I hope you have enjoyed the blog hops that I’ve posted over the past couple days. Now on to the second in my series of Stamp Sundays. My daughter chose the Aspire Stamp Set for me this week. It was a great selection because I bought this specificaly to do some of her dance pictures and yet the stamp set went in my stash and the pictures have yet to be scrapped. So now is the time!
Supplies used: Bo Bunny Midnight Frost Collection Pack, CTMH Aspire Stamp Set, CTMH Pacifica ink, KI Memories flourish borders, CTMH Designer Brads – Rhinestone, and Bling Assortment. Sketch from Sketches for Scrapbooking Volume 8.
I just love scrapbooking dance pictures! A friend and I decided to set up a backdrop and take our own dance pictures. I’m not the best photographer but I know my children and the traditional pictures seem so posed. I like pictures that capture their personalities so I’ve decided I’m the best person for this. I love these pictures so much that I have put off scrapbooking them. I think the layout turned out nice and my daughter will be happy to see the finished product of her choice of stamp.

Supplies used: KI Memories Surprise Collection paper, Making Memories chipboard flower, Fiskars border punch, Provo Craft alpha rubons, and K&Company adhesive chipboard.
This was my layout from the March Challenge at Scrap Our Stash that I forgot to post. The challenge was “Spring Cleaning” – meaning dig something out from your stash, dust it off, and use it! I pulled out all the stops with this layout. Everything I used is old, old, old and I literally had to dust off my border punch! I used a sketch from My Little Sketch Book. I just love sketches! I’ve found some great sites lately and plan to use them more. They make scrapbooking so quick and easy!

Flutter by Wednesday #90 - anything goes (butterfly/fairy/angel)
Crafty Creations – glitter & bling!
Papertake Weekly Challenge – sketch #31
Corrosive Challenge – favorite things
Glitter and bling are among my favorite things! Well, among them and high on the list – really how do I pick just two!! I have seen many cards done where the papers are all matted but this is the first time I have done it and I have to say I like mine just as much as I like everyone else’s! I think I will be doing more of this. I’m not too worried about running out of paper. As I was making this I started wondering – does coloring get hard as you get older?? I don’t have many stamps to color in but I really like the look of them. Apparantly, I don’t know how to color! I guess that’s something for me to work on this year. I just never thought of it as a hard thing to do and now I’m starting to think that it is. I just love this fairy that was sent to me. I might have to start buying more stamps to color because I don’t have any detailed ones. I tend to stick to the simple stamps or two-step stamping because it’s faster. It is faster but I really am liking the colored look. This could be a good idea for my Christmas money. Well, enough rambling. It’s taken me long enough to make this card without prolonging it any further. I hope you enjoy it! Oh – just one more thing – the stamped image was sent to me and I wanted it cut smaller but I could not get it cut straight for anything – therefore I distressed the edges! It’s a great technique to fool the eye!
