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.

The Little Things – Oct 12th 2013

Evenin All

I made these great little Halloween journal tickets between last night and tonight after I continued work on bigger things. I just needed to do something small and satisfying. I used these cartoon like  Studio G stamp sets I got on clearance and after three I had a genius attack! I left the tear off piece on the bottom of the ticket to make a little stand! In the photos it looks like it leaning on the Distress ink pads but it’s not! When I made the little skeleton girl I used Distress markers to make it look like a stage at school, it looks better in person of course. The possibilities with these are endless and I wish I could have found a mummy; always my favorite. But maybe on EBAY I will find it and others too!

 This little exercise made me think of how big fun can be had with little stamp sets and small ideas. So I will go back to work and listen to some more Rilo Kiley.
