Jems Blog Hop: 'Hello' Layout

It's that time again! You should have come to me from the lovely and talented Sarah-Jane, but if you didn't, not to worry, you can join the blog hop at any time and follow along until you end up back where you started. Last month's hop was so inspirational, you'll definitely want to see what everyone's been up to this month!  

This month's theme is the new 2016-18 'In Colour'; a collection of five colours that co-ordinate beautifully and are part of the Stampin' Up! family of colours for two years. I thought I'd go back to my first love for this month's theme, and use the colours to create a scrapbook layout.


I started with an A4 sheet of Whisper White cardstock, and stamped the background using the 'Gorgeous Grunge' (told you it was my favourite!) and 'Awesomely Artistic' stamp sets with four of the five In Colours: Dapper Denim, Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo and Sweet Sugarplum. I love the ink splatter stamps - perfect splatters every time and no mess!


I matted my photo with a square of Peekaboo Peach card and adhered it over the background stamping. I coloured two strips of white glitter tape (which is now retired, but I would think the Glimmer Paper would work just as well) with Dapper Denim ink and tucked them under the matted photo. I die cut the word 'hello' from Dapper Denim card and a butterfly from Vellum card which I added to the bottom corner of the photo, along with a few loops of metallic silver thread. Finally, I added a few white and silver sequins over the stamped ink splatters.

And that's it! A fairly simple layout, but I'm pleased with it :) Your next stop is the fabulous Sarah - enjoy the rest of the hop and I'll see you soon!

Love how you've used the colours on one project dispelling the myth that In Colors don't go together. Well done.
