Stampendous and PL together... NICELY done


It's blog hop day with Project Life and Stampendous Impressions!

The Design Team is putting on some flair with our Stampendous supplies and Becky Higgins Project Life Page Protectors.
But before we get to my project there is the important matter of PRIZES! Oh yeah, if you have been with us all this week you know that Laura at Stampendous has oodles of prizes in store. It's easy to have a chance to win, just comment away! Details are all on the Stampendous Blog

Back to my project. Oh my pages came together like a storybook! I know that's how they are suppose to be with divided page protectors, but I started with a picture of my son maneuvering around with a clunky toy. 

On the first half of my two-page Project Life spread I captured my son. He's got an elephant rocker my dad made for me when I was his age. My dad was crafty with wood and so was his dad. They had lots of tools to get the job done and I suppose as I thought through this layout I realized all the tools I have to get my crafty jobs done.


Stampendous products used for the first page:
ARTIST ELEMENTS (sneak peek alert! You can find this at most retailers soon! REAL SOON!)

For the second half of my layout is a sequel of sorts to the first page. My train of thought went from something my dad made me to how I make things, we both have a lot of supplies to do what we do and then among some of the precious to me items I found were sets of rubber stamps. Stamps that I believe my grandpa used to mark the grandfather clocks he made. It's something I wanted to document.


Stampendous products used for the second page:
CLING TYPING ELEMENTS (another sneak peek alert!!!!! Yep, it's a new April stamp coming soon!
CLING TIN PANEL

  14. Wonderful bold colors! I really like the clean black stamping too- great accents but doesn't take away from the photos at all.
