January Scrapbook Sunday Blog Hop

Happy Sunday everyone, even if it is a bit wet & miserable here in the UK. It's great to see you here for another Blog Hop with an amazing group of people from all over the world. If you've come from Charlet's page it's great to see you, if you've started here then hit the next icon at the bottom of the page & you can see all 14 of the talented creations.


This month's theme was a colour challenge of Black, Coral & Green. 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 frustrated me! I then stumbled across some pictures from an historic site we visited back in September, then it was just choosing which colours to mount on etc. That's enough of me waffling here is what I created: 


It was fun to explore tunnels that are under the train station in my home town of Bristol, below is some close up shots which I will explain. 


1) Is a close up of all the railway stations, some of them are no longer in use & some still are. Obviously we went on the train, so where the pearls are is the route we took from the top is Avonmouth - the bottom left one which is Bristol Temple Meads. 
2) I used the Perfect Day Memories & More kit, which I totally forgot used the colours I had picked - was looking through the catalogue to give me inspiration & then had a lightbulb moment!! I pulled these cards out & used one of the Emerald Envy 3x4 cards for my journaling - using all the colours :)
3) One of the 4x6 Memories & More cards had this lovely Makes Me Smile sentiment so I got the 2" circle punch & layered that on some coral designer series paper from the Daisy Delight suite & punched it with the Starburst punch & raised the lovely sentiment up with dimensionals. 

Thanks for popping by & I hope to see you again next month on 17th March.

Scrapbooking Blog Hop - January 2019

Hi there, it's lovely to see you again for another Scrapbooking Blog Hop. There are several other scrapbook lovers to browse through at the end of this blog post, or if you've come from another blog 'hi' & I hope you are enjoying perusing through these amazing pages.

Last month was pretty hectic, so we decided not to run a hop, but we are back with awesome pages to share with you. This month's theme is Winter/December Daily. So, I did do December Daily last month, but I've not yet printed off my photos to put into a mini album, once I do I will show you! So I  decided to do a lovely winter page from a couple of years ago! I'm terrible for not sticking & completing a year of photos!! Anyway, here is my scrapbook page:


I've been really enjoying creating scrapbook pages with just 1 photo! It's only really been in the past year since hopping that I've done this. So I used some scrap bits of paper & layered them under the photo. For the …

This month's theme is 'FIRST', I really had a bit of a mental block originally, but then when I was looking at my photos during my scrapbooking workshop I found pictures from a few months ago of a walk that we haven't been on before! So voila 'my first.' I love exploring things that are on my doorstep, I follow quite a few local photographers on Instagram & one posted photos of Bluebell&…

This month we have a colour challenge of: 
I had to go & look through some of my pages already as my parents are currently up so had a lovely day at a flower show yesterday so will show you those photos in a future scrapbook hop. I hope you enjoy this scrapbook page that is from our holiday to the Lake District almost 2 years ago! It was a glorious day after finding out that Brexit had happened here in the UK. Anyway enough of my waffling here is what I created: 

I use the 'Remarkable You' stamp set to create the big leaves & then used my blender pen to shade in, I've also used 'Jars of Love' for some more foliage & the 'Playful Backgrounds' in Bermuda Bay I think!! On Soft …
