Behind the Page: Stamping

I am not normally a user of stamps...I always get nervous about it.

If you stamp right on a page, you can't take it back.

What if the stamp is slightly crooked?

What if it doesn't show up enough or shows up too much?

And the brain replays and goes crazy.

But....Webster's Pages and Teresa Collins offers stamps....really cute stamps.

Webster's has teamed up with Unity Stamp again to create some fabulous designs!!   I am so in love with this one:

I thought the circles could make a great accent to add some texture.  Truth be told, I stamped this on to one of the white/cream Clean and Simple papers from the Girl Land looked pretty, but it didn't pop.  So after playing and pushing and juggling for an hour to find that "Ah, now that's it" moment, I switched to white cardstock.

I wanted the stamp to be an element on my page. 

Daughters in fairy wings wearing Twinkle Toes Sketchers=great photo.  And why not pair it with the adorable new Webster's stickers with the phrase about daughters!  That sticker plus the circle stamp lead to the rest of the layout.  Repeated circles, butterflies, fairies.  To compliment the stamp, I hand cut some circles from the Bubbly paper in the collection.

I used a second stamp on this layout too...see the corner to the top right.  That was made using one of the patterned tag stamps.  I simply cut the tag into more of a square and then cut that in half to make two photo there and one under the photo.

Maybe stamping should become more of a part of my normal?


  1. I hear you, stamping scares me too! But I really love the effects of it, like yours in the background. Worked out so pretty!

  2. Wow, what a great layout! Love the colors and the setup.. Love the details, and love your style!!

  3. that is a fantastic stamp! I LOVE it and I love how you used it! :)

  4. Hi there, Stacey! You may not feel like much of a stamper, but girl, you rocked the new Webster's stamps! Love those bitty dots. Too cute. And they way you used them on your layout blending into the paper circles is genius. Really love the photo corners you created, too. And mercy, what a cute photo. Wish my daughter was little enough to still wear her fairy wings. :)

  5. I saw this the other day and it's so CUTE! you did a great job with the Unity stamps, Stacey! I took a very similar approach with my Webster's Girl land kit and the Unity Stamps...what fun!

  6. I absolutely adore what you did here. The little circles are such a perfect touch!! Great page. :)


Thank you for visiting my blog! Have a fabulous day!
