Explore Summer Days – Scrapbooking Layout // by: Missy Whidden + Video Tutorial!

Hey there, friends!  Missy here again, and I’m sharing another layout as the Guest Designer this month.  I used stamps from the New Day and Date Stamp Sets for this Summer page.  I decided to not use any specific collection and just let the stamps guide my design.  I created four photo frames using the brush stroke stamp from the New Day Set.  I used some colored inks I have in my stash including pink, blue, yellow and a reddish pink color.  I stamped them on textured white cardstock and then fussy cut them out.  I layered them behind my photo and added foam under it to give it some dimension.  I also added some tissue paper in there.  I used the various sized circles from the New Day Set to create lots of  confetti-like dots on the layout, and I also did some embossing with clear powder to create some subtle circles.

I absolutely love how you can see the texture of the cardstock in the stamped image.  I like that it makes it look somewhat distressed and imperfect.  I fussy cut all the circles out and glued them in a diagonal fashion around the photo.  Later, I decided to add a third small cluster of the circles to the right of the title.  Here you can see the dimension from the photo cluster.  The shadows created are awesome!

Here’s a great close-up of the stamped frames.  I love how these turned out!  I machine stitched around the inner edges with some blue thread.  On the background, I used some of the same colored inks and some plastic packaging to create some watercolor splotches.  I love using lots of blue on Summer layouts!

Here’s another shot of the third cluster of circles.  I felt like that area of the page needed some more of those same shapes and colors.  I love how the title turned out.  Lots of different fonts and dimension.  I added another stamp from the New Day Set right above my journaling that says “Simplicity is Beauty,” and I thought that was perfect for my photo of my daughter looking for leaves.

Again, the texture from the cardstock just really makes these stamped images so detailed and interesting.  It was fun creating a shape using one stamp four times!  I added some tangled thread around the photo a few times in coordinating colors.  This adds some great texture to the layout.

Since this was an outside photo, I decided it needed some sun bursts and some clouds.  I lightly sprayed some yellow mist over a sunburst stencil at the top of the page and then used the same blue thread to stitch along the edges.  I hand cut some cute clouds from white cardstock and layered them in.

Finally, here’s a look at the title.  I mixed and matched a Bella Blvd chipboard piece with a Crate Paper piece and added in some Hip Kit Club exclusive blue alpha stickers. Down below that, I added my journaling.  I also added a small stamp for the date from the Date Stamp Set.

Here’s my process video if you’d like to see how I created this layout.  These stamps really made this layout really fun to put together!

Paige’s World – Scrapbooking Layout // Guest DT- Missy Whidden! + Video Tutorial!

Hi stampers! Thank you all so much for joining us & letting us share our project ideas using our Date stamp set.  We hope that you got inspired and enjoyed every projects. As we continue sharing more creative ways in using our stamps, we  are very excited to introduce a very special & very talented guest designer who will inspire us more with a total of 3 amazing projects – today & in the next couple weeks.

Please welcome Missy Whidden with her first layout + video tutorial! Yay!:)

Hey there!  I’m Missy Whidden from sunny Florida, USA.  I’ve been married to Marshall for 17 years, and we’ve been together since I was 18.  We have two beautiful little girls, Reese and Paige.  They are both autistic and nonverbal, so life around our house is never boring.  They keep things interesting and are usually the subjects of my scrapbooking.  I have been scrapbooking for over ten years now.  My mother-in-law got me started when I helped her make a scrapbook of my husband’s baby photos and I was instantly hooked.  My style has changed quite a bit from stickers, paper and deco scissors.  I  have gravitated toward mixed media, and I love using paints, watercolors, spray inks and gelatos on my projects.  I also love machine and hand stitching, incorporating die cuts from my Cameo and using bright and bold colors.  I guess you could call my style “organized chaos” since I love a messy and artsy look while still making sure every little detail is in place.  I’m so excited to be guest designing here this month!  Thank you so much for having me!

——————————————————————————-

I was immediately drawn to the scribble stamp from the Happy Art Stamp Set.  It reminds me of my youngest daughter, Paige.  She’s wild and crazy, and her personality is full of spunky rambunctiousness!  She has unruly wavy hair, and her life’s mission is to make huge messes.  I had to create a layout that fits her, so I created a photo strip of photos of her.  I wanted the look of messy scribbles coming out from behind the photos with lots of splotchy color.  I decided where the photos were going to go and then used black archival ink to stamp a bunch of the scribbles around that area.  I used plastic packaging and various spray inks to create some watercolor areas on the background.  I used some of the Amy Tangerine On a Whim collection for the rest of the design.

