Speaking of the New Release Party...
It is going to be so fun so be sure to join us on Thursday May 13th on the SCS Forums for Challenges, Chatting, Games and Prizes!! It is going to be A LOT of fun!!
Two new kits were partially revealed on the Ippity blog today!
One of them is called A Moment in Time. It is the most amazing scrapbook kit and I just love it!! So I decided I just had to put together a layout to showcase many of the stamps that are in that kit!
I scrapped a layout from Mother's Day this past Sunday. I used one of the Unity Scrapbook Sketches (USCSSC04) that I hadn't had a chance to work with yet! It was the perfect sketch for what I needed!
In total I have used FIVE of the stamps from the Moment in Time set. I will point them out in some of the closeups I have for you below! I know this is not your typical Mother's Day themed paper, but it was all I had to match all the bright blues that many of us were wearing. So a few flowers later, I think I feminized it well enough!! LOL!
Here you can see three of the stamps from this set. One is the frame with the hearts, and then one is the "Love you yesterday" sentiment. I used my Copics to coordinate it with my DP. Then if you look to the right of the paper panel you will see to bracket shapes. Well that is a portion of a "top note" style square that is filled with script writing! It will be so versatile to use for many projects!
This is a gorgeous journaling block that was perfect for my family's Mother's Day get together!
To create the scalloped border I used one half of one of the stamps from this set. It is a cute little date stamp in a circle. It is so cute with the tiny polka dots in negative space! I used SU's inks to ink them in coordinating colors. Shown here are Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, and So Saffron.
And here is the other half of that stamp! It is the perfect sentiment to record the date of an event you are scrapping! It says..."some moments you don't want to forget."
Here is one last peek at the whole layout! I am so happy to be scrapping again!! And what makes it even better is having awesome stamps to use on my layouts!!
Next I have my project using the Delightful Little Things set...
I was channeling Eva and Karen while I was working on this project! It reminds me of some of their amazing projects which inspired me to try this! I used Webster's Pages for all the beautiful decorations on the DP. But the stamp that I used on this project is the sentiment. It is such a wonderful phrase that I plan to keep right next to me to remind me of the darkness we sometimes have to endure to have true beauty! I love that!
Here is s closeup for you of the sentiment. I highlighted some of the words with a Copic marker. Can you see how I also cut out some of the images on the DP with an exacto to allow them to be layered onto the frame that holds the sentiment?
To emphasize the words I created an additional frame using two nested Labels 11 Nestabilities. The Kraft pearls are from Zva!
Well that is all I have for you today!! Enjoy the rest of the hop! You are headed now to the amazingly creative Lisa Arana's blog! Have a great day and be sure to come back tomorrow for the last day of our Sneak Peeks!!
May your bucket overflow with the right balance of light and darkness
to enjoy the beauty that can come from both!
