National Scrapbooking Month Blog Hop

Scrapbook layout using NSM product

Welcome to the National Scrapbooking Month blog hop – where you’ll find a ton of inspiration on how to use products from the beautiful suite that CTMH have produced to help celebrate this month.

As a blog hop, you’re joining in right now as crafters around the world share their creations. Today I’m following Miss Carrie’s Creations. If you lose your way while travelling around, the complete list of participants can be found here.

There are two beautiful and exclusive paper packs released just for NSM.

You Are Enough Paper Packet + Sticker Sheet - exclusive for National Scrapbooking Month

You Are Enough Co-ordinating Cardstock

As a lover and wearer of rose gold, I immediately fell in love with this range, that has rose gold foil accents throughout. What’s not to love about that right!

I have two lovely layouts to share with you today. Over the weekend, we celebrated NSD in my studio. Everyone received a kit to make the following layout.

Double page scrapbook layout using National Scrapbook Month papers.

This uses Stitched Hexagons as design elements. (I don’t know about you, but anything stitched is always a winner in my eyes!) It has blue shimmer brush lightly spattered in the background, to take away the ‘whiteness’ of the page. It’s a nice, clean simple page, just waiting for photos and a story to complete it.

Here’s a layout I created for myself, with just a hint of these papers. They’re so beautiful, that sometimes just a little accent is all you need to bring a page to life. I’ve simply used a strip of the co-ordinating cardstock at the top and bottom, and although you can’t see it in the photo very well, the bottom strip has another thinner strip of the mint paper on top. The heading uses one of my favourite alphabet stamps – Brushed Letters. I’ve shadowed it by stamping it all in a lighter colour first, then stamping again (slightly offset) in a darker colour.

Double page scrapbook layout using National Scrapbook Month papers, featuring Doubtful Sound.

After I completed this layout, somehow a wet wipe found it’s way to rest on my title. 🙁 I’m still trying to work out whether I can get away with it as part of the ‘theme’ or if I need to re-do it? What do you think?? BTW, this overnight cruise in Doubtful Sound, NZ, is one SPECTACULAR trip.

I hope this has inspired you to create with this beautiful paper range (rather than saving it ‘cos it’s so pretty!). If you haven’t yet got your hands on any, if you’re in NZ, and don’t have a Maker, I’d love to help you out. You can shop online directly HERE or simply message me.

Now, it’s time to hop on over to Melinda who will continue the inspiration.

Thanks for popping by. Happy crafting,

      Lol, thanks! I did think at least it was a watermark, so it does go with the theme!
