Stamping on layouts!

Am I one of the few who still does this?  I've been a scrapbooker since 1998-- about 15 years!-- but before that I was a stamper.  OH BOY was I a stamper.  I made cards mostly.  And they were UGLY.  LOL  That's before there were so many embellishments or paper choices... and I only had a few inks.
But now, now is a much different story!  Thanks to companies like Close To My Heart, Stampin' Up!, Technique Tuesday, Studio Calico, to  name a few, we can really do so much more on our layouts with just the right stamp. 
This first layout, I believe the patterned paper is Fancy Pants Designs.  The stickers are from various companies, and I used CTMH's Reel Life stamp set (available HERE).
Here's the stamp set.  I know I'll get LOTS of use out of it!  And of course the
circles can be cut with the Cricut and/or punches. 
Next, I used the Tech Speak stamp set, available (HERE).
I've used the stamp set on the layout below, and I know it will come in handy when scrapping pictures of Nick playing on his Xbox and the two of us playing on the Wii.  If only I had pictures of the 8-year-old me playing the original Nintendo way back when!
Anyhow, here's where I used the stamps along these green cardstock edges.  I used yellow post-it notes to block off where I did NOT want the stamped image.
 See?  :)

Thanks for stopping by and leaving love!


  1. Oh cute! I like that second stamp set and have that Cosmo Cricket paper (have used several pieces but bought loads so have more).

  2. Ohhh, love the moustache page, the layout, the colors, the stamping...everything. Great way to embellish your pages with stamps, I am trying to do it more and more.
