Special Guest - Marsha Farris

Hi, Whimsy fans!  Today we welcome the uber-talented Marsha Farris to the blog!

Hey, friends! I'm excited to be with you today, sharing a traveler's notebook album layout for my first guest design post for Whimsy Stamps!

I created this spread to document my little niece's favorite birthday gift. I began by trimming two pieces of white cardstock to fit as full pages in my album. I added splatters to each page using black acrylic paint and a paintbrush. I chose a watercolor floral patterned paper from the Fabulous Florals Paper Pack and cut out several gorgeous flowers and flower clusters. Next, I trimmed a black and white striped paper from the same paper pack on the diagonal and cut it into a few strips, allowing space to tuck the fussy cut flowers.

I used another striped paper to back my photo and trimmed it into a tag shape. Tags are always a favorite, so I could not resist including one on the layout!  

Using the Happy Large Word Die and black cardstock, I cut out the word "happy" to serve as a portion of the title. I completed the title with the Cross-Stitched Sentiments Stamp. Then, I did more stamping above the photo with the same stamp set and black ink.

I love how my layout turned out using Whimsy Stamps products!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I will see you again soon with more inspiration!
