Scrapbooking Global - Stampin' Up! Blog Hop - Shapes by 9


Welcome to Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop for November 2020.
Scrapbooking Global - Stampin' Up! is a group for those of you who
LOVE SCRAPBOOKING and who use Stampin' Up! products on their layouts.
Join us here...


We have the lovely Creative Design Team Sara Levin who got to choose this theme...
Shapes by 9...
IE: repeat a single shape of your choice 9 times in creating your layout.
This certainly made me think very differently...

You may have just joined me from Sara's Blog, her creation is just AWESOME!!!
We have 9 of us creating our very own versions of Shapes x 9.

I immediately looked at my Dies to see what shapes I could use...
I just purchased Stitched Triangles and I thought that I would just case the layout
on pg 35 of our Annual Catalogue...
BUT I went on a totally different tangent....
I thought that I would be make an alternate project with the products from
The Paper Pumpkin Kit - Joy To The World.
These kits are normally only sold in USA, BUT this year we have had 2 kits
sold globally to all the markets within Stampin' Up! company.

I was inspired by Rachel Tessman who made 40 cards from her 8 card kit by using
extra cardstock and cutting up the envelopes and cards to make them go further.
Sherry Roth who is also on our Scrapbooking Global - Stampin' Up! also created
and alternative Scrapbooking Layout from the Joy To The World Kit

 I could see a Christmas Tree as soon as I cut out all the triangles
So I created a Christmas Tree with 9 Stitched Triangles...
OHHH this Shapes x 9 is turning out easier than I thought!!!

So I had a tree so this layout was going to have to be a Christmas themed layout...
So I continued using the Paper Pumpkin Kit to create this layout.
I drew a circle in the middle of my Whisper White 12x12 Cardstock
to create a wreath with the wreath stamp...
I stamped 9 Wreaths stamped in Just Jade Classic Stampin Pad on my layout....
I added some berries around the wreath with Cherry Cobbler Classic Stampin Pad.
I knew that I would place my Christmas Tree down the LHS side of the wreath.

I used some of the Cable Kit Embossed Card and Floral Die cuts from Joy to the World Kit
to fill the centre of the wreath.  I also used some Cherry Cobbler cardstock for my mats...
I overlapped the 2 photo mats...Adding Stampin' Dimensionals to the RHS so that I could
still add a photo on the LHS photo mat...

Next I added the Floral Die cuts again with Stampin' Dimensionals...
to allow for photo placement.
Lastly I added the Christmas Tree made from the envelope and cardstock....
Then I added the gold word from the word Die cuts in the packs.

Here is my finished layout...

 Up next is Sharni Haines, I am absolutely positive that Sharni
will create something totally AMAZING...She always does!!!
