A Trip Down Memory Lane!

As this year is close to an end I have been thinking a lot about this year and years past! This year I have jumped into blogging more than I ever have before! Sometimes I struggle with what to write or if my project is good enough but sharing what I love makes it worth it! I have a new project to share today as well as taking a step back to see some from earlier this year!

Today’s project is a scrapbook page. I don’t scrapbook often since just one page can take me ages!! 😳 Next year I will be giving Memories & More a closer look for memory keeping so I can have my photos off of my phone and out to share! This scrapbook page all started with the Powder Pink 12×12 sheet from preorder from the upcoming Occasions 2018.

     I was inspired by my photo from Prom in 2007, the color of my dress is pretty close to Fresh Fig. It was my junior prom and my dress was custom made for me. It had a beautiful bow down the back and I just loved it!

I used the flowery cluster from Wood Words stamp set to add just a little rustic but girly look to the page. The only ink I used is the Fresh Fig from the 2017-2019 In-Colors. This scrapbook page really is a collection of some of my favorite products from the Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalog! The Wood Texture and Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper, the Stitched Shape dies and the Fresh Fig ribbon! I love how the ribbon is so easy to move to where you want it. I put Tear Tape adhesive on the back so I could fold the ribbon a little to make the ruffled look. Also never be afraid to layer different designer series paper onto each other. Finishing touches as always is some Wink of Stella on the flowers and some pearls!

I took a trip down memory lane looking at my old school pictures! It’s amazing how much life can change, but usually for the better! Here’s a look at some of my favorite creations from this year!

The first set is some of my favorite 3D projects! The first one is a little pocket that holds a small flat Nutella packet. The second project is just a fun decor piece that I used an embroidery hoop and designer series paper. The last 3D project is a gift bag for some birthday goodies! I used the treat bags die in a different way that what is normally used.

Last but of course not least! These three cards are my top 3 favorites from this year! I think I stepped out of my comfort zone with layering shapes and adding texture. The funny thing is all three are all kind of the same card sketch! Oops! Haha I guess that was my favorite style this year! Check out the embossing on the designer series paper! Isn’t that a fun technique?

Well off to go finish helping my dad paint! Can’t wait until OnStage Atlanta in April! Crossing my fingers for Display Stamper again!

I hope you have a great weekend and make sure to get a little inky!

Keep Stampin’!
