Scrapbooking Global March Blog Hop - Black & White Photo

Welcome to Scrapbooking Global March Blog Hop where our NEWEST
Creative Design Team Member Ma
ï Chapelain
gets to challenge us with her Blog Hop theme of Black & White photo...
There are 13 Blog Hoppers this month...
So lots of inspiration, to get us through this uncertain time ahead during
the self-isolating to ease the increase of people coming into contact with Coronavirus.  

I do hope that you are all well and your family are well too.
Happy Scrappin' in the coming days and weeks <3
You may be starting the hop with me or you might have hopped from Sherry Roth's blog

Immediately I was drawn to creating a layout with an old photo...
BUT I decided against that for this layout...I chose to scrap this lil cutie.
I babysit my cousin's daughter once a fortnight for 2 days and 1 night.
So she gets to do things that she doesn't normally do at home....
For instance collecting the eggs from the chickens at Pop's...

Well you see Pop,
he is my Dad <3  He is 77, an old country boy from way back. 
Well Dad calls a spade a spade and he speaks his own unique language..
You will see from the title of this layout...
So try to understand his language when you see it!!!
He calls eggs....BUMNUTS!!!

I have used a couple of the patterned papers from Pleased As Punch DSP
from the Co-ordination range of products that co-ordinate
with our Mini and Sale-A-Bration catalogues.

My base cardstock is 12 x12 Blushing Bride from the Subtles Range of Cardstock,
which I have stamped with background stamp All Wired Up in Gray Granite ink.
All DSP measurements will be at the bottom of the Blog Post.

No real techniques used to create this layout, just products from our wonderful
Mini Catalogue and our Annual Catalogue

First up I used the Full of Happiness Stamp Set (it has a chicken and egg)
This stamp would be great for Easter...
I used So Saffron ink pad for the chicken and then it's legs I used Crushed Curry ink pad on whisper white cardstock which I hand cut out.
Next I used Highland Heather ink pad for the egg on whisper white cardstock,
and I stamped offon some scratch paper for the lines on the egg.
I did have to redo the lines again so re-inking and stamping off again.
I used Tuxedo Momento ink for the eyes of the chicken and Crushed Curry for the beak.
This stamp makes the chicken look so life like... Love it!!

You can co-ordinate this stamp set with Dino Dies to cut out your half eggs
BUT I hand cut them as they are really easy to cut.

I used the Sale-A-Bration Small Blooms Punch with the co-ordinating DSP
for all the flowers on the layout...

My Title is created with DSP from Tropical Oasis DSP using Lined Alphabet Stamp set
and matching Layering Alphabet dies...I stamped them with Pool Party ink
and then die cut them out.
My smaller word underneath my title is created with Make A Difference Stamp Set
using Highland Heather Ink pad and then I punched it out with Classic Label Punch
I used the Triple Banner Punch to create my banners out of the DSP.

So here is the finished layout... Hope you enjoyed all my sneak peaks..
