OWOT week 7!

Bit late posting this as it was from last weekend, but trying to get caught up...

February Technique - Stamping
This Week's Word - Love

I don't do a lot of stamping, although I do own quite a few stamps as I do love them! But I wouldn't normally stamp on a layout, so I thought I would take this approach for this weeks prompt. I decided to take a slightly different path for the 'love ' prompt and rather than a page about the people I love I decided to do one on my love of ITALY!!

Here's a photo taken as I was putting the page together. I used a heart stamp to create a background on the blue card stock, a small alphabet stamp set to create the title, a foam heart stamp to make the smaller hearts.

I used an Amy Tangerine paper for the background, some bakers twine from My Minds Eye, Crate Paper Farmhouse paper, a very old Imaginisce paper and some pink and brown ink and an Elles Studio date tag! I added the word happiness stamped with brown ink using an old Heidi Swapp library stamp around the journalling.

Here's a close up of the stamping.

So, hope you join us in using your stamps this week and if you make something lovely, please link us up!

Happy creating!

Scrapbook Magazine

I have a layout commission in the new issue of Scrapbook magazine, which I loved doing. I was sent a little kit from Pickleberry papercrafts and we could use it how we liked. I had these lovely photos of Freya in a poppy field and I knew they would go great together.

The mag is full of great pages, ideas and lovely papers and embellishments to drool over!
