Dressed To Impress is the stamp set that I’m using for today’s journal inspiration. My aim is to use my stamp sets and tools beyond card making because they are fantastic for memory keeping and junk journals. This set has stunning images of perfume bottles, lipstick, shoes and interesting backgrounds. Check out my last post too in case you missed it.
Here are the steps to help you copy this layout:
You can start by picking a DSP (Designer Series Paper) of your choice and lay that down first. For fun, I cut mine in the shape of a banner and then stamped images outside, over and around it. (photo below)
I also used a punch called Everyday Label to cut out one of the Memories and More journaling cards. You can also stamp images or words on it similar to what I have done below (hello fabulous). Use background stamps to fill up the white spaces and layer them in different colours for added interest.
Fun tips that you can try:
Use a fringed ribbon or knitting yarn to add a flirty layer to your page. Also, use a wax seal for a 3D element to your page. And, if you have good penmanship why not write a quote in big letters. It’s a fantastic way to personalise your journal spread.

I hope that you enjoyed this journal inspiration and that you’ll also give it a go. Moreover, extend the use of your stamp sets beyond card making like what I have done. Using them in a journal may very well be the fresh start that your old stamp sets have been waiting for.
