Scrapbook Page #2 by Ann Jobes

I was thrilled and excited when Karen of Your Next Stamp asked if I could show how her stamps can be used on scrapbook pages. I was familiar with her stamps and knew I could work with them with ease!

Here is the second layout I created:

This time, I worked with Fhiona and Her Pony to accent my double layout. The stamped image is coloured with watercolour pencils and layered on patterned paper and a diecut cardstock.

I love the coordinating dies and stamps available at YNS, and this CrissCross Border die and stamp were a perfect way to trim my page and create continuity across both pages. Stitching the pieces together I think adds to the western feel I was trying to achieve on this page.

I did not want to add a journaling block because I like the placement of the elements already, so I lightly brushed gesso over the patterned paper to fade it out enough to journal right on top. A few western charms further accent the page.

Do you see those 3-D star embellishments? Here’s how to make them:

Thank you, Karen, for allowing me to work (who’s kidding who, it’s play!) with your fabulously fun and whimsical stamps. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and hope you feel inspired to use Your Next Stamps on your next layout!
