This weeks challenge at lasting memories is to stamp your layout.
You can stamp directly onto your layout,
stamp and fussy cut around it before adhering to your layout
or even use a digital stamp. The choice is yours
I decided I would create patterned paper by stamping my background page
and coloring some of the stamped images
I picked up this cute little stamp in the dollar bin
at the grand opening of the Joann fabric store in Eugene.
This is what the background looks like after stamping and coloring
And here's the whole layout of my husbands birthday last year.
For over the last decade we have had an unofficial tradition of having track town pizza ( the Hammer- Pepperoni, linguica and pepperoncini) and an ice cream cake to celebrate, this year we broke the tradition and went with a take and bake from papa Murphy's.
Next year it's back to tradition
Close up of all the mixed elements I added to the layout.
I really like how well all the elements came together even thought they are from different companies.
Bingo card is recycled from an actual bingo game.
Making a wish and the die cut candle are Creative memories but different birthday packs several years apart
The present card is from a more recent purchase of Bo Bunny birthday paper.
Almost forgot about the mini gem rhinestones in the middle of my punched boarder.
Starting to feel like Tina ( LMDT sister) who usually piles on the embellies.
