Today we have a super fun treat! Our friend, May, is sharing an awesome layout with us!
Hello! May Flaum here – and I’m excited to be sharing some ideas for using those stamps onto your next scrapbook layout. I’m teaching a class on this right now and since some of my favorite stamps to use are Lawn Fawn this seems like a great place to share those ideas too! Now cute images and little shapes can be a challenge – the real key is to tie them in with another page component such as the edge of a piece of paper or photo.
Another great way to use them? Use them like stickers! I love that Lawn Fawn has dies to coordinate with the stamps making my work so much easier – and saving loads of cutting time!
This makes me super happy because I get to color and play – with no risk of messing up my layout. Then when I’m done I can just place my stamped paper shapes anywhere I’d like. Speaking of anywhere I’d like – I also like to add faint stamped accents by stamping in a color very close to the cardstock I’m working on for a subtle accent.
All that stamping – and some flair and my favorite new paper (heart polka!) and I’ve got myself a new layout that I love.
Things really did come together quickly for this – such a fun way to get inky and preserve memories too. Another way that I like to use my Lawn Fawn stamps on my scrapbook pages (or pocket pages!) is to stamp, color, and cut out or die-cut pieces to create custom journaling cards! Here is one I just made for a future camping trip.
