Welcome to the Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop. This is a circular hop. If you arrived from Maz’s blog, Arty Maz , 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 Besties (S1905) stamp set which is May’s Stamp of the Month.
This set is just so pretty! It’s perfect for pages about relationships. Today I’m sharing a layout that celebrates the bond between my mum, my daughter and me. When we visit, mum is happy – we fill her love cup to overflowing. She, in turn, always makes us smile.
This layout features May’s Exclusive Papers, The World Is Yours. The water wash background paper made the RH page so quick to complete. A strip of the same paper plus a vellum overlay (also in the pack) forms the base of the LH page.
Hints and Tips
The stamp set features 2 women but I needed 3. A little bit of masking fixed that! Use full adhesive sticky notes to make masking a breeze.
‘Mother’ and ‘ Grandmother’ come from another limited edition stamp set called For My Mother. It is only available until the end of May.
The vertical border was created with the scallop stamp from Besties layered onto Blush Shimmer Ribbon.
Two hearts and a few bitty sparkles open and close the story for this layout.
Create photo tabs easily by stamping onto a strip of cardstock and corner rounding the upper two corners. This is a fun way to add details, labels or journaling to your layout.
