Stampbook Saturday with Tobi

Hi readers! Well this concludes my Trendsetter week and I know from talking to the other girls that our Saturday post is the most challenging - it's a layout!! ACK! I started out scrapbooking about 11 years ago but it was that really basic way of doing things, you know: die cuts, decorative scissors, stickers!! I wasn't serious about papercrafts until I got introduced to cardmaking and then I kind of left scrapbooking in the dust. I still do it occasionally, but it's not my forte that's for sure! I like to scrapbook important events (STILL working on my wedding - 3 years later) and the topic of today's layout is certainly deserving of a layout: our newest member of the family, Fiona:

This is a 12x12 layout and I used a bunch of Cosmo Cricket papers that I've been hoarding for a couple of years - literally... The colours matched Fiona's little sweatshirt perfectly so I had to use them!!

I cut out the scalloped shape with my Silhouette and added some doodling with a white gel pen. (Look at her sweet face.. LOVE)

And where's my stamping component??? Well, I knew I would use the "Puppy Love" stamp set on this layout but I didn't know how it would play into the design, but it turns out I just needed the perfect little touch. It's nice to have a collection of stamps on hand when you need that little something to make an element complete!

Thanks for joining me this week, I've had a blast!

  1. Adorable layout, Tobi! I like the bright colors and stitched banner. I have been very negligent of my scrapbooking as well.


Thank you for visiting the TSG Blog, happy stamping!
