Confetti Celebration Scrapbook Layout

Whilst crafting with friends today one of them said she didn't really know what to do with Washi tape.
On this page I have used it three ways

1. As a border/ mount for the photograph - I edged the photo with a thin strip of tape and wrapped it round the back and trimmed the corners.


2. As a title - I butted pieces of tape up against each other on a strip of card then used it to cut out letters of the alphabet to create my title using the Stampin Up! Perfect Print alphabet die.


3. As a decorative feature at the top and bottom of the page to pull it altogether. 



Here is the completed page

Project Life Playground Scrapbook Page 3



My third but probably not my last scrapbook page using the versatile Playground Project Life card and accessory set. When I saw the cards had plasters I knew I had to use them with a photograph of my nephew Marlo who recently broke a bone in his foot when he decided it would be a good idea to jump down from the top bunk instead of climbing down the ladder!

Once  again all the products except the 12x12 Whisper White Cardstock are from the Project Life Playground cards and accessory sets. I just used some clever cutting techniques to create the embellishments with just one addition; stamping with the triangles from the Oh Angles stamp set to create a background  in Lost Lagoon

Here are the images from the Oh Angles Stamp Set

I can see me using then a lot on my cards and pages

I have recently rediscovered my love for traditional 12x12 scrapbooking using Stampin' Up! Products. My latest pages used the Playground Project Life Cards and Accessory Kit as the base. 




All the products on this page were from the Project Life products with the addition of the bunting banner that was made with the Confetti Celebration designer series paper

Hexagon Hive card 6



This one might look complicated but in actual fact it was quite easy to produce. The bottom layer involved a bit of bartering or blending with a sponge. I used the latter method. I am rubbish at brayering.

Hexagon Hive card 5

Once again this card used the Hexagon Hive framelit as a stencil but this time with Strawberry Slush ink; in colour sequins and the sentiment from the Make a Wish stamp set,

Hexagon Hive card 4

This card cleverly uses the die as a stencil which is then filled in with sponge and Coastal Cabana ink. A few sequins have been applied to bling it up



Hexagon Hive card 3



This card uses a white on white hexagon hive with a pop of colour from Coastal Cabana and of course some punched butterflies

Hexagon Hive card 2

The colours are whisper white; coastal cabana and baked brown sugar

This one uses a section of the hive in one colour and the cut outs left over from the previous card along with punched out stars, sentiments and Bakers Twine

Hexagon Hive card 1

I have made several cards using the hexagon hive framelit recently which I will share over the next few posts




This one uses the pieces it cuts out with the Kinda Eclectic stamp set

Flashback Scrapbook Page 2


If you saw the previous post you will see I made my first book page for ages. I like the layout but wanted a more girlie feel for my niece Bella ( who we all call Boo).

I used the in - colours 2013-2015 with the emphasis on Coastal Cabana and the  lovely Strawberry Slush; rhinestones instead of pearls and a few mini staples. 










Flashback scrapbook page




I haven't used my stampin up supplies to create a scrapbook page for ages. The Very Vanilla 12x12 card stock  was stamped with black momento and 'Pool Party' ink using my very favourite 'Gorgeous Grunge' stamp set. 

I then cut two 'Hexagon Hive' thinlits out in very vanilla using my Big Shot and layered some of the cutouts onto the solid hexagonsz I cut then out to make a more irregular shape than just rectangles.

I then cut strips of different widths and lengths from the 'Flashback' designer series papers as shown.
I then added the thinlit hexagons on top and stuck them down; one towards the right edge and the other to the right hand side of the 12x12 base.

I mounted my photograph using  Very Vanilla Cardstock and a piece of the designer series paper and adhered it to the page.

I then used the excess vanilla hexagons; punched stars and basic pearls to decorate the page.

I punched a tag out of designer series paper Andries it with linen thread and tooled it behind the photograph.




I finished it off by cutting my title from designer series paper using the Perfect Print alphabet die.
