Sketch Challenge~Ink and Share Scrapbook Blog Hop

Welcome to the 2nd in Ink & Share Scrapbook blog hop,  I am delighted to be taking part  again.

You will have either arrived from  Rebecca Jo’s  post or starting here ~ either way WELCOME .   This month’s theme is  a sketch challenge! ~ we were given a sketch as inspiration. I have never used a sketch for a scrapbook page before so this certainly is a challenge for me!

Once again I have chosen to use a 12 x 12 page – mainly because Stampin’ UP! has 12 x 12 card stock in all its colors which gives me a fantastic choice but also because they have the 12 x 12 Page Protectors and Albums.

Vintage Scrapbook Page ~Ink and Share Blog Hop

I am not new to scrap booking or memory-keeping  but I do find it hard to find the time to dedicate to it, so I am delighted to be taking part  in the Ink & Share Scrapbook blog hop for its very first HOP!

You will have either arrived from  Cheyrl Taylor’s post or starting here ~ either way WELCOME .   This month’s theme is  to use anything that is currently available from Stampin’ UP!  ~ and I have designed  a vintage theme and  chosen to create a 12 x 12 page using Crumb Cake Card and Balmy Blue Card.  I want to show you that your card making supplies can be used for creating scrapbook pages and customized embellishments, quickly and easily.

Memory Keeping or Scrapbooking ~ Stampin’ UP!

Traditional scrap-booking is something I have loved to do over the last 8 – 9 years, more or less since we became grandparents really.  Building up the 12 x 12 pages, adding photos and other memory pieces, but it can take a bit of time to build a page or two.

Memory keeping allows you to build up your album a lot quicker – I have been working thru doing ‘something’ with our wedding photos for several years, with Memories and More I was able to build up about 6 double page 12 x 12 spreads in about 3 hours!

Is it scrapbooking or memory keeping?  ~ does it really matter? – lets get those pictures off our phones and into something more permanent and fun to look at! Continue reading

Stampin’ Up Featured Product ~ BIG SHOT

Oh boy ……………  do I love my Big Shot – from the very first time Stampin’ Up! started to sell it in 2008 to the present day it has been a part of my work bench – close and ready to use when needed.  Over the years the die cutter itself has not changed much but the accessories and dies now available are fantastic offering a whole range of designs and techniques, many of which I have shown in various cards and project on this blog.

So I think it is time to revisit the Big Shot – if you don’t have one you should certainly make the investment – and if you do but it doesn’t get used much – may be this post will encourage you to dust it off – purchase a few new products to use with it and make it your best buddy again!
