Scrapbooking Layout + Video Tutorial: Weekend by: Missy Whidden!

Hello again, friends!  Missy here, and I have a new layout to share today combining two stamp sets and some of the new stickers and die cuts available in the shop.  I always look through my stamps and see what inspires me at the moment.  For this page, I began with my photos.  They’re of my girls about to ride our 4-wheeler, so I wanted to create a messy and somewhat muddy layout to showcase them.  I knew the scribble stamp from the Happy Art Stamp Set would be perfect, so I chose that to use on my background.  I also used a sentiment from the New Day Stamp Set.  I incorporated some of the new Coffee Love Stickers and Journey Bits & Pieces on the page as well.  The pink in those helped me with my color scheme.  I didn’t use any patterned paper on this layout, and it was a lot of fun to just use stamps and embellishments along with watercolors and sprays.

I absolutely adore this scribble stamp.  It’s perfect for so many things, and it symbolizes mess and dirty for this page.  I used a thick smooth cardstock without any gesso.  I used some brown distress inks as well as some Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine and some Shimmerz.  I thought adding some pink would add a feminine touch to the brown splotches.  My title is one of the stickers, and I simply adhered it to some cardstock and then cut it out so I could move it around.  I glued it to my photo and then machine stitched through it with gold thread.  A lot of the gold embellishments around the page are from my Crate Paper stash.

Here are a few of the fun stickers.  These are perfect for planners, but I like the challenge of making them work on a layout.  I used them as layers and smaller subtitles.  Here is where I used the New Day Stamp Set.  This quote was just right for these photos.

I really love how the pinks and browns look together.  I don’t normally go for browns, but the pictures suited it.  I used one of the camera die cuts here available in the Journey Bits & Pieces.  There are three different sizes of these cameras!  Again, the other embellishments are from various Crate Paper collections.

Here’s a closer look at the camera and the background stamping.  Stamping doesn’t always have to be front and center;  you can use them for subtle elements, too.  I did more machine stitching here to add more pops of shiny gold.

I hope this has inspired you in some way to create a fun layout using your stamps!  And be sure to check out the shop for all the new stickers and die cuts.  They’re very versatile and can be used in so many ways.  Also, be sure to check out my process video if you’d like to see how I created this page.

Hello, I’m back featuring a project using some goodies from Precious Remembrance Shop.

Today I’m playing with Happy Mail + Beware:

Here’s how I was inspired!  I inked up those fun circle images from the Beware set in a charcoal ink.  It gives it a worn look and just what I was looking to complement my design.  I wanted to have a handful of the images included on my card so I staggered them with spacing and foam adhesives.

I managed to include two sentiments, one from each stamp set.  The Happy Mail set is perfect for card + envelope designs:

This has already gone postal and hopefully it will brighten the recipient’s day!

Letters & Mails!

Hi stampers! Yay!:) Holiday season is fast approaching, we will be giving gifts , letters, or any happy mails soon. Busier months are definitely coming! Are we ready yet? Hmmm….. a lot of things to prepare for sure! And one of those things is to make sure it’s a special one. But it’s the thought that counts!:)

Today, I have another project idea using our brand new set Happy Mail Stamp Set.

I created a cluster of stamped images, the & is from a fiskars punch. The mini doily behind it adds a little softness to this card, I love that size, it’s cute and delicate!

The stamped border on the side adds a pop of color as well. And to make it more interesting, I drew a straight line just beside it.

Thank you so much for joining me today. I hope you got inspired with my simple card!:)

Happy Stamping!

Inspire Me Friday ~ Halloween Treat Bag

Hello, everyone!  I’m so excited that October has arrived because I love making Halloween projects for my little nieces and nephews!  I love the excitement of Halloween, the costumes and the scary stories, the coming of fall and the cooler weather…and who doesn’t love the candy?

My project this week features our newest release set, “Happy Mail,” paired with the fun “Beware” set.  I made a quick and easy treat bag for a little one…and I will likely make more!

10-6-17 PRS Happy Mail Project #2-1

I punched circles from card stock that matched the polka dots on my treat bags (from the dollar section at Target — a great find!).  On one side I stamped “TO:” while I stamped the “FROM” on the reverse side.

10-6-17 PRS Happy Mail Project #2-2

I combined stamps from both sets to make the topper for the bag. I thought the “open me if you dare” went perfectly with the upper-case OPEN ME!

10-6-17 PRS Happy Mail Project #2-3

I also thought it was a fun touch to stamp “Happy Halloween” directly onto the bag. Can you spy it at the bottom?

