Technique Tuesday June Release Blog Hop

Hi friends and welcome to the Technique Tuesday June Release Blog Hop! Hopefully you have arrived here from Allison Arbour's blog but if you haven't, I'll be sharing the full list at the end of this post so you can catch up.

I'm so happy to be a guest designer again this month and I have a layout to share with you featuring the new Laugh and Smile Stamp Set and Layered Laugh Crafting Dies.

I began by stamping a selection of the words and phrases from the Laugh and Smile Stamp Set onto some plain white cardstock then cut them out using my scissors...all except the scripty "laugh' word.  For this one I adhered the matching die from the Layered Laugh Crafting Dies over the top of the stamped image using some washi tape then ran it through my die cutting machine for a perfectly cut border.  I also stamped the smiley face image onto a small white tag.

Next it was time to put the layout together.  I added two patterned paper pieces at the bottom of the 8.5" x 11" white cardstock background, then added some machine stitching.  At the top of the page I added a sticker and a cardstock bow then started arranging the stamped words down the centre of the page.

The photo and some embellishments were layered together into position, then I added the stamped smiley face tag to the left of the photo with a paper clip.

The final stamped pieces were adhered below the photo, then I used my sewing machine to add stitching to each stamped piece for some lovely texture.

This page was so fun to put together and I love the way it turned out!

If you'd like to watch out I put it all together you can see it in my process video.  (Open it up to full screen for best viewing.)
