 May 2015 Stamp of the Month
"Just Sayin'"

Get all the details HERE

In keeping with my focus on storytelling through scrapbooking, I used our SOTM to embellish a layout that documents a really special day I spent with my youngest grandson. Having just turned three, he's active, happy, full of fun, and an absolute joy to be around. One-on-one time with each of my g-kids is something I treasure and this day was no exception:

I've taken to digging into my Fundamentals Paper Packs to create layouts. These paper packs offer great color and pattern choices for photo-focused layouts. This layout features a color combo of Outdoor Denim, Canary, Cranberry, Pear, and White Daisy.

Here are some of the embellishments I made using our Stamp of the Month

I also used a couple of tried and true alphabet stamp sets: Token Alphabet and Poster Board. Both are retired but remain on active duty in my craft room! You can check out the current selection of Alphabet Stamp Sets right HERE.

Thanks for hopping by. Your next stop is BARB who is sure to have something special to share!

  8. What a cutie! And what a perfect layout for him. You're such an inspiration, Marg!

  9. I admire your work so much Marg....again you have hit it out of the ballpark. Love all the little details and the use of the May SOTM with the font is really cute. Your subject is adorable and your love for him shines through in these pictures. Just love it!

  10. "Oh Boy" is exactly what I said when I saw this layout. I know this is about the stamps BUT can I just say how amazing that layout is?? It's so perfect for so many things. I looooooove all of the pictures.
