Welcome to July’s Stamp ‘n’ Hop.
This month our theme is Favourite Designer Speciality Paper. This fits in well with this month’s special offer from Stampin’ Up! which is buy 3 packs from the list and get another pack free. I decided to order 4 different packs so I had plenty of choice to choose from.
I chose Garden Impressions as my favourite DSP. These papers are very colourful and I can use them with my favourite colour Melon Mambo.
For this blog I decided to do a double spread scrapbook page. I was looking through a box of photos to scrapbook and came across 3 photos of my daughter and niece.
Scrapbook Page 1
I started off with a Basic Black 12 x 12 page as I had some of this retired card stock left. I then cut the pinker DSP into strips to make a back ground for the main photo. The photo was mat layered using Melon Mambo card stock and Basic Black card stock. I already knew I wanted Cousins as the title so I used the Large Letters Framelits and the Daisy punch. I then used the Whisper White watercolour pencil to add a line to each pencil.

Again I started off with 12×12 Basic Black card stock. This time I used the DSP off cuts from page 1 as the background. The photos were mat layered using Melon Mambo again but as I was laying the page out the photos moved so that they were at an angle so I decided to stick them down. Flowers from the DSP were then fussy cut and stuck to the page using Stampin Dimensionals. I then finished the page off with some journaling.
