Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop-Monochromatic

Welcome to this month’s blog hop with the Scrapbooking Global Stampin’ Up! group where we use Stampin’ Up! product to create memory pages. You are visiting Jenn Charles from the United States. I haven’t participated in a blog hop with this group in a while so I’m excited to be with them again.

This month’s blog hop is a challenge for me. Monochromatic schemes use different tones from the same angle on the color wheel (the same hue). Monochromatic color schemes are guaranteed to suit each other because they all come from the same family. Sounds easy enough right? But I’m a colorful monkey! I love lots of color! Thankfully Stampin’ Up! is full of designer series papers that all match perfectly together.

The pattern papers I used here to make the different tones of gray were Tasteful Touches Designer Series Paper and Peony Garden Designer Series Paper. They both have beautiful tones of all 3 grays that Stampin’ Up! carries. Basic Gray, Gray Granite and Smoky Slate.

To give the flowers a little texture, I ran the cardstock through the big shot using the Tasteful Texture 3D embossing folder and then punched them out with the small bloom punch.

The title is die cut using some retired dies but we have some adorable dies called Playful Alphabet that will work perfectly for scrapbook pages. I have them linked below.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Up next is Lisa Mackey. I know she will have something creative to show you all. You can click on the next button or hop around by using the links below.

    Such a fun and cool layout! I like how you made the horizontal strips that mimics the photo strips!

    Je n’avais pas reconnu les papiers au départ. C’est top. J’aime beaucoup cette page. Ces papiers sont vraiment très doux!

      Merci. Je pense que lorsque vous utilisez de plus petits morceaux de papier de modèle, ils peuvent tous regarder plus doux.

  3. I love the way the strips of papers reflect the photo strips! Such a clever page and amazing idea with the centre photos being in colour to give an amazing pop! So much to love!!