Create It Wednesday ~ {Happy Halloween Mail}

What an awesome Wednesday to share a CAS Halloween card and matching envelope using the crazy versatile {Happy Mail Stamp Set}…which I of course combined with the wickedly great {Beware Stamp Set}.

BewareHappyMail

My favorite color combo for the witching season is lime green, purple, orange, and black. Without the lime though, I’d be lost 🙂 I stamped the circular images from the {Beware Stamp Set} to create patterned paper. Using 3 nesting circle dies to created the focal point, I pitched out (put in the recycle bin) the middle ring so that the black card base would show between the out and inner most circles. I stamped the sentiments and arranged them from longest to shortest. This stair step look works great as a design element for CAS cards.

BewareHappyMail2

And who wouldn’t want to send this card in a matching envelope…which by the way, I’m really feeling mail art right now. The new {Happy Mail Stamp Set} had just what I needed!

Scrapbooking Layout + Video Tutorial: This Way & That Way by Missy Whidden!

Hello again, friends!  Missy here, and I have a fun layout to share using stamps from four different stamp sets.  I used the new Happy Mail Stamp Set along with the Fall Colors, Journey and This Moment Stamp Sets.  The majority of the Happy Mail Stamps are perfect for cards or decorating gifts, so I decided to use the small arrow to create a fun background.  My photos are of my daughters doing one of their favorite things…running around outside.  They always run away from each other usually, so I created to big circles with the arrows to show movement.  I used lots of blue and green Distress Inks to do this as well as some Shimmerz Paints, and then I used the same inks to create the watercolor splashes.  My favorite part of this layout was using the beautiful leaves from the Fall Colors Stamp Set.  I heat embossed them with gold powder and then used the inks to color in the white areas.  There’s just something about glittery leaves!

 I used smooth cardstock as my background for this, and here you can see how pretty the stamping turned out.  I stamped each arrow a few times to get lighter shades of each color.  I love that some of them look a little distressed.  A perfectly stamped image isn’t that important to me, especially if I’m creating a background.  Look at this beautiful leaf!  I love how they turned out.  I went with gold because it’s just so pretty mixed with these blues and greens.  I also did a bit of machine stitching with metallic gold thread for some extra shine and texture.

Here are more leaves that I tucked in between my photos.  I stamped them on some scrap white smooth cardstock and then fussy cut them out.  This is a great way to create your own embellishments!  I printed my photos in different sizes, and I don’t do that often.  It was fun to play with multiple photos like this.

Here’s another look at those awesome arrows from the Happy Mail Stamp Set.  I wanted my title to reflect the motion of the photos, so I pulled out some old white fabric Thickers and staggered them.  I used an ampersand from a set of gold Thickers and then machine stitched through the words.  I also added a lot of splatters using the Distress Inks, some gold Heidi Swapp Color Shine and some Shimmerz Paints.

 I tucked in a few more leaves here under my bottom photo along with some tangled thread.  I did add some adhesive foam under all my photos for dimension.  I did use a few sentiment and phrase stamps from the Journey and This Moment Stamp sets under two of the photos and under my journaling.  I finished everything off with some blue and green sequins from Spiegel Mom Scraps.

 This was so much fun to make!  I hope you got some inspiration on how to use stamps on your layouts.  I have a process video here if you’d like to see how I created this.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a great day!

There’s a lot of photos to see, browse around and let me know what you think! We definitely have more collection lined up, stay tune!:)

As a stay at home mom & a small business owner, my days are repetitive. Of course I do my priorities first as a Mom & Wife, to take care of my family. And then I do some work for my shop. Decorating planner is definitely my newest hobby & yes, I find time to do it.lol – When I get a chance!:)

Since I can’t decorate it on the spot / same week – I right down my notes on a separate notebook, it’s a quick tip for those of us who can’t make projects right away! And then, when I get a chance I decorate it later on.:)

I got this planner recently from Michael’s – they have a lot and this is the vertical planner. The boxes are pretty standard – approximately 1.5″ x 2″.

We were on vacation on this week, so I have to say I have more notes than usual. Since we did a lot of things, visiting family & more!

I plan chronologically, and in white space.

I mixed it up with some washi tapes. Specially if the colors will blend perfectly with the stickers!:) I know you got a lot of washi tapes out there-lol. It’s time to use it up & create fun planner pages!

I hope you got inspired for today’s project. We have more planner projects to show & more collections to add.

Thank you so much for joining me today! It’s now’s available in the shop. If you’re interested.

Happy Planning!
