Scrapbook Simplicity - Frame it up!!

One last post for the month concerning frames !!  This is a super simple way to use stamps that have a border that allows for the center to be cut out or covered
with an image, journaling, poetry, etc.

The stamps are all retired Stampin' Up!  An oblong stamp was used to edge the page with white embossing.  Subtle, I really wanted the page to stay soft and sweet and leave enough room that the recipient (or in this case my students) could add embellishments, ribbon or color without problem.
I left an extra inch on the binding side of the page so that it can be easily inserted into our homemade scrapbook covers.  All of the images were stamped with pigment ink so that a thick coating of clear heat embossing powder could be added.  Dimensional tape is used on the sides and bottom of the fussy cuts so that a photo, etc can be dropped into place behind them!  The flower is simply the result of 3 flower punches, layered and curled up, a dot of glue in the center only of each one :)

WARNING!  It is very possible you could get hooked on their amazingly beautiful stamps!
