Scrapbook Sunday ~ Background Stamping

I still remember my first SU party.  I asked the demonstrator if we could use stamps in our scrapbooking and she didn't really know.  If she had been a scrapbooker and could show me how to combine stamping and scrapbooking I probably would have signed up with her years ago. 
 
 
 
 
On this page I finally figured out how to combine the two.  Admittedly I need some work.  This page would have looked so much better if I had done the stamping first instead of adhering it to my background page and trying to stamp it in my book.   Live and learn.
 
 
 
What I do like is how the background stamp filled in the "empty" space around this picture and balanced the page for me.  Yes, you can combine stamping and scrapbooking.  Hopefully I will be able to teach myself more, or finally be able to find somebody else to show me how.  If not, you will see me grow if you follow my blog.  Everyone has to start somewhere, right?
 
Creative Blessings,
Heather North

The stamping done on your designer paper really adds to this layout! Nice job, Heather!

Lovely layout, Heather. Those flourishes are the perfect touch.
