There are a lot of Merry moments ahead and what better way to record those moments than with the latest (and greatest!) stamp set in the shop, A Merry Moment! Today I’m sharing several fun ways to incorporate stamping into your memory keeping featuring this fantastic stamp set. While I’m using it for a “Christmas” layout, you will understand the quotations once you read the journaling, it’s really suitable for any occasion with phrases such as “favorite,” “love this,” and “good times.”

The three circular stamps with phrases were the perfect compliment to both the Magical Acetate Circles and the ornaments with my reflection that comprise the large, letter sized photo background of this layout. I simply stamped them on white cardstock then cut them out with the appropriately-sized circle punches. They really stand out against the tree branch lit background, don’t you think? For a little added color, I stamped one of the simple phrase stamps, “Merry Moment,” underneath “Love This” to create a longer sentiment.
Layering the stamps as I did above with the phrases can also be done by combining the star sprinkles with the sentiment or phrase as well. As with any stamp, embossing adds a sparkly touch too! Also seen in the photo below is using a stamped image directly on your photo. I was super brave and embossed the backdrop of stars with gold embossing powder, creating a subtle yet sparkly band that spans the width of the page, mimicking the sparkle of the tree lights.
Did you add the White Parker Alphabet Cardstock Stickers to your cart? If you didn’t, you definitely need to! They are the perfect canvas for these stamps and I added a little star shine as I’ve done for part of my title using the starry background stamp with a VersaFine red ink.
While I was working the circles as I have done as a go-to design for a number of layouts, both with a large photo or with multiple circular photos, the Monthly Numbers Stamp is also circular and the perfect compliment to the round orbs on this layout featuring a WAY too early Christmas tree! And, of course, the circular stickers in the Holiday Fun Stickers fit perfectly in here, too!
There aren’t many of these versatile stamps left in the store so if you haven’t already grabbed one, be sure to pop over and add it to your cart before they disappear!
