Hello hello - May is here and we're celebrating paper paper paper. Free DSP on offer for customers and free DSP if you join in May. (Details here.)
To kick off paper month in style, how about a blog hop. I'm part of the Art With Heart team and there are lots of talented scrapbookers in the crew led by Claire Daly. Our blog hop today has 11 stops so you'll have lots of inspiration along the way for ways to use your Stampin' Up DSP in your scrapbooking. Waving a hi if you've arrived from Alisha's blog and let's get moving if you're kicking off from here.
Now I'm a very simple scrapbooker - a photo, some paper, a story. For this layout I've just gone with a word actually that I hear when I see this photo of Hannah.
A sparkle in the eye, sparkly dress and shoes, a sparkly smile. I look at this photo and see a bright, happy girl, and must be a mum thing but I almost get a lump in the throat seeing how fast she is growing up. I want to hang on to my little girl, but am excited to watch her mature too.
I've matted with coordinating colours - Always Artichoke and Not Quite Navy, plus Early Espresso for the photo.
My base is a scrapbooking favourite - Crumb Cake.
My letters (Simple Letters Alphabet die pg 159) were cut from the silver glimmer paper.
They got a bit lost on the page ......
.... so I grabbed out an aquapainter and my Not Quite Navy reinker and painted on a few layers of colour to coordinate with my papers.
Aaaaah, that's better.
Some of our delicate little pearls and Baroque Motifs to snazz up the base layer a little.
Ready to pop in the album. Now I don't know about you but I'm very excited about this blog hop and can't wait to zip round the sites and get some scrapbooking ideas. I've got a nice stash of my favourite DSPs and I just know the girls will get me all inspired to get it out and get creating.
Next stop in the hop is the very talented scrapbooker Kathryn Ruddick using one of my favourite packs of paper. Have fun!
And get in touch if you'd like to take advantage of our May paper specials.
