Thrifty Thursday: Using stamps as embellishments
So because I missed my Maternity Monday's bump update on the bank holiday as I was entertaining family - I thought that I would share my bump at 26 weeks layout. (Actually I have just realised that I missed my bump update for the whole month of May - its been crazy with exams and coursework deadlines at school!) My scrapbooking has been increasingly more thrifty and resourceful recently as everything is boxed up and so I am working with limited supplies - but it means that I am rediscovering old passions like stamping and embossing. The main embellishement on this layout is washi tape and then a stamped tag with the title and small little heart stamps to emphasise the pictures.
This second layout was created in probably 15 minutes. I used an old Studio Calico 6 by 6 pad and then on the ledger paper used washi tape and embossed alpha stamps to add the title. I also embossed the little Amy Tan his'n'hers icon - which I felt went along with this photo, which was taken on our 3rd anniversary getaway to the Lake District.
Over the last few days I completed a mini album of my baby pics and have been loving adding sequins as embellishment. I felt that with only six weeks to go till due date I needed to get that completed before starting on my own baby scrapping!
What techniques have you been rediscovering?
