Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Twinkle Stamp Set (October 2015 SOTM), White Pines Paper Packet, White Pines Complements, Inks (Fern and Black), and Bitty Sparkles.

I used the Twinkle stamp set to create the border and title for this layout.  The stars in the title are stamped with second generation Fern and topped with “Dec 25” in Black.  For the border, I positioned all 3 stamps on a block, then removed the stars stamp.  The words are stamped first and then I went back and filled in the spaces with the star stamp.  You may have to click on the picture to see that I also added Bitty Sparkles around the title for a bit more accent.

Now “Hop” on over to Sheila Bennett’s Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, the Twinkle Stamp Set is only available through the end of October!

I haven’t scrapped in a long time so I dug out my beloved Cricut machine for this beautiful overlay.  Everything else I used on this page has also been in my stash for longer than it should so it’s a great “used my stash” page.

Now hop on over to Marilee Eatough!

Brushed Layout

Joy Captured Layout by Wendy Kessler
Supplies used: Brushed Scrapbooking Workshop on the Go Kit, Journaling Jots stamp set (retired), and Inks (Black, Pixie).

This is one of the Brushed WOTG layouts.  I substituted one of the photo wells with journaling.  This is a great way to change up a layout.  I used the Journaling Jots stamp set that I have had forever and love because you can overlap the lines to make them wider to accommodate your layout as I did here.

Everything ABC’s Blog Hop (Letter S)

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!  For this hop we will be featuring the letter S. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their S element will be featured in their post.

I chose STAMPING for the letter S.  This layout uses stamping for the title and accents on the page.  The butterflies are made with 2-step stamping where I stamped the solid image with a lighter pink and then the detailed stamp overtop in a darker pink.

I hope you have enjoyed this hop. Please visit again on September 26 for the “Letter T” blog hop.

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Hello, Life – Pocket Scrapbooking Stamp Set, Hello, Life – Scrapbooking Stamp Set, Hello, Life Cardmaking Stamp Set, Stamp Pads (Slate, Sorbet, Glacier, Canary, Sweet Leaf), Zoe Paper Packet,

These stamp sets are so much fun and they coordinate so well together!  I used images from all three of these special stamp sets to create this page with a fun title.  I think they are great for any pages but when I see them I think TEEN which is harder in my opinion.  These will get a lot of use!

Remember, the Hello, Life! stamp sets are available through September 30 for only $13.95 each or purchase them at a discount of $34.95 for all three!   Shop now!
