Thinking of You + Video Tutorial – Erica Thompson Guest Designer

Hello Everyone! Erica here and I am so excited to be guest designer for Precious Remembrance Shop! I am loving the new Daily Thoughts stamp set and today I wanted to create a quick and simple card!

I started with a white card base and some scraps from my January Clique Kit. I wanted to use the Think of You sentiments from the stamp set on my card. I created a white panel for my card and ran in through my Big Shot using a polka dot embossing folder. I love the texture that it gives!

I have a bunch of strips of paper from my kit and I thought I could use a few of them on this card! I love all the purples and pinks in this collection! I also die cut a circle out of white cardstock and stamped the Thinking of You sentiment in some slate ink. To finish off my I punched a small hole in the circle die cut and added some jute string. I tied a small bow and that was it! This card came together very quickly and I love how it turned out! Using scraps from your stash is an quick and easy way to get some cards done! Here is a look at my completed card using the Daily Thoughts stamp set!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed my card and are feeling inspired to use up some of your scraps! Make sure to stop by the Precious Remembrance Shop and check out all the fun stamps! You can find the Daily Thoughts stamp set HERE! You are going to have so much fun with this stamp set I just know it! Have a great day!

Scrapbooking Layout + Video Tutorial: Too Cool by: Missy Whidden!

Hello again, friends!  Missy here, and I have a fun abstract layout to share today.  Do you have any stamps that you don’t think you’ll ever have a use for?  For me, it’s the coffee cup stamp from the Coffee Love Stamp Set.  I don’t drink coffee, so I probably would never use it on a project.  I decided to challenge myself to use it anyway!  I went artsy and abstract with it, and I love how it turned out.  I used watercolor paints again instead of ink pads.  I began by randomly stamping the coffee cup stamp over and over using different colors.  I overlapped them and just made a colorful background.  I used another sheet and stamped the coffee cup using black archival ink.  I used the watercolors and ink sprays to add lots of shading and colors.  Once everything was dry, I used several punches and punched lots of circles.  You would never know what these stamps were in the beginning, so it really doesn’t matter what stamps you use for something like this!

Here you can see how awesome these random circles turned out.  Look at the difference in stamping with an ink pad versus watercolor.  It’s fun to get that wet and artsy look with the paint!  You really can’t mess this up, either.  It’s very easy to do.  I added more watercolors and ink sprays to the background and also machine stitched with black thread through some of the circles.

By punching out the circles, I had instant embellishments.  And each one is unique since I used several stamps.  In addition to the Coffee Love Stamp Set, I also used a few stamps from the Blossom Stamp Set.  I added some gold Color Shine, too, which is really fun.  I used some older American Crafts alpha stickers for my title and added in some sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps.

Here on the right side, I created a little circle cluster.  That “LOVE” piece is a die cut from the Love Coupon Bits & Pieces pack.  They’re perfect for using as embellishments or titles.  I added in some pink tangled thread and a few small Shimelle stickers.

I used a few more die cuts here from the Journey Bits & Pieces pack.  These are great for adding the date and adding fun sentiments to your project.  I love the typewriter font!

This was a lot of fun to create.  Those circles were really easy to make with all the stamps.  I hope this inspires you to get abstract and random with your stamps and create something unique and colorful!  Be sure to check out my process video to see how I created this page.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!

Scrapbooking Layout + Video Tutorial: Leaf Hunter by: Missy Whidden!

Hello again, friends!  Missy  here, and I am sharing a new layout using the cute mason jar stamp from the Oh So Fun Stamp Set and a small stamp from the Date Stamp Set.  I also used a few of the die cuts from the new Love Coupon Bits & Pieces pack.  I’ve had my eye on the mason jar stamp for a while, but I never really know how to incorporate it onto my layout.  So I decided to just dive right in and use it and make it work for me.  I was in the mood to use watercolors, so I pulled them out and applied it straight to the stamp using a brush.  I love how it came out.  The watercolor look creates a messy effect and doesn’t leave a perfectly crisp edge.  That’s what I love about it!  I used two photos of my daughter looking for leaves because the colors matched.  Leaves and mason jars really don’t have anything in common, but I just liked how it all came together.

Here you can see how beautiful the watercolor looks.  This was a lot of fun to do, and it’s a great way to use your stamps in a different way.  I like to stamp on scrap paper, fussy cut the image out and use it as an embellishment.  I was able to arrange all the jars where I wanted them instead of stamping directly on to the background paper.  Once I stamped the jars, I came back in with my brush and added some shading to make the jars look more realistic and dimensional.  I also added some splatters after gluing them down.  I also added a bit of machine stitching through them all with white thread.  Here you can also see the circle/heart die cuts I added in.  I also fussy cut a few butterflies from a Paige Evans Turn the Page paper to scatter around the page.

I used some Bella Blvd alpha stickers for my title, which I decided to keep small.  Another fun aspect of stamping, watercoloring and fussy cutting is the dimension.  When the shapes dry, they naturally curl up.  That allows for the image to rise up off the page like this.  I love that!

I added a few subtitles here and there from a few sticker sheets that went with my photos.  I really love how the rainbow effect turned out here.  You can easily mix and match colors as well by painting on a few colors at a time onto the stamp.  It would be easy to create an ombre effect with this stamp.

Here’s one more close-up of the stamp’s detail.  The watercolor picked up those details but still blurred them out a bit.  This would look completely different if you stamped with an ink pad.  So don’t be afraid to change things up and get a little messy with your paints!  You could get a different look with acrylics as well.

