As soon as I saw these Cat's Life Press stamps I HAD to have them:
Well, as you can see, they are meant for stamping the backs of mini books and other altered items. But why not use them on scrapbook pages?! I especially liked the saying on the bottom half of the mini book stamp. So I decided to use them to create an element of my page, a border.
Since we don't want the words to overwhelm the page use an ink that is slightly darker than your background paper.
Stamp a row of the image and use something to over the “Mini Book” words or unwanted part of the stamp. At first I thought I would use this tag:
…but then I decided to just use my photos to cover the unwanted parts of the stamped images.
Here's my final page, with some extra embellies:
Paper – Basic Grey, Sassafras Lass, Cosmo Cricket
Journal Spots & Tags – K & Co, Paper Tales LSS, Cosmo Cricket
Stickers- Cosmo Cricket, Basic Grey, Crate Paper
Alphas – American Crafts
Ink – Stampin Up!, Colorbox
Pen – EK Success
Rub-Ons – October Afternoon
Stamp – Cat's Life Press
Hope you're inspired to think outside of your stamps' purpose and use them for something different.
