Scrapbooking Global December 2020 Blog Hop Theme: Together

Hello lovelies,

welcome to our December Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop. Our theme is 'Together'. And what a wonderful theme it is! Because I believe we need each other right now more than ever and even if we physically can't be together, the bonds and support we create for ourselves and the support and love that we can share makes a wonderful sense community and feeling of belonging to something bigger than ourselves. Being part of this awesome team for example, makes me feel I matter and that I belong. I hope you too have such connections and support from others.

I'm Sharni Haines from South Australia you may have started here or come from the very talented Mai . I think we are in for a lovely treat today with such a heartfelt theme! Take your time and enjoy all our designs and layouts and hopefully gain some inspiration for your own scrapbooking pages.

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

Today's theme is brought to you by the talented Delys from New Zealand!!!

I literally had an hour to whip something up today, take all the photos, edit them and write this blog!!(feeling very naughty and disorganised!)...but I did it!

The layout and design for my page came very quickly and spontaneously - I utilized pretty much what was right in front of me at the time!

All morning I was playing with the new Gilded Leafing from the 2021 Mini Catalogue,(this goes live in January) I had stuff everywhere, then after making a heap of cards (and mistakes) I realised it was time to get on with the scrapbook page and I was late.

I grabbed some black 12x12" cardstock and gilded the edges using VersaMark, Heat & Stick Powder and finally the lushious gold foil. OOOh it was such fun! I needed photos to work with for the design - the first ones I found on my desk which looked good with the black and gold were some Halloween shots from my Halloween parties I held last year with my class craft ladies.

I used the Ghoulish Goodies Stamp Set and embossed the images with Gold and Black Embossing Powder.
