This has to be one of my favorite challenges. I knew when the challenge was announced that I wanted to use one of my old scrapbook as inspiration. As I went through my scrapbook pages I realized that I have not been scrapbooking as much!!
That is a new goal for me in 2015 as well to fit more scrapbooking in! Scrapbooking was one of the main reasons I fell in love with the Stampin' Up! products. What better than stamps to add to my collection of supplies. When I started scrapbooking I bought lots and lots of stickers. It started to get costly. I kept thinking one sticker on one page. This was before the 40% off coupons came into place. I knew that if I continued with the sticker route that scrapbooking was going to get costly. Well with stamps not only do I create one page, I can use the same images on future projects, cards and gift packages. I can also then pass on the stamps to someone else when I am done working with them. It makes me happy to see so much mileage comes from one set of stamps.
Here is my Fast-Food Friends stamp set used on a page with my nieces at McDonald's. I am so sad to see this set go. I made sure I picked it up before the set retires June 1st. We are a McDonald's family. Who can resist the salty fries!
Here is my page I was inspired by. It was my nephew's scrapbook page I made in 2012. Click here to learn more details on the page.
