I'm Sharni Haines from South Australia and welcome to the Scrapbooking Global Design Team's monthly blog hop. Every month we have a new challenge or theme. You are more than welcome join us! You can find us on the Scrapbooking Global – Stampin’ Up! Facebook Group where we show and share our love of scrapbooking and have the monthly themes where you can join in the blog hop.
This month it was my turn to choose a theme, and I thought working with Vellum would be an interesting if not fun one.
Here is our beautiful and incredibly talented Scrapbooking Global - Stampin' Up! Creative Team.
I have create my own background using a 12" x 12' sheet of Vellum (VELLUM 12" X 12" (30.5 X 30.5 CM) LAYERING DESIGNS), Stampin' Blends & isopropyl alcohol.
I used the Stampin' Blends picture above in the photo.
I will show how I created this page a bit later when I have a bit more time and feeling better.
As my base, I used the White Map design from this fabulous Vellum Layering Designs Paper Collection.
I have manged to complete my page....a few hours late! No photo yet.
I wanted to keep the background as the major feature, and not go too busy, I decided to keep the floral die cuts neutral with Basic Grey Ink.
I will likely use a black & white photo too.
I used a few new stamp sets to me (never been used before) to decorate around the edges of the photo matting - Nature's Prints & Garden Wishes, with coordinating Dies. I cut 3 layers of Cardstock - Polished Pink, Blushing Bride and Basic White to make a landing point for the photo to go.
The Celebrate word was stamped with Basic Gray using the Create with Friends Stamp and fussy cut out. You may notice the splatters about the page, they were added last with Basic Gray Re Inker and a paint brush.
I also embellished the page with a few Classic Matte Dots.
The vellum was attached to a 12"x 12" Basic White Cardstock with Double Sided Tape that I simply added to all four edges. The Vellum is pretty lumpy and bumpy from all the isopropyl alcohol & heating, but that didn't bother me and just adds to the handmade finish.
That's all from me today, thank you very much for dropping in and I hope I have given you some ideas and inspiration and maybe a smile on your face?
Please continue to hop around and see what beautiful pages everyone else has made to share with you.
Next up is Rae Jean can't wait to see what she has made!
