Laina Lamb Designs - My Favorite Things

Today I wanted to re-share a couple of my recent layouts and bring your attention to the awesome stamps and dies that I used on them. They are designed by the fantastic Laina Lamb for My Favorite Things. I was blessed to have been sent two of her stamp and die sets to play with from her February release.

My first layout used a combination of both stamp sets and the Notebook Paper die. I die cut a journaling card that I cut from a piece of the Jillibean Soup patterned paper and then stamped it using the Library Card set.


The stamp set I used was the Right This Way set. I stamped the images onto white cardstock using Ranger Distress Ink in Vintage Photo and then trimmed around them before adding them to my layout.


On my second layout, which I just shared recently as part of my Core'dinations DT application, I used the Right This Way set again.



I stamped the long chevron/arrow shaped images along the border between two pieces of patterned paper. I also used a couple of the word stamps and I stamped these directly onto the patterned paper as well using Ranger Distress Ink in Frayed Burlap. These provide a soft subtle accent without being too distracting.



For my third and final layout, I created an art journal type layout by playing with some Gesso, micro beads and crackle paint as well Laina's fabulous stamps and dies. I used the 3x4 Pocket die to create a place to put my journaling and then I hid the pocket behind my photo. I die cut a piece of paper using the Notebook Paper die and wrote my journaling on this piece after I had stamped it with the Library Card set


If you look close, you can see a peek of the Notebook paper die sticking out above the top of the photo.




You can also see some of those fun arrow stamps at work here from the Right This Way set.



Here is a better look at the full stamp sets and dies that I worked with. 





I want to thank Laina again for giving me this opportunity and I am hoping to have another opportunity in the future to play with more of her products as I truly fell in love with the quality of stamps and dies produced by My Favorite Things!
