Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop February 2023 - Travel

Hello lovelies,

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.

I have been absent for a few months but I am back!

This month we are creating a page about Travel. This is my theme, and I purposely chose it because I was away overseas last year for a total of about 4 months (ahhh) and knew I would have hopefully some great photos of my trips.

One of the amazing places we visited in July 2022, was a special part in the northern mountains of Italy, Madonna di Campiglio in Trento. We went there especially for our eldest child, Angus's Orienteering competition.

Once I developed my photos, I knew instantly what Designer Series Paper I wanted to use.


The mountain theme and colours were perfect for this enlarged photo.

I used the Nature's Prints Bundle to create the major embellishments. I used a blending brush to add Garden Green & Granny Apple Green onto Shimmery Paper then stamped images and die cut the foliage images you can see on the finished page.

You may notice I stamped script over a lot of the page (including the photos). This is from Ranunculus Romance. The dots were from Quiet Meadow. I used He's All That Stamp Set to make a compass (Orienteering theme).

The bees are from Honey Bee Home Bundle, coloured in with Watercolour Pencils.

The gold embellishments are the Brushed Metallic Adhesive - Backed Dots. And the clear ones are Iridescent Rhinestones basic Jewels. I ruffled up the edges of the Designer Paper and glued it over the top of a sheet of Basic White 12"x 12" that I had inked with Garden Green and stamped with the script image.

So here is the completed page. I'd love to make a matching page in the near future, as I have more spectacular photos of the area and stories to tell about Angus's amazing competition.

Up NEXT is the very talented Sherry

Here is the list of everyone participating in today's hop....please visit everyone as I know there will be some gorgeous scrapbook designs.

Thanks for dropping by, have a wonderful day and take care.

Sharni, there is sooo much GREEN... I am actually GREEN with envy at this layout and the location. You created a STUNNING layout with a few basics to begin with...Stamps, Ink and Paper, then you stepped it up a gear with all the extra decorative bits... Love it Cheers Shaz
