Crazy for Triangles - Stampin' UP Artisan Blog Hop

Welcome back to the Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! We are working on to our first box from Stampin' UP with products from the Annual catalog. Every Thursday of each week for one full year, all 16 of us from all over the world will post on our blogs an inspiring project for you! Be sure to get Google Translate so that you can read in your language all about how they created their projects too. Now on to my project this week.... 
I have been organizing my craftin/stampin studio room over the past two weekends. While doing that, I have come across some old photos from past special memories. This sweet photo was one of them. Now while I have been into digital scrapbooking and Project Life® by Stampin' UP® lately, a traditional scrapbook page was called for this special memory reminder for my girls and their Dad. Long story short, I was in Hawaii with my mom for a girls trip but before I left I bought tickets to the concert for them to do something fun together. My husband got to take his girls to their very first concert! It was the Cheetah Girls with Hanna Montana opening for them! (It was BEFORE Miley Cyrus got famous)  He is such a good Dad! Even took them to dinner, bought concert t-shirts for them and remembered to take photos of the whole thing for me! Yeah, I got me a good guy! ;)
As soon as I saw this pattern paper in the Confetti Celebration Designer Series Paper, I knew I had the theme. Triangles are hot trend right now! I took out my "not used as much" Petite Pennants Builder punch and punched out Strawberry Slush, Crushed Curry, Basic Gray, Kraft, and another one of the pattern from the DSP. I even took some of them and ran them thru my Big Shot with the Tiny Triangles Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to add a little texture. The base of this scrapbook page is our new Kraft 12x12 paper. Say YUMMO! The white heart Basic Hodgepodge Clip holds in place a Washi Tape covered What's Up arrow punch. I used the unraveled Strawberry Slush Thick Baker's Twine for a bow. No main title or journaling on this page but I went with quick sayings from one stamp set that pretty much tell the story all together. I stamped the And Many More Stamp Set with Strawberry Slush and used the Bitty Banner Framelits to cut them out. 

Thanks for stopping by! I hope this inspire you today to get out those old photos today!

Naww, what a cool memory. Loving the triangles that have 'escaped' from the DSP and are scattered across the page.
