I am sure that most people will recognise Corinne's style. Her layouts are colourful, striking and fun. I am definitely a big fan. Corinne has her own blog, and she is also on the design teams for Maya Road, SIStv, American Crafts and Cherry Arte. One very talented lady! So we are delighted that she is the June Guest Designer.
Now, over to you Corinne...
First of all I am not a stamper. I have stamps don't get me wrong, even more than I can count, but do I use them a lot? My answer is no. It is not that I do not like using stamps, but I think I just have to get used to them. I loved playing with the stamps from Banana Frog though, they challenged me to step out of my own comfort zone, scrapbooking wise.
Joy in Italy
For this lo I didn't wanted to use any patterned paper, alphabet stickers or embellishments. I wanted to challenge myself to work with the stamps. Instead I used the 'O' from the Budmo Jiggler as part of my background stamp.
For the title I also used the same alphabet but I used a lighter colour of ink otherwise the black would take over the whole lo and the focus wouldn’t be on the photo anymore.
One little word
Making a scrapbooking page without a photo is very hard to do for me, but I just did that in this layout and I actually like how it turned out. The cupcake(Build-a-cupcake) was perfect for this with the one candle celebrating that the challenge blog One little word was also one year old.
Happily ever after card
I used the cute hedgehog from the Greenwich Park stamps for this card. I wanted two of them to kiss but I had only one stamp. I stamped the same stamp twice on white paper, cut them out and turned one of them around. Now they were facing each other. I just had to draw black lines that were somehow similar as the original stamp. I think it turned out ok.
Happy Birthday card
I just love cupcakes and now I had the change to build my own with the Build-a-cupcake stamps. I used different kind of patterned paper to make the layers and in the last line of the cream I made a little cut with a knife so I could slide the candle in it. This way it sticks out a bit and you can even take it out.
Beverly thank you so much the stamps are awesome and I am sure I am going to use them over and over again.
Thank you Corinne!
