Today I wanted to show you the stamp set in action on a project life spread since that is my first crafty love. First I made a couple of PL cards seen here:
When I make PL cards, I don't always know what I will do with them or how I will use them. After these were made, I printed my pictures and started figuring out the spread. This led me to make a change to my weekly card above.
I had a picture of my son surfing that fit perfectly underneath the circle on the card, so I cut it out. I stamped the "celebrate life" stamp in the center of a PL card by Studio Calico. I created the take note card using a blank grid card. I'll add my journaling here. I cut my Be-YOU-tiful stamp into three pieces so I can use them seperately if I want to . I used just the word YOU on the yellow card and colored it in with markers. I also cut the "recording memories" stamp apart and used the recording part by itself on the top right photo. By cutting your stamps apart, you can get even more use out of them and combine words and phrases the way you want them.
I stamped the "let your smile change the world" stamp on a white 4x6 card and colored it in with Copics. That stamp just makes me happy! I love it with bright colors on it! Here is the spread - this is only side two as I am still working on side one (I'll show you that one tomorrow).
I think the "celebrate life" stamps really bring LIFE to this spread - they make it happy and that is always my goal. I hope you enjoy using the set on your PL spreads as well.
