Facebook Friday # 5 Scrapbook Layout

For this weeks Facebook Friday, I asked the group what they would like for me to create. They had three choices: Card Fun Fold, Technique or Scrapbook Layout. 

The votes were pretty much for all three of them. So I decided to create a layout with a technique.  And added a type of card front (journaling section), just not a fun fold.  We may do that next week.


I love the colors on this layout, Bermuda Bay is one of my top 5 in Stampin' Up! colors.  Now while I am not sure which picture I am going to put on this page yet, I know anyone of them would have amazing people.

I am glad they wanted a Scrapbook Layout, I have missed creating these.  I still think we need to preserve our memories using our own handwriting.  I have lots of pictures I wish I knew the story behind them.  That is why I have challenged myself to create at least one page a month.  I may do more, we will see.

I had to use punches, die cuts and stamps to create this page of lovely flowers.  And Stampin' Up! punches are so versatile. No regular stamping on this layout, but I did use a stamp. 

 

I am going to post my video to YouTube, but let me say it is long. I mean it is from Facebook Friday after all, that's my excuse LOL! You might want to grab something to drink and maybe eat, hahaha.  I would love to have you join us next week.

Petal Passion Meets Brusho

One of my favorite product suites from the 2018 Occasions Catalog is Petal Passion.  I especially love the Designer Series Paper, featured in yesterday's blog post, as am I a black and white fan.  I think black is such a classy color, hence "the little black dress".



But for this card, I wanted to concentrate on the Stamp Set and Thinlet bundle.  And add some of our new product, Brusho!!  

I have never worked with Brush, and it's been exciting to learn how use this magical dust.  I used the Brusho as backdrop for my flowers, and then added a little Old Olive with the Stampin' Blend Marker.

I used the little bits from the diecut and scattered them around the card.  Hey, I'm a scrapper at heart and try not to waste, lol.  My friends say I keep way to many "scraps".


I added some softness and texture to the card, by adding vellum against the darkness of the card-base and behind the "trellis" die cut.  Stampin' Up! has some great vellum, it's thick than other vellum's yet looks the same.

Now for the measurements and products used:

 - Petal Palette Clear-Mount Stamp Set &  Petals & More Thinlits Dies 
Pacific Point Cardstock - for the card-base (4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2)
Watercolor Paper (cut at 2 x 3)
Vellum Cardstock (cut at 1 1/2 x 4 1/4)
Pacific Point Classic Stampin' Pad - for sentiment and dot's stamp (stamped once, gradually stamped up the card to right above the vellum)
Old Olive Stampin' Blends Markers Combo Pack
Scrap of Old Olive for Leaf Diecut, Whisper White for Sentiment Diecut
Scrap of Champagne Foil Sheet for "trellis" die cut
Brusho Crystal Colour - I used the Prussian Blue
Aqua Painter
Stampin' Spritzer
Big Shot
Stampin' Dimensionals
Fine-Tip Glue Pen
Fast Fuse
