Today I wanted to share a couple of layouts that I created with my April Scraptastic kits for the Scraptastic Blog.
I really have enjoyed playing with this Let Me Go kit, Add on kit, and Stamp Set.
I wanted to share a couple of my layouts and show you some ways I like
to use the stamps and some of the scraps from the kits as well.
For my first layout I began with a neutral cardstock for my
background and I chose to stamp with light inks in the upper left corner
and middle right, directly on the background. My aqua ink is a light
shadow type ink, but the pink and gold are bolder so I stamped them
first on a scrap of paper and then stamped onto my page so they would
I decided that it would be fun to die cut the state and title from
patterned paper and if you haven't used an ombre paper for a cut title,
you just have to give it a go. I love the effect. Its my favorite thing
to do with ombre paper.
For my second layout I did some stamping that might work better for
you if you aren't comfortable stamping directly onto your layout.
I created coordinating tags with a camera theme to go with my photos
of vintage cameras that I took while antiquing. I stamped a pale aqua
map image multiple times onto the light patterned paper with dots and
then cut 4 tag shapes and layered with embellishments. These tags really
are so much fun to make and you could use kit scraps and just keep tags
on hand for future layouts.
I also used the scalloped outline stamp from the Worth Wondering Stamp set.
I stamped it twice onto a scrap of patterned paper directly with black
ink and just cut it out and used it as an accent next to the photos.
