Hey there! It’s Kira and I am back with another 8.5×11 scrapbook layout using the Ink Road Stamps set, Expecto Stampo. This is probably the most use stamp set in my stash! But that’s because we are HUGE Harry Potter nerds around these parts.
I started by printing my photo on an 8.5×11 piece of glossy photo paper. My son is wearing his favorite Gryffindor shirt and his Harry Potter glasses in the photo and he could not be any cuter. This picture NEEDED to be printed as large as it could be.
My original idea for this layout was not to fussy cut the photo, but I got the wild idea to do it and I am so happy I did. After I fussy cut it out, I traced it on some white cardstock. I knew I wanted to do a lot of stamping, and this saved me so much time since I knew exactly where my stamping needed to go.
Then I used black ink and stamped almost every stamp in the set all over my page. After stamping, I splattered the page with some black splatters. I bumped my photo up on some foam and adhered it over the stamped page.
Thanks for stopping by!
