Final Cruise Layouts With Stamping

In the weeks leading up to my completion of our 10th Anniversary Cruise albums, I used inspiration from a couple of online classes as I scrapped the final stories and photos from that trip. This first layout was inspired by a challenge in the Art-Science workshop to start with a story and add a pocket to the page. I created my pocket using a sheet of stationary from our stateroom.

I took inspiration from May Flaum's Stamping for Scrapbookers class for these next layouts. On this first one, I stamped an image on the journaling card.

I used stamps for the title and the white border strip on this next layout.

I stamped directly on a few of the photos in this next layout, and added several stamps as accents scattered around the page.

And finally, I used some large flourish stamps on this two page layout.

Have you stamped on your layouts lately recently?


  1. You've really taken a great deal of inspiration from your online classes

  2. I've really enjoyed seeing your cruise pages,Melissa....I just love cruising.

  3. Love the idea of using stationary from the cruise to make a pocket!

  4. You should have a whole cruise album by now! Great pages---as usual!

  5. I did a little stamping this morning (but really I should do more because you are right: it can add a lot)

    I'm such a fan of pockets on pages. Don't they work especially well on holiday pages like this when there are always lots of extras in include

  6. I do occasional stamping on my layouts - when I remember I have them! Love the pocket made from the stationery :)

  7. Well done on getting all the pages done. I like stamping on my layouts - as well as on my cards. Pocket pages for holiday and travel are always a good idea.


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
