Hi friends! Ashley here today with some more love for Take a Hike! My family went to a local "castle festival"- complete with jousting, juggling, music, and medieval food! It also included a trip to the top of Manderscheid Castle, the first castle my son has ever been to.
I decided Take a Hike would be perfect to document our "castle climb". I used various little bits, like the explore bingo card and adventure flash card sticker, tucking them behind my photos for just a bit more depth. I also added a stamped sentiment ("you are here") and foot print sticker to create an embellishment cluster.
I don't usually stamp on my pages for one simple reason- I'm afraid of messing up! However, I've learned a few tips to really help me break the stamps out more often. First, I try to only buy clear stamps. This lets me test drive its positioning on the page before I ever ink it up. I can just lay the stamp where I think I may want it, adjust it here and there and even change my mind without fear of having to redo anything. Second, I always test stamp before it goes to the page. This ensures that you'll get a clear impression and that your ink pad isn't drying up in places.
Thanks for dropping by Simple Stories today- enjoy your three day weekend!
