Fine & Dandy

Scrapbook Candy
Sometimes it's fun to take a stamp set and make some Scrapbook Candy that you can use on cards and scrapbook pages. I used the Gimme Some Sugar stamp set to make some candy to use in the future. I also used the You Amaze Me Petite Perks for some sentiments.
To get started with your candy create a title with your stamp set for a scrapbook page. Then stamp all the images in the stamp set with the desired colors. Cut out your images. Cut shapes for mounting the stamped images. I used the Basic Circle Tags, Basic Hearts, and various shaped scalloped circles. Stamp your sentiments and mount your images on the cut shapes. Your candy is ready for use.

Getting Ready for Valentines

With Color My Heart
Using Bashful CS for the base and Glacier CS for the insert I cut
two pieces for each end with a decorative border. Adding
the Bashful Glitter paper for the hearts and heart border 
adds sparkle for a treasured valentine card.

She's Always Ready

Picture Perfect Ashley
Our granddaughter, Ashley, has always been ready for the camera. With her
grandpa being a photographer the combination of the two has blessed our family with
some amazing photos. For this page I just opened the photo drawer, closed my eyes,
and picked a photo. It didn't matter which one because she's always picture perfect.
I was happy that this photo goes with the Chelsea Garden Scrapbooking stamp set.
The pattern for this layout is pattern #2 in Make It From My Heart Vol. III
