Studio AE Blog Hop | July | Scrapbook Layout

Welcome to the July 2011 Studio AE Blog Hop featuring my new stamp set Get Outside from Technique Tuesday.

Here’s a look at this month’s stamp set:

Here’s my layout:

Nice and simple featuring 4×6 photos (cropped to fit across the page) with lots of letter stickers.

Here’s a few close-ups:


These small letter stickers are from Lily Bee Design and they come on a 12×12 sheet. I added a word to each photo.

The sentiment from Go Outside was stamped on white cardstock using Jenni Bowlin ink. Under the stamp I hand-wrote “summer beginnings, twenty-eleven.” The yellow edged circle sticker was cut to fit in that space.


STAMP | Go Outside by Ali Edwards for Technique Tuesday
LETTER STICKERS | Lily Bee Design, Cosmo Cricket Hello Yellow, American Crafts
CARDSTOCK | Bazzill Basics

    I always love your work anyhow but I love how your stamps are perfect for documenting the everyday ordinary. Now all I need to do is get outside. I have triplet almost 1 year olds so I am ignoring the “call of the wild.”
