Technique Tuesday | Life at Home

Hi friends!  Today, I'm sharing a new project for Technique Tuesday!  I got to work with the new Love Home stamp set in my Traveler's Notebook.  This stamp set is perfect for our family, because we homeschool, so we spend a lot of time at home!!

I started this Traveler's Notebook layout with a large photo, and paired it with a Pie Chart patterned paper.  In the center of the Pie Chart, I stamped the "Life at Home" sentiment as the title of my layout.  Then I added a little bit of journaling and embellishing to complete the left hand side of the layout.

I wanted to include some stamping on the photo, so I used the Oval & Rectangle Stitched Label Dies with a rainbow patterned paper from the Amy Tangerine Stay Sweet collection.  I loved that the rainbow patterned paper coordinated with the Pie Chart colors.  Then I stamped two sentiments in black ink, from the Love Home stamp set on the die cut pieces.  I placed one at the top right hand side and one at the bottom left hand side of the photo.

Then I used the cute bird house image from the stamp set to create a fussy cut embellishment.  I stamped the bird house in black ink on two different patterned papers from the Stay Sweet collection.  Next, I cut out the pieces and trimmed away the bottom portion of the bird house on one of the patterned papers.  I adhered the roof to the other part of the bird house and then placed it at the top of the Pie Chart.
