8" x 8" Layout Friends

Good morning

At last I have come to the final page of the 8" x 8" album I am doing for my grand-daughter which covers the year of 2018. I must admit I have dragged the chain with this album I usually create a mini book for her to showcase each year but decided last year to use an 8" album. I let it get too far behind and felt it was a chore to get it finished. This year I am going back to making an album and just adding the photos as the events happen.

I created a video showing the process of making this page. You can see it here.

The papers are Kaisercraft's Party paper range. I have also seen this range referred to as Partytime.

The background for the photos is created using 6 squares that are 2.25". A couple of the papers were quite plain so I used a Swiss Dots embossing folder to add some interest to them.

For the embellishments on this page I cut a couple of strips of patterned paper and punched the edge of one of them using an American Crafts punch. I used a die to cut the pink "Good Times" circle from one of the patterned papers and a slightly large die to cut the black cardstock mat. The strips were attached using d/s tape and the circle was attached using foam tape.

The pennant banner was cut on my Scan N Cut. I cut the original pennant using Spellbinders Nested Lacy Pennants and then scanned that into my Scan N Cut, this enabled me to resize it. I used two sizes so I could create a mat for the patterned paper pennants.

Some black crochet cotton was glued to the page and attached at each end with a brad before the pennants were glued on so they butted up to the crochet cotton.

The photos had the edges filed with an emery board to give them a white border before attaching them to black mats. The larger photo is attached with d/s tape and the other one is attached with foam tape.

That completed this very simple page.
