Stamp Sunday #37 – The Works Alphabet

D1195 The Works Alphabet $17.95

Brookings Children's Museum Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used: CTMH The Works Alphabet stamp set, Die Cuts With a View papers, CTMH Pacifica ink, Making Memories felt flowers, and American Crafts Elements Medium Glitter Brads.

This is a great size alphabet set for longer titles, subtitles, or when you only have a small space on your page.  I also love that it includes uppercase, lowercase, numbers and punctuation for just $17.95.

I have to admit that I started the title on this layout straight and for some reason couldn’t see the letter “o” correctly.  So I’m sharing a secret with you…even though the clear stamps are AWESOME for lining up exactly where you want them, sometimes that doesn’t work or we are plain lazy.  I love to move my letters around so they are intentionally not straight.  That way there is no messing up and look how cute and playful it looks on this layout!  It is also a good option if your title is a tight fit on the page because you can arrange the letters to take up less room.  Note that I stamped on textured cardstock and it stamped very clear, just make sure your ink pad is not dry so you get the good coverage.

This was actually a 4-page layout.  This is something I will do when I have a lot of pictures for a particular event.  I will scrapbook them in the same papers/embellishments so they are easily recognized as one event.  Here are the other pages:

A Girl is a Pearl Layout

Supplies used: DCWV paper, American Crafts Thickers Chipboard Alphabet Stickers, Baby Blue Stickles by Ranger, unknown brads.

This layout is for the September Challenge at Scrap Our Stash.  It’s Back To School but not the theme as it implies.  Instead, you choose your own B, T, and S.  For example, my challenge was B =Brads, T = Thickers, and S = Stickles.  I just love the colors of this layout!  And this DCWV paper is so easy to create a quick layout.  I use the Stickles to add some sparkle to the paper in the flower centers.  The brads are added to the flower centers on the middle right of the page, and I had to add a bit more Stickles to this area as well.  Last, the Thickers are used for the title.  I have such a hard time coming up with titles.  I found this one at The Perfect Title, my favorite place for ideas!  Here’s a closeup of the Stickles:

August 2012 CTMH Use Your Stash Blog Hop – Monochromatic

WELCOME!  I’m so glad you are joining us for our “Use Your Stash Blog Hop”.  If you have already started, you should be coming from Cherri Hardcastle’s Blog.  If this is your first stop, continue through until you make your way back here.  This month’s theme is monochromatic (using one color).

Supplies used: DCWV paper, CTMH Glitz Glitter Gel – Green, Just Blooms Paper Shapes – Flutter, and American Crafts Thickers Chipboard Alphabet Stickers.

I’m not much for monochromatic, however it is a great choice for busy photos.  My photos has so much color that by using one color in my layout it works well.  I used the Glitter Glitz (which I love!) to add some sparkle directly to the page.  I also used it to “color” my butterflies.  Here’s a closeup:

Now hop on over to Judy Faye Garner’s Blog for more ideas on using up your stash.