I hope this inspires you to try watercolors on your stamps.  It was a lot of fun, and I didn’t want to stop stamping those mason jars!  Be sure to check out my process video if you’d like to watch how I made this page.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

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.

Thanks for stopping by!

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!

Scrapbooking Layout + Video Tutorial : Lovely by Missy Whidden!

Hey there, friends!  Missy here again, and I have a fun layout to share today using stamps from three different sets.  I used the New Day Stamp Set, the This Moment Stamp Set and the Date Stamp Set.  I used up some of my stash for this page, and I really love how it turned out.  I wanted to do some heat embossing on my background, so I pulled the three circles from the New Day Stamp Set and used gold embossing powder on them.  I created my background using a wide strip of Dear Lizzy Documentary patterned paper and layering it over some white cardstock.  I covered a lot of the paper with white acrylic paint first.  I did the embossing once I decided where my photo was going to go.  After I did the embossing, I came in with some paints and sprays to jazz up the background and create a watercolor effect.  The fun thing about embossing is that it resists any liquid, so the color went on the areas in between the circles.

Look at how gorgeous these circles turned out!  You could do this technique with any of the stamps and any color powder.  I decided to embellish my layout with bits and pieces from the Fancy Pants Happy Place collection and the Simple Stories Life in Color collection.  My title is a black foam glitter sticker from Pinkfresh Studio.  I love how everything looks together with the gold stamped circles.

Here you can see all the layers I created by tucking in bits and pieces under and around the photo.  I also added some foam under all of it to raise it up off the page.  This creates such great dimension.  in addition to the packaging technique, I also used my brush and the nozzle to splatter the paint around the page.

I used the This Moment Stamp Set here down at the bottom to create this fun cluster.  I first used a few stickers from Simple Stories and then stamped that label with the heart and the word “memories” under it.  I also used the Date Stamp Set here to add the date.  To finish this area off, I ran it through my sewing machine using metallic gold thread.

I did more stamping above the photo using the phrase “This Moment” from the This Moment Stamp Set.  Those small sentiments aren’t just for cards; I love using them on my layouts like this.  They make the perfect little details.  Again, I added stitching along the grid paper for extra texture and shine.

I hope this inspires you to pull out your stamps and create a fun background with them.  And don’t shy away from using the smaller stamps on your pages, either!  Those little details can sometimes make the biggest difference.  I have a process video for you if you’d like to check it out.

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

Video Tutorial: All Smiles by Missy Whidden!

Hey there, friends!  Missy here, and I’m really excited to be joining the Design Team!  I’m sharing my first layout today, and I used the cute heart stamp from the Love Coupon Stamp Set.  I wanted to create lots of little colorful hearts for a background design.  I pulled out some of my Distress Inks and some textured white cardstock.  Sometimes I like going for a distressed and messy look, so using these inks and the textured cardstock is perfect.  I stamped the heart multiple times in various colors, and some of them I overlapped the colors.  I then fussy cut them all out.  I was inspired by my daughter’s shirt and all the fun colors.  I tried to match them all and create a colored heart explosion.:)

I love how all the hearts turned out.  I really love how you can see the texture from the cardstock.  I like when the stamped image isn’t perfect.  I layered all the hearts in groups of the same color to create a rainbow effect.  I can’t resist a rainbow color scheme, especially when it’s in my photo!

I did a little watercolor work on the background before I glued down the hearts.  I used mostly the same color inks as I used to stamp the hearts, and I also added in some other spray inks.  I didn’t want to cover up the hearts too much, so kept most of the embellishing light and below the hearts.  I layered in two big skinny die cut hearts behind the photo and added my title on the bottom of the hearts. I added in a cute Fancy Pants flair button, but the hearts are still visible.

Here you can see the work I did around the photo.  To the left, I added in matching strips of washi tape.  I just wanted splashes of color in a messy & artsy fashion, so I just layered them and tore them.  I used a few colors of thread to machine stitch for added texture and detail, and then added in a few Fancy Pants die cuts.  I found a cute Hip Kit Club puffy sticker and then added a few sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps.

I stitched through my title and created a little cluster of washi tape and die cuts down at the bottom.  I love the dimension of the hearts!  You could easily do this with any stamp and any color scheme.  I love fussy cutting because then you can move it around anywhere you want.

I hope this inspires you to create a fun background design with a single stamp.  And don’t be afraid to take a little extra time to do some fussy cutting.  You don’t have to just stamp on your background paper.  The possibilities are endless!  You can check out my process video if you’d like to see how I put this layout together if you’d like.

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

Create It Wednesday ~ {Sketchy Love Spinner Card}

Today’s Create It Wednesday project is one that I’ve been dying to make…a spinner card! The letters from the {Sketchy Alphabet} Stamp Set were perfect for making my sentiment the star attraction of the card.

sketchy alpha spinner

This was easier than I expected it to be. I stamped “I [heart] U” twice and die cut them so that I would have a front and back to my spinner. The hearts all come from the {Positive Thoughts} stamp set; for the trio of hearts, I did some masking and coloring so they would be solid black. I sandwiched my string between the two pieces and glued it into place with a strong adhesive.

I created the frame and and card front using the same nesting dies and assembled the card by layering my pieces onto the card in this order: plenty of adhesive, string and spinner stretched across the window, tan & white striped cardstock, then red and pink border. It’s really important to get the order right…ask me how I know 🙂

Hopefully, you’ll give the spinner card a try and find awesome sentiments using the {Sketchy Alphabet} stamp set letters to catch somebody special’s attention! Thanks for stopping by and have an awesome hump day!
