I'm loving the Artistic Etching stamp set for my vintage work – I've used it on my last three layouts. I stole this idea nearly straight from the Impressions magazine – the monthly ideas magazine for Stampin' Up! Demonstrators. This is a layout "sketch" that can be adapted to be all themes:
The majority of the embellishments are clustered on the Top Note die in the upper left hand corner. Here is where you can play – just use bits and bobs you have around that match the colours and theme of your photo. Grouping them together makes a statement!
I think I could buy stock in Early Espresso and Cherry Cobbler.
Scrapbooking class tomorrow night in Bucklands Beach and August 18th on the North Shore.
