Using Stamps to Scrapbook-Blog Hop!

This weeks blog hop is alot of fun! Because it takes me back to my first love....scrapbooking! I started scrapbooking about 10 years ago and it is like an addiction! I have tried to stop....but I can't! Then stamping came along and made it all the more fun!

You know when you are looking for that certain something that you just can't put your finger on? An embellisment? a piece of patterened paper? Well, for me, the stamps have added that! You can make your own personalized buttons, embellishments, patterened paper or just about anything!

This first page uses the April Stamp of the Month! This is a really cute set that made the most fun background paper! I just randomly stamped across a piece of white cardstock and there you have it! Homemade patterened paper! (The picture was for Rylee's Birthday invites when she turned 4!)



This page was really fun too! Can you believe I actually cut those scallops out with scissors? Crazy I know! Then if you can see in the bottom right corner, I stamped with TAC's Curls and Swirls in white ink! It just gave the page that fun added touch to make it look complete! (The pics are of Rylee's 4th Birthday! I am not trying for a theme here! haha)


Deco Designs is one of my favorite sets and I think it makes the cutest border! I love this page, mostly because I love the pics of Rylee, but I love the stamping detail as well!



I have posted this page before but since I used a TAC set I thought I would put it on here again! I used Springtime for this page and I think it turned out so fun! The leaf stamps made adorable touchs at the bottom and I just love the tree! I also added the date with Date Disks on the bottom right!



All of this had really put me in the mood to scrapbook! You will definitley see more stamping and scrapbooking posts soon! Now go and check out all the other creations from these talented Angels...












Thanks for stopping by!

These are awesome layouts Laurie. I love your explanations about how you are always ready to scrap when you have stamps, because you just create your own pp, and embellishments.
