Scrapstampin continued

Hope you have taken the plunge and worked on scrapstampin, it is so fast and easy. Don't be afraid to stamp on your layouts, this is paper ladies not $100.00 bills, really it's OK if you mess up, you will get the hang of it.

This layout is from the "Grace" WOTG, just changed to girlie paper, came together in less than an hour, gotta love that. I keep all of my old WOTG patterns and use them over and over, I do have all of the how to books but the WOTG are all new designs so I like to use both.

Here are a few tips for scarpstampin:
1.) use acrylic stamps, so you can see what you are doing!!
2.) use the correct size block for the stamp, to big a block will leave ink where you don't want it
3.) always use a mat that has some give to it under the stamp surface, CTMH has one in each stamp set, you can also use the backside of your PC mouse
4.) have lots of different ink pads so you are sure to have a perfect match on your layout, CTMH has 60 colors to coordinate with all the card stock, takes the guess work out of matching colors.
5.) if you are just starting out scrapstampin, purchase a WOTG, it will give you step by step directions
I used the following stamps on this layout;
Grace WOTG stamp set
Frame of Mind stamp set
