Autumn Leaves Stitched Journaling Panels Stamp Set Review



What is it?

A set of six stamps from Autumn Leaves designed by Maryann Wise. The stamps are generally 5 to 6 square inches a piece. They have a subtle stitched pattern that shows up well when stamped.



What projects can I use them for?

These stamps mostly work for layouts but can be adapted to cards with some creativity. Also they are great for smaller layouts created for mini books and such.



Below I used two stamps to get more journaling in:

The arrow works to journal but also as an embellishment drawing attention to the photo:





Also they combine well with other stamps including the Autumn Leaves swirl stamp used below:



So are there any drawbacks?

The amount of space to write the journaling on is limited so if you have a long story to tell consider another journaling method. As an alternate method you could use more than one of them stamps on the same layout. Also because of the size they may look a bit small on a 12x12 layout but would work very well for mini albums.



Anything else I need to know?

You can find this Autumn Leaves stamp set as well as many others in the Scrappy Jo store. The stamps don’t absorb ink as readily as some others and are easy to clean.
