Welcome to the August’s Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop. This is a circular hop. If you arrived from Lauren’s Blog, you are in the right place. Simply read through this post and click on the link to the next blog at the end of it. Keep reading and ‘hopping’ until you find yourself back where you started from. Each blog will showcase a project featuring the For the Love of Crafting (S1808) stamp set which is August’s Stamp of the Month.
This stamp set will speak to your crafty heart for sure! Craftiness IS happiness and I think we should all celebrate this part of our life in our albums.
Today’s page is the first page in my crafting chapter of my Book of Me Albums. This is an ongoing project I’ve been working on for years. I record all sorts of information about myself across all ages in these albums. I have a stack of photos of different craft projects over the years that will go on the pages following this one. I think I will just make the paper frame and stamp ‘I love crafting’ as I’ve done for this layout and mount the photos along with their stories – nice and simple.
Stamping the decorative sentiments from the stamp set in Pewter ink kept them a subtle accent on the page.
I love this stamp, Heartfelt Thanks, because it is so delicate and feminine. I thought it made a great title block.
