Hello there! Lots going on today ~ not only is it National Scrapbooking Day but it Day 1 of the Waltzingmouse Stamps May Previews! Over the next 4 days, Claire, many of the WMDT members and myself will be sharing some inspiring samples featuring the new THREE stamp sets that will be for sale beginning Tuesday, May 8th in the Waltzingmouse Stamps store.
WARNING: this post contains LOTS of photos!!!
Today we are previewing: Half Pink Heroines ~ another Waltzingmouse stamp set that is FULL of so many versatile images and sentiments. First up, I have a layout to share featuring a photo of my sweet step daughter, Meredith.
Rather than journaling on my layout, (something I would not rather do), I inked up and stamped FIVE of the sweet girly sentiments:I've been enjoying making lots of my own flowers lately using Spellbinders Rose Creations and Bitty Blossoms dies along with some foliage that was made using Tim Holtz Grunge board. If you are curious to know how I made those pretty raspberry and pink blooms, click HERE for the tutorial.
Next up is a She Art style mini book that I made for Meredith featuring Meredith ;) What teenager doesn't like a book dedicated to them about them?! :)
***NOTE: This mini book was made using LOTS of Waltzingmouse Stamps ALL listed below along with patterned paper from the Pink Paislee She Art collection.
So the story begins:
Before I started inking and painting this book, I rummaged through my Waltzingmouse Stamps, in search of all sets that had small bits and pieces to be used in lieu of rub ons ~ I was in stamp HEAVEN!!!
For layout sketch inspiration, I played along with the current Girlie Grunge challenge:
