Sweet Stamps to Embellish Your Pockets

Hi fellow sweet stampers!  Colie here today, for the first time (but not the last!).  I hope all of my sweet friends reading this are having a great day!

I have a confession to make: I have never considered myself a “stamper”.  “Well, what are you doing here” you might ask?  I never considered myself a stamper, but the more time I spend around the Sweet Stamp Shop the more I realize that ANYONE can be a stamper, even those who focus heavily on pocket style pages like me!  I am sure you already knew this, but I notice so many pocket scrappers who shy away from using stamps.  So, here is an easy way to use stamps without worrying about making a mistake on your finished project.

2014-03-06 15.12.55This is a technique I have learned from my card maker friends and I am translating it over to pocket pages.  I stamp an image on scrap cardstock and cut it out.  It’s that simple!  Then I can add it to my page anywhere I like without worrying about messing up the stamping process.

2014-03-06 15.35.07The Speech Bubbles stamp is perfect for this technique! I also used Doggy Dog, Starts Here, and Outline Upper Alpha, check them all out in the shop!

SpeechBubbles__42625.1393858519.386.513The best part is that you can stamp and cut ahead of time and have these cute embellishments on hand when creating your pages (or cards, or anything!).  Here are the finished results:

Before I go, be sure you are all signed up for the Sweet Stamp Shop new release event on Facebook.  Be the first to see the new stamps and get a little discount in the process!  See you soon!
