Welcome to another Inkreations Blog Hop. You may have come from Liv or you may be starting here. Whatever the case I hope that we inspire your creativity today and get you scrapping. I've gone with a full 12" x 12" piece of plain Basic Grey card stock and then built my page from there.
I really had to think a bit with this theme as I haven't done any scrapbooking since my daughter was one week old. She is now 7 and has a very poor excuse for an album. I guess I got stuck into the card making in a major way and haven't really gone back to any scrapping.
I've started with my Basic Grey card stock and then flicked some gold Wink of Stella in the top left and the bottom right corners. To flick the Wink of Stella you have to get a little dirty and using your fingers pull back the brush tip and then let it flick off your fingernail. It will then leave shimmery splatters on your creations an be quite pretty.
Most of the DSP used on the layout comes from the 12" x 12" paper stacks. They have a variety of patterns and they come in all the current colours. They are a handy choice when you don't have a DSP in the colour that you want.
The stamps that I've used to accent the page are Timeless Textures, Gorgeous Grunge and the ever fabulous Alphabet Rotary Stamp. Very sad to see the Rotary stamp retiring but I think there will be something fantastic to replace it in the new up coming 2016 - 2017 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. Just sayin'.
I didn't want too much journaling on the page. Just a few word cut out of dies or stamped to convey what I wanted to say on the page. I have to go back and figure out when these photos where taken as these shots are quite a few years old and my kiddies have grown just a little since then.
The page has been finished off with some Burlap Ribbon, Crochet Trim, Gold Basic Buttons and some Gold Sequins. I could have kept going with the embellishments but sometimes enough is enough.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Next on the hop is the scrapping queen herself Lauren. She is one fabulous scrapper!
