Stampin' Up! Corporate Blog Post | Follow Your Art



Hello everyone and welcome to  another Stampin' Up! Corporate Blog post. 


As part of the Artisan Design Team, each Artisan is asked to design and share 3 blog posts throughout the year for the Stampin’ Up! Blog/Facebook page. These are shared via the notes area of the Stampin’ Up! official page so be sure to check it out and while you are there give the page a like to ensure you don’t miss out on anything shared from Stampin’ Up! 
Here is my post that was published earlier this week, I hope you find it to be inspiring


Today I am sharing a scrapbook layout featuring products from the Follow Your Art Suite (Suite Bundle item #152181). The bright patterns and fun images of craft supplies in this suite are perfect for documenting the fun crafting times I spend with my kids.


When memory keeping I often want to use more photos than what I can fit on a traditional scrapbook page so accommodate this I like to also create a pocket style page to go with a 12x12 layout, which is what I have created on this occasion.


Firstly for the traditional layout, to add some colour to the background I started with a panel of the Coastal Cabana patterned paper from the Follow Your Art Designer Series Paper (item #149489). Designer Series Paper is an easy way to add colour and patterns to your scrapbook layouts.


To add more colour and texture to the white portion of the background I’ve added a collage of Embossing Paste (item #141979), some stamped sequin images from the It Starts With Art (item #149303) and ink spatters created with a Coastal Cabana Stampin Write Marker (item #147157)
Once I had mounted my photos on some Whisper White cardstock (item # 106549) I layered some more panels of Follow Your Art Designer Series Paper and a die cut ribbon from the Arts and Crafts Dies (item #149580)


Next, using blends I coloured in the ribbon image from It Starts With Art (item #147157) and the pot of paintbrushes image from Crafting Forever (item #151231) and added them to the page along with some die cut buttons and a die cut paperclip with a bow of Whisper White Bakers Twine as the finishing touch.


In my pocket page I’ve use more of the Follow your Art Designer Series Paper and have embellished the pocket panels with more Arts and Craft die cuts and coloured images from It Starts With Art and Crafting Forever.


I also wanted to include some journaling in this page and the letters from Lined Alphabet were perfect for creating a heading on my journaling card.

Thank you for joining me. I hope you have got some inspiration from this project today.
