This stamp features different kind of camera’s and phrases. I was inspired for this page layout by the phrase life in pictures.

I thought as there are progression of camera’s I would style a layout that can be used for a birthday showcasing different stages in a life.

 

The basic design for this layout came from Reflections scrapbooking program book, Bottom Border 2a design.

I didn’t want to use any papers with this project so I used second generation stamping with the images to create my own background. I stamped with slate ink hoping to create a softer image.

I cut the film strip from the artiste cartridge at 3″. I used the inner pieces to stamp a camera image on. I then sanded all the card stock to create an antique/aged feel to the page. I also used the edge deserter to roughen up the large photo mat.distressed edge.jpg
The one thing I love about our stamps is the ability to manipulate them. You can see I have used the words both straight and curved. Curving the words allows them to follow the edge of the circle to create a different element to you designs.

Here is a picture of how they can be manipulated and placed on your block.

I embellished the page using silver foil tape, sequins and Twine to create this final look.
