GIU Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of the last week of Growing in Unity for 2015! 
This layout is of my cousin and her family. I used Craft Smith Watercolor 12 x 12" Scrapbook Pad again for this layout. All of the stamps are from a Unity Itty Bitty assortment. I used VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink to stamp them. The photo mats are also from Craft Smith Watercolor pad.
close-up of the stamp beside the boys'snow picture, the journaling states (From left to right) Thomas, Christopher, Trever, & Alexander Stuever- February 2015 I fussy cut the snowflake out of a piece of 6 x 6" paper that was a RAK from a Scrappin' Gals of SMASH*aholics group on Facebook that I'm a part of. the hearts stamp kinda double set, but it's not that bad
close-up of True Happiness stamp
close-up of Bee Happy stamp and jar- one of 6 Jar of Hearts free printable set I used to receive e-mails  from Ephemera's Vintage Garden- on which I wrote Pat is the oldest grandchild & my cousin on my dad's- Rhodes- side
the stickers- laughter, family, and a day to celebrate- are part of Creative Memories Tinted Tile Stickers
I printed out that this picture is of Jeremi & Pat Stuever on 15th Wedding Anniversary Trip 2015

Please leave me a comment and come back tomorrow. I can't wait for you to see what I have to share! :)  I will be featured on Unity Stamp Company as Growing in Unity gal tomorrow. TFL!

The ray gun is really cute. I was so focused on making cards with my Unity Stamps that I didn't even think about them for scrapbook pages lol. Thanks for sharing your ideas.

I started scrapbooking way before stamping and I never thought about using stamps in my books. I do have a question for you, why do you stamp on separate pieces of paper and then cut and paste them in your book?

Amanda Rhodes said...

Lisa, the stamps look better on white paper because of the ink I use. VersaFine shows fine details and most of the paper I use is dark or is not plain. I also have to stamp on a flat surface away from my self-healing mat to get the best quality of the stamp.
