Hi everyone,

Excited to share with you my first mixed media scrapbook page for the Pink Blog Hop in honour of Breast Cancer Awareness month.

The pictures I chose for this page were taken this year at our Thanksiving Dinner. They are of my 4 month old daughter and her 93 year old Nana (great grandmother) who both happend to be wearing pink. Her Nana was holding her and she began smiling, gigling ,"chatting" with her and touching her face.  I think it made my Nana's year and I wanted to make a page to peseve this moment for them. I'm still trying to figure out how to best photograph my pages so please bear with me while I figure that out.

How To:


I used sponge daubers to watercolour the background in Blushing Bride on watercolour paper. I used 9 x 12 watercolour paper as Stampin' Up!'s watercolourpaper is much smaller.  Then I stamped the words from the Tabs for Everything set.

On top of the watercolour backgroundI layered Wood Textures DSP and a pearlized doily.

The left edge is embossed  using Blushing Bride cardstock and the Tufted embossing folder.Some Shimmery Powder Pink ribbon finishes of the edge.

The flowers are from the Floral Frames bundle and are all heat embossed in white and watercoloured in Blushing Bride and Berry Burst. The leaves are watercoloured in Tranquil Tide. They are layered and popped up using mini dimensionals.

I also used dies from Stitched Labels set for the page title and the heart.. "NANA" is heat embossed in white using letters from Stampin' Up!'s Pick a Pennant stamp set.

I added additional die cuts in Berry Burst and Tranquil tide. The round picture is die cut with a stitched shape circle die.

To finish off the page I used Pearl Basic Jewels in the middle of many of the flowers.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Stamping!
