Kellie Stamps | November

I'm a little (okay a lot) late to share these projects here. Some have been shared on Instagram, some have only been shared on Instagram as sneaks. I've been struggling to get over this cold, and haven't had time to get this post ready, so I had rearranged some things and shared other projects before this. Still sick, but given that I should be getting the December release soon, I needed to get this post done. I have a couple of other projects floating in my head, and I haven't done much with the summer stamps, so I'll probably share more projects in the future. You can buy the BOOKNERD and SUMMER 2016 sets that I used in these projects (here).

Here I used the "Hello Sunshine" set to add an overlay to a couple of photos. They were snapped on the same day, one of the sunrise, and the other of the sunset. I love this stamp. I say hello sunshine ALL THE TIME. This stamp will definitely be used more in the future.

Here I used the "Fun in the sun" stamp from the Summer 2016 set to add an overlay to this photo of my niece swimming at the lake. She was having so much fun trying to push her dad's head under the water, and we had so much fun watching her swim.

I didn't get a chance to print this photo out, but I took the dashed line off the bottom of the "summer reading" stamp from the Summer 2016 set and put it straight onto this photo of of the first book I read in the summer. My plan is to add this to my "reading" mini album as a divider between the start of the year, and the books I read in the summer.

Here I used the Booknerd set to create a couple of 4x4 pages for my reading mini album. On the left, I used the silhouette to cut out the books (similar to how I cut the doodles from the October release (here)). On the right I made a 4x5 card in photoshop and painted the spines of the books different colours.

Here I added some of the smaller sentiments from the Booknerd set to the spines of the books, then painted them in photoshop. I printed and cut them with the silhouette and added them to a layout.

 I used the silhouette to diecut the books. I had to adjust them so the books were all connected, and I lost a few of the inside pieces of the books, but I love how it turned out. I'm going to add it to my book mini album as a see-through page.

This layout is my favourite project from this release. I cut a TON of the "reading list" and used them to create a background. I debated printing them out directly onto a smaller sheet, but I loved the process of gluing them down, I love the imperfection of the bottom right side being more crooked than the top left side. I love the texture it adds to the page, and the whole reason I scrapbook is the cutting and gluing. I love it. I added the "book shelf" stamp as an overlay on my photo, and printed out the "book nerd" strip and cut it out to use as an embellishment. I added a bit of pattern paper so the photo stood out a bit more. I'm going back to add some journaling and the date, but otherwise I think this simple layout is finished.

Thank you for coming by to see these projects. The BOOKNERD set is definitely one of my favourites. I love to read, and this set is perfect for documenting what I read.

Have a great day!
