How can it be August 20th already? Wow! Is it just me or did summer kick into hyperdrive for the last couple of weeks? Welcome to Day Twenty of 31 Pages in 31 days, my (you guessed it!) 31-day-straight challenge to produce one scrapbook page per day. I've actually more than beat my goal if you count double-page spreads! But I'm still going to share an inspiration page every day to cheer you on to the finish.
Today's inspiration page is one I made with pieces from the homework packet my Scrapbooking Summer School participants got for Week Two. They can do anything they want with the contents of the envelope and the goal is to use as many of the pieces as possible.
I used the fun, vintage-inspired Guy Greetings stamp set to create some masculine patterns on scrap cardstock strips. They were all eleven inches long, so I just kept adding strips until I had the full 11x11 background in place.
The hats stamp in this set is all one piece, with the hats arranged in a strict grid of rows. I think it's more fun to have the hats appear to have been tossed in the air, so I cut the stamp apart into the six individual hats. Did you know you can do that?
That's it from me today. Fifteen-year-old Dan still has the chickenpox, so we're binge-watching Star Trek: the Next Generation together. I know it won't be very long before he's not home for me to baby any more, so I'm trying to remind myself of that when the to-do list is hollering at me. I want him to remember a mom who thought he was more important than whatever I hoped to cross off today.
Make it so, Number One.
Love this! Sooooooooo many possibilities! This ranks up there with the awesome layout that used the Build-a-Birthday stamp set a few years ago. I've used it multiple times with different color combinations and stamps.

One of my favorite stamp sets. Great masculine spread that's not too complicated. YAY!

Love the use of strips. Nice way to use up some extra scraps too. Any color, any stamp set.
