Getting the Most Out of Your Stamps

I love creating scrapbook layouts that include family photos that have been packed away. It is like rediscovering a hug tucked into the deepest parts of my memory. Simple, masculine, and it gets the point across! I hope this video and blog help you to start thinking beyond the standard perspective when looking at your stamp sets. You can create anything you want to! Happy Paper Crafting, Rebecca Disclosure Page
