I decided to use this stamp set for a layout of our move almost 5 years ago.

I have to be honest I was not sure I would use the one I chose as the base page; however, when I was playing around with this layout this one was perfect. I used the So Much Happy paper pack as well as the So Much Happy Puffy Stickers.

For this detail I used the Thin Cuts – Stitched Circles and Thin Cuts ~ Basic Circles.

I love the number with this stamp set as they fit perfectly in the date box.  I used Smoothie ink to stamp the numbers.

If you love this stamp set you will want to be sure you purchase it this month as it is only available the month of March and if you spend $50 on qualifying product it could be yours for $5!!

Your next stop is along this hop is MICHELLE STEWART’S Blog, so hop on over and see what wonderful creation she has for you today.

Happy Crafting!

Studio J – Digital Delights

If you have not tried this I highly recommend you do.  It is so easy to complete some of your layout and it takes some much less time than if you were to scrapbook them the conventional way.  Now don’t get me wrong I still love to scrapbook from scratch with paper and will never give that up.  But if you are like me and most scrapbookers you are years behind.  I was able to finish 11 layouts in about 4 hours. If i was to have scrapbooked those same pages it would have taken my more than 24 hours. Pick a project or two and give it a try, you will be surprised at how nice they turn out and how much you can get done. I used the express collection for most of my layouts. Take a look at some of the layouts I created.
