Scrapbooking Global July 2018 Blog Hop

July 19, 2018 25 Comments

Hi!  Welcome to my blog and thanks for stopping in.  I’m Sara Levin the artful inker.  Today, I’m participating in the Scrapbooking Global July 2018 Blog Hop.  If you’re looking for scrapbooking inspiration, you’ve come to the right place!  There are 30 of us including the Scrapbooking Global design team who are using the same theme.  Let’s take a look at what I’ve created and then you should take the tour!

 

 

Scrapbooking Global July 2018 Blog Hop

 

 Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop July 2018 scrapbook sketch from theartfulinker.com

 

For this month’s hop, our challenge is to use this sketch.

It’s a great, straight forward layout with loads of possibilities!

 

Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop July 2018 scrapbook layout first try - from theartfulinker.com

 

So, I thought you might like to see a progression for my page.

I find that taking photos as I create helps me to “see” things differently/more completely.

While this is not my first photo — I was too quick in deleting — this is my first,

“I think I’m on the right track” photo.

For this page, I accented with Copper Foil cut with

Chase Your Dreams and Stained Glass Thinlits.

And, I created a title that is a combination.

I printed part and then used the Make a Difference stamp set and

embossed in copper.

 

Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop July 2018 scrapbook layout - second try - from theartfulinker.com

 

Basically, I was happy with the building blocks of

Share What You Love designer paper and Basic Black and Gray Granite cardstock.

By adding smaller Basic Black rectangles to the designer paper,

I was able to make the Copper Foil elements pop.

Next, I added a cover to my journaling square that I cut with an

Eastern Medallions thinlit.

The shape and lines of the thinlit tie in with the other die cut pieces.

In addition, I added black Metallics Sequins and a piece of the designer paper

that I fussy cut.

And for my finished layout, I tweaked one last thing.

In the upper left rectangle, I skewed the Basic Black mat and the Copper Foil “dream”.

    What a stylish and elegant page Sara – thanks so much for sharing your ‘process’. If I did that it would be a VERY long post indeed!!!

    • Sara Levin July 23, 2018 at 12:22 pm

      Thanks Jackie! We all have days when our process is longer than others 😉

  • michelle veller July 21, 2018 at 1:01 pm

    Beautiful! I especially loved getting a peak at how your page progressed

    • Sara Levin July 21, 2018 at 1:04 pm

      Thank you Lisa and Michelle! So glad you stopped in and left me a comment to let me know you’d been here.

  • Lisa Kmiec July 21, 2018 at 10:38 am

    Great page Sara! Thanks for organizing the hop.

  • Karie Beglau July 20, 2018 at 12:38 pm

    I love the different ways you created this layout! Thanks for the inspiration!

    • Sara Levin July 20, 2018 at 2:54 pm

      Thanks, Karie, for letting me know that my creative progression is helpful.

  • Monique de Kok July 19, 2018 at 4:15 pm

    What a beautiful, serene layout. Love your use of copper makes it chique!

    • Sara Levin July 19, 2018 at 4:50 pm

      Thank you Monique! The Copper Foil seemed to me a “must” all the way through the design process.

  • Rachel Traudt July 19, 2018 at 11:13 am

    I love the idea of hiding your journaling, as I am not always pleased with how mine looks.

    • Sara Levin July 19, 2018 at 11:47 am

      Thanks Rachel! And, it becomes another way to add a pretty design element.

  • Eimear Carvill July 19, 2018 at 9:47 am

    The black and gold make your layout so classy! Love it Sara – love seeing how it all came together

    • Sara Levin July 19, 2018 at 10:20 am

      Thanks Eimear! I was trying to match the tone of the event.

  • Sharon Dalton July 19, 2018 at 8:06 am

    Thank you Sara for another great example of how you create your layouts <3 I also do take photos of the progression of my layout because I believe that seeing it in a photo gives your just the correct amount of perception of how the completed layout will look. Thank you for your running of the Blog Hop and making sure that it all runs very smoothly <3 And being part of the Creative Design Team for Scrapbooking Global.
    Cheers Shaz

    Beautiful lay-out Sara! Love the gold on it! x

    • Sara Levin July 19, 2018 at 6:43 am

      Thanks Yvonne! I agree — those foil bits help bring it to life.

  • Delys July 19, 2018 at 3:49 am

    This looks awesome Sara and lovely step by step photos of the LO. Great idea!

    • Sara Levin July 19, 2018 at 6:41 am

      Thanks Delys! It’s my version of a process video 😉

  • Danielle July 19, 2018 at 2:57 am

    Lovely layout, Sara. Love the picture, the die cuts and journaling!

    • Sara Levin July 19, 2018 at 6:39 am

      Thanks Danielle! Great sketch that I’ll have to play with again — maybe a little outside the box.

  • Natalie July 19, 2018 at 2:28 am
