April Documentarian Jen Gallacher | Take One

It is time for the first project post by our April Documentarian, Jen GallacherDon't miss out on her introduction from last Friday==> CLICK HERE.  I am so thrilled with the gorgeous layout she created and I have already learned so much!

Ladies and gentleman, Jen....



Have you tried using stamps on your scrapbooking layouts? Stamping for scrapbooking is an easy way to fully customize your scrapbooking layouts. I was super excited to use several die and stamp sets from Winnie and Walter to create this beautiful layout. Keep reading for some instructions on how I created this layout. Be sure to pin your favorite images for inspiration later!

How to Add Stamps to a Scrapbooking Layout:

Step 1: Use a stencil, a foam applicator, and yellow stamping to create a diagonal pattern on white cardstock.


Step 2: Using a variety of yellows and greens, stamp and die cut flowers, leaves, and a title for the layout.


Step 3: Use the stamp rectangle shape dies to die cut two different sizes of photo frames from green cardstock. This will require the use of a manual die cut machine.


Step 4: Using the manual die cut machine, cut a variety of shapes from purple patterned paper and black patterned paper.


Here's a look at the finished layout. You can see I added some additional embellishments, and journaling to make this page really pop. But most of my items are die cut, stenciled or stamped items from Winnie and Walter. What's so amazing about these types of projects is that I can continue to use these items for future projects. Now that's stretching your supplies.
