These are the $1 stamps I purchased from Joann's. They look like doodled frames - so cute.
I stamped the frames on a variety of paper. I used both a 6x6" pad from My Mind's Eye called Market, and also some vintage text and journal paper.
Afterwards, I cut them all out.
Now for the photos. About a year ago I purchased a Dover book/CD of Old-Fashion Children's Photos. The photos were originally in black and white, but using a software tool I was able to change the color to a sepia tone.
After you cut all the images out, they look so much more dimensional and seem to come to life.
I added the photos to the tags using some dimensional double stick tape to add some depth. Then I embellished the photos with hats, numbers, words and flowers. I love these number stamps too, I purchased them from a stationary store in SF Japantown, but you could also buy them online. I bought them in several sizes as well, and I love the wooden box it comes in!
I think I'll be using these images more often, they're adorable!
Hope you enjoyed this post, and have a great weekend!
