It is that time again! My monthly blog hop for Scrapbooking. This month’s theme is Layered Up.
For those of you that do not know what a Blog Hop is, let me explain. Monthly, I will be posting a set of scrapbook pages and then a link to the next blog for you to see their pages. If you click on each link, you will eventually be brought back to my page, and that way you will know you saw them all. Or you can click the names listed below to go to each blog separately. I hope you enjoy this monthly feature on my blog.
Please comment and give me feedback. I want my blog to be a place where you can come and get inspired!
I started by stamping the page’s title from Happiest of Birthdays stamp set on Smoky Slate Cardstock in Misty Moonlight Classic Ink. This color combination is so soothing.
Next, I stamped with Smoky Slate, Misty Moonlight, and Seaside Spray Classic Inks different leaves from the Forever Fern stamp set. I used the Forever Flourishing Dies to cut them out of Smoky Slate Cardstock.
I attached those die-cut leaves onto Basic Gray Cardstock and tore around the edges to make the page elements. So beautiful!
Next, I tore a border in the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper. This sets the stage for placing the page elements. I attached that border onto Basic Gray Cardstock.
The next step in the process, for me, was to add two lengths of 1/4″ Metallic Seaside Spray Ribbon onto both pages of the two-page spread. The sparkle doesn’t show well in the photos, but it is truly beautiful.
I decided to add flat dots to the pages. I used the Playing with Patterns Resin Dots and colored them with the Dark Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends Marker. Stampin’ Blends can be used to color a myriad of embellishments in the color of your choice. Isn’t that incredible!
I chose to mat some of my pictures with In Good Taste Designer Series Paper for variety. The patterned paper is great at mats, as well as accents, and borders.
I also used some torn DSP, Metallic Ribbon, and Resin Dots for the journaling block.
Lastly, I placed the page title, which was fuss-cut, onto the page with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Here are the finished pages, individually, and side by side. I hope you enjoyed the process and the end results.

Really like the botanical ‘feel’ one your layout. It is wonderfully gender neutral.
