You are...

One of the stamp sets used on this layout was a gift from Stampin' Up! during this year's convention.  It's called "I Am" and is not available to purchase, although I hope that it appears in an upcoming catalog. The set includes the frame and words. Here are a few tips to making this layout.  1) Since I had 19 scrapbookers I knew having them stamp the frames then use the Big Shot to cut them out would be hectic so I experimented. To my surprise, this was one of those rare times where you can actually cut the framelit piece first then stamp.  The only exception were the words since they are a tight fit in the framelit.  2) To save time at the Big Shot, cut the words AND the Summer Starfruit piece at the SAME time. Put them both on the cutting mats, side by side, and run it through just once.  3) The flowers were stamped twice; once in Starfruit and again in Suede. I crumbled them up to give them some texture.
