Scrapbook Blog Hop - June 2018

Good Morning Everyone,
It's lovely to see you here. It's the Scrapbook Blog Hop & this month we have a theme challenge! If you've been hopping round then welcome, if you've started here then hello & remember to see what everyone else has created by clicking on the names below my post. 

Here is this month's theme: 
I really wanted to use some of the new papers I received this past week, so I found some photos that were from a Mexican evening out & new I could use the Brights Designer Series Paper Stack to go with the photos. So this is what I created: 
I used the Nature's Poem Designer Series Paper for my backing paper, I then added some Call Me Clover card stock, Poppy Parade, Gorgeous Grape & Daffodil Delight Brights DSP & some Daffodil Delight Cardstock for the banner. Here is a close up of me getting this all ready: 
With the banner I cut some scrap & using the stitched oval die I ran it through the big shot part way to create the perforated tag shape: 
I still had some more pictures from this birthday party so I decided to create another page using the same layout, but I flipped it so that when the pages are next to each other in my scrapbook they mirror each other. Here is the other page: 
I really liked this picture of me & my OH, so I couldn't help but add a little comment saying 'Sombrero SNAP!' on the little banner, here is a close up: 
And just a little placement going on again: 
Thanks for stopping by & see you again next month :)

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 …

Well the colours didn't stop me I picked out the ink pads Basic Black, Calypso Coral, Emerald Envy & Lemon Lime Twist (which is borderline green...hehe). 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!! 
I had left my scrapbooking album at home so couldn't remember what I had already scrapped so that really fr…
