Biltmore - last page

Okay, finally done with the layouts for our Biltmore trip so many years ago. And now I've decided I'll make my own album from scratch, cross your fingers. I'll post it when done.

This is just a wrap up page I like to do for our trips with a big pocket (this one with copper mesh) to hold maps, receipts, brochures and any notes. I used my NEW ATG gun on this, I think I'll like it.

The pocket I made with rough cb cut into 2 frames, lined with the extra thick adhesive that comes in a big sheet, needed something thicker to hold the copper mesh. Slipped copper over one frame, other frame on top of that. There are no sharp edges of copper that way. Then covered the frame with mitred pp, all from Cosmo Cricket.

Tina, this is what I was inking up my fingers with!!! Grungeboard hinges, inked them with copper catseye, kept the little "holes" and ran them back and forth over black ink, dropped a dab of glue into each hole and popped the black inked holes back in as fake nails. Kewl huh!

Had to share this pic of Yoda, funny how the camera caught his tail LOL!

More off my list - Pic reloaded

Boy photographing a double pager is tough! This is crooked as all get out, but it looks great irl. I may try again tomorrow.

This is again, a combination of a Commit2Paper and Scrapgoods kit with lots of my own bazzill cs, flowers. Couldn't find exactly the color ep for the scrolls and journal tag so I mixed three!!!! Have you ever tried that? Just be sure to NOT mix glossy with rough textured like TH distressed, not much telling what results you'll get. Inkadinkado fall stamp with white ink and the title was done with my NEW Cricut Cartridge Designer's Calendar, love that.

One more "Wrap Up" page and this project is DONE. I'll reload all the pages when done so you can see the entire trip. I'm thinking of making an album to hold it, have some 12x12 cs and various binding ideas, we'll see if I get that ambitious.

Commit2Paper Oct09 Kit!!!

You like Daisy D's? Who am I kidding, we all like Daisy D's! Puffy Thickers, Daisy D's chipboard stickers, BoBunny Chunk Charms and ribbon round out the kit.

Here's the kit and my first layout with it, ain't Boo too funny? Used a sketch from our OSU buddy Lissa, thanks for the inspiration!

Not happy with the pic of my layout, I'll try to retake it tomorrow.
