop
I was invited by the lovely Kelly Kent to be a guest designer this month.
So excited to be joining Kelly and her team for this HOP.
Kelly's team are
mostly from WA (Bunbury & Busselton), her team has grown over the past 5 years to what it is today...

Without further ado...This months hop is a photo inspiration.


My brain went into overdrive when I saw this photo,
Siobhan Fitzsimmons this photo is just STUNNING!!!!

Firstly I chose all the Stampin' Up! colours in the photo, who else thinks about
colours only by Stampin' Up! colour palette these days?
Poppy Parade, Flirty Flamingo, Calypso Coral, Petal Pink,
Mango Melody, So Saffron, Crushed Curry and Basic Black.
Have I missed any???




Starting with a piece of Delightfully Detailed Laser-cut Specialty Paper.
Isn't it just STUNNING? Love that it has whole sheets as well as
distinct patterns with beautiful designs.
So many ways to use this Vanilla or White sheets.
I have used a full sheet here on this layout
AND I have also created some cards with the other designs,
this card for Kelly's Birthday Blog Hop


I used Daubers in all the matching colours to colour in the design.
I started with the darkest colours first then started gently colouring the laser-cut paper
on a piece of Petal Pink Cardstock, sorry I forgot to take a progress picture.

I just held the piece over my cardstock trying not to move it too much - BUT you could Washi tape it down so it doesn't move as your are colouring with the daubers




When you remove the laser-cut paper you are left with the shadowed
piece of Petal Pink cardstock... So pretty RIGHT??


 
Save the laser-cut piece for the next card.
Next I chose to cut out the main larger flowers so that I pop them up on this piece 
 to add some dimension to the card. I popped the cardstock onto some black cardstock.
Then I cut those flowers slightly smaller so that you can see the black background
behind them...


Next I placed some Mini Stampin' Dimensionals behind the flowers
stuck them to the black background.
Next I grabbed some Whisper White Bakers Twine and used a Dauber to change
the white twine to Mango Melody twine.



 

Wrapped the twine around the card and made a separate bow to place on top.
 

Diecut 2 bees from Basic Black Cardstock with the Detailed Dragonfly  Thinlits Dies.
I added some Crushed Curry behind the body of the bee and added dimensionals between
the 2 sets of wings to make it more life like.

Next I added 2 more mats on my card behind the black
Flirty Flamingo and the other in Mango Melody.
BUT if you don't know me, I am a bit of a paper saver for other projects.
I cut away the excess that is just going to be stuck together - see photo





I struggled to find the correct sentiment, then I remembered
that I had Big Plans Memories and More Card Pack with sheets of stickers.
Next I added some of the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls to my card.
I used Basic Black cardstock as my card base cut at 10.5cm x 29.7cm








 
 
With the leftover Laser-cut paper I stuck it very carefully to
Petal Pink Cardstock.

HOW TO ADD GLUE TO LASER CUT PAPER
I use a cotton tip dipped in Multipurpose Liguid Glue and lightly
add glue to the back of the paper, then carefully place down on your card.
If you happen to miss some you can easily life it with a knife and use your
cotton tip to add more glue...see photo


The Beautiful detail of this card was already created so it was a very quick card
to make...REMEMBER that cardstock that I saved!!!
I used the BigShot and Celebrate You Thinlits Dies to create my sentiment.
Cut 1 'Amazing' from Flirty Flamingo, 2 Amazing from Mango Melody
and 1 Amazing from Basic Black as well as a YOU in Basic Black too.
Add the finished word Amazing to the card then add You on top of that.
Added some more of those gorgeous pearls AND this card was finished.


I was going to create a layout with this sunset photo for this Blog Hop.
I may still use these same colours and create a layout yet!!!

BUT being sick since last Saturday and still not much better
I decided to go with a card instead. 



Up next is the Beautifully Talented Kelly with what I am sure
will be totally AMAZING creation using inspiration from Siobhan's photo.
Thanks for asking me to join you on your team's monthly Hop Kelly,
it truly is my pleasure to create something special <3

I Love You To The Moon And Back




This layout was made for a friend who has just had twin boys.
Krissy and Andrew truly have been blessed with these 2.
As soon as Andrew posted this photo of his wife with his sons,
I knew immediately that I MUST scrapbook this precious photo.
(So I stole it off FB without even asking)

In my previous post here I created a canvas with the same suite as I used here,
for Krissy and Andrew BUT she has not seen it yet (unless she has read this post)

Twinkle Twinkle
has the most gorgeous DSP and it is just perfect.I fussy cut out all the stars, moon and the heart and I stitched them to the page.
Then I tore up some white tissue (you know the kind you wrap presents in)
and created a circular shape to create the moon outline.
I then stitched it to the DSP too...I used glue dots to stick it down.


Next I printed out the photo of Krissy, Ethan and Hudson so
I could mount it on more of the beautiful DSP.
I used a distressing tool to rub back the edges of the frames and
then proceeded to stitch around them.
Lastly I add the photo and then covered the majority of the photo
with a piece of paper to protect it from the sewing machine foot then stitched all around.
 

Such a precious moment captured FOREVER <3 First Cuddles from Mummy <3

Next I added all the Silver thread around the surface of the moon <3
This was also done using Glue Dots. That thread is so fine!!!
Just gave the moon the pop I wanted.

Next I stamped the larger heart on the already printed pink heart with Night of Navy.
Popped it up with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Then I stamped "love you more than all the stars" and added more
dimensionals and popped it right on the corner of the photo.

To finish the layout off I stamped all the letters for
"Love You To The Moon And Back" out with Lined Alphabet
and Night of Navy, then fussy cut all of them for my title.
I used Foam Adhesive Strips to mount the letters around the moon shape.

Now that I have showed Krissy and asked permission to post photos of her lil men
all over the world I will show you the finished layout.


I have added this layout to my Facebook group Scrapbooking Global - Stampin' Up into Danielle Bennenk' s July Challenge Album - Textures

We Create Celebrations Blog Hop




Hello to you all, Thank you for joining us again for another Blog Hop
This month the theme is
Celebrations includes Birthdays, 4th of July, Red White & Blue, Weddings, Babies, Parties, etc.
You may have just joined me or you hopped on from Kris's blog,
I know that Kris will have created a beautiful project with Serene Garden

I have something very special to share with you all <3
Sooo I have a friend having Twin Boys within a week or so...
I had to create something for them, so Babies it is!!!
 
I decided to create a Shhh babies sleeping sign on a canvas.
I knew straight away that I would use Twinkle Twinkle Suite on pg 82
in the new Annual catalogue...The DSP is so stunning <3
In the month of July you can buy 3 packs of DSP and receive one FREE
I also had to have the Little Twinkle Stamp Set and
 
Twinkle Builder Punch.

I brought the Canvas from our cheap shop, so I think it cost me $2.
Spread Mog Podge liberally over the whole surface even the sides
so that I could stick down the paper
to the canvas so that it won't lift way from the surface
like it does if you are only using tape in various parts.

I cut the paper larger than the canvas
and stuck it to the Mod Podge smoothing out any bumps.
Then cut the corner of the paper and folded them underneath.

Then I used a retired mask with Stars all over it.
Next I used Shimmer
y White Embossing Paste 
and Night of Navy Classic Stampin' Ink Refillmixed it together on the Silicon Craft Sheet, used a palette knife to 
add some stars randomly over the page.


 
 

I used the Twinkle Builder Punch to cut 2 moons out and
I stuck them together with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals
then I added some paste to it...Had to wait for it to dry then.

Next I stamped out
SHHH with Letter for You Stamp Set

then cut out the letters with the Large Letters Framelits
on one of the beautiful DSP's from Twinkle Twinkle.
I used Mini Stampin' Deminsionals to stick these down.


Then I cut another Mint coloured DSP from Twinkle Twinkle
for an embossed photo mat with the Tufted Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
I sprayed it lightly with a light spray of water to soften the fibres
and ran it through the Big Shot...Ohh it is so pretty...Don't you agree?



Next I used the Lined Alphabet Stamp Set to stamp
SLEEPING onto Stars DSP from Twinkle Twinkle.
Then I hand cut out this word and stuck it to the bottom of the canvas
with our Multipurpose Liquid Glue


I stamped the word Brother from Thoughtful Banners Stamp Set, then used the S
from So Much to make the word 'Brothers' added it beneath Sleeping word.

Lastly I added Love you more than all the stars and added
it to the corner of the photo mat...leaving the corner unstuck so that
I can add a photo of the Twins when they are born soon!!!
Then I will give it to their parents as a Baby present...



Up next is Tricia Butts, she will have something pretty amazing
to share with you using Broadway Birthday set.
