Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop – Black and White Photos

Posted on

Welcome to March Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop. You are visiting Jenn Charles with BFF Stampers. I hope this is a nice break from the craziness in the world right now. Be inspired and create something with the extra time you have at home. So far I’ve cleaned out and organized my pantry so I could see what food I actually have and if I really need to go to the store or not. Next up is working on decluttering my crafty space. I’m looking for ways to make it easier and faster to craft. If you have any fantastic organizing tips, please let me know. Now on to the hop!

This month’s theme is using Black and White Photos. I searched around in an old box of photos and came up with this gem. It’s my niece who is now 19 years old! I also found a photo of my beautiful grandmother at age 18 but I was so bummed because it was stuck to another photo and it had torn. I don’t know when that happened but that just stinks!

I’m using the Forever Blossoms Bundle for today’s scrapbook page. I loved all the champagne foil and Petal Pink. I thought it was perfect for this photo.

To make the pink scripty background, I dry embossed a piece of whisper white cardstock with the Scripty embossing folder and then ran a versamark pad across the words. Then I heat embossed clear embossing powder on top. After that, I sponged it with petal pink ink. I love how it turned out!

I did use a couple other fun elements on this page. I used the Beautiful Layers Thinlits to create the doily looking piece and I used Nature’s Roots dies for that big leaf.

Thank you for hopping along with us. Up next is Julia Quinn. I can’t wait to see what she created. Stay safe out there. Your BFF, Jenn


Stamp ‘N Hop – All About the Girls/Boys

Posted on

Welcome to March Stamp ‘N Hop Blog hop! You are visiting Jenn Charles with BFF Stampers. This month the theme is all about Girls/Boys.

I wasn’t really sure where to go with this theme. I wanted to make a scrapbook page but it just wasn’t working out. So I took a stamp set that I think is versatile for boys and girls and made two cards to prove my point. Of course, you can use any colors for girls or boys; my best friend has a son who’s favorite color is pink. But for this example, let’s assume subtles are for girls and Regals are for boys.

I’ve used the stamp set called Waterfront. On both cards I’ve used Balmy Blue cardstock but I’ve also used Petal Pink as the base card on the subtle girl card.

The soft pink card made me feel like it’s a warm sunset whereas the more masculine card makes me think of a mountain man.

EIther way, this stamp set is very versatile and can be easily be used for simple stamping. I hope you liked my cards!

Thank you for hopping along with us this month. Up next is Sandra. I can’t wait to see her take on this theme!

Your BFF,

Jenn

Global Stamping Friends – All Things Spring

Posted on

Welcome to this month’s Blog Hop with the Global Stamping Friends. You are visiting Jenn Charles with BFF Stampers. The theme this month is all about Spring. Pastels and Flowers, Easter and all things new are what remind me of spring.

Today I decided to use the flowered paper that was just released in the 2nd Sale-A-Bration (SAB) brochure. You can earn it with a $50 purchase. All items in the SAB brochures are WHILE SUPPLIES LAST, so don’t delay when you fall in love with it.

The paper is called Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper. The paper is white with Rose Gold Foil and Silver Foil accents. I used Blushing Bride pink and Pear Pizzazz green to color these flowers to make them more Spring like in my opinion.

I used Sponge Daubers on the flowers and a Blender Pen and an ink pad for the leaves. Not a stampin’ Blend marker, but blender pens that have a specialized solution for easier blending. I just squeeze a little ink into the lid of my ink pad and dab it with the blender pen. A little bit goes a long way!

I heat embossed the sentiment in white from the Honey Bee Stamp set. The white background was made using the Layered Leaves 3D embossing folder.

I hope you were inspired to be crafty this spring. Up next is Tricia Butts. Below is a list of everyone participating. Please hop along and leave comments letting us know if you were inspired. We love to hear feedback 🙂
