Hey everyone! It’s Kira and I am back with a 12×12 scrapbook layout. I don’t know what it is about the tiniest stamps, but my eye is immediately drawn to them. So it’s no surprise that I had to make a layout using only the tiny triangle stamp included on the Full Circle stamp set
I started by looking on Pinterest for a “geometric pattern with triangles”. And I found this image. Isn’t it pretty?!
Then I chose my title for my layout, since I had planned on stamping the above pattern on my title. I ended up with “fixing tools”. My son (who is three years old) loves helping his dad build or fix anything and he refers to the tools they use as “fixing tools”, so I thought the title would be fitting for this photo of my boys taking apart my armoire.
I used the font Blackout and sized my title as big as I could get it on the 12×12 cardstock. Then I cut it out with my Cricut. I kept the cardstock on the cutting mat while I stamped, this gives you a lot more control in your stamping.
Now the stamping! I chose colors that mimicked those in the Pinterest photo I had found, and then stuck fairly close to the pattern. I’m not gonna lie, it took a long time and my hand was sore afterwards. Lol. But the end result is so cool! One trick when attempting a pattern like this is to aim for imperfection. If you start out with perfectly straight lines and no white space between the triangles, you might be disappointed as you continue to work through the title. I kept it kinda sloppy so if I messed up, it wouldn’t mess up my entire layout.
After I stamped all of my letters, I adhered my title on a piece of white textured cardstock. Then I added some hand stitching around each of the letters in a cornflower blue thread.
I decided to place my photo directly on top of my title and did very little embellishing since the title is very busy and I didn’t want to distract from all the hard work I had done.
Thanks for stopping by!
Until next time,
