Good morning everyone,
I'm back this morning to share another layout with you using the cute new stamps and sweet cuts by Paper Sweeties.
I started this layout by stamping those cute little fish on the background, I stamped quite a few but some got covered up when I started to add the papers and embellishments.
I don't usually use colored photos but I have been lately. There have been a few layouts lately that I have used color pictures on them, I had found a bunch of old photos that I don't have copies of, so I'm using the original, and with these papers and stamps, it works great!
I had already stamped a bunch of little fishys, added a white mat around my photo and popped it up on 3D foam, so I started on my background.
I decided I wanted my picture towards the top and on the left because of the way he was looking. So I cut some paper strips and grabbed a few boarder stickers and layered them on the left side, ruffled the edges up and placed them down.
Once I had the paper strips down, I stuck my photo down on top of them and started water coloring the cute stamps in. This way they match the papers I'm working with too. I have to say that's one of the major things I love about using stamps!!
I added the title to the right of the photo, a mix of chipboard letters and some stickers, then I tucked that cute little treasure chest under the title to the right and a little pirate star down at the bottom of the title and under the photo. I added some cute little stripped and dotted hearts here and there.
Then I bounced to the bottom left corner and started adding embellishments there. I knew I wanted that tag, I tucked a hears and that cute scalloped circle behind it. I stamped sun kissed nose to the tag and along the paper strips. I knew that cute little pirate starfish would add a pop of yellow to the bottom of the layout, so I popped that cute little guy up on some foam adhesive. To finish off the layout I decided to add some stamped bubbles and then some teal and blue splatters.
I love what these stamps added to the layout, the cutness and whimsy, were just perfect!!
Make sure you go check out the rest of the ladies projects too!!
