Scrapbooking Global October 2019 blog hop Seeing Double

Blog hopping today with Scrapbooking Global. This month's theme is seeing double meaning a double layout.

So here are my 2 pages from our recent trip to Vietnam.

My youngest daughter has more personality than I know what to do with, but she is the cutest and loveliest little girl when she is happy :-)

Basic layout today

Basic Gray cardstock and photos mounted on Basic Black and Melon Mambo.

I stamped the background in versamark with the sand or bubble stamp from the Magical Mermaid set and added some bubbles with the Shimmery White Embossing Paste to give it a bit of texture and interest.



I added a little bit of Feels Like Frost designer series paper and some hearts punched in Melon Mambo and Silver Foil.




The title is Melon Mambo with the new Hand-Lettered Prose Dies.



A simple layout with black and white photos.

Hope you enjoy it

Home Decor SU Style Blog Hop April 2019

Welcome to my blog - you may have come from Renee Ondrajka's amazing blog.

It has been a while since I have taken part in one of these home décor style blog hops. But I am hoping to get back into it now.

One day I went through Spotlight (craft store) I saw they had big packs of canvasses on special, so I picked up 40 canvasses for $50AUD, what I bargain.

But then I had to think of something to do with them. Well, the kids had already spotted them and painted 10 of them, so better be quick :-)

I decided to do something with the hot air balloons from the Lift me up stamp set and Up and Away dies. They are beautiful and would be perfect decorations for a kid’s room, so off I went.
 

First, I sprayed the canvas with water ensuring it was completely wet. Then I used the aqua painter to water colour Balmy Blue ink on.

When the ink had dried, I used the negative image of a cloud die cut out and filled the void with Shimmery White Embossing Paste and added a few clouds to the canvas.
 

I stamped the two balloon images in Melon Mambo on Whisper White cardstock and cut them out with the matching dies.

I then stamped a greeting from an old retired stamp set in Melon Mambo on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out with the medium balloon die. I cut another medium balloon out of Melon Mambo cardstock and one of the large detailed balloons out of Whisper White.
 

I attached the cut balloons around the canvas, some using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and some using Stampin’ Dimensionals to add a bit of dimension.

 
I think it turned into a cute little décor item, which would be perfect for any little girl’s room :-)


If you like the balloons – stamps and dies – you better get in quick. These will retire with the current catalogue on 3 June 2019, but may sell out before, so make sure to order them as soon as possible :-)

Hope you are enjoying today's project, please leave a comment and please hop on to see the rest of the amazing projects.

Home Décor SU Style Blog Hop August 2018

Home Décor SU Style Blog Hop August 2018


Yes, I know it is September already, but this hop was slightly delayed, so August hop it is.

We are heading to Denmark in a couple of weeks where we will be welcoming a new little niece of nephew. That means that our 2 year old niece will become a big sister and we thought she might need a little big of something J

This is what I came up with – a mermaid shaker frame




I sponged the background with pool party, Bermuda bay and pear pizzazz and then dripped water over to create the little drops/bubbles in the colouring. I stamped the grass image from Magical Mermaid in pear pizzazz.

I stamped the mermaid with versamark on shimmer white paper and gold embossed her. Then I watercoloured her with lovely lipstick, gorgeous grape, early espresso and petal pink.


This frame is just a cheap frame and had lying around. I decided not to put the glass back in as a shaker frame with glass might not be the best thing for a 2 year old.
  
I stamped the ‘mermaid kisses and starfish wishes’ with staz’on on the window sheet.

I then added some different sequins and shaker frame is ready.



Hope you are enjoying today’s project, please leave a comment and please hop on to see the rest of the hop.

Home Decor SU Style Blog Hop July 2018


Today it is time for another bloghop. Another piece of home décor to show you.

This one is a little frame for my youngest daughter.


I wanted to use the new designer series paper Twinkle Twinkle that is part of the current promotion, buy 3 get one free. The colours in this paper are a mix of old and new colours – Gray Granite, Night of Navy, Petal Pink, Pool Party, Soft Sea Foam and Whisper White.

I started with a piece of dsp in the background. This piece is Petal Pink with Whisper White with star constellations, and is super cute.

I then added a piece of Whisper White. Here I stamped the twinkle twinkle sentiment from the Little Twinkle stamp set. I stamped this in Night of Navy. I also stamped the hearts image from the Little Elephant stamp set with Real Red.



I then stamped the two little elephants from the Little Elephant stamp set in Basic Gray on Whisper White and punched them out with the new Elephant Builder Punch.



I used an old alphabet die set to cut the ‘Ella’ out of the Night of Navy Card Stock and used the Twinkle Builder Punch to punch some stars out of Crushed Curry card stock.


I put it all together and voila – frame is ready J
