KI Memories - Uptown layout by designer Patty Folchert

Have you ever created your own background papers using stamps? This layout featuring the KI Memories Playlist collection and a new Vintologie Stamp and Stencil set allowed me to try that technique.

Uptown layout by Patty Folchert

Both of the black and white camera papers on the grid were created with stamps from a Vintologie Stamp and Stencil set. Using white cardstock I stamped the cameras in black ink and set aside to dry. Next I chose the Blues paper as the background and the Alternative paper as the blue base of my grid. 

Next I stamped in pink ink the chevron stamp from the same Vintologie set as a border and a 3” x 4” card onto white cardstock. I added those pieces to my grid design and then added to wallet size photos, one horizontal and one vertical.  To balance them in their space I added some more pattern paper blocks.  Then I added some stitching with my sewing machine to the top, bottom and sides of my base mat. 

Then it was time to embellish, I added three diecuts with foam dots from the Playlist collection and made a title arrow using the stickers in the Playlist collection pack. Next I added a couple lines of journaling in black fine tip marker to tell the story. Finally I added some silver glitter dots to the title, date and clock.

The result is a fun layout grid style, perfect for capturing one of our favorite summer events- Uptown Friday Nights. So now you need to pull out those stamps and make some fun background papers of your own. They are wonderful to add to your next layouts or cards, you just might surprise yourself.