I absolutely love this stamp!  It’s so fun and messy, and it’s perfect for my style.  I incorporated a few other stamps on the layout as well.  I used this fun ink splatter from the Happy Art Stamp Set around the page a few times.  It’s the perfect splatter.  I added some more black ink splatters as well as some tangled thread peeking out from behind the photo.

I added more of the ink splatter stamp on this side of the layout.  I added some fun die cuts around the page as well as this cute flair button.  I love adding tangled thread to my pages, and here I used a few colors.

I wanted to create a sub title, so I stamped this sentiment from the Happy Art Stamp Set and then fussy cut it. I wanted to lay the words out differently than they were on the actual stamp, so cutting each word out worked out great.  Plus, it said exactly what I wanted it to about my sweet girl!  For my main title, I hand drew the letters of her name on some of the Amy Tan papers and cut them out.  I traced around them with black pen to make them pop a little more.

I used even more stamps down at the bottom.  I created the date using the Date Stamp Set, which I love!  I also used the fun brush stroke stamp from the New Day Stamp Set, and I used a Heidi Swapp ink pad in Mustard for that.  I also used a fun sentiment from the Totally Stamp Set.  I love how versatile these stamps are!  I added another die cut here at the bottom and then machine stitched through it.

Here’s my process video if you’d like to see how I put this layout together.  I had a blast making it, and I hope it inspires you in some way!

Stay tuned for two more of my projects coming your way soon!  Have a great day!

Stamped Backgrounds // Guest Designer Erica Thompson

Hey everyone I am back with another guest designer post using some fabulous Precious Remembrance Stamps! Today I will be using the Happy Art, Positive Thoughts and New Day Stamp Sets! I had so much fun with these stamps and created 3 fun cards to share with you today!
The first stamp set is the Happy Art stamp set

I started by spraying some of my Shimmerz paint onto my non stick mat and using my favorite stamp in the Happy Art stamp set and stamped it out on a white piece of cardstock that I will be using for my card front. Once I stamped it out in two different colors I added some splatters some black threads and then a few layers of pattern paper!

So fun and super quick to create some great cards!

I used this sticker from Bella Blvd. as my sentiment! Here is a look at the final card!
My next card I used the New Day stamp set and used the three circles to create a background! I used Versafine Black ink to stamp the images!


Next I added some black threads and then some fun pattern papers in my favorite colors!

I love these papers from Bella Blvd. Addison collection! The colors are so fun and look awesome with the black polka dot stamped background! Here is a look at the final card!

The last card uses the Positive Thoughts stamp set! I used the solid heart to create a pattern on the lower part of the card front!


I used more paper from the Addison collection from Bella Blvd and a piece of ephemera from the die cut pack!

I stamped out the word Hello from the Positive Thoughts stamp set on the ephemera piece and I think it looks adorable!

Here is a look at the final card!


Here are all three cards using the Precious Remembrance Stamps! I have had so much fun being guest designer! I hope have enjoyed my projects this month! Remember to stop by the Precious Remembrance shop to pick up these fabulous stamps and also their Facebook page! Have a great day!

{Inspire Me Friday} Daily Goodness

Hello, everyone!  It’s Judy here with my next installment of {Inspire Me Friday} featuring the new “Date” stamp set!  Are you enjoying all of the wonderful inspiration by our Design Team and awesome Guest Designers this month?  I hope so!

For my project this time around, I decided to make a quick and easy one-layer card and I paired up several PRS stamp sets.  I couldn’t help but think that the days of the week in the “Date” stamp set would go perfectly with the sentiment from the “New Day” set.  Of course, the pretty flowers from the “Blossom” set” go well with any stamps!

The fun dots and brushstroke are also from the “New Day” set, stamped in Scattered Straw distress ink.  The days of the week were stamped in a Soft Granite ink so that the main sentiment in black ink would really stand out.  The flowers were watercolored using distress inks for a soft look.

