Scrapbooks Plus August DT Kit - Tim Holtz - Family Forever Mini Album
This project has been removed for publication.
Design Team member Karen Bearse selected Tim Holtz's paper collection for the August DT kit. The Lost and Found collection is filled with beautiful, rich vintage designs. As soon as I saw the papers I got right to work. The first project was this fun chipboard album by Basic Grey. I used tags from 7 Gypsies to create an album featuring phrases that focus on the family.
The majority of the pages were covered with patterned paper. I adhered the paper with Zip Dry (for the edges) and Scor Tape.
I used a beautiful transparency between the heavily decorated pages. I cut the transparency using the chipboard pages as a template.
My favorite quote is shown above "Families are like fudge, mostly sweet with a few nuts." Yep, that's my wonderful family.
I love Tattered Angels clear stamps. I used the dragonfly from the Nature Graceful Journey collection.
What is an album without Prima bling? The element to the left is actually plastic packaging. I used alcohol ink to color the plastic.
Thanks so much for joining me today.
