My Sister

Hey everyone! Sorry for the radio silence lately- there's been a lot going on in the Stephens household- potty training, school, and an upcoming move so I haven't been scrapbooking as much as I'd like! I did find some time last week to squeeze in a page though and I'm very happy with how it came out.


I used my Studio Calico kit, 35mm, and the stamp set from Summer Stamp School. I don't usually even think to use stamps on my page (I usually remember once the page is done!) but I started this one with the stamps in mind.


I mainly just filled in space with some of my favorite bits of the set- the chevrons and arrows and stamped them in a light gray ink so they blended into the background a bit. I also added in some hand-stitching once my title was laid down.


I also used the Heidi Swapp color magic letters here but opted not to color them- I really like the subtle gloss effect on them.
I also have a summer-themed page up at Simple Stories today- here's a little peek:


I'll be back later in the week to share the full page, plus a little glimpse into my Instagram mini! See you then!
