Let’s Explore by May

Today we have a super fun treat! Our friend, May, is sharing an awesome layout with us!
Hello! May Flaum here – and I’m excited to be sharing some ideas for using those stamps onto your next scrapbook layout. I’m teaching a class on this right now and since some of my favorite stamps to use are Lawn Fawn this seems like a great place to share those ideas too! Now cute images and little shapes can be a challenge – the real key is to tie them in with another page component such as the edge of a piece of paper or photo.
Another great way to use them? Use them like stickers! I love that Lawn Fawn has dies to coordinate with the stamps making my work so much easier – and saving loads of cutting time!
This makes me super happy because I get to color and play – with no risk of messing up my layout. Then when I’m done I can just place my stamped paper shapes anywhere I’d like.  Speaking of anywhere I’d like – I also like to add faint stamped accents by stamping in a color very close to the cardstock I’m working on for a subtle accent.
All that stamping – and some flair and my favorite new paper (heart polka!) and I’ve got myself a new layout that I love.
Things really did come together quickly for this – such a fun way to get inky and preserve memories too. Another way that I like to use my Lawn Fawn stamps on my scrapbook pages (or pocket pages!) is to stamp, color, and cut out or die-cut pieces to create custom journaling cards! Here is one I just made for a future camping trip.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my guest post today – thanks to Lawn Fawn for having me visit!

Unicorns and Rainbows by Elena

 This card by Elena is too cute! I love how she combined Critters Ever After with the new Starry Backdrops set! This is also an awesome way to use the new Large Stitched Journaling Card. It adds so much detail and looks great over the new Let’s Polka paper!

Melissa‘s layout is so gorgeous! I love the circles and her Quinn’s Capital ABCs title! The stitching she did on the sun ray paper is so fun!

Lynnette‘s cards are adorable! I love the way she layered the papers and how she used a larger cut out from the strip paper to create a cool pattern on her card!

Melissa‘s pocket scrapbooking layout is so cool! I love how she used the journaling cards from Hello Sunshine, and the Speech Bubble Border die looks awesome over a photo!
