Be a stamper...

Sometimes, I get so caught up in the pretty paper, hordes of stickers, embellishments, and assortment of punches and dies that I forget to stamp on my scrapbook pages.  I've just always found it easier to use my stamps on cards than on pages.  I think I get distracted and overwhelmed easily.  I think it comes with being left-handed.

For the page above (which was a Liftateer project over at Fiskateers), this fabulous patterned stamp (from Stampin' Up) makes a vivid background anchor for the photo and glitter star/flowers.  I went back and forth for a long time trying to decide if this page needed "something else", but I couldn't decide what,  so I left it simple.  I like that too.

I used that same background stamp for this companion page, but stamped off some of the ink first to give a lighter impression.  This page, is for inspiration for the 1-2-3 Recipe Challenge going on at Scrap It Girl this month.  Use 1 stamped image, 2 punches, and 3 patterned papers to creat your project and then link it on the Scrap It Girl site for a chance to win a prize (see it here).  For these pages, I think simple is better so as to not compete with the bright, colorful photos from Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

So what are you waiting for?  Go!  Go!  Go!
