For my Mama Elephant March Stampede project, I created a layout documenting my work desk on Valentine's Day. My husband sends me the loveliest floral arrangements every year. In our effort to reduce waste, he sent potted blooms the last two Valentine's Days. I love this photo because it shows last year's orchids which bloomed again along with this year's overflowing kalanchoe and ivy arrangement. Today Was and Lovely Mums is the perfect combination to highlight this photo.


Materials used: Mama Elephant Today Was and Lovely Mums stamp sets, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, ColorBox Cat's Eye Queue Inks

Here's a closer look at the stamped details:

This is one of my favorite images in the stamp set -- "Today Was" label is perfect for everyday scrapbooking!

I love the cute ampersand which is perfect as an embellishment or visually connecting words. The chevron frame is also awesome for journaling.

Finally, from Lovely Mums flower as an ombre embellishment.

I keep saying this, but seriously, these stamps are perfect for all of your scrapbooking and card-making needs. Happy stamping!
