Storytelling With Stamps | S & A

Next up in my Storytelling With Stamps series is a project that features the 6 inch x 8 inch Alpha Stamp, the Catch Phrases Stamp Set, the Ali Phrases 4x6 Stamp Set, and the Hearts 6x8 Stamp Set. This project is a great example of using a variety of stamps together to support a story. 

I'm continuing to really have fun playing with projects and spreads that are outside of page protectors - especially getting to play around with interactive elements on the page. 

Here's a look at how this project came together: 

Here's a look at the finished project: 

For this project I paired a full page photo foundation with a star pattern paper from the Star Scrapbook Kit. On top of the photo foundation I added a speech bubble heart which was cut out of a 12x12 sheet of pattern paper from the Heart Scrapbook Kit. Along the bottom of the first page I added text before printing and stapled a folder over sticker tab above the text. 

On top of the speech bubble I cut out from the pattern paper I used one of the textured heart stamps + one of the "and" stamps from the Catch Phrases Set (using a fun bright pink from this Tim Holtz Ink set) + black puffy alpha stickers + a word/phrase sticker + a rolling date stamp.

To create the interactive heart on the second page I started with one of the large hearts from a 12 inch x 12 inch pattern paper from the Heart Story Kit

On top of the heart I used the 6x8 Uppercase Alpha to repeat stamp "movies" and then used the Ali Phrases 4x6 Stamp Set to add the quote in-between the lines of text. On top of that I added a peach plastic heart and a chipboard heart from a previous kit. 

Under the stamped heart I adhered a heart photo + journaling. I used the digital version of the Heart Scrapbook Kit (did you know that when you subscribe to our Quarterly Scrapbook Kit you also get the digital version for free - you can also purchase it separately here) to create a home for my photo and my words. A small mini-brad was used to attach the top + bottom together and create the interactive piece. 

Here's a video that shows you how I created a template to hold my photo + words from the pattern paper:

    I love this!! How big are the heart stamps on the 6x8 Heart Stamp set? I was thinking it would be cool to stamp them, cut them out and make pockets out of them if they werent too small.🙂

    I love this layout with the interactive element. I'm loving the oval titles, storytelling with stamps in bright colors. I would love to see a sheet of just oval labels in all these bright colors. So fun.
