Scrapbooking Global June 2018 Blog Hop

Hi!  Welcome to my blog.  I’m Sara Levin the artful inker.  Earlier this month the Scrapbooking Gobal design team was assembled.  And today, I’m participating in our inaugural blog hop.  We’ll be hopping once a month with a designated theme each time.  This month just our design team is hopping.  Our theme is the new Stampin’ Up! color palette to which we can add black and white.    For my Scrapbooking Global June 2018 Blog Hop page, I created a layout using Swirly Frames.  Let’s take a look.

Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop June 2018 Swirly Frames scrapbook layout from


I do what I call scrapbooking in reverse.

What that means is, I design/create my page and then

sometime later I add photos.

For this page, I pulled out Mango Melody, Crushed Curry, Shaded Spruce

and Coastal Cabana.


Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop June 2018 Swirly Frames scrapbook layout - detail - from


Using the awesome Swirly Frames stamp set,

I created a geometric pattern for my background.

Next, I added one stamped line in black.

That seemingly random line actually pulls the whole thing together.

To finish my layout, I added a Coastal Cabana mat

along with a few Iridescent and Metallic Sequins.


Thanks for stopping by to see my Swirly Frames scrapbook layout!

      Thanks Susan! The process works for me. So, I like to share the idea in case someone else is looking for a different way to approach creating pages.

      Thanks Shaz! It seems to take the stress out of the creation of a page — for me. I can just create.
