Almost every occasion can use balloons. Balloons tend to make people smile, don’t you think? I know I love balloons. Lucky for me, Stampin’ Up! has a variety of items balloon related. They carry stamp sets, punches, framelits, designer series paper, etc. I am still focusing on the retiring products because I am enjoying stamps that I have not used in quite some time. The Celebrate Today Stamp Set and coordination Balloon Framelits are retiring on May 31st. BOTH happen to be ON SALE as well!
I used two retiring In Colors as well, Mint Macaron and Watermelon Wonder, on the card. At first the card started out with 3 balloons but it wasn’t giving me the effect I wanted. Add two more and you now see the finishing project. Two of the balloons I stamped with images from the stamp set. I added the silver glimmer balloon because we all love a little bling! Each balloon was wrapped with Whisper White Baker’s Twine and tucked under the the Basic Gray card stock before it was attached to the Smoky Slate layer. The colors work so well together. I am going to miss Mint Macaron and Watermelon Wonder.

For Back to School Themed Scrapbook Pages in 2015, I created the same layout for all 3 boys. Each year, I have my children write their name on a piece of paper to put on their pages. I “erased” it on this photo. I saw this idea in a magazine years ago and love that I can look back and see how their signatures have changed. I you don’t scrapbook, it’s never too late to start. You don’t have to feel overwhelmed. There is no timeline, pick specific events you would like to highlight, back to school, halloween, holidays or birthday. By narrowing it down and focusing on one concept, it will make it easier to complete pages.
