DEMONSTRATOR'S STAMPIN' UP! MINI BLOG HOP...
Morning everyone, and are we having fun on our hop this morning?? There are some amazing projects that we are seeing from the new Stampin' Up! mini catalogue that is released on the 1st April (next week!) If you don't already have a copy of the catalogue please email me if you would like me to send you one!
Well you have just joined me from Linda's Blog and she always manages to make fantastic projects, I love the colours that she has chosen, her work always looks stunning - check out her blog on a Tuesday for a colour challenge as well!
For my first project I have chosen Vintage Vogue this a a set of 8 stamps and is £19.95. I have decided to make a scrapbook page. It is 6x6 and I have used basic black card. I have inked the egdes of the layout with craft ink, once I had done this I stamped the vine from the stamp set in the corners. I stamped three in each corner and then the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner, I also stamped this in craft ink. I then added a picture that I left a white border on and mounted this on black card stock and inked the edges in craft. In the top left I added a large flower detail also from the stamp set and used the smaller flower as the centre, sticking them down with dimensionals. In the bottom right of the picture i just used one of the smaller flowers and stuck this w ith a dimensional. For those of you that don't know my wedding day was very rushed - In the true sense of the word it was a shotgun wedding - I was five months pregnant! and I organised the whole day in 12 weeks! I believe this a) saved money b) saved a lot of stress and c) kept me slim! Although I was in and out of hospital beforehand and was not fitted for my dress until the Saturday before the big day! I love this picture as instictively John reached out to touched my belly as he kissed me, where our little man was hiding! This is only my third attempt at a proper scrapbook layout so I have kept it very simple and not added much colour - especially as it was a wedding shot. I hope you like it and I think that the Vintage Vogue set is perfect for something like this - it looks so classic!
