Daisy Delight Bundle - Thank you



Thank You!

The new Stampin' Up! year starts on October 1st and my husband & I have a goal to earn the incentive trip, a cruise to the Greek Isles.  After the last year, filled with so many Ups & Downs, we would love the opportunity to have Stampin' Up! spoil us a bit.  We have been working to rebuild our business and social media presence.  It has been, and still is, a lot of work.  Thanks to all of you, things are starting to move forward again and that goal looks more obtainable than ever.

We wish we could send this card to each and every one of you who stood by us while my husband and I cared for his mother.  It has meant so much to both of us.  Since mailing that many cards might be a bit tough on our budget, we are sending it to you through this blog, along with all our love and appreciation!

Just Add Color



Colorful Memories

Adult coloring books have been all the rage for a while now.  As a crafter, especially a rubber stamper, I understand it.  Coloring with ink, markers, pencils, etc. is very relaxing.  That’s why I fell in love with the Just Add Color Specialty Designer Series Paper. I knew it would not just make great cards, but also great backgrounds for scrapbook pages. 



The page design I picked for this layout is filled with leaves gently swirling all around the page.  On the left page (shown on top) I cut approximately 1/3 of the DSP sheet giving it a half moon edge which I attached a 12” x 12” piece of Whisper White card stock.  Then I fussy cut several leaves from the remainder of the sheet and added them swirling around our family photos.  As we are a blended family we feel that joining together brought more color into our lives.  With that thought in mind I used Watercolor Pencils to add soft colors to the leaves in a windswept curve through the individual photos and a little onto the second page flowing to the family photo. 

It’s hard to see the colors in the photos so here’s a close-up.

I hope you enjoyed today’s scrapbook layout.
