July SOTM Blog Hop - Highlight Reel

Welcome to July's Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month, we are featuring the stamp set "Highlight Reel" - a set of 23 stamps. This stamp set highlights so many possible things - a first home, car, concert, pet, holiday, date, birthday, vacation, etc. And it doesn't have to be a FIRST - it can be an any occasion stamp set! The bloggers along this blog hop will certainly show you many ways to use this stamp set, so sit back and enjoy the tour. 

You should have arrived here from Haley Dyer's blog

If you get lost, a list of all participating bloggers can be found on
 Melinda Everitt's blog.

The stamp set looks like this.

I chose to create a layout with this stamp set plus a few other stamps to help me out. 
I found this layout on Pinterest and I loved the design. I think the artist may be Connie Prince but I am not sure.
My little dog, Mika, loves to watch me from my bedroom as I get ready for bed at night. She won't leave but just watches my every move - perhaps to make sure I won't leave her. 
I used a triadic colour scheme for my layout (three colours equally spaced apart on the colour wheel). It is amazing how this really works! The Tangerine and Peacock cardstock pieces were stamped with patterns. I masked the image between the words of the title as I wanted to place a paw print there instead. The chevrons were sliced and manipulated in Design Space (much work) to get them to fit beside each other. 

I hope you enjoyed my project. 

The next blog on this hop is Lauren Moore's blog.
I am sure she has something wonderful to share with you.
