Ok, got to be quick with this post, but I thought I would share a scrapbook page that I did for convention last year using the Amazing Birthday stamp set…. and the best part, it doesn’t even have anything to do with a birthday!
I had these pictures from the Tulip Festival in Mt Vernon, WA. We went last year to see all the amazing fields of tulips and when I was going through my pictures later, I realized that I could glue two of my pictures together to tell an even bigger story!
And when I wanted to accessorize, I realized the Amazing Birthday stamp set was a great way to go.
I use the Sweet Taffy designer paper to pull out my bright colors from the pictures. So I used it for matting my picture as well as the base paper for my layout. Then I cut up one of the stamped images (the happy happy happy birthday to you image) and used the happys for a little touch over the top of my picture.
For my journalling, I played with more stamps by using the Skinny Mini Alphabet stamp set to highlight what we were doing, but made that “title” part of my journaling by making it part of the sentences of the story I was sharing.
I used the big stamp – “Make Today Ridiculously Amazing” sentiment for another element and more of those “happys” and then added a border around my paper by piercing holes with my paper piercer and stringing baker’s twine around the entire edge of the page!
Add a touch of lace doilies and some candy dots in the corner – and DONE!
It is a fairly simple layout but I love it and it makes me happy to look at it. So, whether you are looking for a memory keeping solution and want to go with the quick pocket page layouts or want to use more of your stash and create a full 12×12 page. There are tons of ideas and options for you.
