Stamping in Scrapbooking #10 + Giveaway!

My Stamping in Scrapbooking series is coming to an end and I have a final layout for you. Today I kind of want to talk about how not everything we create has to be a masterpiece.

This layout was all about trying a technique that I saw my friend Suse Fish do (much better than I), and honestly, it kind of got away from me. I still wanted to share it with you because I want to let everyone know that perfection is absolutely unneccessary.

The most important thing, for me, will ALWAYS be the story. And this layout has a good one. So here you go...

I used this mostly black photo of my daughter in the car and used black paint to kind of make the photo blend into the layout. I think it looks kind of cool.

The whole idea for the stamping on this layout was to kind of make it look like the stamping is an extension of that paint. I used a ton of my Felicity Jane kit stamps in words and phrases that added to the story I wanted to tell.

I balanced the black with some bright pops of color from the January Susie kit from Felicity Jane.

Stitching is always a fun way to add a bit of detail and texture and I added it all around the layout, including some journaling lines.

If you want to see how this layout comes together, watch the process video here or over on my YouTube channel!

  1. I really like all the videos in this series. My favorite technique is this one because I have never seen it before - it's very clever!

  2. I love that simply sewing in journalling lines - texture but no weight. Going to use that Thanks Jen :-)
