Welcome to the August Studio AE Blog Hop!
Today, the Studio AE team is joining up with Ali Edwards to show some projects we made with August’s Studio AE stamp set, “This One by Ali Edwards”.
The set consists of 17 clear stamps. The set works great for scrapbook pages, cards and mini books.
The set ships to Studio AE members between the 10th and the 15th. Non-Studio AE members can also purchase the set for a limited time through the Technique Tuesday Web site. Some retailers are also now offering the Studio AE stamp sets for purchase. Check with your favorite retailer for more details about that.
Here’s my project showcasing this stamp set:
I used several of the phrase stamps included in this month's set at the top of the page as embellishments that reinforce the theme of the page. I stamped a couple of the phrases and punched them out with a heart punch and stamped 2 other stamps on a die cut banner shape.
I stamped a couple more phrases on a strip of kraft cardstock using a couple of colors of ink for interest. Then I ran the strip through my printer adding additional details about the photos. I love the contrast between Ali's handwriting on the stamps and the typewriter font of the printed text.
Several of the stamps in this month's set are perfect for "pointing you" towards a particular element on a page. In this instance, I wanted to draw attention to this photo of my daughter's feet. I stamped the phrase on an October Afternoon label sticker and adhered it to the photo. A mini clip gives the illusion of clipping the label to the photo.
Supplies used for this layout (click on photos for links):
