March Stamp of the Month - Choose Happy Layout

March's Choose Happy stamp set has adorable frames that make the most awesome place for stamping sentiments or adding journaling. They're also fantastic for creating a cool doodled background. I like all three techniques so I decided why not put them all on one layout? :)

This fabulous paper is actually a retired special from a few years back called Dream Pop. It was one of my favorites, but I never really got a chance to use it. So now I'm making up for that. 

The funky wooden shapes are also retired, but the wooden clothespins are still available. They make a great pull for the hidden journaling I tucked behind the photo. I used Honey ink for the frames and 3-D Foam Tape to create the pocket.

My favorite part was stamping the frames and borders directly onto the layout base and then coloring them with our ShinHan Touch markers - Tender Pink and Golden Yellow worked perfectly with Juniper and Sunset ink.

Other fun touches? A border made using our Chevron Border Punch and a little added dimension with the Silver Washi Tape.

March's Stamp of the Month can be yours for $5 with a $50 purchase. Get yours today on my website!

I love what you did with this stamp set. I've created 3 cards so far with this stamp set, but hadn't used the bracket style stamp yet. Great way to use it and so out of the box. :)

Oh snap! I love the use of stamps to create that border at the top!
