Beach Layout with August Stamp of the Month



When Daysha sent me these photos from her and Sage's trip to Hawaii a couple of months ago, I died on the spot. How beautiful are they?  They deserved a layout just as beautiful to freeze the memory in time (that's why we scrapbook, right?).  I hope I came through with this one!

 I used the August Stamp of the Month (Framed), as well as the Documenting Moments stamp set (it's a MUST have!).   The August Stamp of the Month (below) is only $5 ($12.95 savings) with every $50 you spend (before shipping and tax). Spend $100, get 2...and so on.  When ordering on my website, you'll be prompted to add your set(s) before you check out. Easy, peasy! 


August Stamp of the Month - Framed



Documenting Moments stamp set

The title I just hand-lettered with a journaling pen. I created the watercolor background by first wetting my paper a bit, then mixing reinkers (I used Pixie, Canary and Smoothie) with water and using a large paintbrush, just lightly going side to side. I love the effect! 



I embossed the frames from the August Stamp of the Month in gold and then just stamped the words in black. I cut them out and popped them up with 3D foam tape for dimension. I added some gold accents with our Gold Sequins and our Gold Polka Dotted Washi Tape (retiring August 31...get it while you can!).  I've included a supply list at the bottom of this post, complete with links and photos, for your convenience.

Oh Karen...this is just a darling layout. Don't know how I missed it but I'm glad it popped up again. Love the gold embossing and the use of the August SOTM with the other sentiments. Your watercolor background is such a great accent. Totally adorable!

Hi Karen, my friend is obsessed with finding the bag in this layout! Do you know or could you share who makes it or where to find it? Thanks in advance.

Justine, it was made by a company called Bodomint. Google them! You can also follow them on Instagram. I hope that helps!
