It's the Little Things Layout by Wendy KesslerSupplies used are all Close to My Heart: Colonial White Cardstock, Dotty for You Paper Packet (retired, could easily replace with Lagoon Cardstock), It’s the Little Things Stamp Set, Inks (Pear, Glacier, Lagoon, and Pixie), Lagoon Hearts Washi Tape, and Sparkles Flourishes.

The first thing I thought of when I saw this stamp set was random stamping.  Random stamping is a great technique to use when you have a variety of different size stamps like in this set and it gives you the ability to match colors to any pictures that need to be scrapped.  When I pulled out this set of photos, I knew that it’s the little things” was also the perfect title.  The key to random stamping is imperfection – start with the largest stamp and fill in with the smaller ones, be sure to stamp off the edge of the paper, and turn your stamp like I did with the leaf.  As you can see in the picture below, I didn’t waste my time stamping the middle as I knew I would be covering that part up anyway.  I also tried doing something a little different (for me) by placing the title cluster in the center of the page when my first instinct was to put it in the lower right corner.