For a final touch I added three sequins and ran my blue ink pad along the edges of the card to frame it.

Create It Wednesday ~ {New Day & Oh Christmas Tag Team}

Versatility is the name of the game for today’s Create It Wednesday card! I love when I can combine stamp sets to create great projects, and the result was exactly that when I used the {New Day} and {Oh Christmas} stamp sets. new-day-oh-christmas

I started by creating the focal point for my card, the sideways tag with an inlaid die cut snowflake. The brushstroke stamp from {New Day} was perfect to bring in different hues of blue ink (Chipped Sapphire, Tumbled Glass, Broken China, and Weathered Wood Distress Inks). I even used the medium sized dot from the set to stamp the hole reinforcer on the tag! For the sentiment, I used some masking to stamp “let it snow” from {Oh Christmas} just once.

A few sparkly accents with some Wink of Stella and sequins on the tips of the snowflake and dotting the “i” in the sentiment and we have a wintery collabo 🙂 Thanks for stopping by to see my project and join us Friday when Judy continues our cool combinations of stamp sets for Christmas cards!

Different shades of….. / Look at the bright side!

Hi stampers! Yay! I can’t believe it’s almost summer time.  How was your half of the year so far?:) Oh time flies ~ June is here!

Today’s project is simply fresh. When I see color green, for me it is refreshing, so natural- just like nature. It’s not my most favorite color, but I always adore it!

Here I played with different shades of green inks, stamped my feather image from our DIY stamp set, sentiment from New Day stamp set, and bright triangles from Happy Art stamp set.

I also splattered some green and pink watercolors to make it more playful! I love it!♥ 

Let me know what you think with this card!:)

Just a quick reminder: Orders between June 9 – 20, 2016 will be shipped on June 21, 2016. Thank you for your understanding!:)

With the circle centerpieces from the New Day stamp set. I heat embossed the scribbles and centerpieces in white embossing powder, not only it will make the color pop, but the texture is fantastic.

I stamped some fun elements around using the same stamp sets. Added my sentiment from our Happiness:Paper Snippets, and behind that, I tucked in some threads for more texture. Don’t forget to color in between the stamped flowers using watercolors if you like, just lovin’ the pop of yellow and pink everywhere!:)

Saturday Creations – {—hi—}

Hello Everyone!  Today I have a card and two creations that could be framed and hung on a wall using our new PR Happy Art Stamp Set Here is my card ~ think flowers and hearts!

000_4709

I used distress inks and brushed across the hearts with a water brush for the color bursts.  The flower is made with three of the stamps from this set, the large spot, the small splat and the scribble.  The stem is from the PR New Day Stamp set and the —hi— is from the PR Positive Thoughts Stamp Set.  What I LOVE about the Precious Remembrance stamp sets is that they all compliment each other ~ lots of hearts, lots of FAB fonts and universal sentiments!

So after I made my card I decided to make two pieces with the flower motif:

000_4714This time besides using the paint stroke for the flower stem I also used the sentiment from the PR New Day Stamp Set.  Because there were ink spots in the sentiment, I flicked black ink all over the page.  Then I decided to make an even brighter version:

000_4715

The color around the edges is distress ink applied and moved around with a water brush.

I had so much FUN playing with the PR Happy Art Stamp Set!  You will, too!  Until next time:

Saturday Creations ~ {Inspiration from Pride and Prejudice}

My FAV movie scene EVER is when Mr. Darcy is walking across the moors and he tells Elizabeth “I Love, Love, Love You.”  Have you seen this movie?!

This scene is what inspired my card for my last Sweet Pea Stamp Set posting.

000_4649Here’s a close up of the words.  It was easy just to ink up the word Love the first two times and then ink up the entire sentiment for the last Love You.

Here’s my card:

000_4650I used three Precious Remembrance stamp sets to make this card.  The paint streaks were stamped in graduated pink inks with a stamp from the New Day Stamp Set.  The heart was stamped on the card and then I stamped another heart, embossed it with clear embossing powder, and popped it up.  The heart is from the Love Coupon Stamp Set.  I went over the paint streaks with tea dye distress stain.  The white script is peeking through because this paper is white on white embossed paper and none of the ink adheres to the words.  Cool, huh?  And of course some sequins from Lisa’s Sweet Pea sequin collection!

I hope you like my card!
