I know you have lots of hopping to do, but if you'll indulge me just a bit I have some thoughts & SNS info for you to start with today. Are you a card maker? into scrapbooking? a paper crafter? Did you know that Sparkle N Sprinkle stamps & products are great for all of these types of projects (and More!) And did you also know that Sparkle N Sprinkle will be expanding it's exposure this year by attending lots of the big scrapbooking shows? If you're a scrapbooker - SNS is looking forward to meeting you! If you're not into scrapping, these shows have so many products that are great to use in any type of paper crafting; you'll definitely want to check one out! So if SNS isn't coming to your local stamping show this year, be sure to check them out at one of the many scrapbooking shows they'll be at this year. A list of all the shows SNS will be attending can always be found on the Convention Calendar on the website. Check it out - will SNS be near you soon? Come see us! (Remember you can click on any bold word to be taken directly to more info!)
So with that in mind, I thought I try a floral scrapbook page for this month. I have to tell you, I'm not a scrapbooker. But I love how this turned out!
Now for any of you "non-scrappers"... I know SNS has a big following of card makers out there, but I'd like you to consider something. If you're anything like me, you put lots and lots of time & yourself into your beautiful creations. Why not put some of that same time into making something that will be saved and treasured for many years to come! When you think about it, kinda beats wondering if the person you give your card to keeps it and enjoys it more than "once". Why not give it a try?!
Floral Set 270. I chose lovely subtle peaches & aqua and the wonderful coordinated sayings from the Hummingbird & Flowers set 451 (I love these inspirational sayings). They're highlighted in gorgeous Jamaican Dream embossing powder. And that great title saying was done in sparkling Sangria Star embossing powder from the new Tuscany powder line for the perfect "attention getter".
Gorgeous Spellbinders lace pieces frame the whole page and delicate little pearls accent the edge of the designer paper. I'll admit, it did take me quite a while to put this together, but remember, it's a first attempt on my part. And more importantly, I'm slow.....I fuss ALOT lol! But I'm really pleased with how this turned out and am really glad that I put the effort into something that I know is going to be looked at over and over for many years to come!
Full instructions for this layout can be found in the SNS Art Gallery here. Don't forget to leave some comments before you hop along! Then it's time to hop on over to the Charlene's lovely blog to see what she has in store for you on her blog. Stop back late Saturday and I'll have the winners of the hop posted with another project using this same pretty frame for a great home decor project. Hope to see you then!
Until next time,
