Happy Celebrations Scrapbook Page - Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Welcome to another Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop!  We are so glad you are following along.  If you came from Dani's blog, thanks for continuing on to me! :)  We are a group of 20 demonstrators from around the world.  If you come across a blog not in your language, be sure to use google translator so you can follow along!

Today we are featuring a number of sets from the Occasions Catalog.  I really liked the Happy Celebrations stamp set (item 143012) when I first saw it - mainly for the splatters and smudges, but also for the coordinating embossing folders.  

For today's project, I wanted to do something other than a card.  I've had these photos printed for awhile and when the idea for this page came to mind, I was so excited to finally get them on paper!

I really like playing with different stamps to create borders and couldn't wait to try this.  Because Happy Celebrations is a photopolymer set, lining up these triangles was a piece of cake!  The darker (larger) triangle is stamped with Archival Basic Gray and the lighter (smaller) triangle is stamped in Smoky Slate.

I also thought the triangles coordinated with the fun black and white print from this Project Life card.  I took a PL card from the Moments Like These Project Life kit and cut it up to tuck behind some Dapper Denim DSP from the 2016-2018 In Color DSP Stack.

For the focal point of the page (other than these cute little gentlemen) is the happy stamp that I repeated down the side.  Again, since this is photopolymer, lining these words up was super easy.  For the colored word, I actually stamped this on another piece of Whisper White cardstock and colored each letter in with a Blender Pen and Dapper Denim ink.  I wanted to make sure I liked it before I put it on the page.  It "made the cut" so to speak and I fussy cut each letter.  The "together" is stamped and adhered with a Stampin' Dimensional.  I used the Classic Label punch for the ends.

Another fun detail I added was the sketchy lines around each letter.  I used my Dapper Denim Stampin' Write Marker just to added a little extra detail and I was pleased with how it turned out.

The words were written with a PL Journaling Pen on two circles made with the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.

Because I cut up the Project Life card, I had some extra pieces to use for this extra detail.  I added some Dapper Denim 3/8" Ruched Ribbon and some Basic Black Solid Baker's Twine to finish it off.

I hope that you enjoyed my creation.  Be sure to check out the entire hop - I'm certain you will be inspired by this global team!  Next stop is my talented friend Jennifer from New Jersey!

Thanks again for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!
