Stamping in Scrapbooking #6 - The Sweet Life

The technique for this week's Stamping in Scrapbooking layout is a fun one - watercolor stamping! You can use a variety of products to achieve this look, but I used Tombow brush pens and I think it looks fabulous!

I used a photo from our vacation to the Oregon Coast and it's all about this delicious gelato...I wanted the layout to reflect the sweet treat, so I used pink and orange for my stamping.

I used a few stamp sets to achieve this look. I colored the stamps with the markers, misted them with some water, and stamped them onto the layout. I used watercolor paper, but I don't think it's absolutely necessary.

I layered up some chipboard, gold puffy stickers, and enamel dots below the photo creating a line of embellishment.

That word "sweet" is from the Maggie Holmes Confetti Thickers. It was originally black, but I painted it to better suit my layout.

I added a bit of mist in blue and gold to finish it off. If you are interested in documenting all kinds of vacation photos and stories, check out my Photo Triage: Vacation Photos class!

To see how the layout came together, watch the video here or over on my YouTube channel.

Stash Kits: Old Meets New - Cook Family Christmas

When I created this stash kit, I mentioned that I wasn't much of a Christmas scrapper. Well, I decided that I love making holiday layouts. Today's layout has 15 photos. Yep. Fifteen!

I created a 12x12 layout and a just-smaller-than-6x12 insert using my Fuse tool.

The main layout has a large title, but no journaling. I wanted to keep it pretty simple, so I left the journaling for the insert.

I've really been loving silver this year. It has a fresh and bright look that I'm loving. I cut up a super old SEI paper with silver foil frames all over it and layered it behind my photos. I also added a bit of silver glitter paper for extra bling!

For even more silver, I put some silver modeling paste through a tiny heart stencil. I love the subtle shimmer it adds!

I kept the insert very simple. Just photos with typed captions, a bit of journaling, and a little title card. On the back of the title card I added a few die cuts and a sequin. Easy peasy.

If you want to see how this layout came together, check out the process video here or over on my YouTube channel.

Felicity Jane: Love This Family

Thanksgiving is around the corner and I felt like documenting something I'm grateful for. The Felicity Jane Savannah kit was perfect for this.

I created a pie chart using patterned papers, white cardstock, and even the cute polka dot tissue paper that comes in the FJ kits. 

I stitched around the circle three times and lined the whole thing with those awesome gold word stickers from American crafts.

That cute little fox came from the subscriber printables (free and emailed to subscribers each month!) and he looks so happy there. :)

I used a combination of puffy stickers and and the "family" label from the cut apart sheet for my title.

I love the flair in this month's kit. So cute! That flower was the perfect little shot of yellow.
