Thanks for joining in for the A*Muse Consultant Blog Hop. This month we doing something different and are showing scrapbook layout. I started out as a scrapbooking and slowing became interested in card making. I hope you enjoy your visit to my blog.
For my layout I am going back about over 8 years ago to my bridal shower. I'm starting a scrapbook all about me. I've devoted my other layouts to my kids and now I'm going to focus a few on me.
I didn't like how the layout turned out when i took a picture of it so i decided to scan it.
I started with Blackberry cardstock and added the outline marigold from Marvelous Marigolds to the background to make my own patterned paper. I stamped it in Heather ink. I also colored one of the marigolds with my Copic markers. I added two hearts from Hearts a Plenty covered in Diamond Glitter. For my journal block i used the dotted line stamp from Personal Stationery and added the Smile sentiment from the Hand Scripted stamp set.
I was planning a second layout but set it aside because I haven't quite got it where i want it yet. I decided to share it in it half complete state. For this layout, the colors were inspired from my skirt (see second picture). We were at a friends wedding that was the weekend after my bridal shower. I caught the bouquet and my fiance (now husband) caught the garter. He was having a little too much fun putting it up my leg. For the layout i made the stripes using a stripe from Mad for Plaids with Papaya, Orange and Cherry ink. I added a subtle leaf image to the background of the Papaya cardstock with an image from Beautiful Botanicals inked in Papaya. I'm come back to post the final layout.
