10 (!) Fabulous January Stamping Projects and Inspiration


Hello!  This is Niru, bringing you a variety of stamped projects that really show the awesome versatility of the Notebook Kit’s stamp sets.  Arleigh has knocked the design out of the park yet again.  Her flourishes and garlands are classy and timeless.


First up a lovely trio of mixed media projects by Ashli, aka SoaphouseMama.  This journal cover absolutely blows me away with all it’s artistry.  She uses the wreath stamps to add accents along the sides of the page but my favorite part are the stamped leaves falling out of her hair.  A lady after my own heart to be sure.



She uses her stamps to accent her layout as well. The garlanded wreaths match the floral patterned paper so well.


And last but not least is this sweet card.  I love the repeated circle motifs here with the stitching, gesso, confetti paper and stamping.


Denise shared with us her layout using DITL cards as a wonderful base for a grid.  She uses the stamps to make embellishments and to scatter motifs across a 4×6 card to fill the white space.



These next projects are brought to us by the uber-talented Suz.  She used the stamp set to make her own patterned paper and used that as a background for her card.  That sweet little moon has the cutest face ever!


She also brings us this adorable smooshy face.  I love how the stamp set also lends itself to making a background paper for a bigger project as well.


The last layout is brought to us by the lovely Sharmaine.  I love how her embellishments really pop off the page.  She uses the stamp in a couple of different ways here.  She personalizes the tags she added and stamped a messy circle at three different points to create a visual triangle.  She also brings the eye in to her focus in another clever way with simple black hash lines.  It is subtle but makes a huge design impact. I love that!



I am totally in love with the pinks and reds and golds in the kit this month, so after I created my layouts I had to go back and make some Valentine’s Day cards with my kit!  Nothing like getting prepared early right?

I used the stamps here to add a text background to one of the DITL cards.  I shadow stamped True Love 4Ever in red.  I stitched the piece in place to add some texture to the card.  I find it interesting how important the little things are when it comes to card making.  Texture and layering are key for me.


Here I used different strips of patterned paper to make a new design.  For one layer of the design I used hexagonal stickers from the main kit.  I stamped sentiments and designs on them to personalize the embellishments.  It also helped to pick up the black and white on the script paper and butterflies paper.


My last card layered patterned paper with the vellum hearts paper and a valentines tag.  I used the stamps to create my own pattern on the bottom of the tag.  It really helps to add weight to the tag and help it stand out from the background.  The stamp set made it so easy to create my own pattern in the exact colors I wanted.

My daughter loved this card so much she quickly claimed it for her own.

Thanks for coming by to check out our latest stamped projects!  I hope you found some good inspiration whether you are crafting layouts or cards or mixed media projects!
