The Studio Challenge - A New Technique

This is my very first blog post as a DT member over at The Studio Challenge. I couldn't be more excited!
The challenge this time is to use a technique you've have never used on a scrapbook page before. The technique I used? I saw someone use a regular die cut punch a few months ago to make a border with extra interest. I decided to give it a go with my postage stamp punch. I love the results!
This is the layout I created. The photos are from Charlotte's first year (month 1-12). All the photos have a bit of journaling underneath them to describe what she was doing in the picture or when the picture was taken. The base paper (the grey at the top) is from S.E.I.. I used border pages from both of Bella Blvd's baby collections (Baby Boy and Baby Girl) . The onsies and elephant are also from those same pages. The title was cut out using my Silhouette Cameo (and finished off with My Little Shoebox alpha stickers). I added some Smash Book washi tape to fill the little gap that was at the top. The orange circle at the top is from My Little Yellow Bicycle.
What's a challenge without a prize? We have some gorgeous Teresa Collins stamps up for grabs!
Come show us what new technique you come up with for a chance to win and be sure to stop by the blog to see what the other amazing DT members came up with!
