So the challenge is USE A STAMP on your layout...any stamp is fine, including digital stamps, however I think we will exclude a date stamp as that would make it too easy! I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with. Here is my layout...
So can you pick which item is the stamp? Its the butterfly. This is a Stampin' Up! stamp that will be released in the new catalogue (Sept) and it is my favourite butterfly stamp. All I did was stamp it onto some white smooth cardstock and then cut it out. Now I know that seems like a lot of effort, but with the right pair of scissors cutting out an image is really quite simple. I also did another layout using stamps which I have posted on my blog to give you another example. However, below are layouts from the SAG Team and I must say they are all wonderful!
First up is Sharon's layout. She has used a digital journaling stamp and I just adore this layout. The whole concept is amazing and definitely one I am going to lift! The journaling stamp is perfect for this layout and I really like it. Something I couuld definitely see myslef using...might have to get one for my collection! Sharon did mention that it also comes in a real life stamp as well which is what I'd go for.
Next we have Amy's Layout...
Amy has also used a digital stamp - an Ali Edwards Hand Drawn Digital Stamp. This whole layout is another one I could definitely lift and I was very impressed that Amy made this template herself! It is awesome and I love the blues, plus the photo is priceless!
Nicole has used the traditional form of stamping with ink in this adorable layout.
Nicole has used a couple of different stamps, firstly one for the journaling block which allows her to handwrite which as discussed a week or so ago on the blog, is a very important part of scrapbooking. Secondly, she's used the circle stamps at the top and the bottom which add extra interest to the page. The photo is just gorgeous and the patterned paper matches perfectly!
Di has sent through an oldie but a goodie...
Di has used the "Our Family" stamp which is perfect for this layout. I love that even though this is an older layout, it still looks great and has stood the test of time!
So now you have seen what the SAG team have done with stamps, both digital and inked, its your turn. I can't wait to see what you come up with. I'd also be interested to know if you use stamps very often in scrapbooking. Make sure you leave us a comment if you link up to the challenge so we don't miss anyone's layouts. Also, if you have any questions about stamping I'd be more than happy to answer, just leave a comment with your question.
Have a great week.
