Simply read through this post and click on the link to the next blog at the end of it.  Keep reading and ‘hopping’ until you find yourself back where you started from. 

S2102 Doodled BordersEach blog will showcase a project featuring the Doodled Borders (S2102) stamp set which is February’s Stamp of the Month from Close To My Heart.

S2102 Layout

Dress up your die cuts and borders with doodled borders

Stamp a few different doodled borders on the baby onesies to incorporate the colours in the papers.  Be sure to mask off the bottom of each onesie when stamping the sleeve.  You will find this thin cut in the Sweet Safari cardmaking kit.

Add letters to create your title.

Don’t be afraid to stamp directly onto printed paper.  Use a colour that gives a strong contrast.  If you mess up you can always cover it with a cut piece of paper.

This stamp set includes much more than borders

The tab over the photos and the label stamps, along with the title of the 4x6 journal box are all included on the Doodled Borders stamp set.  Have a close look at each stamp and you will find loads of options for creatively enhancing elements on your scrapbook pages.

If you don’t have co-ordinating cardstock for your tabs and labels you can create some! Simply drag an inkpad directly over white cardstock and you have a textured look in the colour you desire.  Stamp and fussy cut to create elements you can layer.

Change up PML cards

The theme of this layout was Australian animals so the monkey and elephant didn’t fit but I really liked the PML card designs.  Adding some adorable koala stamps and eucalyptus leaves over the other animals did the trick.
