Scrapbook Process Video – This is My Summer Body!

PV Summer Body Title Card

Hello friends! I am back with another layout and process video. In honor of my upcoming class, Stamping Like a Boss – A Mini Course Bundle, I wanted to create a layout that featured a stamped title. Creating stamped titles is one of many techniques that I cover in my new course and can be an easy point of entry for those who are hesitant about stamping on a scrapbook page.

This layout features a simple stamped title using the Stanley Alphabet Set by Elle’s Studio and Distress Oxide Ink by Tim Holtz (Ranger).

To begin, I used a piece of textured black card stock for my background. Using the Stanley Alpha Set and the Distress Oxide inks, I stamped the title This is My Summer Body on the left side of the background. Next, I colored each of the letters with the oxide ink – activating the ink with a little bit of water. Once the water hits the oxide ink, it will oxidize, creating a chalky finish. Distress Oxide inks are perfect to use with dark card stock!

Next, I layered two 3×4 photos to the right of the title and created embellishments clusters using elements from the June and July Hip Kit Club kits. Also, I created a third cluster at the bottom of the layout using a die cut frame, flower cluster, and a butterfly from the July Hip Kit Club kit, and a chip board bathing suit from the Pick-Me-Up collection by Thickers (from my stash).

Journaling strips were added to the bottom of the layout.

To balance out the overall design of the layout, I added a strip of pattern paper, black and white stripe washi tape, and a tab to the left side of the page.
