Unity & Brutus Monroe Blog HOP!!

Hey—Happy Thursday! Today I’m participating in one of the most-anticipated hops of my crafty life and am sharing an 8-1/2-x-11-inch scrapbook layout as part of the Unity & Brutus Monroe Blog Hop. YES!

Here’s a peek at the layout using all four of the NEW background stamps rolling out for today’s hop.

I used Spilled Paint, Barn Wall, Hit the Brick, and Dance with Denim on my layout above simply by stamping them onto cardstock and using my Silhouette to cut out the various circles on the layout and strips that make the border on the bottom of the layout. You could also utilize a punch if that’s what you have in your crafty arsenal. Of note, the strips were adhered to my layout using a zig-zag stitch.
To save time and energy, but mostly to be happy with the end results, I used a sketch I found online at They have quite a few sketches I use from time to time.

The selfie of my daughter and me in the layout was taken during a concert at the Ironstone Amphitheatre in Murphys, California, this past August when we saw Bush, The Cult, and Stone Temple Pilots. We had a blast together. It was a great show and a beautiful venue to relax and sip wine. I’m definitely going there again. Check it out if you live nearby.
Here’s a close-up of the layout.

These background stamps are so versatile. You can use them on all of your craft projects including cards, mixed media canvases, tags—you name it. I really don’t know which one is my favorite. That’s why I used them all.
