GATHER Layout by Nicole Martel

Good morning everyone. I’m sharing another fall layout I created using Precious Remembrance Shop’s Fall Colors Stamp Set. I used pretty papers from Pink Paislee and die cuts from Vicki Boutin’s newest collection. The die cuts are beautiful. I received some from Scrapbooking & Card’s Today’s stampler and I think I need to check out the actual collection. 🙂

I stamped the leaf patterned on kraft paper using brown/pink ink then colored them in using markers. Aren’t they pretty?!

 

I added a few tags at the top to add a few more layers.

 

I stamped the “hi there! and autumn” sentiment onto the labels. Oh and I almost forgot about the “thankful for you…” sentiment below the photo. This stamp set is perfect for fall! And they are available in the shop! Click here.

 

A few close-ups of the embellishments. I went a little crazy with the layout. I tend to add stuff until I am pleased with the layout. 🙂

 

 

Thanks so much for visiting today!

Design It Monday ~ (Sentiment Focal}

Hello friends, welcome to another installment of Design It Monday! I have a quick and simple Christmas card for you today where I’ve made the sentiment my focal point. Take a look…

Project_20191110_0001 copy

I’ve used the large pretty sentiment from the Oh Christmas stamp set. It was stamped with evergreen ink, then die cut with an older Spellbinders die. I added pine here and there around the edges. The same ink was used, but it was stamped off first to give a lighter appearance.

I added a panel of patterned paper to the card base before popping the die cut on. This went together quickly and is a perfect solution for mass production cards!

Let it Snow Mixed Media Layout by Nicole Martel

Happy Sunday stampers! Today I’m sharing a layout I created using the “Oh Christmas Stamp Set” and “Sketchy Christmas” stamp set from Precious Remembrance Shop. I took these photos of Edward in January. He was so excited that we finally got a little snow… he was even dabbing in the snow. Silly kid.

DSC_6380

To begin, I sprayed three different Coloration Sprays from Art Anthology (Juicy, Salmon, and Raider) onto white cardstock.

I matted three 2″x2″ photos on patterned paper and placed them on the layout to determine a design I was happy with. Once I had the placement of the photos finalized, I stamped the trees to frame the photos and added lots of pretty embellishments from Pinkfresh Studio.

 

 

 

I really like the font of this stamp. Isn’t it pretty!

 

I did not include any journaling since most of the embellishments used, included sentiments. 🙂

 

Thanks so much for visiting today! Come check out my video to see how this layout came together!

Happy Halloween Layout by Nicole Martel

Good morning everyone! Nicole here with a fun Halloween Layout I created using my scraps. It’s been awhile since I’ve dug through my scraps and it felt good to put them to good use!

DSC_5512

 

Initially, I was going to turn the photos to black and white since the purple did not go with the patterns, but I decided to leave it alone and add a little purple here and there…

DSC_5495

I added some of the circle images from the stamp set within the empty circles to make it more playful!

DSC_5496

I used the tiny row of circles to create lines for my journaling.

Design It Monday ~ {Beware}!

Hello! October is nearing it’s end and with that comes Halloween. Today, I’m sharing one more card featuring the Beware stamp set.

Project_20191020_0002 copy

I had the die cut banner on my desk, so I decided to begin there.

Those little Washi Pieces from the set were stamped first followed by the Beware sentiment.

Next came the polka dot borders serving as the dangle-y portion of the spider webs.

I stamped the web images then fussy cut them.

Project_20191020_0003 copy

After deciding where the banner would be placed, I stamped a trio of soft gray webs then adhered the banner. A little Halloween Washi tape and rhinestones were my finishing touches.

There’s still time to add the Beware set to your stamp collection ~ it’s only $6.99!

Wonderful Mixed Media Layout by Nicole Martel

Hello everyone. Nicole here with a fun mixed media layout I created using the Love Coupon Stamp Set. Just recently, I became an auntie and I am so excited. Edward and I are in love with Henry! He is so precious.

DSC_4915

To begin, I sprayed white cardstock with pink and tan spray mists (Colorations Sprays) by Art Anthology.

DSC_4922_2

I used a circle template to draw two circles overlapping each other in the center of the layout and then I cut the butterflies out from the patterned paper and mounted them on the layout using foam squares to add dimension to the layout.

DSC_4939 (1)

I added a few additional embellishments here and there along with some stamped images. Love how soft and pretty this layout turned out.

Here is a close-up of the stamping at the bottom.

Come see how this layout came together!

Design It Monday ~ {No tricks, just treats}!

Hey there! It’s Lisa here today sharing a fun idea for a quick and simple Halloween goodie bag. Why buy pre-made bags when you can jazz up one of our Plain-White or Plain-Kraft Flat Paper Bags from the shop.

Project_20190915_0001-2 copy

First up, I added a strip of Washi Tape to the bag. Next came the stamped star splatters from the Journey Stamp Set. Using a circle die cut border, I stamped three images from the Beware Stamp Set set using a smokey gray ink.  I stamped and punched out two orange Jack-o-lanterns then added them to the strip with foam tape. The strip of circles begins and ends with a star from the Totally Stamp Set. No circle border die, no problem. Just use punches or die cut circles for the same look.

Project_20190915_0003 copy

I finished things off with two Trick or Treats sentiments (Beware Stamp Set) and some glossy bat stickers from my stash.

Add those treats and you’re good to go!

Fall Layout by Nicole Martel

Happy Friday! I love Fall and I can’t wait to take some pictures of the leaves changing in my neighborhood. I decided to pull an old photo of Edward out to scrapbook. He was two years old. We went to the park this day and had a great time together…exploring and playing.

DSC_4629

I used the Fall Colors Stamp Set along with a variety of inks and paint to create the leaves pattern in the background.

DSC_4607

A lot of thought went into this piece. Lots of stickers and embellishments carefully placed to frame the adorable picture.

I used Pink Paislee’s Indigo And Ivy Collection to embellish this layout. LOVE the embellishments in this collection.

Let’s Talk About Happy Things Layout by Nicole Martel

Good morning. Nicole here with a layout I created using the Coffee Love Stamp Set. I decided to do something different… I bought this little album months ago. It’s been sitting in my craft bin. I don’t know about you, but I find it hard to scrap in this size. It took me 25 minutes to create this tiny page. LOL…But I like it. 🙂

DSC_4566

I messed up the first time I stamped the “just a little” onto the journaling card. I wasn’t sure how I was going to still be able to use the card, but then I decided to stamp the sentiment onto white cardstock and then cut the sentiment out and cover up the mistake. It worked, but it’s not perfect.  I really like the sentiments in this stamp set. As you can see, I used quite a few on this spread.

DSC_4561

 

DSC_4562

The Let’s talk about happy things stamp is perfect for this spread because that is exactly what these kiddos do when they are together… they like to talk a lot and play together.

DSC_4563

Here’s a video of how this layout came together…mistakes and all. 🙂

Thanks so much for visiting today!

Design It Monday ~ {Eeeek, Spooky!}

September is flying by at lightening speed! That means Halloween is right around the corner. You still have time to pick up your Beware Stamp Set in plenty of time to get inky. There’s no time like the present, it’s on sale!  Here’s a little inspiration for you using that very set.

thumbnail_Project_20190827_0007 copy

Using the colors in the patterned paper as my jumping off point, I stamped three of the circle images. They’re punched out and two were added to the card with foam tape. Those yellow eyes on the PP make this just spooky enough!

Beware_Stamps-600x600

There are oodles of fun images in this set with endless possibilities!
