You are mixed media mini album

I love paper. But sometimes it’s fun to play with other materials, like I did in this mini album. It has paper, cardboard, canvas all wrapped into one mini album with some cute and funny photos of my kids. The first page is made from corrugated cardboard. On the front I made the two colored background with a Vaseline resist technique. The other side is covered with patterned paper and torn to reveal the corrugated cardboard. The second page is a canvas with a mask background and a really fine cutting of a flower from a patterned paper. The other side is covered with paper with some funny hand writing. The next page is also canvas. The canvas side is stamped and misted. I also added some hand cut clouds. The other side is covered with paper with a handmade sun as a focal point. The last page has a mask and stamping on the canvas side and patterned paper …

Interactive Design Tutorial – Forest soccer

This layout has a really fun technique to it…a turning flap! The theme of the layout is soccer and I wanted to add something interactive to it to compliment the theme. Since we are talking about soccer I thought why not add a turning round flap that hides and reveals a hidden photo? This is really easy to make. 1.       Cut a circle from cardstock. Make sure that the diameter of the circle equals the combined height of two photos. For example if you use two 4″ by 6″ photos the diameter of the circle has to be 8″. 2.       Cut the circle in half. 3.       Adhere the two photos to your layout one above of the other. 4.       Attach the circle to the layout with a brad. The point of attachment should be between the two photos in the center. The brad will allow it to turn and you can reveal and hide the photos. This is another DT …
