So I have some suuuuuuuuuuper exciting news to share!
But before I do - the amazing Kellie made an announcement this week that she was switching from physical stamps to digital. Now for those of you that actually stamp, you might be a little sad about the news but I am like, YAYAYAYAYAY! *happy dance* They are FINALLY in a way I can use them ha! It's no secret that stamping and I don't really go well together, but digital files I can use! So to cut a long story short; I was lucky enough to see a few of them early and got to play around by creating cut files, etc. And let me just say, it is SO MUCH FUN people! It's got me using my Cameo that is neglected more than its used ;)
And then (this is the exciting news part and the point of this post) - Kellie asked me join her Creative Team! AHHHHHH! Me?! HELLS YES! Feeling so lucky to be asked and I can not wait to show you more of Kellie's amazing work! I will preface by saying I'll probably end up using the stamps to create cut files most of the time - for one, they look awesome that way and two, it's fun!
So rather than just share the existing news and leave it at that, I thought I'd share just a couple of the layouts I've managed to make this week using some of the new digital stamps :)
The first layout I created was actually part of a blog post for Citrus Twist (click link to see!) but my next layout I created is this one, using the "You Little Cutie" stamp from the Kiddo set to create a cut file for my background. I just tiled the stamp over the full page height, easy one. The bonus to this layout was using up some of those scrap pieces of paper I have so much of - little hard to see, but behind each line of wording is a slightly different pattern paper - all pink of course :)
Plus I just had to use that flamingo on a page. It's been sitting in a bowl on my desk begging to be used. I had it on the page, took it off, had it on, took it off then finally I just had to stick it down! I'm not sure how the flamingo fits the layout but it's there and I love it :)
Next up I used the HELLO stamp from the WHAT? set. Soon as I saw this set I knew I had to create another cut file (I warned you! me + cameo gonna be like best buds!). So I cranked up the Cameo again, created a cut file from the stamp - sent it through and voila! Helllllllooooo!
Originally I thought I'd use the negative of the cut and layer the coloured letters on top but the negative got a little lost so I'm saving that for something later ;) I actually used something other than plain white cardstock as my base (SHOCK!) for a change, added foam dots behind each letter to give them some dimension and ended up with this.
I have to admit, I really love the title on this one - that stamp is a awesome cut file and I'm really happy with the colours I went with :)
And that's it. For now! I have another one up my sleeve (think Christmas layout....in September, what the?!) but I'll share that one a little later ;)
Thanks so much for stopping by! Take care :)
