3 Helpful Tips for Creating Simple and Colorful Layouts with Mega Label Love Stamp Set (video tutorial)

by Nathalie

Hello there! Nathalie with you today to share ideas on creating simple and colorful layouts with the new Mega Label Love Stamp Set. The sentiments in this new stamp set are bold and versatile. The resemblance to old-school made labels makes them graphic and the perfect complement to all types of paper crafting projects.

I want to show you how the new Mega Label Love Stamp set can help you create simple and colorful memory keeping layouts.  Let’s start…

Repetition is the key!

The shape of the images is simple and angular which helps to build background on layouts.

This page shows how easily you can build a background by repeating the sentiment in an orderly manner.  The rectangles  look like a block wall behind your image.

The soft background –Sweet Dreams Mini Ink Cube set– brings a neutral tone to the layout. Adding a pop of color in the title brings attention to the page, especially when mixing the graphic design of the Mega Label Love stamp set with the handwritten look of the Mega Brush Alpha stamp set.

Create a focal point!

Using the idea of repetition, you can easily transform your background to create a focal point for your layout. Consider creating a guiding line/chevron line.

The key to creating the angle is a piece of washi tape and a pencil-drawn line. This time, consider repeating the stamping but introducing a second color (Green Fields Mini Cube Ink set, Red Sunset Mini Ink Cube set).  The color lines help to bring the eye to the junction of the lines.

Use a bolder color ink to create one of the Mega Label Love stamp images and combine it with a contrasting smaller image for your title. This time, I am emphasizing the theme of the layout with the Snail Mail stamp and die set, and using the chevron line to connect the photo and title together.

Create embellishments!

Have fun with the stamp, and create embellishments for your layout.

Creating simple and colorful memory keeping layouts with the new Mega Label Love Stamp set is easy. Use the stamp set to create tags for a festive banner. The new Mixed Media inks are the perfect way to create the textural tags (canvas paper): stamp, heat and cut! Mix these with a few extra tags (Terrific Tags Die Set) and bundle them together.

Create a simple title by repeating a sentiment with a family of colors (Lapis Lazuli Mini Cube ink set) and it is done! The following video will show you how the pages come together.  You can watch it here, or in HD at the Altenew YouTube channel:

I hope these give you a few more ideas for the Mega Label Love Stamp set.  Cannot wait to see what you create with it!
