Say It with Stamps

Hey, my dear blog friends, thank you so much for joining our STAMPember blog hop last week. I had so much fun visiting your blogs and seeing all the awesome creations. This week, at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we challenge you -- "Say It with Stamps" -- from phrases to words to simple alphabets, we want to see your creations with all those letter, word, and phrase sentiment stamps this week.

I was inspired to use a stamp on the layout for my summer vacation.
Pin It
It's our first time seeing glaciers and eating reindeer sausage pizza during our family trip to Alaska this summer. These are really amazing and unforgetable memories. I decided to use this Tim Holtz stamp which has a perfect sentiment for my layout with a photo of my children that was taken in Anchorage.
On this layout, the background was sprayed with the Studio! acrylic paint and water mixture using Simon Says Stamp Blocked Circile stencil.  I layered the pieces of designer paper, jornaling cards, doily and vellum under the photo.
The background also stamped with ColorBox chalk ink and TCW numeral stencil and Prima Flower arrowhead stencil. I used machine to sew the cute letter stickers on the washi tape and added some wood veneers to add some more interest.
