Make the most out of your stash

I love stamps! I really do! I love that I can use them again and again in so many different kind of ways. I use them a lot in cardmaking. I have used them now and again in Scrapbooking: as accents, as a background or for my journaling but until now I had never created a layout using only my stamps. I decided to take the plunge and designed this layout:


I created my own patterned paper with those Waltzing Mouse stamps. I love the result! I never thought I could pull it off! I must admit it took me over three days of stop and start but the end was worth it!


Okay I do admit I cheated slightly as I used three buttons bought on ebay, some American Crafts Thickers and some mini alphas, but I promise that my next "Stamps only" layout will be designed using... stamps only!
I hope this inspired you!

Fantastic page - really clever use of stamps. You have inspired me to have a go at a "stamps only" page. Can't imagine it will look this good though!
