“Hello Inspired by Stamping friends. Today I’d like to share a layout I created with two of the latest stamp releases. I’m always inspired by IBS stamps and my favorite part of the new release are the word/sentiment stamps. Joanna designs stamps that makes it easy for me to say the right words in my projects. 🙂
Being a Mom layout
Since the sets were geared towards the Mother’s day theme, I decided to create a page about being a mother. One of the things I am consciously trying to do is turn the camera towards me or hand it to my husband so I can be in the photos. I know that someday, my children will appreciate these photos of me in it. I compiled four of them in this layout. All of these pictures were taken last year.
I used the lovely papers from the Vintage Rose paper pack as my background. To give it some interest, I placed them at an angle and in strips. This allowed me to put more of them in my page without taking away too much from my photos. I also used neutral toned cardstocks to make them pop out better.
I stamped this beautiful floral design on white cardstock, cut the shape out and then adhered it to my page with foam adhesive. To give it more dimension, I added some rhinestones in the center of the flowers.
My favorite part of this page are the sentiments. I stamped a few of them that I thought matched my page theme very well on yellow paper, trimmed them with a notch on the right side and then stapled the sides to add some more interest and texture.
I used the “always remember” part of a sentiment to create a visual triangle in the page.
Thank you so much for stopping by today and I can’t wait to see how you turn my layout as an inspiration for your next crafty project.

Next up, I get to share a project that I have been saving for today. This week we are sharing scrapbooking and projects for organizing. I decided to take on the organizing bit as I have been very very slowly organizing my craft room. I bought these little jars last month from the cheap shop. What a find! I was over the moon excited. I have had my buttons in pull out drawers, see below, that have been overflowing with buttons now that I have a bit more buttons.
Here is a photo where I use to store them and the link to see the original post.
I already had them separated by color so organizing wasn’t too bad.
I love the pastels of this photo and had to share it on Instagram the other day. It reminds me of Easter and Spring.
And here are my finished button jars sitting in front of my organized ribbon. Each color matches with my ribbon. It is so pretty. I have asked my hubby to create something to lift my ribbon jars a wee bit higher so that I can get to it easier. I am sure he will do that in the next 6 to 9 months. haha!
Here they are all sitting on top of my new shelves that we purchased for my craft room. I have boxes in each cubby hole that fits perfectly with all my crafty things. Each item has been labeled and stored. The buttons & ribbon now are on the top of the shelves and have taken center stage in the craft room. They bring color & brightness to my craft room.
I first glued on some Scallop Crochet Trim around each jar. I love this smaller trim as it laid perfectly around the jar and was also small enough that didn’t take up too much space.
Next, I stamped out my labels from our Fancy Tags stamp set. Each one was stamped in kraft ink and then I fussy cut each for a tighter edge around the image.
Our Crafty Organization stamp set was used for my “buttons” sentiment. I used a different color for each jar to coordinate with the buttons.
Next, I used my Crop A Dile and put little brads on each tag.
I then tied each tag on with a little piece of linen thread.
I hope that you have enjoyed today’s inspirations. A special thank you to Grace for creating such a beautiful layout! Thank you to everyone that has visited us today. Please don’t forget to check out our blog candy prize this week! You won’t want to miss this one! Big Hugs! Joanna & the IBS Team
