The letters I used are really cute but I have to say you sure don’t get much in a package. I opened this and had to make the second “o” from the “q”. It worked but not exact. I think this is such a beautiful stamp set. I’m also going to make some “love” cards with it as well. Then, because I don’t care to thread buttons but I like the finished look, I tried something new. I added Stickles to the middle of my buttons. And I like it!! I just filled in the holes but I’m sure you could add more across the middle to appear like a stitch.
This layout is part of the Footloose Workshop on the Go Scrapbooking Kit. If you like this kit it is only available through July 31, 2012 while supplies last. I will try to post more of the kit later today. I used rock-n-roll stamping for the letters: First I inked the stamp in Creme Brulee, then I “rolled” the edges on the Sorbet ink pad. I cut the letters out and used my Edge Distresser for a fun look. You can see these details in this closeup:
There is also a number set to go along with this alphabet. I just love these for big titles.
These layouts were made by my friend Stacy. We enjoy scrapbooking together often and as you can see she loves Close to My Heart just as much as I do. I especially like how she added color to the flourishes as you can see in the above closeup. And I love that baby layout. I’m pretty sure I have some of that paper left to recreate a similar page.
