Another great Cocoa Daisy month! Today some of the design team gals are sharing how they one, two or three of the stamp sets (possible even four if you count the Planner kit that I don't get) on projects today. I have a layout not only using THREE of the stamp sets but cards from the Day in the Life kit, the exclusive patterned papers, print and cut files and the digital cut files and other great kit goodies! Talk about a lot of goodness all on one page!
Each of the circles is a pocket card that I punched using a 2 inch punch other than the two with the "take a message" circular stamp which is just on white cardstock. I love that you can use the pocket cards for things other than their intended use. Smaller canvases that are great on their own in pockets or on layouts as modified canvases.
I used the dotted line to create another layer between the bigger strip and the thinner, green strip at the top of the layout. I could have easily traipsed upstairs and stitched a line but decided that the stamp would allow me to have a similar look without having to leave my scrappy space! Stamp for the win!
Above is a stamp from the exclusive stamp set from the Build Your Own options this month. Having just spent 9-10 days out at Sequoia and Yosemite and a lot of time outdoors, I just knew I NEEDED this stamp set for out outdoor adventures. I have used it a lot already. You will certainly see it scattered as a continuous theme through out my vacation pages. Look at the detail in that stamp! So crisp and clean! And, of course, the digital cut file and the "this" from the exclusive print and cut files.
The smaller pine cone stamped on the green circle is also from the exclusive set I mentioned above. The numbers that I used to stamp the year are from the Day In the Life kit. Also in the stamp set are the days of the week. Just perfect for pocket scrapping or planners for that matter. I also used the main stamp set to create that little label that the birdie is sitting on and fussy cut it. Looks just like a die cut label, doesn't it?!
Fun with circles and stamping today! Do you stamp on your layouts? I used to be really afraid to do it... I was terrified that I would make a mistake and that would be that for the layout... There is no room for disaster with my Type A personality. I have truly grown more comfortable with it as I stamp more and more on my layouts. I almost can't create a layout unless I have stamped on it these days.
