July Studio AE Blog Hop from Technique Tuesday

Welcome to the July Studio AE Blog Hop From Technique Tuesday.

Technique Tuesday offers a monthly stamp club that features a limited edition stamp set designed by me each month. You can check out past stamp sets (some are still available) here.

Say hello to this month’s stamp set: Label Maker

DIGITAL MEMORY KEEPER? There are similar designs are included in So Totally You Strips.

Here’s a look at the layout I put together:

Katie took this awesome photo of Anna a couple days ago and I had to use it.

I paired the full page (8.5×11) photo with journaling posted on my blog last month: 10 Things Right Now.

This is a 2-page, 8.5x 11 layout.

One of the things I love about these 4×6 stamp sets is that you can stamp them all together all at once. I just put gold ink straight onto the stamps and placed the whole sheet down onto the pattern paper.

And then I cut them out before adhering them onto my layout.

The title includes the stamped sentiment + a Heidi Swapp Sequin Heart + a Studio Calico Wood Veneer Star.

I like how this journaling ended up looking a bit like a menu.

Around the outer edge of the two pages I wrapped some washi tape from My Mind’s Eye.

The second embellishment cluster repeats the same things I used in the title.

Check out what the Studio AE team did with this month’s stamp set:

GIVEAWAY | One person will win a $25 gift certificate to someone who comments on any of the above blogs during the hop. The winner will be announced on the 15th on the Technique Tuesday blog.

    I debated with myself for months about whether or not to join Studio AE and finally decided that I deserved it. I signed up about a year ago and I love it! I look forward to the sneak peaks and begin thinking about all the ways I can use my new stamp set when it arrives–and boy, do I have plans for this set!
    I love how I pick up new techniques and tips from your posts and I enjoy the glimpses of your life that you share with us. Thank you.

    Love it! I have been addicted to gold lately (& I used to really hate it!). Also been exploring 8.5×11 more as it seems less overwhelming for single page layouts & PL inserts. Thanks for inspiration!
