Scrapbooking Global June 2018 Blog Hop

Scrapbooking Global - Stampin' Up was created by myself and
a group of Demonstrators on 13th Jan 2017.
We recognised a need for an exclusive group for Scrapbookers and
Memory Keepers who used Stampin' Up! products.
This group now has 3,300 plus members.

Just recently a call was put out on Facebook for a Creative Design Team
to introduce regular Challenges and Blog Hops for members
and the wider Facebook community on a monthly basis.
I am very excited to announce the Creative Design Team <3
  Delys Cram - New Zealand,  Courtenay Heuston - Australia,  Sara Levin - USA, 
Danielle Bennenk - The Netherlands,  
Stesha Bloodhart - USA,

and myself Sharon Dalton - Australia

Welcome to the inaugural Scrapbooking Global Design Team Blog Hop.
You may have just joined me from Sara levin's blog.
Sara would have created something truly AMAZING I am sure <3

So today we are showcasing the Stampin' Up! Colour Revamp
with a mixture of black and our own unique styles.
The best thing about the colour revamp is that we have so many beautiful colours
to choose from in Stampin' Up! colour palette.
I do like to keep photos the emphasis of my scrapbooking style.

I chose to use the BRAND NEW InColors that will be here for the next 2 years.
Such a pretty colour palette - Lovely Lipstick, Blueberry Bushel, Call Me Clover,
Grapefruit Grove and Pineapple Punch.

I water coloured my background with the inks using an Aqua painter.
More or less water with the ink created the variance in colour.
Try to saturate your background cardstock with too much moisture as it buckles

Then I added a variety of random stamps with black ink over different parts of the layout.
In the circular stamped area, I used a straw to add colour using re-inkers.
Then I added the same colour stamped image on the water coloured sections.

I kept stamping until I was happy with the background.
Then I grabbed some more ink on my aqua painter and tapped the edge of it
and flicked ink all over my background with all 5 colours.
I didn't want the photos to fade into the background so I framed them with more stamping.

Next I cut my title out with the new Layering Alphabet Edgelits with the same 5 InColors..
BUT that looked terrible!!!  Too big!!! Just wrong!!!

So I continued with the watercolour theme of this layout.
Stamped OnStage down the bottom and water coloured it carefully.
Lastly I added the words to my background...
Friends, Fun & Fabulous
These ladies are fellow demonstrators who have I met
through Stampin' Up! events,
I had the best time with these
girls, we had so much fun together in Sydney.
 I have been memory keeping since I was a child,
cutting out pictures from magazines covering my school books.
BUT in 2002 I was introduced to Scrapbooking and I was hooked immediately...
I loved the idea of creating beautiful pages of our family
and friends to relive the memories.
Scrapbooking has became an OBSESSION for me!!!
Thank you for hopping along with us, looking forward to you becoming obsessed too!

Up next is the very talented Stesha Bloodhart with her Colour Revamp Layout.
I am wondering if Stesha has done any fussy cutting on her layout as I know she loves to fussy cut around DSP.
