Scrapbook Pages on Show

OK as promised here are the two scrapbook pages I entered into the Katherine Show.

My apologies for the poor quality photo, I was in a hurry to take photos of them before dropping them off for judging. I promise to devise a more suitable place and way to take photos. OK now this page is a first for me on a number of levels - it has a white background for a start which is so not my style, and its about me! Even so I really enjoyed creating this page. I've used a new stamp set called Scribble This which is being released on 1st August in the Stampin' Up! Spring Mini Catalogue. Isn't it awesome - I absolutely love it, I'm already planning the next project to use it on. I've stamped with StazOn ink and then watercoloured using an Aquapainter. Ink colours used are Cameo Coral and Tempting Turquoise. The photo is matted on Cameo Coral card stock and everything else is Whisper White. I used dimensionals to raise the flowers. The journalling was done using the Black Stampin Write Journaler. As I didnt have an alphabet stamp set that I felt suited this page I have cheated and used Making Memories Rub-ons, I also added a little (non- Stampin Up!) bling on the flowers.

Here's the second page:

Also not a great photo, but anyway... I did this page back in May for a home business expo that I had a Stampin' Up! display at. It is a 100% Stampin' Up! page using the Looks Like Spring Stamp set, Spring Flowers designer series papers, and the Spring Bouquet Flower Punch - which as you can see all co-ordinate - which I love! The ink colours I used are Mellow Moss, So Saffron, Pretty In Pink and Chocolate Chip. I also used the Be Happy and So Very (thanks Helene)stamp sets for the words.

So hopefully the judges will like them, but that doesn't really matter in the end, I'm just glad I had the guts to have a go! The point was to get the Stampin' Up! products out there...

You can leave me a comment and let me know what you think, or if you'd like more info on purchasing any of the products featured just send me an email - my address is at the top of this page.

I'm sure you will positive feedback on these pages, they are great! I really like the one on yourself and am very surprised you used white backgroud, it certainly looks good. Breanna looks good set among the flowers. Well done!!
Good luck in the show xm
