Stampbook Saturday with Candace

Hi there! It's Candace! I'm here with today's Stampbook Saturday. I will admit that I was a little afraid of this because I haven't made a scrapbook page in a very long time, but I actually had a lot of fun! Maybe I'll do more pages like this in the future because I really loved incorporating my stamps! 

First I chose my photo - one of my wedding photos. My photo is my husband and I with my grandmother. Next, I decided to use the Bloom stamp set. I went to the Bloom gallery on the TSG website to browse for inspiration, and when I saw this card of Jessie's, I knew I HAD to use it as my inspiration piece because my wedding colors were pink and green!

Here's what I came up with. Jessie is known for using lots of layers on her card, so I tried to mimick that in my layout. I *attempted* to paper-pierce like she did, but I quickly gave that gave my hand a workout! Jessie, you are Super Woman! I did something that is one of my signature embellishments instead...stitching! I didn't like all of that negative white space, so I added a big, blingy flourish.I really love how this turned out!

That's it for me! It's been fun sharing my projects with you this week! Have a great weekend!!



  1. Woweee! Your page came out drop-dead gorgeous, gf! {I know what you mean with all the paper-piecing Jessie did - nope for me, too - arthritis!} I really love your creation! ;D

  2. The pinks and greens are gorgeous together!
    Happy Birthday, young lady!

  3. Love this Candace- the papers you chose mesh so perfectly with your photo- nice wedding colours btw:) You did a great CASE of meatballs card;)


Thank you for visiting the TSG Blog, happy stamping!
