Stamped Layout: Heaven is a Little Closer in a Cabin by a Stream

This layout is definitely "old school."  My very first layout 17 years ago was stamped.  I stamped the background of this layout because I couldn't find any paper that I felt fit my photos.  To create my background paper I used two Stampendous stamp sets:  Jumbo Pinecone Boughs and Jumbo Cardinals.  I also used two Close to My Heart (CTMH) stamp sets:  Autumn Splendor for part of the background, and Pure Adventure for the "Limited Edition" stamp.  The title stamp was by Impression Obsession.  The wood frame around the title stamp is a Cuttlebug die and matching embossing folder.  I used Copics to add a little additional color to specific stamped images and to add detail to the embossed title frame. I matted the journaling and the photos.  Yup, definitely "old school" scrapbooking by today's standards.
