Neat and Tangled did a fantastic job designing a stamp set that not only coordinates perfectly with the Mix Tape kit, but also captures what we love to do here at Scrapbook Circle – help you tell your stories! If inspiration is the kind of help you could use today, we’ve got an entire week lined up on both the Neat and Tangled and the Scrapbook Circle blogs. Tell us what you think in the comments and you could win a $30.00 gift certificate! Creative team member Jennifer is up today with a layout bibliophiles everywhere will love:

Next Reads by Jennifer Larson

To give her row of stamped books some color, Jennifer stamped the image onto one of the patterned papers in the Mix Tape kit. She trimmed out parts of the image and adhered those pieces to her stamped border.

    I have never tried something like this before. But I just might try something like this because I like keeping track of all the books I’ve read and that’s a lot!

    Love how there’s not a piece of paper wasted. the books are stamped upside down to use the tiny piece in the corner.
    The row of books is really pretty.
    I read all the time and do keep a list of the books I’ve read so I can check back when new book in a series is published. I do it on the computer but this would be a pretty way to keep the list if I did it on paper.
    thanks for sharing.

    Great looking project.
    I keep list of my books
    but not to this scale!
    Would be fun to do though.

    FABULOUS layout!!!
    LOVE the list of reads, great to see so much handwriting too … I confess, I don’t share my writing very often but always enjoy reading handwritten notes, cards, lists etc from years gone by, will try to do it more often now 🙂
    LOVE the layout design and striped patterned paper too => THANK YOU for sharing!!!

  • what a fab project–I wouldn’t trim all that out, I’d just color them in–but it looks lovely! And I’d use the stamped colored strips as is for a bg for a card or mat for a photo. It’s so cool with all the colors and books.
