Stamping Scrapbooker!

I have been scrapbooking since about 1998ish.  I LOVE to scrapbook but I can safely say that I haven't finished an actual layout in quite sometime.  I started making card about 2007 when my dear friend Jen got me hooked on this "other" hobby!  :)  BUT, the great thing about these hobbies, is that they are not separate at all!  If you are a scrapbooker you have just about everything you need to make a card!  And I love how stamps can make a layout just as amazing as the typical scrapbook supplies!  I see so many of my PTI sets as a great add on to any layout! 

Recently Nichole Heady has been posting some layouts and I have loved to see her creations!  So here is a page with a little Nichole inspiration and a whole 'lotta stamping!

Everything about this page was made with a stamp!  OH and I used some of that fabulous Orange Divine Twine on this page too!  Check it out HERE!

So if you ever hear that stampers can't be scrapbookers and scrapbookers can't be stampers here is proof of how fun it can be!!

Thanks for stopping by today!

  5. I love this layout Laurie! I have been a total scrapbooking slacker, because I don't like how long they take to finish, but you have inspired me to use my stamps and make it easy! Thanks girl!

  8. I think my favorite part of this layout other than that sweet picuture of the kiddos, is that sunshine pocket you created for the journaling card. Your notebook lines are PERFECT!!! I haven't scrapbooked in almost 2 years!

  16. Great layout! So much fun!! I like using stamping on my layouts, too. It's nice to be able to create beautiful cards and layouts with both my card-making and scrapbooking supplies!! It really is so much better to get multiple uses from so many supplies!

  18. So adorable, Laurie!! I started as a "scrapbooker" but am so intimidated by the ideal of "getting it just right..." I really need to get doing that again! Esp with the new journaling stuff that PTI has been putting out!
    BTW, there's another challenge up on my blog if you're interested! ;)

  20. What a lovely layout! I would love to be a scrapbooker, but I'm so much of a perfectionist and it takes me so dang long! Exactly why I love card making. I guess it wouldn't hurt to print out a few pictures here and there and give it a go, however. I just need to do it! Thanks for the inspiration!
