April stamp release | Kerri Bradford

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

I know this is coming in a bit late...but I'm still trying to catch up after taking my little getting-used-to-this-whole-stay-at-home-order break...

Today I'm sharing a little TN spread I created using the new April stamps from Kerri Bradford...

I was cleaning out part of my craft room and came across this photo of my daughter from 2004.

I knew right away it would be perfect to use with these new stamps...and I love the way this spread turned out!

To start this project, I cut out two pieces of patterned paper to fit inside my notebook. I do this when I don't want to work on the plain white pages that are standard in the books or when the patterned paper the book is created with isn't my favorite...😏.

I adhered my photo to my left-hand page, and then I ran it through my typewriter to add my journaling.

Then I adhered the entire page to the paper in my notebook.

I grabbed some inks that complemented the colors in my photos and then I got to work on the right-hand side of my spread.

I started by stamping the little bunny bum, and then I just worked up & down the page using stamp designs that fit with my spread.

Finally, I adhered the right-hand page to the page in my notebook.

The design for this page is really simple...but it's one that I use over and over, because it can be changed up with different colors and stamps.

Thank you so much for stopping by...😘

I hope I've inspired you to maybe grab an old photo and document it!
