Scrapbook Sunday ~ Matchy Matchy

This pages uses mostly Stampin' UP! supplies.  I used my Cricut to cut out the Old Olive cardstock letters.    That same Old Olive cardstock is used to mat a couple of the photos and for the leaves punched out using the bird punch.

The paper I used is from a retired SU pack.  I want to say it was called Botanical Gazette, but I'm not sure.  It is a lovely paper pack to use because the colors are muted and the images don't compete with your pictures.  

One of the great things about this DSP is that it has lines.  Any time there are lines or grids on your paper you can use it as a guide for journaling.  It seems like I use the brush end more often in my stamping, but it sure is nice to have the fine tip on the Stampin' Write Marker for journaling on scrapbook pages and writing a note inside a card.

One of the things I've always loved about Stampin' UP! is how well there products co-ordinate with each other.  The DSP had Old Olive in it, so I used Old Olive cardstock and marker and could have stamped something with OO ink too.   If I had any Old Olive ribbon I could have used it as well, but admittedly Old Olive is not my favorite color. 

Now for some fun trivia... how many times did I use Old Olive (OO) in this post?  :D   Just bringing some humor to your day. 

Creative Blessings,
