ScraPerfect! BTS Scrapbook Page BLOG CANDY
WELCOME! Fall is here! The kids are back to school and the leaves are changing.
This will be the last year I get to scrapbook about "BTS", next year, she's off to college!
I used a glossy card stock for the background, I have quite a few colors in my secret stash, and printing on them would be impossible if not for the Perfect Crafting Pouch. I'm also a huge fan of texture, fabric leaves and flowers and GLITTER! This layout has it all. I'm so happy that The Best Glue Ever! stays tacky after it dries, it's PERFECT (no pun intended) for applying fabric flowers, leaves and ribbon. It won't soak through the item and you don't have brads going through your layout that get caught up when trying to slip them into the album.
Use the Perfect Cleaning cloth to clear up any tacky areas that you don't want tacky and to eliminate static electricity when using glitter.
The Perfect Crafting Pouch, The Best Glue Ever!, The Perfect Cleaning Cloth (ScraPerfect)
Autumn Stripes glossy card stock (Murdock Country Creations)
Computer, printer, .doc file (see below)
Gold embossing powder
red fine art glitter
fabric fall leaves
Baer paint chip
Dark Distressed Red card stock, gold glitter alphabet (The Robin's Nest)
Sewing Machine w/ Red thread
Plantin Schoolbook Cricut Cartridge (cut at 2 3/4" Bold)
First, I created a word processing document with a photo block and flourishes (image at the end of this post for your reference) and applied the Perfect Crafting Pouch to the glossy card stock before printing the document. **If you can adjust how much ink to use on your printer, lessen the ink output. When it's done printing, dump the embossing powder over the wet ink and heat emboss. Let cool completely. Apply the Perfect Crafting Pouch again over the embossed areas then add detailing w/ The Best Glue Ever! and apply the red glitter, dump excess and let dry completely before cleaning the layout with the Perfect Cleaning Cloth. Adhere photo in place, slip the paint chip behind the upper left corner of the photo. While you are waiting for the glittered glue to dry, you can apply some squiggles of glue below the photo at this time, so it will also be dry at the same time and you can place your leaves.
Cut the large BTS letters, the name is printed on transparency film, the dates are stickers.
Assemble the title block. Use a small amount of glue behind the letters on transparency, then sew lines with red thread horizontally to secure edges.
Thank you for stopping by the blog, I hope you enjoyed this project.

Love how the colors say FALL which we all know is BTS. So does this mean you are all caught up with scrapbooking? Even when my kids head off to college, I fear I'll be scrapping their BTS for years to come!ReplyDelete
Cleaver use of the paint chip! Probably could do that for almost any holiday color theme. You can always print directly onto the paint chip if you use your Perfect Crafting Pouch. At least with my printer, I don't get a good enough image unless I treat it first.
Where did you find the flourishes for the .doc? Did you google something in images?
VERY cool ideas!! Even COOLer products :)ReplyDelete
Great layout. Love the colors. So rich. I'm a new follower. Thanks for a chance to win.ReplyDelete
Mom2Two, I have tons of baby pics and some other early ones left to scrap,but I didn't really learn to take good photos until I started scrapping reg. in 1999 :o) Once in a while I scrap my bad pics. LOL The flourishes are images of my own rubber stamp designs, I have the .doc file and will share it with anyone who wants to email me at email@example.com. I wanted to include the freebie w/ this post but couldn't get a good scan .jpg file. Yes, I've printed on paint chips before too but wanted to also go over the top of the cut out BTS and didn't want to push my printer too badly :o) it's a large format and acts up occasionally. Thanks for following Bab O'Mara!! Welcome, hope you'll visit lots!ReplyDelete
