Scrapbooking With Stamping...

Hi! I am here today with something new. I tried my hand at scrapbooking and I really enjoyed the process! I used to do lots of digital scrapbooking but hardly did any physical layouts. I was inspired by the A Year In Review Sketch Challenge 2019 on the Altenew Scrapbook Blog.

I selected the Sketch Challenge #17 for my first layout.

I used only the sketch as inspiration and went for a more monochromatic look, with shades of pink and red. Here is my layout.

I used the outline images from the Beautiful Day stamp set by Altenew for the stamping. Here is a closer look at the stamping.

The top left corner of the layout is above and below is the top right corner.

The sentiment was made by combining the Big World stamp set by Altenew for the stamping and the Inline Alpha die set for the die-cutting. To add more interest, I stamped the leaf from the Beautiful Day stamp set on the paper before die-cutting the alphabets. Here is a closer look.

I layered the alpha die-cuts to add more dimension. The location and year were handwritten. Here is another look at the layout.

I really enjoyed the process and the whole layout turned out exactly as I had envisioned. I would love to know what you think of my first attempt.

Entering this in the following challenges, along with the A Year In Review Sketch Challenge 2019.
