Kre8tors Blog Hop - August

                                                                                                        
                                                  Thanks for joining me again for August's Kre8tors Blog Hop. I know that you're going to find some great inspiration from the wonderfully creative Stampin' Up! demonstrators as you follow along with us.   


This months theme is Water - this could include lakes, rivers, rain, snow, ice but i went for a more obvious choice especially with the mini heatwave we're having over in the UK at the moment  "By The Sea"                
                                                  
You may have just visited  Tracy's blog or perhaps you are starting your journey here with me. I hope you like our creations and that they give  you inspiration for Water themed projects.



I started by choosing the photograph I've been wanting to scrap for ages, then grabbed the left over Tranquil Texture DSP from previous layouts that I have done with them along two stamp sets - High Tide and Sea of Textures which has coordinating framelits - Under the Sea 







I've added dimension to the waves by placing Stampin' Dimensional under them, I'm not sure if the photograph has picked this up.  Can you spy my hidden journalling?
Yes pull this cute fella and hay presto ....




I hope you like my take on this " Theme " - *supplies used  to create this Scrapbook page can be ordered via my Online store here

Don't forget to leave me a comment below, before you continue hoping on over to see what Linda has  with this theme.

Stamp 'N Hop


Welcome to my first blog hop with this creative group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world. 

Each month they follow a theme and for August they have chosen "Masculine" - which some people tend to struggle with. 





You may have just visited Tracy's blog or perhaps you are starting your journey here with me. I hope you like our creations and that they give  you inspiration for Masculine themed cards/projects





Having three brothers and knowing their habits I knew which stamps and framelits I was definitely going to purchase when it came out and I've used it for this hop - Bubble Over  and Bottles & Bubbles Framelits Dies

Here I've sponged the Very Vanilla  base with So saffron before stamping off the bubbles in the same colour, next I stamped of the water/ring marks in Cajan Craze.

The bottles I cut out again in Very Vanilla before sponging them with Gray Granite. 





I then added some Copper  Metallic thread behind the bottles  and added a label on one of them using the Copper Foil.

Here's a slightly closer view for you..










I  hope you liked  my card - all the supplies used can be ordered via my Online store here

Ink and Share Scrapbook Blog Hop



Welcome to the Ink and Share Scrapbook Blog Hop  this month we are featuring any Designer Series Paper featured in this years Annual Catalogue, the projects are designed by fellow Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators from around the world.

You may have joined me from Lisa's Blog or perhaps you are starting your journey here with me. I hope you like our creations and that they give you inspiration.



I chose to play with the Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper, as they matched my photo's to hand from the other weekend when we had  Eli.

Using a 12x12 of Tranquil Tide Cardstock  cut out a frame using an electric cutting machine. I then layed my photos under the frames I wanted to use. I then repeated this process with the Designer Series Paper.






I so loved Eli's smile and giggles when Frank pushed him on the swing that I made  this a focal point on another layout as you can see here. 












This time I matted the photograph on Tranquil Tide card stock. Using a stencil from my stash inked this up with Tranquil Tide ink. 

And yes I'm being a bit lazy at the moment as I've still got my title and journalling to do.

Colour Combo Blog Hop - August





Welcome  to  August's Colour Combo Blog Hop. I was slightly intrigued as how I was going to use this months choice of colours, especially  as Blackberry Bliss and Merry Merolt are both dark colours. Once I got my creative thinking cap my mind just kept on racing. 

Welcome if you've just joined me from Elisabeth's blog and her lovely creations using this colour combo, hop back if you haven't or just continue around the hop and complete the circle.




As you can see from my finished card above I managed to tone down the colours down with my aqua painter.







Firstly I  wetted the Watercolour Paper before adding my colours - Pool Party, Merry Merlot and Blackberry Bliss (in that order). When I was happy with the results I used Chase Your Dreams Framelits to cut out feathers of varying sizes and the main dream catcher element. 

I then arranged them on the card adhering with the Stampin' Up!s Fine-Tip Glue Pen, and added a few Pearls from the Share What you Love collection. 

I hope you like my creation - all supplies used  to created this card can be ordered via my Online store here

Ink and Share Blog Hop




Welcome to  my first  Ink and Share Blog Hop  this month we are featuring Masculine themed projects designed by fellow Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators from around the world.






You may have joined me from Linda's Blog or perhaps you are starting your journey here with me. I hope you like our creations and that they give you inspiration.

For my creations I have focused on using the Wood Textures 6x6 DSP - which are at the moment included in Stampin' Up!s paper offer more details can be found here 







This first card also uses an old favourite stamp set of mine Lovely As A Tree.

I've also added some texture by Stampin' Off (second generation stamping),  tearing the layering card stock and using some Linen Thread. 

The sentiment is from the new Itty Bitty Greetings stamps set 






This second card is recessed panel card, they are really quick and simple to make and give that Wow factor!!  







I  hope you've liked what I've shared with you - all supplies used  to created these cards can be ordered via my Online store here
