August stamp of the Month "School Years"

Hello and welcome to the August Stamp of the Month blog Hop, if you arrived here from  Doreen's blog you are in the right place. If you arrived here by chance I hope you see something you like. To continue the hop click on the link at the end of this post.

The  august stamp of the month "School Years" S1708 is perfect for all you school photos, or a card for a teacher. Don't you just love the trio of cute hearts.

These layouts are of my nieces two children, and what great kids they are. I love spending time with them and creating memorable layouts with the photos I take of them. Although these photos are actually the yearly photos taken at school.

For this first layout I used bright and fun colours and quite a simple design. I really like the stamp that allows you to add the relevant details about the students. I added the wood frame stamp on top of a piece of black cardstock to create a blackboard.  The pencils were coloured using the Shin Han Markers.

The second layout uses more subtle colours and is also a rather simple design even still I really like these different but great designs. I fussy cut around the word balloon and then stamped the sentiment inside it. The You're a Star stamp is from an old stamp set and is no longer available.

I hope you are getting lots of great ideas for this stamp set. To continue the hop click here to go to Nell Ward's blog, she will have something special to share. Please take a moment and leave a comment, they are always very appreciated.

  5. Beautiful bright, happy layouts Doris! Love them both! And I love pages that use a mismatch of new and old products (my favourite way to scrap!)
