For this month's project, I made a two-page layout. My son just turned 18, and this set was perfect for this. I could also see using it for birthday cards and such, but here's my project.
I used three colors, vanilla creme, olive, and cocoa. I used "let's celebrate 18" to random stamp the background paper, a great way to personalize any layout. Then for embellishments, I stamped the circle date onto vanilla creme and olive circles that I cut out with my cricut (so easy). I attached these with some dimension tape to make them pop a little. Then I added all my pictures and cut out the banner, again with the cricut, as well as the letters and stars. I gotta say, this is one of my favorite tools and best investments I've ever made. I makes customized embellishments a breeze, without having to run out to the store constantly for extras....This entire layout was made with just stamps and cardstock, and a few brads.
