Fun family layouts are a personal favorite, I also love to add stamping to them whenever possible. Sometimes I just use stamps to add subtle touches such as in this layout. I used the new Hampton Art clear stamp set and a banner tag with a grid based design.
My family and I discovered a really fun place a couple weeks ago. It was EnterTrainment Junction near Cincinnati, Ohio and it was all about trains. So my 7 year old son was in heaven, they had the most amazing model train displays I have ever seen. So of course I needed to create a layout to remember this day. I chose a sketch from Creative Scrappers and then modified it a bit to allow for two photos and 2 – 3”x4” cards. I wanted playful colors and designs so I used Jillibean Soup Yellow Pepper Saffron for the papers. The first stamping I did was on the journaling card, I added the little heart and Love ya sentiment in gray ink.
Next I stamped in gray ink the banner tag with the sentiment “Good Time” over and over again as shown. I think this makes a fun embellishment piece perfect for the page. Using the sketch I chose my patterned papers and cut accordingly and laid out my grid design. I cut and sized my photos to fit. All the pieces seemed to get a little lost on the black polka dot paper so I added the silver cardstock mat.
The result is a fun family layout perfect for capturing any good time event. Take a look at your stamp sets and see what embellishments you can create with text or small design items like I did in this layout.
