From now until Friday you can grab this new stamp set for only $12.99 in the Precious Remembrance Shop!  This is the perfect date stamp with a ton of possibilities!  Today I want to share how I used it in a bit of a different way to create a pattern for my layout!

I began by using the little grid stamp that you would normally stamp in the Month Day Year and using it to create a fun pattern on my white 8.5×11 cardstock!  I stamp it on the bottom and top corner and love how it came out!  I was unsure how it would look in the end but after stamping it a ton of times I just love it!

I then added some strips of paper from my December Clique Kit on a diagonal and placed my photo down!  I added some embellishments from the kit and also the You Are Loved collection from Bella Blvd.  One of the stamps in this set says On This Day…I stamped that out on some white cardstock and stuck it down on a tag top with a little heart!  Love how it came out!

You can see I also used some splatter stamps from Precious Remembrance shop!  I highly recommend these stamps if you like the look of splatter without the mess!!  You have total control of where you put your ink splats!  Check out the Happy Art and the Positive Thoughts stamp set for my favorite splatters!

The last thing I added was the month and year the photo was taken!  I just love this font so much!!!  So much fun!!  Here is a look at my completed layout for the blog hop!

Pretty Little Studio Guest Designer & Giveaway

I have had such a great time being the Guest Designer for Pretty Little Studio!  The Here Comes the Sun collection was so fun to work with and I still have a lot of product and projects to share so stay tuned!  Today I want to share two more layouts using this awesome collection designed by Marie-Pierre Capistran!  This first layout I used The Hello Hearts cut file from The Cut Shoppe!

I just love the colors in this collection and fun backing this cut file with the beautiful papers!  The photo is of my little Eli and my niece.  I love the how light and airy this layout turned out!

My next layout used the Addicted to Love cut file from The Cut Shoppe and I just love this cut file!!  I backed some of the file with pattern paper from the Here Comes the Sun collection and added some black cardstock behind some of the tiny hearts.

I just love the die cuts in the Here Comes the Sun collection so I added some around my photo and backed my photo with lots of paper scraps from backing the cut file!  Here is a look at the final layout and a few more close ups!

I used the Yay! stamp that comes in the set and stamped it out on my 12×12 paper.  I did mask off half of the paper and used black ink to stamp out the word and then stamped it out once in yellow ink!  I had a few small scraps of the yellow and white stripe paper that came in the kit and wanted the yellow to pop!(Thanks for that suggestion Sandy!)  The photo I am documenting is of the Clique Co Founders in the Simple Stories both at CHA 2015!  My first time at CHA and first time getting to meet the Simple Stories crew!  Pretty awesome!

I added a handful of different layers behind the photo and of coarse had to use the beautiful yellow enamel hearts from Bella Blvd!!  Look for more colors coming to the shop soon!  Here is a look at my finished layout!
