Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop August 2021- Let's Strip

Hello lovelies,

I'm Sharni Haines from South Australia and welcome to our monthly Scrapbook pages blog hop. I am glad you have joined me to hop all around the globe and check out some inspiring pages. You may have started here or come from the wonderful and talented Courtenay.

This month we have a fun theme brought to you by the lovely Sara Levin!

She chose to scrapbook a page with strips/scraps of Designer Paper. I think this is an awesome theme and look forward to sharing mine with you.

Today's theme was brought to you by the wonderful Sara!

Here is our beautiful and incredibly talented Scrapbooking Global - Stampin' Up! Creative Team.

I certainty took the brief literally, I used up all by strips and scraps and even some card candy (stamped images left over from other projects).

Let me talk you through how I made this page. First I found all the paper scraps I wanted to use and laid them over the 12"x 12" piece of Basic White Cardstock.

Then I removed them and stamped onto the paper what you can see on this photo. The Polished Pink stamped shapes are from one of the FREE Sale-A-Bration products currently available right now with every $90 order, called TEXTURES & FRAMES.

It's called TEXTURES & FRAMES and is certainly a keeper for me as it has all these wonderful artistic shapes. The ink splashes are also from the same stamp set. (I stamped in Early Espresso Ink).

I then returned the strips of Designer Series Paper (DSP) to the main page. You may notice that many strips have been scored and folded up on both sides.

The DSP is from Penguins Playmates and Beautifully Penned 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper - FREE with a $90 purchase from Sale-A-Bration as well as bits from You're a Peach 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper which is in the Annual Catty.

I am sharing a funny little photo with you, my beautiful present from my parents for my 50th Birthday gift this very own Disney Princess Sewing Machine! A sewing machine just for my crafting. I love to make quilts and you should really respect your machines, as sewing onto paper doesn't do them any good! So I have one for my paper/crafts and one for my Quilting. (I know many quilters and sewers have a lot more!) Thanks mum and dad, love

Here is a close up of the stamped ink splotches...they look so good hey? You can also see where I have added some smaller ones from my Water pen and and Early Espresso Ink Pad.

The stamped flower is also FREE Sale-A-Bration set...Delicate Dahlias. It's such a beautiful set to work with. I have to be honest with you, when I first saw it I was not wowed. But I have made some wonderful cards and creations with it and I am so glad I have it now! LOL.

OOh you can see my lovely not so straight sewing here! I do like to sew, but that doesn't mean I'm super good at it. You should see my mum, sister and Auntie Glenda's that's sewing! (I only got a little bit of that gene).

What we are really focusing on is the word JOY and sibling, clearly. I die cut Joy from Peace & Joy Bundle. The letters are from the PLAYFUL ALPHABET DIES.

You may see ANOTHER FREE product from the current Sale-A-Bration offer - the Be Dazzling Specialty Paper...this has to be my no. 1 fav.

Just a close up of some more card candy from my stash - I keep them in cellophane bags in a draw for emergencies or when the need arises, like now.

Soooo, I feel I should explain the photos! These are our children, Angus who was 20 in the photo and Sapphire 19. (both have now added another year...nearly!) They were dressed to the nines for my beautiful cousin Tanya's marriage to Peter on our property earlier this year.

During the photo shoot, Angus must have had a surge of sibling affection and had to hit Sapphire with a NOOGIE (act of rubbing one's knuckle on a person's head so as to produce a mildly painful sensation).

These are pleasant , mild mannered children...normally. Anyway, I had only got hold of this photo last evening when I started to plan this page and just had to add a little colourful history to out family scrapbook!

I hope this gave you a little laugh!

Thanks so much for popping in, have a wonderful day and keep on crafting.

loves and hugs.

Great page as always my friend - love your paper sewing machine - I have numerous machines as well and one is just dedicated to paper. I love adding fiber of any type to my pages and sewing is just one way to do it.
