Today I'm super excited to share not one, but TWO layouts that showcase Stampin' Up stampin' around roller stamps. And I'm even more excited that one of those layouts is by none other than the fabulous, Laura Vegas!
We thought it would be fun to challenge one another to use the Stampin' Around stamps we purchased from Robyn. :)
For the challenge we followed these guidelines:
1. Use the colors: turquoise, red & green.
2. Use buttons.
3. Use a photo strip.
4. Implement the Stampin' Around stamps in our layouts.
Here is Laura's gorgeous layout:
I love how she used the Dotted Lines Jumbo Roller Stamp behind her title. It adds just the right touch and interest to her page. Love it!
Check out Laura's Blog for more information on her layout (and loads of inspiration!).
Here is my layout:
Notice how both Laura and I used cardstock and lots of "white space" on our layouts with just a smattering of embellishments. Neither of us saw the other's layout until after we were both finished creating it and we both thought it was funny that two primarily patterned paper girls used only cardstock!
The circles were completely inspired by the talented Keisha Campbell. :)
I incorporated lots of stamping on this layout. Felt so good to just play with stamps and embossing powder. :)

And finally, I created a video showing how to get straight lines when stamping with these rolling stamps. I am sorry that the video is upside down. I didn't realize that I had done that until I uploaded it to my computer. I tried rotating it but it looked funny. I think that you're still able to see the stamp technique this way so I left it as is.
