Recollections Photo Box Finished

Hello it’s Glen here tonight watching the Olympics and catching up on posts. So finally my photo box is done, I am happy with the results but wonder if I should have done more with it? I will let the viewers decide that on their own. It was all made possible with the ScraPerfect products you can purchase here.

Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to check out the other projects on this blog for great ideas!

Recollections Photo Box-Part 2

Hi Folks
It’s Glen here for you now with the second installment of my project!

A small amount of glue.

I start decorating the edges of the lid with papers, I chose a theme of old time photography and film-making as a theme for this box but I have ambition to make a Steampunk and a Secret Garden box someday too.

Front of lid time to drill!

I am using the Best Glue Ever with the No-Clog Writing Tip to apply the glue easily and sparingly as well as precisely where I want it!

Won these online woohoo!

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             I decide to use only one draw pull on the front and save the other, but I also have to pry off the label holder and replace it after I apply paper. I use the Best Glue Ever to replace the holder after re-punching the lineup holes in the paper.

Corner guards.
The back lid and a side.

I use the always great  Embellie Gellie to pick up brads and place them in the holes of the corner guards.

So you can see it’s coming along nicely and next time maybe I’ll be able to show the final reveal. That is if I don’t go too far with my embellishment! But it wouldn’t be so easy without the wonderful products available at ScraPerfect. Go there and see all that’s available. Well with more snow and ice tonight and a very big storm this Sunday predicted, I’ll have plenty of time to create. Thanks for reading and don’t forget to check the other projects on this blog.
See you soon

Recollections Photo Box-Part 1

Hi Folks
This is Glen here with an exciting new project which will take a few posts to get to the reveal but it will be worth it in my opinion. This is the second photo box I’m making, the first being a Christmas box I did before I was a member of this team.

Thin line of glue is all you need.

I am using the Best Glue Ever to adhere paper elements to my project, having already adhered the large pieces of paper to the lid and sides a long time ago I have the fun now of inking and detailing. Which is also the best part of any project.

Best Glue Indeed!

I fussy cut the old camera and glue it to another paper to give the back some interest as well. Why? you ask. I could tell you but that would spoil the post

This is another great use for Embellie Gellie!

 

I continue using the Best Glue Ever to add more elements to my box and the No-Clog Writing Cap is the key to great and easy work.

Stay tuned for more pics and follow the progress of this project in the coming weeks. Thanks for stopping by and check out the others work on this blog.
