The Long Way Home S1606

Today I would like to share with you a layout I have made for my son's album featuring the June Stamp of the Month, The Long Way Home S1606. This stamp set is available only during this month for $27, or for just $7.50 when you place an order of $75 or more. 

Don't forget to Pin this photo to Pinterest!

This page is all about finding the best route to take when riding to school so the Stamp of the Month was perfect! I used papers from my Urban WOTG Kit and most of them were leftover scraps! The Stoked stamp is from the set that comes with the kit. I didn't use a sketch for this one sorry, I just made it up as I went. Once it was all stuck down I started stamping.

First I stamped the Sun in Saffron Ink under the corner of the word Stoked. Then I stamped the winding arrow in Saffron Ink using second generation stamping straight on the page under the journal box. I stamped it again using Sapphire Ink on a scrap of Whisper cardstock, fussy cut it out and adhered it just above the other one.  Then I stamped the bike in Sapphire. 

I then stamped the scenic route image straight on the background page in Sapphire Ink and it was all finished! 

I would love you to leave a comment before heading off to see the next great idea:

Thanks for looking!
