October Studio AE Blog Hop from Technique Tuesday


Welcome to the October 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: Hello December


DIGITAL MEMORY KEEPER? This set is based on a combination of my December Daily™ Favorites 4×6 Overlays and other Christmas-themed word art.


This month I created an 8.5×11 layout using the long rectangle pieces with stars on the end from the stamp set to create a frame around my photo. I used the “Christmas wish” stamp inside the boxes using grey and red ink. Around the frame I paired pattern paper from Heidi Swapp‘s Believe 12×12 Paper pad and Teresa Collins Santa’s List Collection 12 x 12 Double Sided Paper with Glitter Accents Snowflakes. On top of my photo I used Teresa Collins photo corners and added a couple of chipboard words from that same collection. I also added a couple of hand-drawn lines and words that bump into the chipboard words.

This stamp set would also make really great December Project Life 4×6 cards or cards that can be used for journaling in December Daily™.

I can’t wait to see how other people use them!

    Love this! That photo is awesome :) I kind of want to get the stamp set, but I know I have all the digital elements already, and I already have so many Christmas stamps, so I’m a little undecided. I am very much looking forward to December Daily though!

    I am trying to resist getting caught up in Christmas thinking so early, but you are making it hard with this great layout. (Makes me think I might like a white Christmas one day!)
