Welcome back! I'm so glad you could join the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team for our next blog hop of July! Today we are featuring more projects which use new products from the 2013-2014 Stampin' Up Annual Catalog! You might have just arrived from Jeanna’s blog. If not, make sure you go all the way around the hop to get to her project!
Today I decided to share a scrapbook page that I just created with photos from the Stampin' Up! Convention 2013. It was this past week, and it was a huge celebration as the company just passed its 25th Anniversary! I took my inspiration from the colors that were the theme of convention: So Saffron, Crisp Cantaloupe, Strawberry Slush, Real Red, Pink Pirouette, Coastal Cabana, Basic Gray and Whisper White. The theme was "Be The Difference."
Here are some close-ups. I used the crepe filter paper, and colored it with a brayer and Real Red ink. The center is Strawberry Slush cardstock and an In Color Boutique Detail. I also cut circles with a 1/2" Circle Punch from the Silver Glimmer Paper, and stitched them together.
The page has a grid that I also stitched on my sewing machine in white. I printed each picture at 2.5" x 2.5", and put them on Whisper White Cardstock layers that are 2.75" x 3.5" for an instant print style look. I repeated the same type of banner element with flower and silver on the right side of the layout. This was totally inspired by the whole look of the amazing convention decorations.
One more close-up of the title and journaling. I used the 7/8" scallop circle punch on some of the Strawberry Slush colored Crepe Filter Paper, with a So Saffron Candy Dot in the matching brad. I also used the Chalk Talk Framelits for the patterned banners above and the banners underneath the "BE" letters in the title. The rest of the title is written on vellum and folded into a another style of banner. I used a scrap of Silver Glimmer Paper for the top, and then wrote my journaling.
Well, that is all for today. You’ll want to join us again next Wednesday as we feature another hop with all new projects featuring lots of new products from the new catalog!
