Celebrating our hobbies - scrapbook blog hop


Hello and Welcome to Handmade by Julia Quinn


Today I'm sharing in a fun scrapbooking blog hop!!  This group is international and they have so much fantastic inspiration to share with you.  


This month our theme for the hop is all about our Hobbies!!  And the lovely Lisa designed the theme for us.


Although my main hobby is actually papercraft, or reading or cryptic crosswords, I have scrapped my husband (and family) and their love of fishing and boating on our local river.


And of course, you must use the fantastic Gone Fishing bundle for this page!!  


This title from the stamp set is just PERFECT!!  (There was only 1 fish caught on this day!)


For the background, I've used the gorgeous Let's Go Fishing paper.  I took it up a notch by stamping the watery image randomly over the paper, and also using a blending brush and blue ink as an anchorage point for the photos.  


I've matted all my photos using Night of Navy cardstock and used the Night of Navy marker for the journalling of the date and place.  


And I love the way the fabulous In Colour Glossy dots look with this page.  


The More Dazzle paper worked a treat to look a bit like the bream in the photo.  

Make sure you keep hopping to see lots more amazingness celebrating hobbies.

  5. Beautiful layout! I love how you added the little waves and blended ink to the dsp. I often don't think of doing anything to pattern paper but it adds so much. I've got to give it a try.

  6. Fantastic layout Julia! Really love the background and use of the suite. I also enjoyed meeting you at OnStage (we did prize patrol together) and I didn’t know at the time you were on the design team for scrapbook global. Which is wonderful. Look forward to seeing more of your scrapbooking.
