It's Tina here! I hope you're enjoying playing with the Bailey kit as much as I do! Today I want to share with you a new traveler's notebook spread I created mostly using the Bailey stamp set. The two "Love" stamps from the set were calling my name and of course I couldn't resist it.
So I started by stamping samples using different ink pads, chose those that match the color scheme of the kit and decided in which order to use these colors. After that I stamped seven solid and outlined words "Love" on the left-hand side of the spread and added the "This Life With You" sentiment in the bottom.
Then I trimmed two strips of pattern paper from the kit and adhered them on the other side of the spread. I wanted to use two funny photos of my daughter so I made a flip-up card with them and decided to add some journaling inside the card. At first I printed my journaling and trimmed it to be a little bit smaller than the photo. And after that I matted the journaling with a piece of yellow striped pattern paper and adhered it to the back of the upper photo.
Also I should say that usually I am pretty scared to use stamps. Most of the time I just adore them and never make myself add some to a project. That is why I set myself a goal to use as many stamps in this project as possible to try to overcome my fear because the Felicity Jane stamps are totally worth it and are too beautiful not to be used. So I decided to add a small title above my journaling and used the "Good Day" and "Memories" stamps from the Madison and Noel kits.
Next I stamped the "Love This So Much" sentiment from the Bailey stamp set on white cardstock, cut it out and adhered onto the blue die cut label. Then it was added to the second photo in such a way that the sentiment would be visible even when the flip-up card was closed.
In the end I simply added a few die cut shapes from the Bailey kit here and there, and my spread was finished. It was really fun to work a little bit out of my comfort zone and play with stamps and inks!
Thank you so much for joining me on the blog today! I hope I gave you a few ideas how to use the wonderful Bailey stamp set and will look forward to see your creations!
