Hello and welcome aboard our Stamp of the month Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop. If you have arrived here from Mandy’s Blog, Hall of Indulgence, then you are in the right place. If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post.
Today I would like to share a scrapbook page which features the February Stamp of the Month, Wild About Love, S1402A available exclusively throughout February for $24 or for just $5 when you spend $75.
My husband and I recently celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary. Now, you would think a die hard scrap booker like myself would have been a little more pro-active in the photo taking department but we only have one photo from our ‘date’. So, I needed a layout that used up lots of free space on the page! I decided to veer away from blocks of paper and use the Wild About Love stamps to enhance the story. I like to think this page represents the naïve artist within me.
To begin I stamped the Wild Things title at the bottom of the page, overlapping to give the effect of undulating grass. I covered the words with a strip of co-ordinating paper. I lay my 6 1/2″ x 2″ block over the stamped image and curved the 2 foxes stamp to make it look like they were standing on the grass.
The 29 love hearts (one for each year and one for good luck) were stamped in first and second generation ink. I finished it off with my numbers cut on the Cricut.
