Ink & Share Scrapbook May Blog Hop

Sneak Peak

Welcome to Ink and Share Scrapbook May Blog Hop - Personal Choice.
Hello Everyone, I cannot believe that we are at the end of May
So this can only mean one thing June is just around the corner..
June means a Brand New Catalogue...
For me that means I need to add ink to some of the stamp sets that I have brought
throughout 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue and have NEVER seen ink!!

The stamp set and dies that I chose to use today is Love You To Pieces
and the co-ordinating dies Puzzle Pieces...PLUS other un-inked stamps

This is a set that I kept telling myself that I didn't need, BUT I kept seeing so many
inspiring layouts using this set that in May of this year I decided to buy it!!!
So inspiration is where I started this layout... I blatantly CASED Linda Dalke <3
BUT I added something that I had seen in the soon to be RELEASED Annual catalogue
PG 75, until June 3 we cannot show you the inside of the catalogue.

Firstly I gathered some similar colours to Linda, all the Greys and Blues.
Gray Granite, Smoky Slate, Basic Gray, Sahara Sand, Seaside Spray and Pacific Point.

First I stamped the stitched heart from Photopolymer Stamp Set Heartfelt across
the middle of my layout in 2 rows with Pacific Point.
I added some ink in places over the background stamp Handwritten
and just touched it lightly in varying places over the backgound
Next I started to add all the splotches of colour similar to Linda's
I just kept adding until I was happy with how it looked...
The splotches come from the stamp set
Geared Up Garage
So Happy that it is carrying over into 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue
RELEASED June 3, cannot wait!!!

Next I added some hearts from Love You To Pieces Cling Stamp Set
using Smoky Slate and Pacific Point Inks.
Then I added the puzzle piece from Love You to Pieces stamp set stamped
in Pacific Point over the whole of the splotches, writing and hearts.
I do LOVE this whole grungy type look to a layout <3
I chose a photo of my Brother and I at my Daughter's Wedding...
I absolutely LOVE my Brother with all of my heart and
he keeps me calms my nerves and helps me hold it all together <3
Hearts had to feature in this layout,  so I had use Heartfelt Stamp Set too

The very next thing I did was added some of these splotches to a scrap piece
of Whisper White cardstock and then added the hearts again and
stamped the words Thanks for Keeping Me Together from Love You To Pieces set
then I ran it through the die cutting machine to cut it into small puzzle pieces
Then I rang a piece of Smoky Slate with the same die to create the background.
I cut a Heart from the Be Mine Stitched Dies and added it over the top.
Then I stamped Pacific Point ink on Pacific Point Cardstock to stamp Love You
and then I diecut it out and used dimensionals to pop it up.

I do LOVE how it turned out...Hope you enjoyed my process too <3
This photo is not the best, I have so much trouble with lighting...
will upload a new one in the morning

Up next is Kristie, who is an avid scrapbooker so I cannot wait to see what she
creates with this theme...
