For my Mama Elephant February Stampede project, I created a layout. My husband and I pretty much text in pictures. The ME Say What stamp set is perfect for scrapbooking dialogue and conversations. I used a bevy of sentiments from the set and created a grid by sewing clear pockets to the layout.


Here's a closer look at the details:

I stamped the "Say What" sentiment and the arrow on a punched tab. The arrow is perfect here because when you flip the pocket, there's some hidden journaling appropriately hiding behind "Say What?"

I like keeping more personal thoughts and messages tucked away and keeping the layout clean with more of a focus on the photos and letting them speak for themselves.

For the "Heeeeyyyyy" banner trio, I clipped the super cute stamp, "Heeeeyyyyy Sexy Lady" and shaped it to the curves of the ribbon banners to create my layout title. The best thing is that I can put the stamp together just as easily when I want to use the entire sentiment. A perfect stamp set for all of your scrapbooking and card-making needs. Happy stamping!
