The Everything ABC's Blog Hop -Letter - P

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter P This may be the name
of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has
chosen as their P element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Linda's blog ~ Scrappy Therapy 

If you came from "Melissa Hegwood"  then you're on the right track!

I signed up for this blog hop minutes after I watched a tutorial on a Water Fall Mini Album by My Sisters Scrappers.  It's a great tutorial, very easy to follow.  But not ONE "P" to work with.... I knew I had to make the album, and trusted there would be at least one "P" in the project .. ah, ha!! There it was, Project.  So I decided to make the album and just still need to find the family photos of the most precious people in my life - ah ha, "P"-photos and Precious People #2 & #3. I was on a roll.
I did use some retired paper and stamp sets.
Laughing Lola Paper packet - retired
Circle of Love D1348 - retired
Peacock and feather
Enjoy the Little Thinks B1451 - retired
small flower
Placed in the inside pockets
Lagoon Washi Tape - retired
Bitty Sparkles Z1263
Thistle Ink
Black Ink
Lagoon Ink
Lagoon Sequins from the Lollydoodle Card Workshop on the Go - retired.

 I actually think the total number of P's for this project is now 10.
  • People, the reason I scrap and paper craft
  • Patterned Paper (B&T), the hardest part of a project is deciding which paper to use.
  • Peacock!  remember the peacock paper and stamps we had way back when??
  • Projects, I love crafting with paper and have so many projects to do on my bucket list, I'll need at least 40 years - so I'll be over 100 years old before I've completed all my projects.
  • Picture My Life - Laughing Lola tags for journaling
  • Pockets - inside the cover
  • Purple - Shimmer trim and Glitter Gems,Laughing Lola and our new Thistle Ink
  • Paisley - Laughing Lola
  • Photos - to remember the fun we've had.
  • Phun! OK......... you know what I mean!

  1. Playfully Perky Princess Darlys! Now where are the instructions, I think I must PUT together one was well.

  2. Wonderful Project and use of all the "P"s. You definitely have to share where you found this tutorial.

  3. I did share the tutorial. :-) The link is directly under the photos - "My sisters scrappers". There are several other You Tube videos with samples. The link I have gives the measurements and directions. She did some punches too - another "P", I didn't have the time needed to spend on all the details that make the waterfall album looks so great. I'm thinking I want to make it next with the Balloon Ride paper .

  4. I changed the color of the links so they are more obvious, though I wasn't able to change the color on three of them. Not sure why?? I had just used the auto color when I made the link. Hope this helps. dr
