Hi everyone! Today, I'm thrilled to be stampeding with Mama Elephant! (As winner of their Colour Challenge 01, I also won the opportunity to be their guest designer this month!)
A few things you should know about the Stampede....
The January stamps that the designers are showcasing are available in the Mama Elephant store now. Mama Elephant is giving away 3 gift certificates worth $20.00 each - just leave a comment here on my blog (& on the blogs of the other designers) to win. Winners will be chosen at random from the collective blogs in the Stampede & will be announced on the Mama Elephant blog on Monday, January 21st. AND, there will be a surprise giveaway on Mama Elephant's Facebook Page, so you'll want to stop by there as well!
I decided to create a layout for the stampede using some stamps from the new Smitten stamp set. This set is well named, because I was totally smitten with it the first time I saw it, knowing it would be perfect for creating cards and layouts for/about my loved ones! The subject of today's layout is my daughter, Sage.
In addition to the Mama Elephant Smitten stamp set, I also used some My Mind's Eye patterned paper, washi tape and decorative brads. I cut my title out of white cardstock and MME patterned paper on my Silhouette Portrait. The little "I ♥ this" is a Smitten stamp-- love that one!
I used four more stamps from this set on my layout, creating a grid in which to house each stamp:
