September - A Year in Time.

My daughters both love One Direction and we were lucky enough to get tickets (purchased well over a year before the actual concert). So you can imagine the excitement come September :) not only did we organise for the girls to go in a stretch limo we had fanatic seats, only 10 rows back for the stage. The lads put on an awesome show Miss six is adamant that Harry smiled and waved at her lol just love the innocence.

Using the reverse September foundation page, lots of distressing with Ingvild Bolme distressing tool and TH Vintage distress ink as previously done with the majority of the pages within my album. After using my stamps last month I forgot how versatile and fun they are. Will definitely be using them more often now.

1.  Using the reverse of the G45 September foundation A Place In Time page I cut and distressed all the edges, folded and creased then inked in random spots and adhered it to a piece of matching brown bazzill.

2.  Using Kaiser Butterfly stamp inked with Vintage Photo place image in top right corner.
3.  The coordinating cut apart from September didn't quite fit in so from my stash I grabbed a Prima notecard Madeline collection to frame my photo. Inked with Vintage Photo distress ink.

4. Place a Dusty Attic Vintage clock chippie in the corner, I left mine raw.
5. The flowers were left over from other projects and just happened to be lying on my desk and actually fitted in quite well, think they are Petaloo and a Prima blossom spray. Ink a small piece of gauze and arrange blossoms adding a Prima chipboard ticket and Thickers foam lettering - Daydream.

6. I made a bunting banner from scrap paper and adhered to some string.

7. With a Prima clock chippie, feather and beige seam binding made into a bow finishes the embellishing.

8. Using Carolee's Creation Adorn it tiny etched natural alphas I journaled the occasion.

So tell me, have you ever started a project then get so busy that you put off completing it? It's starting to get a bit like that with this album. So far behind but only three more months and it's finally completed.

Thanks for visiting!

August - A Year in Time

Hello, back to share another page in the G45 - A Year in Time  album. You may remember earlier in the year my son got himself the most adorable puppy, well she has grown and grown but still has so many puppy habits lol, she loves to chew (as you will see from her collar - lol) and still destroys most of her toys.

To make this page I used some of the following products:
G45 Place in Time 8x8 pad
TH Artful Flight & Artful Things mini stamps
Kaiser Cherish Stamp
Crafters Workshop Stencil - Mini Bricks
TH Distress Inks - Worn Lipstick & Broken China
TaterAngels Glimmermists - Santa Baby & Jack Frost
Jo Sonja's Gesso

1.  Using the reverse of the G45 August foundation A Place In Time page I cut and distressed all four edges with my distressing tool. I like to cut my page a little smaller than the album and adhere to coloured bazill, this time I used
2.  Using the Mini Bricks template and TH worn lipstick distress ink I placed on upper left & lower right corners. Spritz with TA glimmermists Santa Baby & Jack Frost.
3. Lightly ink all edges with TH Broken China distress Ink.

Now the fun, building your page :)

4. Position where you would like your photo but don't adhere it there just yet.

5. Next take your stamps and add some shrubbery in the background, I used TH Artful Flight & Artful Things mini with TH Vintage photo distress ink (my favourite) most will be covered by fence, photo and flowers. Using Kaiser Cherish stamp place image above photo in centre.

6. Using a chipboard fence paint with gesso before lightly sanding to give an aged worn look. Place on either side of your photo.
7. Take the August Cut Aparts reverse, make a bunting flag and place under photo. Use tiny provocraft alpha stickers, choose a word which relates to your photo, in my case 'Grow' and place.

8. Using twine, form a circle and place over your photo, this helps bring attention to your subject.
9. Using a bigshot or a die cut machine cut a paper florish from left overs and arange in bottom right cornor and position some prima flowers and vine and you are done.
