Just a Little Stamping...

This week at Simon Says Stamp and Show, we are talking all things tiny. Well, tiny stamps to be exact. We challenge you to use a small stamp, or use a stamp in some small way on your project. You could finish a project with a bit of stamping on an edge, use a tiny heart stamp, or perhaps you’ve got some small stamp on a set that you’ve yet to use. Now would be the time!

Want to use stamps in a big way too? Well you could! Feel free to run the opposite direction and do a tiny bit of BIG stamping! It’s all good - and we can’t wait to see your stamped creations!

Since today is my birthday, I decided to put some of the adorable Amy Tangerine stamp sets to good use and scrap up a page all about me, right now at the big three - five!


To get an idea of my placement, I worked up a quick little layered grouping using some tags, glassine bags, Mint Julep and Heidi Swapp...

Then, I just marked that area out with a pencil:

And played around with where to put all of those cute little images:

Then, I simply grabbed some embossing powder...

And got them all on the page! I chose to do the "hello" in white as it will form part of my title:

The best part about cute little stamps is the BIG impact they can have... especially when used in a grouping!

Now, I just need to revisit all of those layers...

There. With that all set, I simply used all of those icons for prompts as I journaled away...

With that done and embellishments in place... 

Here we have it!

I just love how easily that came together - thanks to all of those fun little stamps!

Hello 35...

Here's to a good year!

And now it's your turn! Go get crafty and link-up with us.
