Go For Greece Blog Hop - March 2018

Evening all,

Hope you are well.

I'm popping by on a blog hop with the amazing 'Go For Greece' training group. Since October I've been part of an awesome training programme to gain knowledge & in site in how to achieve the incentive trip that Stampin' Up! has to offer.

Kylie Bertucci gives some amazing training to demonstrators world wide! I've been part of some other groups that has been started by her like 'Random Acts of Kindness' where cards go to random people within the group from all over the world. I've recently been in the amazing 'Love it Chop it' group where you learn to cut that paper you have around the house!! haha! Well I was inspired to cut some paper in preparation for the 'Onstage event' that Stampin' Up! run for demonstrators & so this is what I created:

Do you ever go through phases of using paper? I sometimes get so excited about using stamp sets that I sometimes forget about the paper. But then I'm also a scrapbooker & so the thought of cutting 12x12 does scare me sometimes as I think about the pictures I could maybe put on the page. Sometimes you've just got to get over that hurdle & do it!! Here is a close up:


I love layering the 2" circle punch with the starburst punch, I used so saffron paired with pool party & inked the sentiment with dapper denim. I then added a little bit of very vanilla trim which gives this swap some texture, here is the other colour combo: 

I was inspired to take part in this week's Just Add Ink challenge: 
I hope you've enjoyed what you've seen here & don't forget to check out the others involved in this amazing hop in the below list. For some people this is the first blog hop they are part of so don't forget to leave them a comment so they feel the love :D

See you soon,

Anyway, I'm going to be showing regular scrapbook projects with an amazing Blog Hop team, I'm so privileged to have been asked to be part of this awesome team of demonstrators from all over the world!

The lovely Pam Staples who is part of the hop created this lovely sketch to follow:

I really enjoyed creating this project & I've used some sneak peeks that will be coming out in January when the Spring/Summer catalogue goes live. The first picture is a my work in progress of the design before I was happy. I used the lovely Petal Passion suite: 

Here is what the finished page looks like, I used the co-ordinating stamp set to create the flowers & the bottom of the page, mounted the pictures/journaling in Rose Red & Perfect Plum. A little …

I then picked out one of the lovely black designer series paper from the Petal Passion suite & then I drew a blank slightly. I was rummaging through all my photos & believe me I have tons - even with running & going to a monthly scrapbooking class!!
