Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a quick scrapbook layout featuring Stampers Anonymous stamps and stencils.   Stampers Anonymous makes some amazing rubber stamps, including the exclusive Tim Holtz collection.   I recently returned from a vacation in Germany, and the Tim Holtz beer and pretzel blueprint stamps were absolutely perfect to accent one of many photographs I took while traveling.  In Germany, beer is often cheaper than soft drinks or coffee.

Supplies Used:  Stampers Anonymous stamps and stencil, FabScraps patterned paper and metal charm, Ranger Ink and black gesso,  Tombow marker and adhesive, Bo Bunny brads, Brother sewing machine.

This is the Stampers Anonymous stamp set I used.    The set measures 7 x 8.5 and there are four separate cling stamps.  I stamped the mug of beer and the pretzel onto watercolor paper and coloured with a Tombow marker, using a wet paintbrush to spread the colour.
Stampers Anonymous also has a set of 9 acrylic blocks that are perfect for mounting cling, foam or acrylic stamps.  I really like the light weight of these and the large assortment of block sizes.  The grid pattern on makes stamp placement easy and accurate.  I used Tim Holtz foam alphabet stamps and black paint to stamp the page title.
I also used a honeycomb stencil and some white embossing paste to add a little texture to the background.
After the embossing paste dried,  I adhered my photo and the stamped images.  I added a few strips of torn patterned paper, a couple of brads and some journaling.   Another layout is done – very simple, but I think the stamped beer and pretzel are just the perfect embellishment to the page.

If you ever get a chance, be sure to travel to Germany.  It’s such a beautiful country.
