Create memories

Hello! I hope all is going well in your neck of the woods! After a few wild weather days in Perth, I can see a few sunrays peeking through the clouds this morning!

Today I will be sharing my very first Scrapbook page! I have always found a 12″ x 12″ size piece of paper very daunting! To be honest if it wasn’t for the pack of 12″ x 12″ Basic Black Cardstock included in a my recent Artisan Design Team Box, I’m not sure that I would’ve ever given it a go. I was also inspired by fellow Demonstrators on Instagram (@cindyschuster and @stampwithbrenda) and I think you will too!

After MANY tweaks, I finally settled on this layout and I love it! you are more than welcome to CASE my design (tag me on Instagram @stampingwithmelodie) because I would love to see what you do!
I love the look of White heat embossing on pitch Black cardstock and not one to shy away from fussy cutting, I used the floral images from the Perfectly Penciled DSP to add more monochromatic layers. I also added my favourite tone-on-tone layer with Basic Black leave die cuts.
I thought that the Mint Macaron ‘create memories’ die cut circle from the Today is the Day Memories & More card pack worked beautifully with the woodgrain pattern from the Texture Chic DSP. I also thought that the woodgrain would echo the tree bark in the photo. To bring in a little more
The sentiment was White heat embossed on to Mint Macaron cardstock to bring in more Mint Macaron. For Everything Fancy Sequins and Black & White Gingham Ribbon finishes off the page.

How did I go? I would love to hear from you! I also want to remind you that there is still time to earn FREE Sale-a-Bration products with a qualifying order (more items have been added). If you are in Australia and do not yet have a Demonstrator that you support, I would really appreciate your support and I would very much love to grow my team (the Mellow Stampers) and make it the best team yet!

Thank you so much for stopping by and happy stamping until next time!
