It's all about me for our Scrapbooking Hop

Hello and Welcome to our First Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop for 2021.

This is a marvellous group of seriously talented creative scrappers who use Stampin' Up! products for our Memory Keeping.  Make sure you keep hopping all the way around to be inspired!!  


This Month our theme was presented by the talented Mai, and it is Just Me Scrap Yourself

My Page does include my husband, but really it's about me and the best 30 years of my life with this gorgeous man!!  

Apparently the 30th Wedding Anniversary is a Pearl theme!!  So I've used our Pearls (of course) as well as our new Pearlescent Specialty Paper for the flowers (swoon - love this paper) which have been punched using the brilliant Strawberry Punch and stamped with Sahara Sand and the coordinating Sweet Strawberry stamp set. You can actually get these as a bundle with a 10% discount.  

The background of my title and journaling panels was stamped with the textured stamp from Woven Heirlooms with Petal Pink and Blushing Bride, and also the words stamped in Cherry Cobbler using some of the gorgeous font from the Heal Your Heart Sale-a-bration stamp set.  Once again the amazing Playful Alphabet dies combined with the Foam Sheet Adhesive work a treat to make my title become the star!!  

Did you notice the cute stitched edging on my title panel?  I've used the lovely Stitched With Whimsy dies along with the Stitched Rectangle dies.  The little Garden Green swirls with the flowers comes from the Butterfly Beauty dies.

The last touch was a couple of the great stamps from the Sale-a-bration hostess stamp set Punch Party and the coordinating punches - Rectangle Postage Punch and the Heart Punch Pack.  Overall this is quite a simple page with few embellishments.

Up next is the totally amazing Alison and her page!  

Here are all of the participants in case you get lost along the way!!
