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.

Double Scrapbook Page

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.

I hope you have enjoyed visiting my blog today and please do leave comments before you click on the Next button and visit Jacqui to see what her favourite DSP is.
