I wanted to show you today how easy it is to use the September Stamp of the Month, Fall Favorites, on a layout.
Where did this little boy go? As the mother of an adult child, I am so glad that I was never a chronological scrapbooker. I really enjoy going back, looking through these memories, and putting them to paper now.
I know many people are hesitant to incorporate stamping into a layout. Let me tell you about all the stamping I did on this layout. The leaves at the top are from the stamp set Harvest Happiness. The rest of the stamps - border, scarecrow, pumpkins, "fall," jounraling spot, and "pick o'the patch," are all from the September Stamp of the Month. Because of all the coloring that I did with the awesome alcohol markers, there wasn't a need for printed paper or even a lot of matting. (If you'd like to see the coloring a little better, just click on the photo to make it larger.) The burlap ribbon lends itself well to this stamp set, don't you think?
I think you might see a lot more of this stamp set. It's just so cute and a lot of fun to use!! I am going to enter this into a challenge:
