Scrapbooking Global - Stampin' Up! - Let's Strip - August 2021

 Welcome to Scrapbooking GlobalStampin' Up! August Blog Hop - Let's Strip.  We have a few Creative team members from the group as well as several of our talented scrappers from all over the world joining us to play along.....It's been a while since I participated and I struggled to get back into the groove to do a Scrapbook layout...You may have joined me from Jill Hamlett's blog or started with me here at Studio Shabaz


Today our Talented Design Team member Sara Levin gave us a FUN theme to play to this month - Let's Strip. 


In other words she wants us to use strips of paper/dsp to create a layout... I created my background with 2 different strips of B&W DSP paper from Beautifully Penned DSP, a FREE SAB* product during August and September.  Then I stuck this to a black 12x12 piece of cardstock.

NEXT, I used 1 strip of B&W DSP paper Beautifully Penned DSP from SAB* AND 1 strip of purple paper from Hand-Penned DSP from the Annual catalogue. From the purple paper I cut 9 individual tags with Tailor Made Tags Dies. I stuck these at varying heights on top of the B&W horizontal strip.  I added some Fresh Freesia 3/8" open weave ribbon to the centre strip with a bow to creates one dimension to the layout.


Next I used the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set on some Basic Whisper White cardstock with Mementos Ink and then used matching inks to what is in the DSP to fill in the flowers and leaves.  Pale Payaya, Highland Heather, Daffodil Delight, Mint Macaron. I fussy cut the flowers out and added dimensional to them to the centre circle of flowers and outer edge of the photo mat.  I have used 2 different coloured DSP'S for my photo mats from the Hand-Penned DSP, I used the reverse side instead of the floral side.

 Just a very basic layout for my 1st layout in a few months...Up next is the very creative Julia Quinn.  I cannot wait to see what she has created....
