A great thing about acrylic stamps is you can shape them. I used a border stamp from Wings which is straight but placed my block on top of the shape I wanted to stamp on. Then I formed my stamp to fit that shape, then ink and stamp.
Here is where I saved paper. My feelings are if you can not see it then you can use it for somewhere else.
Backside of the layout. This layout is from Close To My Heart's Magic found on page 28 and the paper, stickies and stamped images are from the Wings Collection. I would like to thank Myra Grodzuik for the idea of paper and stamp choices. The ribbon is new to CTMH it comes pleated but I ripped out the stitching and scrunched it, holding it in place with staples. I like to save paper wherever I can so these pictures show how I was able to save some paper.

I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have two children, which I thank Jesus for. My passion is scrapbooking and crafting. My family knows the camera comes out for all events and activities. Yes my husband complains when I ask him to take a picture of me, though I also want to be included in the scrapbooks which I spend so much time on. Because of my love of scrapbooking and Close to My Heart products has led me to becoming a consultent.
