My first album

A last minute idea.. with 4 hours only to figure it out. I thought I would make a little photo album for my friend. He and his roommate came for a visit last Christmas. I thought I would try out my Cinch that I had never used. I didn't know what  I was doing. I have learned now to strategize better. I was glad I had whittled down the photos. Ya know sometimes less is more! ahahha  I really was stressed trying to get this done. Now I know I want more time to really play with techniques and enjoy the whole process. This is just to show my 4 hour mass heart attack attempt at a journal.  My fingers are still sore... seems  I covered up the holes ... with paper and thought the little paper piercer would do the trick.. uh NO!

On the cover I used a new white washing technique that I learned from a class that I took from Drycha.
Class can be found here.

DA0656 and white washing technique from Drycha's class

Page 2 as seen below I used the arrows from 3rd Eye : TES-015. I used some Prima flowers and brown lace.

David and Dave

On this page I used DA #7 Ornate Corner and TES-006, TES-018. The Kardiogram and the See With The Heart stamp.
Aren't they funny.
On this page I used the 2 hearts from 3rd Eye along with a Melissa Frances RubOn; TES-002, TES-003
This is page 5 here.. Terry and David. I used 3rd Eye Frame stamp : TES-025
David trying to be taller.

Page 6 here I used 3rd Eye Wind Corners : TES-013. I used a MS punch.
No clue about the fingers lol!
Page 7 here : I decided to add some nice Trim that Ms. Elena sent me.. and the butterfly from Jrabs. How cool was that! More Wind Corners from 3rd Eye : TES-013

Just having a laugh

Page 8 here... lots more Prima flowers and Prima trinkets.
Still no clue about the fingers.

Page 9: I used lights from 3rd Eye : TES-041. I used Walgreens for the first time directly and I loved playing with their borders option. I tried a different border on every pic. I loved it.  In this I also used a DA0393-Pocket Watch.

Oh how fun it is to play!
Page 10:  I used the flowers from 3rd Eye : TES-023. I love how they went along the edge. I also used a GORGEOUS BUTTERFLY.. from Renea's Etsy .. HER SHOP CAN BE LOCATED HERE.

laughter : photograph memories

Page 11: I used the Santa from 3rd Eye : TES-044. More Prima flowers and their lightbulb.  Love using my Washi Tape.

Page 12: I used 3rd Eye light bulbs again with Prima little light bulbs. TES-041. Say it in Crystals from Prima. This page is titled TO US.

to us
Page 13 :Once again.. fast and furious.. I used Pandora from 3rd Eye TES-031. More Prima flowers as well. 

Friends gone wild
Page 14: Over here I thought hey lets try some masking... Prima Mask Gears... and flowers and some Tim Holtz key

oh happy day

Page 15 almost done...I used DA0629 #2. I also used some Vintaj Natural Brass elements. I also used some Tim Holtz ChitChat Stickers. 


Page 16 last page.. whew....I used my favorite rose stamp from 3rd Eye TES-020 and Olivia TES-037. I used some washi tape on here as well.
Another fave shot.

I learned a lot making this journal. I used pizza boxes for every page and then covered. I should NOT cover up the holes and I think next time I will go ahead and thread the book and work from that angle.  It was a last minute gift thought request. I've already started saving my pizza boxes because I plan to do more.

Products used:
Prima Flowers
Dusty Attic
Tim Holtz

Merry Christmas and Happy Scrappn!
