Adding a little blue

True blue is so hard to find in scrapbooking.  I wouldn't necessarily expect it to be in fall papers anyway but that is what I needed for this layout about our hydrangea blooming in the fall.

I shared the story here before.  We had a late freeze that killed everyone's hydrangea blooms. Suddenly in fall, the bush was in full bloom and looking beautiful with the maple tree behind it.

So the page in this process video captures that story and shares how to (and not to) add an extra color to your page.

The embellishment is a combo of a chipboard element and a stamped background from a hydrangea stamp.

This page also uses one of the sketches from the 2014 Sketchbook.

Here's the process video at YouTube:

A video on printing on journaling cards is coming along in a few days.  Thanks for stopping by today!


  1. Such a fun layout Lisa, love your photo!

  2. I still have my CM cutters too and was so worried about what to do when my blades need replacing. Good to know that we can still get them. I really like the embellishment you made. Thanks for being so honest in your video and showing the complete process you went through and why you made the decisions you did. And I love that you used a sketch and flipped it.

  3. Love your work as always.
