Ink & Share Scrapbook blog hop - February

Hi Crafters and welcome to another Ink & Share Scrapbook hop! We are a group of Stampin Up demonstrators from around the world who get together once a month to share our passion for scrapbooking. This month we are featuring new DSP (designer series paper), either from the main Annual Catalogue or the Spring/Summer one. I chose Classic Garage DSP from the S/S catalogue. 

I always find that for me, the longest process in scrapbooking is choosing the photo(s) I want to use! This one of my lovely husband in 2007 seemed to fit the bill. We were on a road trip through Arizona and Utah with my parents and had stopped off in Park City, Utah. He had disappeared for about 10 minutes or so and when he came back he was on a Segway!  He had a lot of fun zipping around while we were there.

I found the images on the DSP fitted well with this photo. The maps represented our road trip, the tyre marks Steve's zooming round! I arranged the punched shapes to represent tyre tracks too. 

As the DSP is 6" x 6", I wanted to fill the 12 x 12 layout more so after tearing the edges, I cut it in half and added the two halves just under either side of the photo. This made the DSP look a lot wider and filled the layout better. 

I added some inked elements from the matching stamp set Geared Up Garage and finally some gears cut from the Garage Gears Thinlits dies. 
The Park City letters came from Lined Alphabet

Now it's time to move on. Please click on the image below to hop over to Jenna, I know she'll give you some fab inspiration for your layouts

Hope you have a crafty kind of day
