Colour Creations Flirty Flamingo

 

Stampin' Up Flirty Flamingo Scrapbook Page



Hi Stampin' friends!

This week on the Colour Creations showcase we are flirting with Flirty Flamingo! It is a lovely colour somewhere between pink, red and orange. I have used this colour to pick up some elements in a photograph of my youngest child when she was 3-4 years old, and have made a scrapbook page.

I used the Timeless Tulips Bundle to make some embellishments for the page. The stamp set and punch are available as a Bundle with 10% savings! The Timeless Tulips stamp set is a Distinktive stamp set, which means that it has subtle variations in tone and shade to provide a 3D image with a single application of ink to stamp to page.

The inks I used were Flirty Flamingo (of course), Merry Merlot and Mossy Meadow.

To add some additional interest to the background I stamped some images from the Very Versailles stamp set in Smokey Slate.

I also used a panel of In Good Taste designer series paper to layer the photos on. And I finished up with some journaling in my very own best calligraphy handwriting!

All this was arranged on a page of Very Vanilla 12"x12" cardstock. This will fit into a standard 12"x12" scrapbook album. I have purchased a top-loading album for about $20 online. It has plastic pockets which load from the top to slip your beloved scrapbook pages into.

Scrapbooking is a great way to preserve your memories and the memories of the ones you love. It makes the best use of your craft materials and time as the finished item stays with you and your family for years, even generations!

I love my baby's smile - I hope she will be smiling for years to come!! You too can improve your handwriting with this online course!

  8. Your page is gorgeous Sujatha as is your daughter. Our stampin' supplies really do work so well for scrapbooking. The thing that really standout for me though is your handwritten journalling. It is so neat. Wow!!!

    Sujatha, I have been unable to comment on your blog posts so today I decided to try using a very old gmail account of ours, hence the Michele and Stephen (Stephen is my husband). It seems to have worked so YAY!!! Regards Michele Taylor
