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.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving love!
