Stamped Family Portraits


Yeah! I got it done!

I actually made two different layouts and am saving the one for us when the baby is born, although I think I like the one I am giving away just as much as the other-might have to make yet another. :)

They really don't take much time at all-the stamping is what takes the longest. I have to tell you too, that I absolutely hate measuring. I don't like extra steps and eyeball most things I stamp. But for this, I use a stampa-ma-jig. Otherwise, I end up stamping at least three different family portraits usually messing up one at the end before I get one all the way right.

This family has 3 dogs and she told me the colors and a beta fish. (I drew the fishbowl in.) I also added clouds this time and like that it helps with all the white that is typically at the top of the family.

Anyway-now Ijust need to buy a frame and put it in. I really like the outcome of both. It makes me want to try more too.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE these stamped families! SO cute! You could totally sell them! SO I've been amiss from the blogging world lately, but doing a quick overview I'm amazed at all the things you have gotten done! I hope the next few weeks treat you well! Can't wait to see pics of baby to be!

So, what size is the final product? I am already thinking about paper, but need to know how much. Let me know.

I just put it in an 8x10 frame, so you can use an 8 1/2x11 paper and just cut the outside paper down to and 8x10. Make sense?

Seems easy enough on my end...;)
