Sand & Sea Memory Pages

It's pretty cold in central Ohio this week and a snowstorm is on its way. Fortunately, my plan is to stay in and work and craft the weekend away. I'll even have a couple friends here for crafting. While I do enjoy a beautiful snowfall, I do dream of days by the beach with sunny skies, warm breezes, and shelling. Our Stampin' Up! Sand & Sea Suite make creating beach themed paper crafts easy and fun. Today's post shows a 2-page scrapbook layout featuring the fun beach and seashell products from the Sand & Sea Suite. My Facebook Live video replay below shows you just how I made this layout and includes and couple of different ways you can add color to the beautiful Pearlescent Paper I used for the seashells. I hope you'll take a look at the video and be inspired by my demonstration.

An alternate use for these scrapbook pages would be to frame and display them with your favorite beach day memories. They make wonderful gifts too.

I love the Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper used as the sky and beach for this layout.

The Seaside Seashells 3D Embossing Folder has exquisite detail. Adding a bit of color with Blending Brushes and ink brings out the details even more.

Using DSP in Home Decor Projects

Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper isn't just for card making and scrapbooking. Put it to use in your home decor projects.

Here is my latest home decor project. I had a bare wall in my new home and just couldn't find something I loved for this space. So after 18 months of looking at this bare wall, I started thinking what can I make to fill that space until I find something that really speaks to me, something more permanent. This is what I came up with. I adhered 6 sheets of Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper to 12" x 12" stretched canvases. I love how they turned out, and I had so much fun making them. I found a new way to use some of my Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper for an easy to make home decor project that costs just a few dollars. Now, I have something pretty to look at instead of a bare wall, and am getting lots of compliments on it too. And best of all, it's such an inexpensive project that I can change it out at any time without feeling guilty. I can change it out to coordinate with the seasons, holidays, or new accent pillows if I choose. And when I find something more permanent for this wall, I will likely find a new place for this wall collection.

Pressed Petals for a Special Couple

Today, Friday, October 4th, a special young couple commit themselves to one another as they get married. I'll be attending the wedding of two of my daughter Emily's best friends from Mason High School. Emily is Maid of Honor at Morgan & Lincoln's wedding. I've watched these "kids" and their friendships grow since middle school. I'm happy to be attending this special occasion and am excited to share this gift of love for the new Mr. and Mrs.

Apple Orchard pics & scrapbook pages

Last weekend, my daughter Andrea and sister Joan and I went apple picking. The weather was gorgeous, the outing fun, and the apples delicious. This apple picking venture inspired me to use the Harvest Hellos Stamp Set and coordinating Apple Builder Punch for some awesome projects. Check them out in the recent Facebook Live video below.

Ok, I'm just going to say it now. before you watch the video. This Apple Builder Punch is THE BEST!  I knew I would love it. I just didn't know how much!

(Unfortunately, the internet cut out at the very end of my Facebook Live so the video ends a bit too soon. We can do our best, but don't have control over what the internet may do during a Live video.)
