Hello Evelin T Designs Friends! I am really enjoying doing Memory Planning as a way to capture the routines of our lives. I find Evelin T Designs stamps a great way to create and use my own images over and over again whether by stamping and fussy cutting or stamping directly onto my planner. Stamps were always my go-to for getting so much out them than just one use! So here is a look at how this spread came together.
Firstly, I take a look at the photos for the week and then decide which to print larger and which to print smaller. Then, I start adding the stamping, die cuts and stickers after I adhere the photos to my pages.
I always have extra stamped and colored images. All I had to do was to add the images from the Positivi-Tea, Best Friends Fur-Ever!, Life is Beautiful, Take a Leap of Faith stamp sets I used to where they would help tell the story and fill in my collage. The sentiments are perfect for adding to die cuts or directly to my planner too. The fonts and sayings go so well with the style of my planner.
I needed a few more stamped and colored images for this layout. But it was easy to do. I knew exactly which ones I needed. The coloring was quick since I already had my colored laid out. I love the details the stamps add. My favorite little cluster is the ‘Sunday Ride’ with the Alpha Blocks set, the ‘Be You’ sentiment from Life is Beautiful, and the leftover stamped and colored cloud from Take a Leap of Faith at the bottom.
Thank you so much for stopping by!! I hope this gives you inspiration to pull out your leftover stamped and colored images and use them on our next project whether memory planning or a card!
Hello Evelin T Design Friends. I truly hope everyone is well during this time. I hope creating cards, or just stamping and coloring is good therapy for you right now! This difficult time we are going through reminds me of the difficult time of going through the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. That time period pushed me into my love of being crafty where my creative journey began. So the difference from that circumstance to this one is I want to document it creatively, even though I do have to push myself to take photos 😉 This time has pushed me to go back to my Memory Planner love. I will admit I gave it up because I could not keep up, but I realize how important it is to do. Today, I’m using the Coffee Art stamp set to document the first week at home.
I first start by adding photos for each day, trimming cards and adding journaling, and then adding stamping. In this case, I wanted to emphasize the coffee cups from the stamp set. To me it really means home and even more so since coffee really helps to relax me and need it right now!
I didn’t add any coloring to the stamped images. I wanted to create a clean look to the spread and add embellishments to them. One way I used the coffee cups the most was to do a partial stamping in the rectangles for the day. Then for the sentiments from the stamp set, I added them to the rectangles and die cuts.
The ‘Hallo There!’ and ‘Smile’ are perfect for these spots above, and the leaf image from the set, frames the rectangle and the circle chipboard.
Once my days were filled in, I go back go the first page and add more journaling and stamping (kind of like my title). Along with my die cuts and stamping the month, I added another coffee cup image from the stamp set and filled it with hearts!
Thank you for stopping by and prayers for health for everyone!
