Sweet Baby : New Stamps & A Layout

Love

[ Supplies: Technique Tuesday Fundamentals Postage Frame; Technique Tuesday Sweet Baby Stamps; Making Memories Flower Patch Trim; Hambly Butterfly Transparency; Adirondack Dimensional Pearls in Butterscotch; SEI Praline Glitter Chocolat Paper Patterned Paper (white with grey) ]

AE-Sweet-Baby-Stamps

I am excited to introduce you to the newest stamp set in my collection for Technique Tuesday. Sweet Baby stamps are now available through Technique Tuesday's website or ask for them at your local scrapbook/stamp store. These same designs are also available as Digital Baby Word Art at Designer Digitals.

Howto

Layout1

Here's a run down of my process for creating the layout featured at the top of the post:

1. Begin with a sheet of textured white cardstock for your background. Paint a large rough-edged square in any color (I used cream paint and a foam brush). Let dry.

2. While the paint is drying, apply the Adirondack Dimensional Pearls to the Fundamentals Postage Frame. I put it on with my finger and then ended up adding a bit of lighter yellow paint on top of the pearls to tone it down just a bit.

3. Cut patterned paper to fit with the photo behind the postage frame. Adhere photo to patterned paper.

4. Stamp two of the Sweet Baby Stamps onto the patterned paper. Use a different color for each stamp. Hand-draw the black line and heart.

5. Adhere Making Memories Flower Patch Trim along the seam where the photo and patterned paper meet. I often use Therm-O-Web super tape to adhere ribbon. 

6. Adhere the postage frame to the photo/stamped patterned paper combination. I used the super tape for this task.

7. Using one of the lined sentiments from the Sweet Baby collection, stamp directly on to the painted postage chipboard. I used Technique Tuesday ink from the Earth Essentials pack.

8. Staple the Hambly Butterfly Transparency on top of your painted piece of cardstock. I just used two mini staples on the top corners using Tim's new mini-stapler which is awesome.

9. Lay your photo combination on top of the background transparency/cardstock and choose your placement. I went for the bottom right corner. Once I figured out where I wanted that piece on the page I lifted up the transparency, laid the photo combination on top of the cardstock (not adhered, just sitting there) and journaled around the outside following the square shape.

10. After hand-journaling I picked up the photo combination, laid the transparency back down, and then adhered the photo combination on top of the transparency (using the hand-journaling square as a guide for placement). Some of the journaling is covered by the white of the butterflies which I decided was completely fine. If someone wants to read the journaling they can lift up the transparency (this is partly why I only stapled on the top). 

11. Don't forget to add the date! I just noticed that I forgot to add a date somewhere on the layout and will make that adjustment before pu
tting it in her album.

    I LOVE when you show how you make a page. I've never attended any type of scrapbooking classes. When you show a HOW TO it is such a help. Also, very interesting! Thanks

    Ali- this is so gorgeous. And I have to let you know... I'm in Australia and have looked in EVERY shop around for your Technique Tuesday stamps, but today, for the first time, I found one, in a town more than an hour from home. (happy dance!) I bought your 'Capture the Moment' stamp today and I can't wait to use it! Thanks for your constant inspirations!

    I love it when you document your process in creating a layout ... it helps me 'see' how to do it. Not that I could come up with it on my own, but it is just fun to see an expert in action!
    And this layout is simply sweet and beautiful ... wonderful job (on baby and layout! lol)

    This layout is absolutely adorable, and so inspiring, you used so many, but very "do- able" techniques. When I see your babypages, I can hardly wait to become a grandmom...

    Ali - great layout! Love the transparency technique. Question (maybe you've answered already). . . what is the fabric Anna is laying on? A sheet? A comforter? Is it a part of her room, or from somewhere else in your home? At any rate, I LOVE the mustard color and print!

    I love seeing how you are adapting your style to include girl/baby pages. I would like to hear you thought on this. Do you think differently about Anna's pages?

    That's a good question Kim. I will have to think about it the next time I am creating a layout to see if I think differently about them as I am making them.
