Get It Scrapped CT Blog Hop



Hello there! Hi! Old friend, new faces, blog hoppers, all: welcome to the Get It Scrapped Creative Team Blog Hop.

Today I'm delighted to tell you that I have been invited to join the Creative Team run by the immensely talented Debbie Hodge over at Get It Scrapped. Get It Scrapped is celebrating its fifth anniversary this year and I can still remember how much I learned from some of the very first classes; so it's a real pleasure to know I'm going to be making pages alongside such a fine bunch of scrapbookers.

Debbie has asked everyone on the team to celebrate today by choosing a favourite Get It Scrapped article. well, that took me a while...but I finally decided on

Ideas For Using Project Life Designs and Products on Non Project Life Scrapbook Pages

I'll admit it: I buy Project Life products because I can't resist them. Journaling cards, little embellishments, smaller sized patterns on neatly sized papers? That's everything I love. And the examples I found at Get It Scrapped gave me the push I needed to use some of my supplies right here:


on a page which pokes a bit of fun at my scrapbooking habits.

Join the hop to discover the articles which have inspired the rest of the team..and as you go, pick up some great discounts on issues of Masterful Scrapbook Design. I'm recommending

Sian, I jumped ahead on the Get It Scrapped blog hop to rush over here in order to congratulate you on your selection for the GIS creative team. I've always enjoyed browsing through their weekly e-mails, but I will certainly be reading them with more interest since I "know" someone on the team. I know you will do great things with them!

Cheri said...

Congrats for being selected for the Creative Team - you'll do them proud! Like you, I'm a sucker for the Project Life "stuff" so I need to go check out that article!

Amy Kingsford said...

Oh Sian what a beautiful page and what a beautiful little blog you have here! I'm so excited you'll be joining us this year!

I have to admit I am a Project Life journal card junkie, though I don't do PL. I love your take on using these journal cards :D

Marie-Pierre Capistran said...

beautiful!! I'm eager to see what you see this year. :)

Jennifer Shaw said...

I love this page! Great inspiration for using Project Life supplies. Congrats on your new gig!

Debbie Hodge said...

great way to make an "all about me" page. love how the small photo stands out on top of all those journalers. so excited you've joined the team :D

Kiki K said...

I love collecting this journal cards myself! love what you did with them in your page! looking forward creating with you and nice to meet you :)

Jennie Hart said...

Congratulations :) I haven't heard of Get It Scrapped so off to check it out.

I love that page and you have used project life stuff to great effect, love the confessions too, but please do not run out of stories!

Maria Ontiveros said...

I enjoyed every single class I took from Get it Scrapped, about 6 or 7, I think. Congrats!

mfortunato said...

This made me laugh! (and I can relate to a lot of them :P) I, too, have lots of PL cards but hardly ever use them because they seem too perfect; never thought to distress them - duh!! Now I know how to make them work for me :D
I'm a newbie on the team, too - excited to be working alongside such creative people!

Celeste said...

stunning page! love your humor too. so excited to be on the team with you.

Melissa said...

Congratulations - you will definitely be a great addition to the Get It Scrapped team. I was just browsing the GIS site last weekend and found lots of sketches to use!

I can definitely see you being drawn to the Project Life items as you always have lots of little bits & pieces on your layouts. I enjoyed reading your "confessions!"

Ladkyis said...

Congratulations! I have never heard of Get it Scrapped but I am sure they will benefit from your input. Well done that girl!!

alexa said...

Many congratulations on your first appearance as part of the team! And I am fascinated to read the bit about designing and moving on - that's the sort of thing I would have expected me to say, not you :).

Missus Wookie said...

Congratulations on joining the DT team - looking forward to seeing your work over there too. Favourite article huh? That is tricky there are so many in my files...

Carrie said...

This is such a great page and refreshing use of PL stuff, Sian!! I'm happy to get create with you this you.

Sandie said...

Congratulations Sian! I've not heard of Get It Scrapped so will need to go and find out more. Love your page and confessions too!

Sue Althouse said...

Such a great layout! Exactly the way I like to use Project Life, too. Very excited that I can officially and publicly welcome you to the GIS Team. I was so happy to see your name on the roster!

Chipper Newman said...

Congratulations! I have only just recently heard of Get It Scrapped and still hadn't had a chance to check it out. You've provided me with a shove in their direction and I will go have a look now :-)

Ahayes1225 said...

Wonderful way to use your stash. I am looking forward to working with you this year.

Gail said...

Congratulations on getting chosen for the design team!!

Amy said...

You know what's funny? I have a whole lot of PL stuff as well and don't use it because I don't know what to do with all the small stuff!
Hey, this is such great news - and I love it that you're on a DT because I know you will do your best to showcase journaling and the heart of scrapping. Congratulations!

Louise said...

congratulations Sian - how lovely and a great project to start with. I also admire all the PL goodies - i've not...yet...purchased any though! maybe that will change especially now i've seen your beautiful layout x

heatherawsumb said...

What a fun title! I can totally relate. Looking forward to being on the team with you this year!

BrendaB said...

I tend to collect the Project Life items, too. Love the way you used them on this page!

Lise Mariann said...

So fun! And a really great way to use those purchases of project life-stuff. I love the subject of your page as well. Looking forward to working with you on the creative team this year. :-)

Stefanie said...

Thanks for sharing your habits, love the layout, great use of the dark brown to tie everything together. Lovely to have you on the team for this next year.

kristytdesigns.com said...

Sian, this is such a fun layout. I love it. Your bit about losing embellishments and having a 'never as tidy as it should be' desk made me smile. I can relate :)

Ifa said...

Congrats lovely! That is super news. I remember doing classes with Doris and Dina way back. Your LO is gorgeous. I am always tempted by those cards that come out at 12x12 that you cut out...I love that you get multiple patterns for the price of one.

Sandra said...

HUGE congrats :)

taylortattle said...

Sian, I was so happy when I checked in at Get it Scrapped and saw you were on the design team, your work is fabby! Many, many congrats! x

S said...

So thrilled to be on the team with you Sian! And your page is lovely although it is not photoless. I had to smile about your comment of loosing embellies right before you need to adhere - I suffer a similar fate - I keep track of the embellishment - it's the adhesive I cannot find even though I just had it a second ago.

Alinor said...

loving that layout, the colors are awesome!

Ruth said...

Congratulations on joining the DT! I am a Project Lifer, as you well know, but I'm also finding more and more ways to use the products on "normal" pages. I love this page!
(And did you know that you had a mention of the Home page on UKScrappers? First time I stop by in about 18 months and there you are!)

JO SOWERBY said...

Wow she invited you personally, I've always dreamed of that happening and here you are living the dream. Congratulations,
Jo xxx

Karen said...

How exciting! I used to spend a lot of time over there, but haven't recently. I'm quite sure your presence will put it on my list again! Congratulations, they're lucky to have you.

Nathalie said...

What? I am finding out about this almost a month later!!! Shame on me! Huge congrats to you Sian! That is a smart and brilliant place for you to be DTing! (mmh, I think I just made up a verb!)
