Stamping in Scrapbooks Blog Hop

This was such a fun layout to make as I absolutely adore these pictures of Sadie! These were taken about a month ago when she was almost a year old.

The stamps I used are TAC's Level B Hostess Set "Floral Labels" and the TAC "Punctuation" set which is great for journaling! I also used TAC's "Linear Sentiments" for a border (stamped in VersaMark) on the red paper.

You can see the journal lines from the "Punctuation" set in the closeup photo above. I first stamped the image on the cardstock. Then, I journaled on my computer using a table with the same number of lines and the same height and width of the stamp. Then, I printed the journaling on a scratch piece of paper and used a light box to line up the stamped journal lines with the journaling. Then, I taped the cardstock on top of the scratch paper and ran it through my printer again. This allowed the journaling to be right where I wanted it to be within the journaling lines. I adhered it to the page using pop dots.

The green background cardstock is DCWV Apple Green 2 and the red is one of my favorites, Scarlet. The white scalloped paper is from the new Scalloped paper pack that TAC has in the Serendipity Magalogue and it is one 8x8 piece of the paper, cut so that I could use it on both pages!

The floral labels are stamped on the pink piece of paper from the "Lilly Anna" paper pack in Giverny Green & Lamore Red Palette ink. The pink scalloped cardstock on the layout is from the Pinks & Red Violets Monochromatic cardstock pack, cut with my cloud scissors.

This is a cloesup of the title box. I printed the sentiment from the computer and then stamped the corner flower image in Giverny Green Palette ink. It is very hard to see in this photo, but I also stamped a row of flowers using the "Linear Sentiments" set with Chartreuse Palette ink on both the top and bottom of the box. I used a glitter gel pen to add just a touch of sparkle to the flower images (you could also use stickles). It is also popped up with pop dots.

Here is a closeup of the scarlet paper (which looks more orangey than scarlet in these photos). I stamped the flower image from the "Floral Labels" set using VersaMark ink and then also stamped a row of the flowers from the "Linear Sentiments" on the side & bottom edges of the cardstock to add a subtle element to the page.
