31 Days #23: A Special Tutorial Sponsored by Faber-Castell

by Lain Ehmann on July 23, 2012

I’ve got a special treat for you today — I combined several different questions into a “Scrap along with me” video!

I cover using stamps on scrapbook pages, my design process, mixing old and new products, and more.

Watch the video, then check out the resources below!

Here’s an annotated layout, with approximate ages of some of the OLD product I used, as well as red arrows indicating where I used stamping:

    Very cool. Love the stamping! And the coloring of the chevron paper was gorgeous. I would have found it very hard to punch out little pieces of it.

    OMG!  I love this page!  That Heidi Swapp color resist paper is amazing and never would have thought to use the Big Brush pens on it they way you did!  What a great idea!  Looking forward to your tags!

    Love this layout! It struck me, and I don’t know if you realized it, but your title is very reminiscent of what I remember to be the start of Heidi’s fame: the SHE items.

    Way cool!

    love the layout Lain, I must get my wee mits on some of that yummy Heidi Swapp resist paper, it looks so good. Thanks for the videos, there fantastic and so up beat they make me want to run to my scrap space and go crazy :)

  • LauraZM

    Isn’t it great when you can combine old stash with new and make a fabulous page. Love it! In particular, the use of brush markers for stamping is a great idea and probably easier to have a larger variety than stamp pads. Just a thought for those with limited scrap space.
