Wisteria Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Wisteria Blog Hop. This month is our sixth hop already, and our list of participating bloggers continues to grow! Please help us welcome two new bloggers: Tiare and Vicki. I can't wait to see what they have in store for us.

I've been making so many cards lately that I'm afraid my albums are feeling a bit neglected. With that in mind, I decided to make scrapbook pages this month.

I absolutely love ALSB (Assembly Line Scrapbooking). You can get so much done in so little time, but sometimes I forget about the Layout Cards designed for our membership each month. Much like our Idea Decks, the Layout Cards aren't "paper-specific", so you can use them with any papers in your stash.

Up, Up and Away Layout Card

While exploring the past few months' Layout Cards, Up, Up and Away's caught my eye, so I paired it with papers from the Wisteria Club Scrap kit. All I had to do is gather the appropriate papers, trim them according to the instructions, and assemble.


I just love how these pages came out, don't you? The photos of my daughter, Emma, paired with the Wisteria prints perfectly! I really didn't need to do much to finish up the pages; just tinted the white silk flowers from the CS kit with my hybrid inks, added the LOVE sticker from the Lite kit, and channeled my inner "Kay" by adding a wee bit of glitter glue. I think the whole process took me about 30 minutes, start to finish!

So are you ready to see what our other bloggers have in store for us today? I've listed all of our bloggers below, just in case you lose your way.
