Stamp ‘N Hop – Color Challenge!

Posted on

Welcome back to Stamp ‘N Hop’s monthly blog hop. You are visiting Jenn Charles with BFF Stampers. This month we have a color challenge. I had so much fun with these colors.

I decided to make my own designer series paper using strips of cardstock in the permitted colors. I loved how it turned out and then I had to find something to go with it! I tried flowers but they just weren’t working out for me. A cake is always the answer, especially to celebrate a birthday!

I used the stamp set called Piece of Cake and the coordinating punch. I embossed the cake stand in silver embossing powder. I just love how it turned out.

I’ve included all the products I’ve used below.

What do you think? Are these some colors you’d like to try out? Leave a comment here and head over to my Facebook page and hit the LIKE button and I’ll mail you 3 cards using the colors from today!

Thank you for hopping along with us today. I hope you were inspired by these bright colors. Up next is Narelle Fasulo. Click the Next arrow below. I know you will see something fabulous!

Your BFF,
Jenn

Stampin’ Up! has some beautiful tree stamp sets but today I am focusing on some wood grain designer series paper that comes in an unexpected pack of paper full of beautiful flowers and vintage looking pieces along with the Rooted in Nature stamp set. The paper is called Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Lots of Greens – CTC238

Posted on

Hi Friends!

We’ve been dying to go back to the beach this summer. It’s been hot and muggy in our little town and we are miserable! But summertime blues have got us down. Our van stopped working and we’ve been busy planning a huge garage sale this weekend as a fundraiser for my daughter’s funding to go on a 6 month mission trip!

I’m taking a break and playing with some greens today for the Casing The Catty Challenge. The designer series paper called Garden Lane is full of beautiful shades of green.

This week we are casing the Garden Lane DSP (use the colours of the DSP as inspiration and layouts from pages 36-38 and 40-41) – Garden Green, Mint Macaron, Mossy Meadow, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Sea Foam, Whisper White from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue.

I’ve chosen to CASE the card on page 41. I’ve changed it up a bit by using a different stamp set.

Page 41 of the Annual Catalog

I’ve used the octopus because it reminded me of the beach I’m missing. Also, I came across these old photos of my now 18 year olds from when they were 12 and holding this tiny octopus.

Aren’t these awesome photos?

Hope you are having a fun summer! Stay Cool!

Jenn


Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop – Travel

Posted on

Welcome to the Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop for July. You are visiting Jenn Charles. This month’s theme is all about Travel!

I don’t travel much so this scrap page was a bit of a challenge for me. I knew I wanted to use these gorgeous flowers though and I’m planning a vacation to Hawaii next year for my 20th anniversary with my husband so I thought I’d make one for that! It’s never too early to start an album.

I’m calling this page, The World Awaits, because well, along with my husband and I, the world is awaiting our vacation! LOL.

This designer series paper is called Pressed Petals Specialty DSP and it has the most beautiful flowers on it. The best part is that it comes with 24 sheets instead of the regular 12 which means 4 of each 12×12 double sided pattern instead of only 2. I love everything about this paper.

Thank you for joining us this month. Next up is Danielle Bennenk or you can hop along to all the other scrapbookers joining us today down below.
