Sweet Centers Hot Air Balloon Scrapbook Page

When my husband and I first moved into our home, Saturday mornings usually meant listening to hot air balloons rise and fall in our neighborhood.  We loved watching these beautiful balloons skim the trees and sail into the clouds.  Riding in one of these balloons is still on my bucket list.

I had a customer workshop this weekend with a request for a scrapbooking make and take.  I created a 12 x 12 layout, and the guests created an 8 x 8 layout.  I wanted to use the new Stampin' Up! Framelits, a different color combination, and punch art in my page.  This is what I came up with:

12 x 12 Scrapbook Page - Sweet Centers Balloon full

I used the Domestic Goddess DSP for my color inspiration – Pool Party, Poppy Parade, and Daffodil Delight.  All the ladies loved it!  Here are some close-ups of this page:

The guests made the 8 x 8 page and also the balloon accent.

The clouds were easy to make with a punched out scallop, sponge, and Pool Party ink.

Up, Up, and Away!

Welcome!  This weekend I am featuring two items from the Occasions Mini Catalog – the Create a Cupcake stamp set and the Build a Cupcake Punch!  I have made many cupcake projects with these two items – but I love creating out-of-the-box samples!  Here are two items I showcased at a workshop I did last night – a birthday card and a 6 x 6 scrapbook page.

Create a Cupcake Hot Air Balloon Scrapbook Page

To make the hot air balloon, I used Real Red textured cardstock, So Saffron cardstock, hemp, crimper, Build a Cupcake punch, 1-3/8" circle punch, Small Heart punch, crimper, and Stampin' Dimensionals.  Be sure to place the Stampin' Dimensionals on top of the hemp – it helps secure them!  The "clouds" are made from the frosting section of the Build a Cupcake punch and sponged with Marina Mist ink.  On the scrapbook page, I distress the edges of the photo section with our distressing tool.
