Clearsnap and Stamps of Life Blog Hop FALL 2013

Welcome to The Clearsnap & {The Stamps} of Life by Stephanie Barnard Blog Hop! All day today we're stamping and inking, creating and sharing. Be sure to visit everyone on the hop and leave a comment to be entered to win a fabulous prize of Stephanie Barnard's line of ColorBox inkpads, Stephanie Barnard Sprays!, and Stephanie's new SCREENS!


Today I created a scrapbook layout using only scraps of paper, a white pen, and {The Stamps} of Life by Stephanie Barnard “Birds & Tree” Stamps + Die Set from Sizzix paired with Stephanie Barnard's ColorBox Archival Dye Inkpads. This layout is part of the Daily Scrapbook Page series over at the Layout-A-Week blog!


The diecuts and stamps were super easy to use together to create a whimsical border across the top of the layout :


I think my fave part are the word bubble die cuts!!!


Here's a vid, showing how to make this page from start to finish:
