Sparkly Scrapbook Stamping

scrapbook page
Supplies: Patterned papers by K&Company, The Girls’ Paperie, October Afternoon and KI Memories. Letter stickers by American Crafts, My Mind’s Eye, October Afternoon, KI Memories and My Little Shoebox. Label stickers by October Afternoon. Ribbon by American Crafts. Journaling spot by My Mind’s Eye and Banana Frog stamps.

I just finished this scrapbook page with some sparkly stamping and butterfly stamps from Banana Frog, and put together this short video so you can see how the layout comes together and how the stamped designs sparkle. It’s such an easy way to add shimmer and well, I am nowhere near the end of my obsessions with sparkles or butterflies, it would appear!

Plus this has really made me smile to see all the different colours and topics that have been scrapped with the same free digital page template. If this is your layout, you’re a challenge winner! Email me with your choice of three kits from the Shimelle Digitals store so I can get your prize zapped over to you!

And in other news, I’ve been asking everyone for things to do in Dublin, and would love to hear any suggestions you have… since I’m not exactly a fan of the Guinness, sadly! (Thank you for the amazing help so far!)

Wishing you a wonderful week!

    Hey Shimelle, Funny you should ask for advice on Dublin. Four schoolfriends and I are just back from Munich (this past weekend). We’re all from Ireland and were discussing what we’d do ‘on holidays’ in Dublin, as a comparison… tricky. We are totally biased cos we’re from the West. My first biased piece of advice on best thing to do in Dublin – get on train to Galway! It’s totally more rocking culturally and more laid back in a hang around pedestrian kinda way. There certainly is an east coast west coast divide like the US (in my opinion…although I’ve only ever done west coast USA too!).

    If you can’t do outside Dublin I suppose I’d say go to Trinity College, Guinness storehouse (I’ve never done that tour either), maybe do the duckboat tour or Viking tour, National Museum (if you’re into celtic artifacts…which is kinda interesting I think, but not everyone’s cuppa).
    We decided London is top city in Europe for shopping, so why shop in Dublin if you can shop in London. Skip the shopping streets etc.
    Not sure what pubs etc to recommend, but you will find lots with traditional irish music, etc which is always very lively. Dublin is excellent for ‘nightlife’
    The main ‘unique’ things about Ireland are moreso in the countryside as Dublin has become more of a ‘European’ city now. Lots of ancient historic and archaeological sites and beautiful scenery, rather than spectacular buildings that you get in more ‘built up’ cities.
    I hope this all helps. Have tried to ‘befriend’ you on Facebook to join the conversation. I’m sure the Dublin girls will have their own biases!!
    And don’t forget to check the ferry timetables; we very nearly had to inter-rail home from Munich, as the ‘ash’ is so unpredictable. At least you could swim home from Ireland!
    PS And don’t rule out Galway!

    Great LO Shimelle – love those stamps! And also your funky nail varnish, too!!!

  6. Becky Says:

    Wonderful layout and love the butterflies – you have got me so into butterflies they are appearing on nearly all my layouts at the moment!

  7. heather Says:

    love the whole layout, will have to have a go at this technique

    as for Dublin.. if you don’t like Guinness there is also the Jamesons Whiskey Distillery tour. I love the photography gallery at Meeting Place Sq in temple bar and The Dublin Writers Museum was interesting. St Stephens Green is lovely, I saw a free show of Midsummer Nights Dream in the little ampitheatre there. Enjoy, I love Dublin!

    This is a lovely LO. Thanks for the little video with the tips on it. I was wondering if you could let me know what the name of the paper you have used as a background to your LO.I can’t seem to pick it. Many Thanks
