Bible Journaling Stamps on a Layout

Today I'm challenging myself to try something new and I'm using Bible Journaling Stamps on a layout.

You can find all the details on this layout on the SRM Blog.

11 Years Layout

My kiddos just keep getting older. I'm so thankful for this hobby every time I do a layout like this 11 years layout. It helps me freeze a little spot in time to remember who they are at right this exact moment in time.

I'm just about done using up my stash of American Crafts True Stories. There are a lot of great stickers and embellishments in this collection, so I had a lot to chose from for embellishments.

I love the little naked wood embellishments that are in a lot of American Crafts collections. You can paint, stain, or ink them as well, but I usually love the look of them just plain.

I love this snapshot of this kid! It's so him, right now at this moment.

Brothers Layout

I'm still working on getting through my paper stash. Today I'm stash busting with this Brothers Layout.

I've found that, when I'm using up my stash, I often don't have the alphabet stickers I need for creating titles (I always seem to be missing the vowels and the letters s and t). When that happens, I just pop open my computer and create a title with my Silhouette Cameo. From creation to cutting, it's often just as fast as trying to get individual alpha stickers placed in the right spot.

The paper from my stash that I'm busy using up is American Crafts True Stories. I grabbed some of the cork stickers for embellishments. With the wood background in the photo, I thought the natural look of the cork went well. I was even able to use one as part of the title.

More of the stash is used up, and I love seeing these two together on this Brothers Layout.
