Inspired Stamps Sneaks!

For this week's great sneak peek I chose to create a layout with photos of my Dad's 87th birthday.  We had celebrated with the whole family over the weekend but on his actual birthday, he just wanted a shake so my sis and I took him to lunch at Chick-fil-a. 

For the layout, I used the new Inspired Stamps set called Amazing Grace. Be sure to click on the layout so you can see the stamps close up.  The side panel uses the handwritten lyrics stamp to the song Amazing Grace.  Isn't it wonderful?  I stamped it 3 times to fill the panel.

I didn't want to have my writing conflict with the stamp writing so I used an envelope for hidden journaling.  On the outside of the envelope, I used 2 more stamps.  One is a flourish and the other is the wonderful scripture.  Now, there's one more stamp from the set I used.  Do you see it?  It's the ink spot on the background!  Isn't that fabulous?!  This set just has so many artful elements to it-I just love it! I also used the flourish stamp on the chipboard musical symbols.

You'll be able to see and purchase all of the new stamps on Friday after noon at the Inspired Stamps on-line store!  In the meantime, go check out Anita's and Chere's posts and the wonderful sneak peeks they have!
