Happy Friday, everyone!
Who’s ready for the weekend?!
Me, too! Me, too!
How about spring? Who’s ready for spring?
I can’t even tell you how ready I am for spring.
And working with the brand new Pineapple Crush Collection has me longing for those warm, everlasting days of summer, too!
Heidi’s latest collection, which is shipping to online & independent retailers early next week, is packed with bright, bold color & beautiful, tropical designs (see more of the collection HERE & HERE ). It’s just perfect for documenting vacations, days at the beach, parties, or just your everyday average dip in the pool!
Today I’m sharing a layout I’ve created using the collection, using the new Clear Stamp set as my focus…take a look!
I love the mix of florals & phrase stamps in this set…they are so easy to layer, and they look fantastic when grouped together!
I created my layout by first figuring out where I wanted my photo to go. I drew a faint pencil line around its edges and then got to work stamping.
I began by just randomly stamping a few of the larger leaves outside of the sketched-in photo corners. I added a little depth to the leaves by first stamping in a light green color, and then inking just the edges of the same stamp in a darker green and stamping again over the same image.
I added a few of the phrase stamps in black ink because I really wanted them to stand out against the white of the page, and they really make the polka dots in the background pop.
The addition of a few puffy stickers from the collection add some extra color & texture to the page…plus I just LOVE them!
I cut a few strips of patterned paper to adhere to the bottom of my page, added some journaling strips & finished off my layout with a small strip of washi tape that reminds me of pool tiles.
I love the result…so fun & summery…
The new Pineapple Crush Clear Stamps will be the perfect addition to all of your projects this spring/summer. They’re small enough to use in your planners & notebook spreads, but layer up perfectly for use on scrapbook pages!
