Welcome to the Scrapbooking Global February 2021 blog hop. It was my turn to choose this months theme and I thought it would be fun to try something a little different. So we are playing BINGO! How fun is that?!
Here’s how it works…
We create one project using all three squares from any row, column or diagonal line. It’s pretty easy actually. We’d love for you to play along! If you create a layout that earns you a bingo, be sure to share it over in the Scrapbooking Global Facebook group.
For my Bingo I did the middle row:
- Stitching (Faux or Real)
- Use 3 Different Patterned Papers
But I also managed to incorporate some splatter and I used a SAB product! The great thing about this is that you can use the Bingo sheet over and over to create so many different layouts.
I was inspired to start an ‘anything goes’ album. My friend Nicole has one and I think it’s a great idea. It’s an album where the puts in the layouts for photos that don’t really fit into her other albums. She doesn’t worry about what order they are in or what the photos are. They could be photos of her parents when they were younger or photos of food that she ate 2 years ago or a place that she visited yesterday. It’s just a place for all those random photos.
I have a drawer full of those ‘random’ photos. Some of them are leftovers from other projects or smaller versions of photos that I’ve already documented. Some are from years and years ago.
I decided to go with our 6″ x 8″ album for this project so todays layout is 6″ x 8″.
Let’s talk about the layout…
To create the background I swiped my Seaside Spray ink pad across a piece of white card stock. Then splattered with some Petal Pink ink. I also added a few leaves using the negative space from one of the die cut leaves as a stencil and added some old olive ink with my blending brush.
The photo is layered using scraps of the patterned paper. I love doing this – it’s a great use of scraps. The flowers and the leaves are die cut from the circular pattern dsp. The die cut flowers and leaves are where the stitching comes in. I absolutely adore these dies with the stitching on them. They remind me of the beautiful leaf dies we had in the holiday catalogue.
The last bingo element was bling – I added a few of the Elegant Faceted Gems to cover that. I just love how this layout came together and I look forward to creating more 6″x 8″ layouts for my ‘Anything Goes’ album.
I’ll be focusing on the In Bloom bundle and coordinating Paper Blooms DSP in my daily Facebook lives next week (on my Stamped Treasures page). I hope you can join me!
Thanks so much for visiting! Head on over to Marga’s blog to see what she created. Enjoy hopping along to see the beautiful projects that everyone else created!
Have a creative day!
