This month's stamp set is In This Moment, a set of 12 stamps that I will be using over and over again! The overall theme of the stamp set is love, and I plan to use them for layouts, cards, little gifts, and more. The trendy arrows and general phrases are useful for tons of other things too.
For today, I chose to scrapbook a two-page layout:
I combined the stamp set with the Heartstrings line from our Seasonal Expressions catalog to highlight these sweet pictures of my girls playing in our backyard when they were little. I also added an extra sheet of Hollyhock cardstock for the second page base.
Combining the stamped element with some sticker elements from the Heartstrings Complements pack makes a nice addition to the title area.
I used the target image on multiple size circles that I cut with the Artbooking Cricut cartridge. A 2.25" circle holds the entire image, as shown, while a 1.75" and 1.25" circles will frame a partial image. I used a badge button from the Heartstrings Assortment in the center of the full sized circle, and a light pink heart from the Stuck on You Puffies in the smaller target.
I balanced the layout using another target image on the other side. In addition, I added the "XOXO" sentiment to the corner, and used several stamped arrows in my journaling area.
