September Studio AE from Technique Tuesday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Studio AE/Technique Tuesday September blog hop.

In addition to the blog hop today this week we are celebrating the 2-year anniversary of Studio AE. Lots of cool stuff happening over on the Technique Tuesday blog this week.

This month's Studio AE stamp set is Celebrate Fall:

DIGITAL SCRAPBOOKER? This stamp set is also available as a digital package through Designer Digitals.

Here's a look at my 12x12 layout:

For those of you that have been around a long time you might be shocked that I've used a different color other than white for my base cardstock.

And I'm loving working on the diagonal.

I started off printing five photos here at home using the Epson PictureMate Show printer - love it for all my 4x6 prints (and it prints the border with the click of a button).

After that I trimmed off the edges of the photos and ended up adding pattern paper and an overlay to the edges, filling in the space on the cardstock background.

Stamping ink on my photos this month is StazOn Pumpkin.

Alongside the stamping on the photo above I did a stitched line with my sewing machine and then wrote  just a bit of journaling on the photo using a Precision Pen.

The little tabs above the photos are a combination of tabs from Jenni Bowlin and word stickers from October Afternoon (thrift shop).

Yellow pattern paper is from Amy Tangerine/American Crafts.

I added a little office supply store date stamp below the sentiment stamp and drew a few lines between the words.

I like stamping & writing on my photos.

These letter stickers are some older ones (I think since I couldn't find them online) from American Crafts/Studio Calico.

This yellow diagonal overlay is from my stash of Hambly (miss you).

    Love the diagonal idea- I can always count on you to push me outside of my comfort zone and try something new. You make it look doable.

    Loving the diagonal layout and the brown background (Go you!) I was just saying yesterday how much I'm missing home (Boston) since Fall is literally right around the corner. I love waking up to those crisp mornings and watching the foliage turn. Here in Tennessee, you just don't experience it like you would up North. Plus, it's kinda hard to thoroughly enjoy a Pumpkin Spice Latte when it's still 80 degrees out :)

    Love how daring you were pushing the pictures off the page at a diagonal! I have found a new layout for myself! Thanks for sharing and I just love your stamps! Hope to win!

    I really like your layout. I'm always a little shy at the bright colors, but I loved how you used the yellow from the Amy Tangerine papers.

    P.S. I'm glad the Wisconsin Badgers could give your Oregon team a fun game on Saturday. It was a bummer for us to watch. :)

    Where I live, we only have 2 real seasons, although some would say we don't get winter either (not me!). One day I would like to experience the colours of Autumn. I miss Hambly, too.

    Love how the blue in the pictures pops against your fall colors of the layout. I've always liked your technique of writing/stamping on your pics, but have been too chicke to try it myself...I really need to push myself out of my box and do that. Thank you for all your inspiration.

    You're pages never cease to amaze me. I'm in love with your diagonal layout and the little bits of stitching totally make it. Stamping on the pictures is so fun.

    Absolutely inspired from this layout! I haven't created a layout in a while (mainly been focusing on project life lately), and this just motivated me to do it. :)
