Scrapbooking with Stamps

_C286400 Ribbons and curls sweetheart paper (Medium)

I am not a big fan of placing a lot of photos on a layout. I pick out 2 or three of the best photos and use them. Too many photos in my opinion clutter the layout and the photos will get lost amongst them. Instead I use stamps to “fill” up some space. Strategically placed, they bring the layout together.

One of the best stamps to do this is the Love Life stamp set. It has one of the most awesome curly flourish. You can place just about anything alongside to enhance it. I used ribbon, flowers with brads and buttons, but you can also use sparkles or pearls too.

The stamp set also has a smaller flourish, some flowers, stars and hearts in different sizes that can be placed along the flourish as well. The triple dot rainbow is great for placing on a layout as well. It would be great to top a tag with. The stamp set also has some saying too. You can view the stamp set on my website here.

  1. Beautiful layout! I have a lot of this paper left over...I may need to use it to recreate this layout for myself. And I've left you an award on my blog - check out my post on 1-27-12!

  2. This layout is tastefully done. I especially like the way you carefully placed all the different elements. When pictures are added, the eye will be drawn to the photos. Great job! :-)
