Noon ET: 5 Tips for Stamping Inside Your Daily Pages Notebooks (Featured Stamp Set: Daily Pages)
Are you nervous about how to start stamping in your Daily Pages notebook? Here are five tips for stamping in Daily Pages (or any notebook). We’ll go through different hands-on ways that you can bring stamping into your Daily Pages habit and level up your stamping skills.
In this workshop, learn multiple ways to use your favorite stamps on a regular basis. You’ll be using your stuff, having fun, and becoming a better artist. Whether you’re a novice or an expert, you’ll leave this class with something new in your toolbox.
Supplies Needed: your favorite stamp sets, white cardstock, and quick-drying inks in your favorite colors.
1pm ET: Creating Unique Colorful Patterns with Stamping & Precision Cutting (Featured Stamp Set: Shapes)
Do you like colors, shapes, and patterns? This is the workshop for you. We’ll be creating patterns with different shapes and papers for a look that you can repeat a million times and will never look the same twice.
In this workshop, learn how to create unique colorful geometric patterns out of simple stamped and precision-cut shapes. These patterns can then be used as bases for page backgrounds, tags, cards, or anything where you need a bit of interest or a pop of color. You’ll be able to create infinite patterns once you know the technique!
Supplies Needed: a stamp set with geometric shapes (like this one), white and a few different colors of cardstock, and quick-drying inks in your favorite colors.
2 pm ET: Using a stamping platform to help battle your inner perfectionist (Featured Stamp Sets: Seneca alpha & Seneca alpha outline)
Does stamping feel difficult because of perfectionist tendencies? Even though stamping is an imperfect art, it’s normal to feel the pulls of perfection at times. Stamping platforms (rukristin uses a MISTI*) are a helpful tool for making end result look the way you had imagined.
In this workshop, learn how to create beautifully lined-up titles with ease. No more worrying if your ink doesn’t come out perfectly the first time because the stamping platform lets us stamp down again in the exact same place.
These stamping platforms can take some of the scare-ies out of just starting to throw down your stamps for a long title or journaling. This workshop will show you how to use a stamping platform, so you’ll know if it’s right for you or how to get started with the one you’ve got!
Supplies Needed: a stamping platform (if you have one), alpha stamp sets (solid and outline if you have them), white cardstock, and quick-drying inks in your favorite colors.
Noon ET: Breaking the blank page with journaling stamps (Featured Stamp Set: Currently 4×6)
Ever feel like the blank page can just be so overwhelming? Me too! That’s why I created the #CurrentlyList journaling challenge – and every time I make anything inspired by Currently, I always think about how we’re going to break away from the blank page.
In this workshop, learn techniques for making the blank page less daunting and using your stamps to journal the stories you want to tell. You’ll leave this workshop with ways to document your life, even when your mind is blank.
Supplies Needed: your favorite journaling stamps (especially Currently stamps), any cardstock or patterned paper with lines, and quick-drying inks in your favorite colors.
1 pm ET: Getting the most out of metallic inks (Featured Stamp Set: Feminist)
Don’t metallic inks look awesome sometimes? The look of silver and gold inks can really make a project pop. Did you know that there are specific tips and techniques that can help you get the most out of your metallic inks to make your stamp projects look fabulous?
In this workshop, learn the top tips for using metallic inks on your projects. We’ll be talking about how to get the cleanest images, how to make sure your stamped image is sparkly, and what to do to prevent smearing. You’ll leave this workshop well-informed on all things metallic ink!
Supplies Needed: your favorite stamp set, white cardstock (black cardstock optional), metallic inks in any colors
2 pm ET: Getting yourself onto the page (Featured Stamp Set: Thursday3)
Your story matters, and sometimes you need a good excuse to get yourself on the page. Stamping is a really great excuse to play around and tell your story at the same time. Through simple #Thursday3 stamped selfie pages – whether in Daily Pages, Book of Me, or other story albums, you’ll have a simple page template to tell the stories of your right now life.
In this workshop, learn how to create simple pages that document who you are right now. Complete with photo, journaling, and stamping. You’ll leave this workshop with ideas for multiple pages in this format that you’ll be able to document throughout the year in whatever style scrapbook you make!
Supplies Needed: stamp set with numbers, stamp set with frames, cardstock, quick drying inks in your favorite colors.
Stamp Glamp Digital Knapsack
The Stamp Glamp Digital Knapsack is a collection of digital items (playlists, checklists, printables, etc) that will help you have an awesome time here during the Stamp Glamp retreat.
You can access these items inside the Stamp Glamp retreat classroom. Each item is housed inside its own lesson. Some of these items are up right now, and some of these items are coming soon and will be up before Stamp Glamp weekend.
Stamp Glamp Campground
We have a private group for the Stamp Glamp retreat. It has the same functions as all of the other ALP groups. The only difference is that it is attached to the Stamp Glamp retreat classroom, and only the retreat members can use it.
It has an activity feed, a forum, and its own gallery. I personally recommend that you post all of your Stamp Glamp projects to the main activity feed so that they end up in your own personal gallery, but you are free to add your photos wherever you like. But please feel free to share GIFs, other fun stamping photos, and anything Stamp Glamp related, inside the group!
This group will not go away. You will have access to the Stamp Glamp Campground as long as you remain a member of the Awesome Ladies Project community.
Learn to Stamp Email Course
If you’re not yet familiar with stamping, I’ve got a 4 part email course for you called Learn to Stamp! Each lesson is a video from a previously recorded course and I’ll teach you the basics of stamping and bring you up to speed!
