With honeycomb patterns and hexagons all the rage, I thought I needed to make my own honeycomb background stamp. All I did to make this one was google "HONEYCOMB GRAPHIC." I found a free PDF on a teacher's resource site, printed it out in the size I wanted (using the size percentage feature on my printer).
I cut out the design from the paper and taped it directly onto my adhesive foam, using a generous amount of Scotch (cello) tape. The tape ensured that it would stay put while I cut the pattern out of the craft foam.
In retrospect, I wish I had made it a little larger. If I use it on my Project Life journaling card, it would be more convenient if I could cover the entire card with one application. That being said, I find it easy to match up the pattern since my clear packaging is easy to see through.
This next stamp is a coffee bean! As you can see, I haven't used it yet. I plan to make a pattern. I think the organic shape will look quite nice. I'll be sure to share it here when I finally do come up with a good pattern.
Over the past few months, I have been spending more time than usual in coffee shops, so I am sure I saw a graphic of a coffee bean and came up with this design.
This banner stamp is one of my favorites! I have used it several times in my Project Life album when documenting birthdays. It is so simple to make and looks adorable.
Here it is in action on a Project Life Clementine Journaling Card from a January spread.
Here is a quick star. As you can see, I drew a quick star, and used my scissors to clip a few cuts and I had an instant star stamp! I used it on the honeycomb journaling card above (very first photo).
Next is my XO stamp with the heart "O." On Valentine's Day I noticed two gift bags in the back of a car with this adorable symbol on them. I made a mental note, went home and made these stamps.
Here is the XO stamp in action during Week 7.
This is how I used it on a journaling card.
I was killing time in my local Apple store waiting for my computer to be fixed and I noticed an iPhone phone cover with the baseball stitching on its corners. A lightbulb went on above my head at that very moment! The iPhone shape is the same as a Project Life journaling card. And I thought it was adorable.
I hope to make journaling cards in the same design using a basketball print and a volleyball print.
Finally here is my movie camera stamp. My kids love making movies using our video cameras. I made this stamp to include on a label any time I put a photo of the kids doing their movie stuff, whether it is filming or showing their finished product to their audience.
This page also shows my XO Heart stamp, my banner stamp, my star stamp, honeycomb stamp and my cupcake stamp.
