New Year – New Digi Stamp Designs

You all must know by now I love flowers – so I’m starting the new year off with early blooming flowers.
Snowdrops and Crocuses are for me that first sign spring is on it way & I’ve created a beautiful new digi stamp with a mix of them both.

Crocus & Snowdrop Digi Stamp Now Available To Purchase HERE

On the A5 sheet you will receive the main crocus and snowdrop digi stamp, a small crocus stamp and one sentiment. All new digi stamp now come in SVG format too!

I’ve used this design on the first page of my 2021 journal

Isn’t it pretty – to finish off the page I’ve stamped little circles in Gold Wow Embossing powders. Created a ombre January with promarkers & placed decorative washi tape over the punched holes – which match the shades of the crocuses.

Second New Release of 2021

The digi stamp isn’t our only new release for the new year – I’ve also designed some decorative frames used the crocuses and snowdrops. These are great for scrapbooking, journalling & cardmaking.
Aren’t they so pretty?

Creating A Journal; Stamping Monthly Pages

Hi Everyone
I’m back with another idea with how to use our range of clear stamps – normally we would focus on cardmaking but we’ve been trying something a little different. I just to keep a dairy as a young girl & then as a teen had a small filofax & a few years ago tried to set up a bullet journal (only I didn’t get very far). I don’t know about you but even thought it’s not something you share with anyone – I always get stuck what to write or do in it, so I overthink it & end up not doing anything at all. So after a little research into bullet journals – you can do whatever you like – make it creative & fun.

I’ve decided 2021 is going to be the year I’ll create a fab journal/bullet journal.
My dad bought me this lovely journal for Christmas last year & I’ve wrote in it once – so by creating beautiful pages I’m hoping this will motivate me to journal!

Getting Started; Monthly front pages

I’ve decided to pick a month which will co-ordinate well with my sunflowers

Step 1: I’m not great with calligraphy style writing – I chose a nice font & printed a sheet off so I could trace the wording. Deciding on how I wanted to use the Sunflower stamp – I penciled in guide lines – inked up the stamp & masked off the section I didn’t want stamped.

Step 2: Using promakers I’ve shaded in the Sunflowers

Step 3: To make the colours pop I’ve gone back in with coloured pencils to add shading. Once I was happy with the flowers – I inked in the lines under the stamped sunflowers. Then moved onto the wording ‘September’ I was going to heat emboss the wording but then decided on doing the wording in ombre style – choose three tones of the same colour & colour the wording from dark to light. Finishing the wording off by going round each letter with a fine liner.

Finished page

I’ve finished off the page by heat embossing dots around the page to fill in some of the white space – with a gold metallic embossing powder. I think it gives it move a luxe look.

I like things to co-ordinate – to finish off the back of the monthly page, I’ve backed it with papers from our Sunny Sunflower Digital Paper Pack. Making a little pocket to store items I may need for that month – I’ve even stamped some tags which I could use to place on Birthday gifts or use to write on & stick in the journal. To liven up the writing paper with came in the journal I’ve stamped the sunflowers into the corners of the pages for that month.
