Welcome to the Scrapbooking Global July 2022 blog hop. This months theme is our favourite colour.
As part of the Scrapbooking Global design team we participate in a monthly blog hop and challenges but anyone can join in if they’d like. We’d love to have you join us! Be sure to join the Scrapbooking Global – Stampin’ Up! Facebook Group so you know when the sign up starts for our next hop.
This was a tougher theme than I thought it would be because my favourite colour changes from season to season and my mood. I landed on a colour that I go back to again and again, no matter what the season or mood – Pool Party. Pool Party is such a great colour because it works with so many different colours but also at any time of the year.
Before I share my layout, I thought I’d share a bit about creating the background. There are a few different layers of ink here. I did the packaging technique using Pool Party ink across the two pages, then I splattered using my water painter and some Bermuda Bay ink. And then added a few stamped leaves from the Perfect Pomegranate stamp set.
The border across the top was the leftover piece after cutting out a few strips of the scallops from this patterned paper from the Celebrate Everything dsp (a host reward product). I absolutely love this paper pattern and knew as soon as I saw it that I wanted to cut out some of these scallops for a layout.
You can see in the photo below that I layered a few of these strips behind my photos. I love the whimsical feel of them. How the scallops aren’t perfect.
The flowers and the leaves are from the Perfect Pomegranate stamp set – a set that you can earn for free with a qualifying workshop during Sale-a-Bration (until August 31st, 2022). Look at the texture on those stamped images… love it!
And here’s a look at the completed layout.
Although this is a traveler’s notebook sized layout (about 4″ x 8″), this layout could easily be reproduced as a 12×12 layout using 4″x 6″ photos. This just happens to be the size that I’m working with for this years album.
