My first-born daughter is currently 8 years old, but I hadn’t yet scrapbooked the monthly growth photos from her first year. I thought this would be a fun way to use the Medium Hazel Stamp—as a repeating element that keeps the layout cohesive. In this case, my daughter’s age in months for each photo.

The letters and numbers of the Medium Hazel Stamp look like those from an old typewriter. Some edges are worn (such as the middle of the number 3) or “overinked” (such as the bottom right portion of the number 0), which lends this great authentic quality. I chose to use zeroes before the single-digit numbers for consistency, so each circle label sticker includes two stamped numerals.

When stamping my daughter’s name below the title, I opted for the original Hazel Alphabet Stamp. It’s a little smaller in size but perfectly matches the Medium Hazel Stamp. Mixing the two gave the layout font consistency without overwhelming it with all large type. For the journaling, I continued the feel of the Hazel stamps with a typewriter font, Remington Noiseless.

The rainbow running across the two pages was inspired by the July 2022 Labels. I selected patterned paper representing each color (with an extra entry in the orange/yellow zone) and stitched them together like a quilt. I embellished each section with coordinating cardstock label stickers, puffy stars and asterisks, and little phrases from the July 2022 Kit—some cut from journaling tags. Of course, I also had to incorporate strips of that inspirational label set in the journaling block and along the edges of the layout.

That’s it! I hope this layout inspires you to include the Medium Hazel Stamp in an upcoming project. Perhaps you’ll use it for a numbered list, too! We can’t wait to see, so be sure to share it in our Facebook Group or on Instagram using the #EllesStudio hashtag!
