Food is an important part of this time of the year! We celebrate with our favorite dishes, secret family recipes and treats that remind us of our childhood. Our Let’s Eat Stamp is the perfect add-on to help you record your food loves and adventures, as design team member Tracey Fox is showing us today on a new layout! Let’s take a look!
Do you have any food stories on your “must document’ list? Well, Elle’s Studio has the stamp set for you this month! I loved using the Let’s Eat Stamp to scrapbook an epic day of food: a breakfast tour of Columbus that I took with my friend earlier this year!
The Let’s Eat Stamp is totally versatile! Its mix of large and small phrases, words, and icons perfectly allowed me to stamp a background and create lots of embellishments for my layout. I chose the “YUM” word to stamp all over white cardstock, creating a fun background in colors matching my photos and the embellishments I had chosen. I used other stamps in the set with black ink to dress up die cut labels from the November 2019 Kit and the Christmas Die Cut Labels. These labels made great embellishments to sprinkle and tuck in around my layout, and the “breakfast” stamp even became part of my page’s title once I combined it with some labels and the Red Puffy Alphabet Stickers.
Have you noticed how a majority of Elle’s Studio stamps feature 1″ circle stamps? If you have a 1″ circle punch in your crafty tool kit, these stamps allow you to make super quick embellishments! I stamped and punched out three of the fork, knife, and spoon circles from this set and placed them around the layout.
For my typed checklist-style journaling, I chose the “highlights” tag from the November Kit. It had five lines on it, which was absolutely perfect, since our breakfast tour had five stops! I balanced this journaling out with some more journaling strips in the opposite corner of the layout.
This was such a fun page to scrapbook! I was very close to laying out my 17 photos and bits of memorabilia in a linear grid like I often do, but the whimsical stamping and the layout’s theme inspired me to lay these elements out in more of a collage style, and I loved being able to tuck my stamped embellishments in and around the page. The tiny star in the stamp set made an excellent finishing touch. The final result is a page that represents the delicious jumble of culinary breakfast delights we enjoyed on our tour! I can’t wait to see what stories you will document with this stamp!
