Make it Monday, Scrapbooking

With you Mini Layout

CC instagram-Make it

Hello!  I have a special treat for you all today….the return of Make it Monday AND a pic of me and the hubs!!  I rarely make it into pictures, as I am the one taking most of them!  I snapped this selfie with my hubby a few months ago and decided it deserved it’s own layout.  I was challenged by a friend to create a border with stamped images that were fussy cut out.  I knew right away what stamp set I wanted to use!


Trinity Stamps has a beautiful Winter Botanicals stamp and die set that worked perfectly for what I wanted to do.  I started by smooshing some Distress Oxide inks in Peacock feathers and Black Soot on Canson watercolor paper.  I stamped the images using black ink and then heat embossed in clear EP.  I really wanted a simple color palette, so I watercolored the images in using the same ink with a touch of Abandoned Coral for some added interest..


A hidden journaling tag behind the picture lets me say all the things I want to say and still let the picture shine as the focus of my layout.  I added my title by mixing up phrases from Trinity Stamps Magical Sentiments set and heat embossing them in white EP on strips of black cardstock.  I love how it all came together so easily!


Thanks for stopping by and seeing me today, hope to *see* you again soon!!
