It has been a while since I’ve been in a Stamp Review Crew blog hop, so I’m super happy to participate in this one! This time we are featuring the Everything Eleanor stamp set, which is available in wood mount, clear mount, and digital. (I will be using the digital version for my project today.) You may have just arrived from Shana Gaff’s blog, or if you are going backwards from Betty Traciak’s blog. No worries, even if you are starting here. All of the blogs link in a circle, so you won’t miss a single amazing project. If you get stuck, you can always click the link to the Stamp Review Crew to take you to the master list.
As you have seen throughout the hop, this set makes lovely cards. It also makes elegant scrapbook pages that would be great for formal events such as weddings, engagement parties, or prom. I used it to create a graduation page. This past Friday was the 12th grade commencement ceremony at the school were I work. All of the faculty, K-12, wear gowns and march as part of the ceremony. This year marks the 20th anniversary since the Upper School librarian and I graduated with our Masters’ Degrees in Library Science together. (It’s so fun that we started as study partners in Library School, and have spent the last 17 years working at the same school.) I made sure we got some pictures together.
The different stamps in Everything Eleanor made it really easy to put this page together. Because you can re-size digital stamps, I was able to create two different sizes of the label stamp to layer together. I used faux embossing on the background. It is really easy to do! Place a stamp anywhere on your background, then change its color to match the background. Click on drop shadow, and increase the percentage to somewhere between 50% and 75%. I used 65% on this page.
I hope you enjoyed this look at Everything Eleanor. Your next stop is over at Betty Traciak’s blog. I can’t wait to see what she made!
