National Scrapbook Day Giveaway – Win Graphic 45 Sun Kissed Collection!

Welcome to National Scrapbook Day on Scrapbook Update! We’ve got a great giveaway to share thanks to Graphic 45 – and a fun layout to get you inspired to play with it!

Graphic 45 Sun Kissed large

This Graphic 45 “Sun Kissed” collection is perfect for a beach vacation – or life here in Florida. It will have you all ready to scrap sun, fun, and relaxation!

While cleaning my studio recently, I found a stash of old enlargements that I’d had made about ten years ago and never scrapped. These pictures of my mother and her long-term boyfriend who passed away a few years ago were in there. Sun Kissed seemed like the perfect match for them, with its more sophisticated take on a beach look.

Supplies Needed:

This wasn’t what I intended to this layout to look like at all, but when I went looking in Cricut Design Space for a wave graphic I found these thin line waves. I fell in love with them, and my layout design changed a lot as a result of that happy accident! Adding the sequins to them gives them the look of having foam on them or of light reflecting off of their tops.

To get the light cream strips for the journaling, I wanted to have something that matched the cream shade in the other papers. Cream is very hard to match. I decided to cut a cream colored stripe out of one of the patterned papers. Problem solved – it’s a perfect match. And it has some pattern in it to give it some texture too!

Giveaway | Spellbinders Nestabilities

It’s time for another anniversary giveaway for Scrapbook Update’s readers!

This time the giveaway is a set of Spellbinders Nestabilities, the small Classic Squares set that cuts and embosses.

Spellbinders NestabilitiesYou might be thinking, “why would I want a square die cutting set when I can cut squares with my paper trimmer?” There’s a couple of reasons that die cutting squares has advantages. For one, it’s easier to get squares that are absolutely perfect and all exactly the same size – especially important if you are using them in a grid design together. Another advantage is that it is easier to place (or even center) a design in the middle of the square when you can place the die and then cut. Continue Reading →
