I was challenged to use some word stamps on my scrapbook layout. We often overlook those stamps and use them strictly for card making. This page utilizes lots of words and I applied a couple of my favorite techniques for adding them to scrapbooking.
Love the challenges at “Lasting Memories Scrapbook Challenges Blog” this month. We have had some interesting challenges for using our stamps so far. Hope you have been playing along, too!
I often do not have many, if any, of the pre-packaged cutouts of cute words, so this challenge was for me since what I do have is lots of stamps! I even used some swirly stamps on the base. After using my Fiskars circle cutter and templates for the circles, I used some spatters before pasting down the photos. That’s a nice plus for me since I usually forget to do the spatters BEFORE and have to cover the photos with some scrap paper.
Did you notice the techniques I used for the stamped words? Some are simply cut to shape or a punch was used. I’m kinda fond of the pen work idea where I make a loose ring and then fussy cut it out. Recently I discovered the line work where the word is boxed that I think is fun.
These are some older photos of my princess taken by a friend of her mother’s. I thought it was so nice of the young woman to take the series of shots for her friend, and, to share them with me too. It’s just proof that doing something loving for each other is always worth the effort. Kat may never know how much enjoyment her time has brought to me and others. Seems that has been the ‘message’ this weekend – “Love others as Jesus loves us”. So, my love to you for stopping by; do something creative and loving!
